Ive always been a fan of Oakley sunglasses. When my dog got a hold of my last pair of straight jackets, and Oakley wouldn't sell me some temples (not great customer service) i saw the blood framed, VR28 black iridium lens straight jackets pop up on SAC. I picked them up and couldn't be happier again. The frame is a very deep red and the lens has a slight rose tint to it. It turns everything slightly more red (because the lens blocks blue light) which takes some getting used to but i do feel like the do help with definition. The fit is great for my big head and face.
These are nice Shades, i have the ducati ones. the lenses are great quality the frame is stout, however i think they will have issues with the hinges over the life of the glasses they are plastic and part of the frame, this is a weak point in my mind i am glad i got them and the fit is nice and they look great. they are not as nice as the kaenon Rhinos that i had but they are worthy of wear
I love my Oakleys for these reasons: they fit my eyes and dont let unfiltered light in, the straight arms dont hurt my ears, they stay put on my face, the plastic hinges snap apart, so the frames dont break when I mash them, and the Iridium coating makes my view sharp while keeping my sensitive eyes comfortable. The Iridium coating is well worth the extra cost. I also like that they are made entirely in the USA.
As a security contractor in Iraq, I needed a new pair of Oakleys after my original ones were broken. After researching various sites on the internet, I found the best selection and price here. I placed my order and had them shipped to Iraq. My glasses arrived within a short time considering the distance and location. I'm sure I will order again from your site.
I have to say Oakley makes a great set of glasses. I have 9 pair that have been bought everywhere from specialty stores to Heathrow airport and the price and service I got from BackcountryStore.com beats them all. In the future I will always check this site first when looking for any type of gear.
The color that I purchased was "Stealth." I anticipated the frames to be a subdued color (dark gray) as pictured, but there is a sparkling/glitter effect in the sunlight. No biggie. I am happy with the overall look, feel, and fit. With Oakley you can't go wrong.
great deal on a great pair of sunglasses... purchased them for my wife; a nice surprise since she had just recently broken her previous pair of O's... i will return to the site for more great gear in the future....
When I opened them, I thought it wasn't what I ordered. Then I put them on, so light, so comfy, and they look great. I have a small face, and still like them. Great buy!
