I love my Oakley glasses!! I needed some replacement lens so ordered from Altrec. When I received them...there was a small scratch on one of the lens. Altrec returned them without any problem. I will reorder my lens from Altrec!! Thanks!

The best combination of tint and finish
This grey color is the best grade for sun protection without the over-darkening effect of the darker shades. Dark enough to be comfortable under a midday sun without being too dark for an overcast afternoon. I find the popular black iridium that I had before to be too dark in certain circumstances. It's also better not to have the expensive and easily-scratched iridium coating, while still having a polarized lens to enhance the blue sky and green vegetation, see the clouds more defined and eliminate the glare from water or glass (for example not having the dashboard reflected on the inside of the windshield while driving, or being able to see the turquoise color of the water with corals and fish through the ocean surface as opposed to just shining reflections of the sun). The larger XLJ type lens covers better the bottom outside corner of the field of view from asphalt, water or snow glare. Although not as delicate as the iridium coated lens, it still needs to be protected from scratches if you want it to last more than a year or two in good shape.

These replacement lenses are the perfect way to customize and make a unique pair of sunglasses. I bought these to replace my 8 year old black XLJ Half Jacket lenses, as well as the earsocks. I love the look of the fire lenses, as well as how simple they are to install. At this price, these are a no-brainer purchase.

XLJ Replacement Lens - Great!
I love the Oakley Flak Jacket Sunglasses. They are good for biking, running, boating and golfing. They don't slide on your nose, provide excellent coverage for field of vision and are lightweight. My sunglasses came with the Pol. Blk. Iridium which are optically great especially in bright conditions. I purchased the Persimmon replacement lens here for use on cloudy days or dusk rides. Changing them is easy. Highly recommend the sunglasses and getting a pair of replacement lens to make them more versatile. Make sure you get the XLJ version which provides more coverage.

Oakley Half Jacket Versatility
These lenses are great! I use them for trail running. Based on the light conditions in the woods, I use the clear or the persimmon lenses. The lenses are easy to change. The optical clarity provides for sure footing. I also appreciate the design to "keep the bugs out of my eyes" during evening runs.
