  • Great lenses, comfortable frame, poor design

    The lenses themselves are amazing. The Prizm Black Polarized lenses are definitely worth the money when compared to the standard grey almost-plastic lenses in the cheaper versions of these glasses. The down side? While the frame arms have a rubber covering for comfort when behind your ear, the tips of the frame arms are exposed metal. The issue is that, when folded, there is almost no way to prevent those tips from rubbing against the glass, which will, in turn, eventually wear out some portion of the coating of the inside of the lenses. This leaves annoying, un-cleanable, and unrepairable scratches on the lenses that can be seen when worn. Just to be clear: when brand new, the folded arms do not touch the lenses at all. Over time with standard wear, however, eventually the arms do fold down to the point where they are in constant contact with the lenses. Worn folded hung on the V/neck portion of my shirt or in my pocket or any other container for that matter, they will eventually come into contact with, rest upon, and scratch the lenses as shown in the highlight in the photo above. And it doesn't even take years for this to happen; this specific version happened in less than six months of ownership.

    Unfortunately, this is not a new problem. The prior generation of these glasses (formerly known as the "Predators") had the same design flaw. Equally unfortunately, due to the thin and minimalist design of the frame and frame arms, I have not found another safe, compact, convenient, and reasonable way to transport the glasses without this situation occurring; the carrying case the glasses come with is too large and bulky to fit in a normal pocket and has no strap or hook or loop where I could attach something like a lanyard easily to it, and the same goes for the glasses themselves. I am not hard on my glasses and take care to clean them regularly. I do not sit on, misplace, or lose my glasses either. This is just a case of form over function leading to a bad design that no one at Oakley seems to want to correct.

    If you can store the glasses in the accompanying case at all times when you are not wearing them, you will not have this problem, and I would highly recommend these glasses!

    UPDATE: I have added a third photo of the glasses when they are folded. You can see in the right circle that the arm tip touches the lens -- you can see the lack of a gap in the reflection of where the arm tip is) whereas in the left circle there is clearly a gap between the arm and the lens. If I fold the arms the opposite way, the same touch occurs on the left side with a gap on the right side. When new, folding the arms kept the tips well away from the lenses. This is just what happens over time with these glasses -- exactly the same as the prior "Predator" versions -- with wear, the arms draw closer and closer to the lenses until they are touching/scraping. It's just a design flaw. I may need to find a way to coat/cover the arm tips to prevent scratching on my next pair.

  • Company was great shipped quickly

    Company was great shipped quickly. Well packaged. I've been a huge oakley fan for about 10 years now. I could never wear sunglasses before oakley. Other brands always gave me a headache. I haven't left the house without a pair of oakley In my pocket since. I own 4 pair. Bought these to replace a broken pair of tightrope style. These are not the same quality. Made in china. Feels very plasticy don't quite fit right. I'm not impressed with them for the price. Lenses are ok and vision is similar to other oakleys I have. Frame quality is more like something I'd buy locally for $20.

  • Strong sunglasses

    Great pair of sunglasses, I wear them at work everyday. The frames may look thin, but the metal is extremely strong and durable. Definitely a recommended buy.

  • Worth the money

    A week after receiving my glasses the black paint started to rub away, showing the silver underneath, on the arms. Great fit, very comfortable and sharp looking.
