Cheer on the home team.
As the official sponsor of Team USA and the United States Olympic Committee for the Sochi Olympics, Oakley has unveiled a limited run of Team USA edition glasses, and you're looking at the Team USA Half Jacket 2.0 XL. The longevity of the Half Jacket XL is a testament to its nearly perfect blend of helmet compatibility, impeccable style, and unrivaled optics, and it's finished off with Team USA colors. So if you want to show your support for the home team in style, these will do the trick.
Like every Oakley design that leaves their Foothill Ranch factory, the Half Jacket 2.0 XL not only meets, but exceeds the rigorous standards set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Granted, the worst that most of us will ever see is the occasional tree branch, or fast-flying insect, but Oakley still designs their lenses to withstand impacts, keeping your eyes protected wherever you ride.
The Team USA Half Jacket 2.0 XL comes with Oakley's legendary polarized lens. 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, and it's proven to reduce eyestrain.
The Half Jacket 2.0 XL is constructed from a super-lightweight O-Matter polycarbonate frame. To keep you covered when you're deep in the drops, the Half Jacket 2.0 XL features a slightly larger, and more angular lens profile than that of its little brother, so if you have a smaller face or like a more low-profile lens fit, you'll probably prefer the standard Half Jacket 2.0.
The Oakley Team USA Half Jacket 2.0 XL is available in one size, and in the color Dark Grey/grey. A portion of the proceeds go to support the United States Olympic Committee.
