Cam Phillipswrote a review of Oakley Fast Jacket XL Sunglasses on March 29, 2015
I just ordered a pair, sight unseen, and am super stoked to be getting them!
Where I'm coming from: My only real complaint about my Flak Jackets, even in the XLJ, is that they leak light while MTBing and I find that distracting. Here in So Cal, it's bright on most rides, and leaking light is a reality. Additionally, the terrain tends to be dry and loose, with hella debris coming up from your tires. I've had stuff make it past the Flaks to my eyes. My Racing Jackets solve both those issues, and I have grown to love those, but I still find the lower frame to be distracting sometimes, and they fog up more easily than the Flaks or Radars, especially on cooler morning rides and on longer, sustained climbs.
So I am hoping that the Fast Jackets will strike a good middle ground: more light and debris coverage than the Flaks, and better venting and peripheral view than the Racing Jackets. I should be able to get a ride in with them when they arrive this week, and I will update my review in a few weeks when I have some trail time with them under my belt.
