If you're screaming down singletrack or paddling class IV whitewater, you need to see exactly what you're doing. Rely on the full-coverage of the Oakley Radar Range Sunglasses to provide you with precise, crisp vision. The Radar Range Sunglasses offer a permanent hydrophobic lens coating that repels water, smudges, and debris so you can perform to your highest level. The Oakley Radar frame stays on your head as you move thanks to Unobtanium earpieces and nose pads that stay grippy when you perspire.

i bought the radar ranges after checking out smiths, julbos and rudy project offerings.
in terms of optics, oakleys just seem really crisp and clear with zero distortion or haze like so many glasses seem to have. the range is the largest lens that is available on the radar frame, which is good for me since i like max coverage. i use these for trail running and mtb/cycling. they are really light and don't slip down my nose regardless of how sweaty i get. at this point i have just the gray lens, but will probably get the clear lens as well for night trail running.
while i think this is a quality product, i think they are just too expensive so i can't give them five stars. i mean 150 bucks for plastic glasses and $60 for a clear second lens? come on.
I know people love to hate Oakley because their so trendy and all that. But I sweat a lot, and hate the impaired vision when it drips on my sunglasses. Problem solved with the Radar. Yeah you can get Natives, or Smiths that come with other lenses. I know too many people that have to pay $30 or more for them to honor their warranties. I've had Oakley's since the Razorblade and never had a quality issue. I live in Kodiak and live outdoors: kayak, mountain bike, hike, run, ski, hunt, fish. Maybe the biggest reason I stay with Oakley is that after almost 20 years, I know exactly what to expect from their lenses.
Got these to replace my half jackets. LOVE the lens coverage and the secure wraparound; the VR28 black iridium lens that came with mine are perfect for trail and road use. The major selling point for me was the hydrophobic lens, which works really well - it keeps the sweat and mud buildup to a minimum. The only time I've ever had a problem is with a little fogging on really cold rides when I'm wearing a face mask, but that's true with any glasses. I'm looking forward to using these for years.
Love, Love, Love these glasses. I cycle in the summer and ski in the winter in Summit County, Colorado and these glasses can be used for both since they stay on your face well. My face is medium in size and since the lenses provide good coverage, I think it would also fit a large face. I would get another pair if I ever lost these. BTW...Backcountry rocks for all your outdoor gear. The customer service is top notch.
I bought these sunglasses to use primarily when mountain biking. I was most concerned about good fit and protection. These sunglasses offer both! The lens is large and offers great protection from wind and debris. The fit is good and comfortable. I have had no problems with slipping or fogging. They come with a medium dark lens that is suitable for a variety of light conditions. I would definitely recommend them to a friend.
This is the best pair of Oakleys I've owned. These are the best, they are great for cycling. Durable, not to dark, not to light, I can wear them before sunrise, which is nice in Arizona, because they are a must when the sun is up. Nice and lightweight and comfortable. I can't recommend them enough.
Awesome sunglasses! Very durable and excellent wind protection. Fits well in a motorcycle helmet. The finish on the frame has started to wear as has the rubber cover on the arms (after 2 years). Would purchase another pair.
Very similar to the traditional M-frame except these lay flatter against your temple. This is actually handier than it sounds... the fit more comfortably under headgear, especially helmet straps.
I have a very narrow face, the Radar Range fits perfectly and stays in place while running down single track trails.

Good pair of shades. They feel pretty durable but in my case a little to big. It would be nice if the interchangeable's were included.
