The best sunglasses for active sports
My review refer to polarized version since I use only polarized lenses. Just perfect sunglasses. If you need sunglasses for sport just go and get one. In fact I owned 3 pair of those - I lost my first pair on GR5 trip in Europe - so I come back to US upset and immediately ordered another one - sigh, what you can do - but there are so great that I went ahead and ordered another pair for my wife as well. When slightly expensive but you get what you pay for: beautifully crafted and engineered piece of sunware from the company that stand for their products. If I will need another pair - I will not hesitate for a second.

Better coverage than non-XLJ version. But
I prefer the black frame and lense regular flak jackets appearance wise. I'm going to try the polarized Oakley bottlecap model not bottlecap XL version. The non-XL version bottlecap is almost identical to Flak Jacket but cheaper for polarized lenses. Plus, there's no rubber to ruin long term like the Flak Jackets.

Sunglasses for your active lifestyle...
I recently bought a pair of Oakley Flak Jacket XLJ sunglasses from Altrec. As always, Altrec had what I wanted in stock and shipped trouble free! I bought these Flak Jackets for my wife as she has become an avid runner and wanted a pair of sunglasses/eye protection for those long, sunny, windy days. We opted for the XLJ lenses as they are smaller and fit her small / Asian face a lot better. The larger lens would sit on her cheek which really bothered her, but these XLJ lens solves the problem. The Flak Jackets seem to have a little give as they dont feel like they are squeezing your head in. So if youre looking for some cool looking, active lifestyle sunglasses. The Oakley Flak Jacket XLJ is the way to go!

Flak Jacket XLJ a wise purchase
I wanted a pair of sunglasses that provided a lot of eye coverage. Many lenses are wrap types, but do not have much vertical width. The XLJ are what I needed. The optics are crystal clear. I find my eyes are relaxed and open, you don't have to squint. The XLJ is very restful to wear whether you are biking or driving. This is my first pair of Oakley eyewear, but I am so impressed that I now have my wife looking for a pair as well.
