There’s nothing worse than foggy sunglasses. Vented lens, anti-fog coating, whatever. If you are like me and happen to sweat a ton on rides then you know how I feel. Terrible. Annoying. And perhaps even a few other choice words.
Oakley’s newest additions, the Flight Jacket and the Field Jacket, have these interesting little levers on their nose pieces dubbed the Advancer. It’s a one-hand operable switch which allows users to pivot the sunglasses away from the face and open air vents at the rubberized nosepiece. Ram air, baby.
The Flight Jacket features an angular silhouette with a brow-less, solo lens design that’s been the rage as of late. In comparison, the Field Jacket has a more traditional twin-lens design compatible with prescription lens.
The Flight Jacket is available now from $203-$253 depending on choice of lens and the Field Jacket with photochromic lens retails for $243, with full pricing to be announced.
