Sport professionals demand nothing less than the best, and we’ve answered their challenge for decades. World-class athletes have driven us to create innovation after innovation, including interchangeable lens designs with unbeatable optical clarity. Flak Jacket® takes that to the next level with the latest in performance technology.
The clarity of High Definition Optics® was just our starting point. We created a Hydrophobic™ lens coating to repel water, skin oils and debris, so the best vision on earth stays crystal clear. When the sun fades or flares on athletes like freeride legend Wade Simmons, the interchangeable lens design lets them adapt. Two sizes of nose pads help them achieve a secure fit that optimizes comfort.
Oakley Hydrophobic™ is a 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 ANSI Z87.1 standards for clarity, refraction and prism.
Interchangeable Lens: This gives athletes the best performance possible in any sport environment, and even lets them keep up with changing light. We created a full spectrum of lens options that help them optimize their vision.
The Perfect Fit:
We designed Flak Jacket® with interchangeable nose pads, so you can pick the size that gives you a comfortable and precise fit. Two sizes come with every frame. You also get the best frame technologies in sports.
Stays in Place: To make sure the frame stays secure during sport competition, the nosepiece and stem sleeves are made of Oakley Unobtainium®. It’s a proprietary synthetic that actually increases grip with perspiration.
Comfort: We engineered Flak Jacket® to be so lightweight, you’ll forget you have it on. Unlike ordinary frames that hook the ears, Flak Jacket® offers the comfort of a Three-Point Fit with balanced pressure points.
Protection: Our O Matter® frame material is engineered to withstand the abuse of athletics. It’s one of the reasons why Flack jacket® meets ANSI Z87.1 standards for high-mass and high-velocity impact protection.

Eine super Brille, mit hohem Tragekomfort.
Mir stehen nur wenige Sonenbrillen, aber diese hat mir auf Anhieb gefallen.
Ein erstklassiges Design.
Das Tragen ist für die Augen sehr angenehm, da die Brille die Sonneneinstrahlung optimal reduziert.
Ich kann die Oakley nur jedem weiterempfehlen....

I bought a pair of Radars (also 5/5) for cycling but they were a bit too much for normal use. So I stuck with Oakley and tried the Flak Jacket. They are very light and the lens colour suits me fine. I don't like pure black.

I got these glasses a few weekes ago and they are amazing, the special coated lenses repel water completely. i was wearing them and got splashed and they where literal dry (no joke). They are a bit on the steep side in price but are of exelent quality.
They also come in a hard case and bag, also the nose pads are supper grippy.
