The Oakley Whisker sunglasses create a 5 o'clock shadow that protects your eyes from all UVA, B, and C rays, as well as blue light. Incredible construction gives this low-profile sunglass high performance. Built with Oakley's thinnest, most flexible wire C-5 frame, the Whisker floats effortlessly atop your head. Cushioned with Unobtanium earsocks the Whisker's fit is so comfortable it should be illegal. The wrapped, raked frame geometry and curved lenses provides improved peripheral vision. The Whisker meets ANSI impact requirements and AMSO optical requirements, further proving Oakley's commitment to producing high quality eyewear.

ok glasses - mine were flawed though

    Had problems with mine having smalls flaws in the frame. Backcountry is also a hassle to send things back

    Also they refused to price match to the price on steep and cheap but didn't respond in time (before the deal expired) for me to just order another pair and return the first

    Best glasses, hands down

      I'm an aviation mechanic, and these glasses are just awesome. Sadly, my pair has been through the ringer over the years (dropped on the ground, left in a tool bag, exposed to severe heat, exposed to chemicals while working, etc.) Had them for a long time, but they're still great. Only one little scuff ended up on them, but I can still see clear as day through them. Don't be fooled by their slender frame, these are hardy shades.

      Very nice!

        Gold-Iridium. What can I say...probably some of the best looking pairs of sunglasses around. Maybe the picture makes the lenses look a little brighter than they are. Just loved them. Some people might want to dish out the extra money and get the polarized ones. As for me, perfectly happy with those!
        Also, too bad they didn't come with a box but just a sleeve.


          I bought a polarized pair in 2008 and am still amazed by these sunglasses. The Whisker is manufactured incredibly well, and are surprisingly durable despite their slim frame. They seem to form-fit your face, so they will not slip off while playing sports. They are sleek enough to be worn with formal wear (i.e. to an outdoor wedding) but tough enough to wear while biking. Overall an excellent pair of sunglasses that look great and will last longer than today's fashion trends.Buy a polarized pair if you can.

          Solid, But Lenses Too Big...

            The construction is solid. But, I found the surface area of the lenses to be too big- thereby making the glasses not as sleek and narrow as they appear in the photos...

            This would be a perfect set of shades if the surface area of the lenses were more narrow & eliptical.

            The only shades with the sleek, narrow lens shape that I've found are some old Rolling Stone ones, but the construction on those were very poor. Fossil used to make some, but now they've only been making big, wide lens shades as of late also...

            Oh well... $150 down the drain.

            Whisker-gold iridium

              Great glasses, I've had a pair for the last 2/3 years. Buddy full out stepped on them and they survived pretty well. I had the repair the frames though... I use them for flying, and the lenses keep the sunlight at altitude to a reasonable level. The frames wrap around your head and stay tight enough for sports.

              Great Fit

                I love these sunglasses. This is my second pair actually. They are light, comfortable and the lens size is good for blocking out most of the sun when worn closely to the face. Although they are metal framed I use these more and more then my half jackets while playing sports.

                JUST PERFECT

                  This glasses are just so elegant and stylish, my wife thinks i look great with them, even though they look sort of thinny, they really are sturdy and heavy. A word apart for the site´s service, I opted for the free shipping option for my order and I have to say that i think i got more than if i would have payed for it, got my glasses shipped the next day of my order and got them 3 days later (kudos to USPS as well)

                  Ok sunglasses

                    I like the design, but when I got them they were damaged. From what I saw the lenses are nice, but their frames seem cheap as they were damaged.
                    The Oakley sunglasses line up are good, but not good enough for what you are paying for them. (Maybe if the Titanium sunglasses would be worth it depending on the percent of titanium used in the frame)
                    I would recommend them if you had the money to spend for them other wise not.

                    I LOVE these glasses

                      I used to have the Oakley A-wire thick, but I lost them and they are no longer sold, so I tried finding a similar style. I really like how the whiskers fit on my face as they cover my entire eye, giving me full protection from the sun. I was thinking of getting the half-wires at first, but they are too small and do not provide enough coverage. I definitely recommend these sunglasses.

                      Oakley Whisker gold iridium feedback

                        The Oakley Whisker sunglasses with the gold iridium tint are awesome. Their enhanced contrast is great and they are ideal for extremely bright conditions like in Southern California. Nice fit and in intense sunlight you can feel your eyes are relaxed. LOVE the enhanced contrast on these, didn't miss the polarizing. Go w/ the Gold Iridium!
