Product Description

Polarized is one of those names that reek of marketing. It's a pity as Polarizing does a simple, great thing. Polarized lenses block glare and improve your vision in bright, reflected light. Oakley figured out how to improve the existing technology, and that's why they they're now making Polarized lenses. Putting XL polarized lenses into their new Fast Jacket makes a great package for eye protection on those long, sunny days in the saddle. You've surely noticed that distracting sources of light are those in front of and below you. Snow is obvious, but glare can also be harsh on the water, on the road, and from shiny cars on the road. The application here is similar to a Venetian blind for your lenses, with the horizontal lines blocking the glare. PPutting XL polarized lenses into their new Fast Jacket makes a great package for eye protection on those long, sunny days in the saddle. You'll see better, and you'll squint less. In the end you'll be more rested because your eyes don't have to work so hard to see. What makes Oakley polarizing different is that they figured out how to integrate the filter into their lenses without applying glue. Their competitors typically sandwich the filter between thin layers of lenses using clear glue. The glue is often the source of the slight distortion you experience when wearing some polarized glasses. Another plus of Oakley polarizing is they make both the right and left lenses at the same time and cut them out in parallel pieces so the filter lines up exactly the same way for both eyes. This is one less piece of optical information for your eyes and brain to adjust to: another reduction in eyestrain. The Fast Jacket is Oakley applying their Switchlock technology to open edge lens architecture. So you can get the benefits of their race-specific Jawbone in a style that is technical enough to be worn for hard riding and casual enough to hang out at the beach. The Switchlock is a lever that locks into place and yet easily opens up...

The Iconic Oakley Fast Jacket

Oakley took the idea of “adapt and conquer” to the extreme. Oakley Fast Jacket™ is a performance product with a unique interchangeable lens design that lets you match your optics to your environment. Switching out the lenses is fast and easy, thanks to Switchlock™ Technology. It’s an innovation that locks the lenses in place with a quick release system. With Switchlock, the lenses are securely suspended without any stresses that could alter the optics, so you’ll have premium clarity with true, accurate vision. Oakley shaped stainless steel with metal injection molding to create a convenient button that releases each lens. That means minimal handling and no hassle. Just put in a new lens set and go.

Between sunrise and sunset, there’s a whole spectrum of possibility, but you can’t take advantage of it unless your vision can adapt. If the sun pulls a disappearing act or busts its way through the clouds, just swap out the lenses with a different set. The advantages don’t stop there. Pro athletes know it takes the right combination of light filtering, glare blocking, visual contrast and color balance to help them perform at their best, and it varies from sport to sport and place to place. With Fast Jacket™, they have the power to adapt.

Oakley Fast Jacket™ comes with two sets of interchangeable lenses. Oakley formulated one set for bright sun and engineered the other for lower light, so you’ll be ready for a wide range of environments. It all stows conveniently in the included case.
