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...
Whether running, road racing, mountain biking or doing any kind of sport at speed, the Men's Oakley Racing Jacket Sunglasses are a perfect fit.
