Description

Protect your baby blues in the Oakley Flak Jacket XLJ Polarized sunglasses.

Slightly larger lens than the standard Flak Jacket, the Oakley XLJ Flak Jacket Sunglasses feature polarized lenses to give you more protection from the sun's nasty rays. If you're biking and you need to see those berms rushing your way, swap out the Flak Jacket's lenses to suit any lighting condition in a matter of seconds. These shades stay on your dome thanks to Unobtanium rubber temples and nosepiece, which actually get grippier as you sweat. When your trail runs take you into less-than-favorable conditions, Oakley's hydrophobic lens coating repels water, oils, and even dust.

Comfortable and High Performance

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They do as designed, they block the wind on fast rides and are very optically clear. It is a little bit of a challenge to wear these with a bike helmet from the non-dropdown arms, but I got used to it. I wear these near daily and I can say they are the best sunglasses I've even worn.

I gave this to my wife, great price for the quality glasses!

She said: perfect fit (she has a small face), lightweight, easy to clean, lenses are easy to replace and have a very flexible frame.

Also, the case is awesome and the glasses stay in place during her running .

Happy wife

Sexy.

Really enjoy these glasses. They block out wind very well and I'm excited to try road biking with them once I get out of the mountains from winter.

The best

I have been wearing oakley's for years. They're lightweight, comfortable and the lenses are easily replaced.

The Best!

hands down bet running glasses. I recommend these for any active wear. Some people would rather have rudys for running but those don't look as cool. These look cool enough for casual were and for driving around. For cycling, i find larger glasses to work better.

Responded on

I agree; these lenses let in too much wind for cycling...but great for just about everything else!

Best Sunglasses Ever!

I got my first pair of Flak Jackets as a door prize gift and loved them! They fit my face well and look good! I bought another pair a year later because my lenses got all scratched up from taking them through canyons. I would use the old pair for canyoneering and the new pair for driving and day use. They were so stylish that 2 of my friends also bought them! I will definitely buy another pair when the time comes to replace the ones I have now!

Stylin' Brah

These things rock. I have been an oakley fan for the last 11 years or so. Never been disappointed. I got these because my new job need more wrap around eye protection. I had a pair of half jackets that I was very happy with but they were 3+ years old and getting tired. These glasses give me ANSI Z87 rated protection from flying debris and keep me stylin'. The polarization is a plus to keep glare down when I'm off playing after work.

Bottom Line: Buy them. If you can keep a decent pair of shades around then this is what you need!

Great compromise

A great compromise between wire-frames and M-frames. Able to wear these around town and still out adventuring. Plus, in my opinion they look a little better than the Half-Jackets... which look a little too roundish for.

Birthday gift for hubby

Hubby opened 'em up and loved the color combo of the frame and lenses. He played golf wearing them for the first time yesteray and LOVED them! Very happy with the purchasing process and shipping was quick.

Super Shades

Tried a pair on at a local store, but wanted a better price. After two other retailers couldn't get me the shooting package of the non-polarized version, I settled on the polarized version.
The glasses stay in place during my running and biking. I need to get some lighter tints now that it is getting dark so early. The only real issue I have is that my bike helmet strap and some of my hats make me shift the ear pieces into less than optimal positions.
Nice case and cleaning sock.

Sore under my eyes

I have bought a new pair if flack jackets this year and they are really good i love them but when i wear them for a long periods of a time i come out in a horrible sore either side of my nose and just under my eyes and was wondering if any one else had experienced this??

Responded on

you could be allergic to the rubber they use for nose grips "unobtainium nose bombs" they call it, if its latex based. As for under the eyes...could it be sunburn?

Check out the x metal line (juliets, others) that have no rubber on the nose area, just metal frame material. A call into Oakley might help, but since lens crafters bought them, i have no experience with customer support there.

Good luck!

Great Glasses for running/cycling

I wear these glasses for running and cycling and absolutely love them. I have an average sized head and have never had any issues with them slipping or falling off no matter how sweaty I am. I use the polarized gold iridium lenses no matter the time of day or amount of sunlight and have never had any visibility issues. Definitely not a budget item, but if you've got the money to spare you can't go wrong with these glasses.

Can I get these in a progressive lenses?...

Can I get these in a progressive lenses? -- Oakley Flak Jacket XLJ Sunglasses - Polarized

Responded on

Yes you can,but would seriously consider distance only instead because of the progressive design used and cost. I'm an eye doctor and just ordered a single vision pair instead of a progressive in this model. If using for cycling be sure you're not looking over them in a road bike posture - if not use asian design. Tint is personal --- suggest bronze or gold iridium polarized.

Do these have the HD polarized lenses?

Posted on

are the flak xlj larger than the half jacket?

Responded on

The Flak XLJ are just shaped a bit differently than the half jacket. They flare a bit more to the side after it exits the bottom of the frame.

Responded on

XLJ on Half jackets fit me great, where as XLJ on Flak Jackets, the flare tends to bump into my cheekbones. That fact led to the return of my Flak's.

Responded on

If your talking lens size, yea.

i'm 564 years old play golf everyday in hot 90 degree weather...confused about lends..help

Responded on

if you go on Oakley's website and look at these same glasses, there will be a tab called "lenses" where Oakley has simulated the different lens tints for different activities: golf, snow, trails, water activities and jogging.

http://oakley.com/pd/4657?sliver

Responded on

The Oakley site has a great "tool", like the previous comment, you can "see though" different lens offerings, and choose different settings.
The best lens are the polarized/iridium lenses. For partly cloudy conditions; or biking in/out of woods, etc; or even late day or early outings, try transitions' lenses in the clear/black (which are clear in dark conditions, just like prescription lenses, and darken a bit in the sun (but not real dark).

the best sunglasses ever

I thought sunglasses were mainly the same and always bought cheap ones, in case I lost them. These sunglasses have changed my mind completely! Even with direct sun in my eyes, my eyes never hurt I don't have to squint to see. There is no place at the edge for the sun to leak in. They are very comfortable and not overly fragile. These are worth every penny.

awesome

I purchased a pair of half jackets four years ago, but have sadly outgrown them. The flak jackets are a little bigger than the half jackets, and simply amazing. i expect to get at least another four years out of these. their optical clarity, weight, and durability are unmatched; i frequently forget that i'm even wearing them.
