Description

You'd be crazy to let the Straight Jackets pass by.

Oakley Straight Jacket Sunglasses won't make you go crazy like those cheap-ass, distortion-causing shades you got at the gas station. These sport sunglasses feature Oakley's patented XYZ Optics, which provides correction along three axes for astounding clarity across your entire field of view. Composite frames stand up to the abuses of mountain biking or running, and the VR50 lenses are ideal for low-light conditions--like shady trails and overcast days.

Great for MTB

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These are a very affordable sunglasses that provide good protection from the sun. I use it every time I ride and for every day use. Good looking, great fit, lightweight.

Great for Fishing!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I use these with the angling specific lenses which are polarized. Although they are not as dark as other polarized lenses, these are more than adequate for fishing and you can cut through the glare in the water! Would recommend to anyone! Polarized lenses FTW!

  • Fit: True to size

Gave these as a gift to my dad a few years back, he loves wearing them around. Long lasting and durable, these glasses are great.

Awesome Shades!

Ive always been a fan of Oakley sunglasses. When my dog got a hold of my last pair of straight jackets, and Oakley wouldn't sell me some temples (not great customer service) i saw the blood framed, VR28 black iridium lens straight jackets pop up on SAC. I picked them up and couldn't be happier again. The frame is a very deep red and the lens has a slight rose tint to it. It turns everything slightly more red (because the lens blocks blue light) which takes some getting used to but i do feel like the do help with definition. The fit is great for my big head and face.

Not bad

These are nice Shades, i have the ducati ones. the lenses are great quality the frame is stout, however i think they will have issues with the hinges over the life of the glasses they are plastic and part of the frame, this is a weak point in my mind i am glad i got them and the fit is nice and they look great. they are not as nice as the kaenon Rhinos that i had but they are worthy of wear

Great shades!

When I opened them, I thought it wasn't what I ordered. Then I put them on, so light, so comfy, and they look great. I have a small face, and still like them. Great buy!

can i replace the lenses myself? or they have to be sent to oakley?

Responded on

Livenletlive,
These lenses are replaceable. Here is Oakley's link for replacement lenses http://oakley.com/pd/6053 . I'm pretty sure that you can replace them yourself. I have a pair of gascans and have replaced them myself. As for Angus's incorrect review, you should checkmark his review as unhelpful, as many people just try to boost their ranking by answering questions when they do not really know the answer.

Oakley Straight Jacket

The color that I purchased was "Stealth." I anticipated the frames to be a subdued color (dark gray) as pictured, but there is a sparkling/glitter effect in the sunlight. No biggie. I am happy with the overall look, feel, and fit. With Oakley you can't go wrong.

Pleasantly Surprised

As a security contractor in Iraq, I needed a new pair of Oakleys after my original ones were broken. After researching various sites on the internet, I found the best selection and price here. I placed my order and had them shipped to Iraq. My glasses arrived within a short time considering the distance and location. I'm sure I will order again from your site.
Thanks

Oakley Straight Jackets

I have to say Oakley makes a great set of glasses. I have 9 pair that have been bought everywhere from specialty stores to Heathrow airport and the price and service I got from BackcountryStore.com beats them all. In the future I will always check this site first when looking for any type of gear.

My favorite sunglasses

I love my Oakleys for these reasons: they fit my eyes and don’t let unfiltered light in, the straight arms don’t hurt my ears, they stay put on my face, the plastic hinges snap apart, so the frames don’t break when I mash them, and the Iridium coating makes my view sharp while keeping my sensitive eyes comfortable. The Iridium coating is well worth the extra cost. I also like that they are made entirely in the USA.
