- Q & A
Not quite aviators
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
I purchased these as driving/casual use sunglasses. I wanted glasses that would give me crisp vision but would also fit a pocket better than all my curved-frame performance sunglasses.
Oakleys are known for their lenses; in fact my Flak Jackets are my favorite performance glasses. The lenses on the Crosshairs are great as well - crisp vision with minimal artifacts or blurring. They're described as fitting medium faces, and I think that feels true. The Crosshairs fit my rather narrow face well - not overly large or wide. Where these fail for me is the "pocket test". The curved frame is not that much better than my performance glasses at tucking away when I'm not wearing them. Reasonably nice glasses, but don't fit the requirements for which I purchased them. They're going back.
Oakley metal frames are awesome

I bought the chrome/vr28 version. Best driving glasses I have ever used. That seems to be what they are primarily made for. They wear a lot heavier on the nose than acetate frames, but the amount of style that comes with them is definitely worth it. They give good side and bottom eye protection not usually seen with metal frames due to the curvature of the lenses. Probably not the best all around sunglasses, but they should be in your collection.
