Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars

Price Paid: 175$ US dollars to euros

Summary

Extremely comfortable. light weight and exceptional clarity. I bought these at a German PX, paid for them in euros so they cost me a bit more than they would have online, but they are worth it.

Pros

  • light weight
  • clear field of view
  • comfortable to wear
  • tight fit but no pressure
  • they stay put
  • extreme amounts of dust and sand didn't faze them

Cons

  • not as much coverage as I would have liked, but I did try them on before i bought them so it's my fault.

I'm gonna keep this short.

They fit great, not too tight but they stay put.

If you are gonna try to adjust them be careful, i did do some minor adjustment to the nose pieces, but that was it.

The main thing i liked about these glasses was the fact that they stayed put, even with driving and riding on some of the roughest roads in the world at speeds that would and have bounced other glasses off my head, these stayed put.

I wore them to the range more times than i could count and never once worried about the lenses. I've had sand and small stones bounce off of them with no noticeable damage.

Plus, they look cool. not too big, not too small. Nice glasses.

Made with a special C-5 alloy that gives you plenty of flex without a lot of weight, these Whisker Sunglasses are not only among Oakley's lightest wire frame designs, they're also reasonably priced--especially if you compare them to the titanium wire designs. This model features neutral transmission gold iridium lenses, one of the darkest XYZ Optics lenses available from Oakley (at 12% visual light transmission, it's 3% off from Oakley's darkest plutonite wonders). Like the larger-frame Oakley sunglasses, the Whisker features Oakley metal icon logos along the hinges, but the detailing is so precise that you'll have to look close to spot the fine artistry.
