In competitive sport, the difference between victory and defeat often comes down to preparation. If you want to win (and who doesn’t?), you have to be ready for anything—especially changing light and weather conditions.
That’s why Oakley created Fast Jacket™, a sunglass style emboldened with Switchlock Technology™ so you’re prepared for anything the elements might throw at you.
Oakley’s Fast Jacket™ features two simple switches—one on each side of the sunglasses. In the “up” position, the lenses are locked in place. But with a quick flick to the “down” position, lenses can be effortlessly removed from the frame and replaced with a second lens-type. So when your environment goes from light to dark or dry to wet, Fast Jacket™ prepares you to adapt in as little as three seconds.
Switchlock™ interchangeable lens technology allows for fast, secure interchangeable lenses Hi-Strength Metal Injection Molded (MIM) Stainless Steel Switchlock™ mechanism.

Switchlock™ Technology: You won’t believe how fast and easy it is to change lenses on your Fast Jacket™ sunglasses. Simply flip the switch on the temple downward to unlock it. Then slide one lens out, put the new one in, and return the switch to the locked (upright) position. Repeat the same action on the other side and you’re done. With such minimal handling, the whole process takes about as long as tying your shoes.
Lens Suspension System: Stress sucks. It can compromise HDO by causing optical distortion. Introducing a revolutionary frame architecture that creates a suspension system for your lenses. They virtually float around the orbital space, isolated from compressive stresses for maximum optical clarity, comfort and fit.
Hydrophobic®: 0:30 Water Test (5 MB) 1:04 Marker Test (10 MB) Oakley Hydrophobic™ is a permanent lens coating that prevents water from leaving streaks and sheens, which can compromise vision. Whether it’s rain, sweat or splashing runoff, H2O can’t get a foothold. And that’s just half the story. Skin oils, fingerprints and lotions are easily wiped away without leaving a residue, eliminating the haze that makes ordinary lenses a nightmare to keep clean. We even made the coating anti-static so it won’t attract dust and dirt like ordinary lenses.
High Definition Optics® (HDO®) take advantage of patented innovations, like XYZ Optics® for unbeatable clarity at all angles of vision — even at the sides of lens contours that open peripheral view and optimize protection against sun, wind and side impact. HDO® lenses surpass all ANSI Z87.1 standards for clarity, refraction and prism.
Polarized: Oakley HDPolarized sunglasses put harsh, blinding glare in a sleeper hold without compromising the clarity of your vision.
Lens Tints: Oakley Iridium® lens coatings allow you to tune transmission for any light condition, and get the best vision in bright sun.
UV Protection: The comfortably lightweight Plutonite® lens material filters out 100% of all UVA, UVB and UVC.
Lens Clarity: Oakley’s patented XYZ Optics® maintains precise clarity at all angles of vision, not just straight ahead like ordinary lens optics.
Impact Protection: The materials and geometries of Oakley eyewear provide unsurpassed protection against impact.
