Half Jacket 2.0 XL Polarized Sunglasses
For some of us, the Oakley Bottlecap, or the groundbreaking (for its dual lens interchangeability) Half Jacket was our very first pair of sports sunglasses. That was over ten years ago, and both styles can still be readily found in the retail sector — this speaks a great deal to the universal fit and radical design. In regard to the Half Jacket, it excelled in fit and durability, but lacked somewhat in timelessness. This is why Oakley has seen fit to update the design with the Half Jacket 2.0 XL Polarized, while still presenting the same core fit and interchangeable lens functionality that made the original such a classic. From a design standpoint, most immediately apparent is how the 2.0 mixes the outwardly curved and slightly wider fit profile of the Half Jacket, with the more confident hinges and sculpted earstems of the recent Fast Jacket.

Why Buy Again?
Because I love this design! Great fit and comfort! But keep in mind... they do not float. I should have known better not to use a floating keeper whilst SUPing... arghhh!

I love Oakleys. This is my 4th pair. These are nice sunglasses, but I ordered the wrong ones, because apparently I can't read. So I will be returning them. And ordering the pair of Oakley I meant to order.
Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 XL
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
There is a reason Oakley has been making the half jacket this long. It works well and get the job done. I've like the small updates to the line. The frame feels lighter.
