Adapt and conquer with Oakley Switchlock™ Technology for fast and easy lens changing so you can optimize your vision for the environment. Racing Jacket® takes all the clarity, convenience and comfort of Oakley Jawbone and cranks up style with icons you can change whenever the mood strikes you. And when G-forces strike you, the retaining strap makes sure the frame stays put. Two sets of lenses are included (one for bright light and one for low light), and you’ll have High Definition Optics® (HDO®) to go along with the performance comfort and protection of ultra-premium sport eyewear.
This is eyewear that craves the chaos of action sports, especially with protection that meets ANSI Z87.1 standards for high velocity and high mass impact. You can switch to a new lens set quickly, and while the lenses are securely mounted, there are no uneven pressures to distort the optics and mess with your view of the world. All lenses feature HDO® clarity with patented innovations like XYZ Optics® to keep vision sharp, all the way to the periphery. Optical performance exceeds ANSI Z87.1 standards, and with 8.75 base lens curvature, it’s a wide-open view with superior side protection. The frame is crafted from a lightweight, stress-resistant material called O Matter® Our Three-Point Fit maximizes comfort while holding the lenses in precise optical alignment, and Unobtainium® components increase grip when you sweat.
You’ll want to gear up by adding optional lens sets, and we engineered a full collection for Racing Jacket®. Take advantage of the glare-cutting performance of Oakley HDPolarized lenses. Choose lenses with Iridium® coating for precisely balanced light transmission. Get Oakley Photochromic lenses that adapt to changing light by darkening automatically. You can even get Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses with a wide range of options.

Comments about Oakley Racing Jacket Sunglasses:
A number of the guys and gals in my cycling group have the Oakley Racing Jackets, formerly known as the Jawbone. I was torn between these and the Radar Path glasses, I decided on the Racing Jackets, and here's why:
The Racing Jackets have a lower lip that extends below the bottom frame and provides a little more eye protection. I've taken a small rock to the face on more than one ride and know how easily a rock can fly up under a lens. The Radars don't have a lower lip and leaves some room for a rock to potentially sneak through and hit your eye.
It was a tough decision too because the Radar Path glasses give you a little more visibility by not having the lower lip.
Oakley uses a patented lens material they call Plutonite which is extremely durable and still blocks the UV Rays. After looking at the Oakley website, I learned that their Plutonite also provides exceptional visibility, which is important when going downhill at speeds over 50mph!
I sweat a lot and it's nice to quickly change my lenses at the group rendezvous point without hassle. The Racing Jackets make changing my lenses easy enough to swap in less than 2 minutes.
I wanted a good pair of glasses that I could count on for eye protection, great visibility, and general good looks and the Racing Jackets fit the bill.
