Here's what other sites are saying:

The latest iteration from Oakley, the Racing Jacket polarized sunglasses are for life in the sunny fast lane. Each frame includes 2 sets of lenses: 1 set for the bright lights, 1 set for after hours. Polarized lenses reduce 99% of visible glare from water, snow, sand and pavement for increased visual acuity and decreased eye strain. Designed for easy lens swapping, SWITCHLOCK(TM) lens removal system relieves distortion-causing frame pressure by allowing the bottom part of the frame to pivot open. Quick-release removal system minimizes lens handling, so dirty fingers needn't touch lenses; cam lock frame closure securely holds lenses in place. Lightweight, flexible nylon frames resist damaging stresses. Optically correct, shatterproof and scratch-resistant polycarbonate lenses are made for lasting use. Unique 3-point Oakley fit includes optical alignment for sharp accurate vision, impact absorption for improved safety and geometry that extends the peripheral view. Removable retaining strap. Silver frames with polarized Fire Iridium(R) gray tinted lenses are best for medium to bright light; includes additional set of amber lenses for flat to low light. Matte black frames with OO red Iridium polarized lenses, which are best for medium-bright light in hazy skies, stopping asphalt and water glare; set of clear lenses included. Reflective Iridium coating enhances optical clarity and contrast, and reduces glare in varying light. Nose pads and stem sleeves are made from hydrophilic rubber that becomes tackier as you perspire, holding eyewear in place as you move. To preserve the superior optical quality, sunglasses come with a specially woven, electrostatic bag for cleaning and storage.


When the Jawbone was released in 2009, it was easily one of the most outspoken, yet fashion-forward statements in eyewear available. Flash forward to today, and little has changed - the Oakley Racing Jacket continues the tradition of the Jawbone's aggressive styling and superlative fit as still unrivaled in cycling eyewear. It seems like the only manufacturer capable of topping the bold aesthetic of the Jawbone, is Oakley themselves, and for now, they're content with simply improving on the Jawbone. If the Oakley Racing Jacket Sunglasses look a little bit like the Jawbone, that's because they are - almost. The Racing Jacket is constructed from the same flexible but highly durable and lightweight O-Matter frame. The aggressive frame geometry is retained, along with the deep, 8. 75-base curved lenses that provide an excellent neck-saving vertical periphery when you're tucked deep in the drops. The Racing Jacket also includes the same revolutionary Switchlock technology that allows you to easily swap out your lenses and quickly adapt to changing sunlight. Oakley has evolved the feature set of the Jawbone slightly though, making the Racing Jacket a slightly more comprehensive performance package. Firstly, you might notice that the earstems are now perforated, which allows for fitment with an included retention strap for extra security. This opens up a whole host of convenience in moments when your sunglasses have to come off and you can't feasibly free up both hands to tuck them into a jersey pocket or on your helmet - simply let them dangle from the security of your neck. But should you prefer perching your sunglasses on your helmet, or just don't find the strap an absolute necessity for cycling, it can be easily removed. The Racing Jacket is also slightly customizable, as you can now also change out the colored 'O' icons on the earstems with the aid of a paperclip. A simple detail, but one that shows Oakley is listening carefully to those who prefer to tailor ever...
