Sleek. :yesway:

What's so different about polarized lenses? And they don't do those with prescription lenses, do they? I've been looking for a set...

EDIT - "Available with Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses." Why so they do. :D

They're anti-glare. They don't make things darker, so much as they make everything clearer. It's kinda cool, I can see the polarization in the rear window of my car, and since my car stereo's illumination is Amber, it dims it a bit. The former is cool, the latter will take some getting used to.

But they're tinted too, right? For most of the shit I'd wear them for, those look ideal.

Have you taken a spin on your bike with them on? how are they for wind protection on your eyes?

I use a pair of much thicker framed Oakleys on my motorcycle, because they touch the area around my eyes to block the wind. These are more day to day/driving classes.

Tilt your head like an owl while looking at polarized light sources (LCDs, etc.) You'll lose your freakin' mind, man. :metal:

They're great on the water and are fantastic for driving, especially in winter when you get a lot of glare from snowy or wet roads.

I've had 5-6 pairs of oakleys since the early 90's, I refuse to use anything else.
They're great! You don't have to take them off when you enter a tunnel and they're great during snowy conditions aswell.

The pair of Oakleys that these are replacing are ones that I bought myself with the bonus I got from working the Y2K bug at an old IT job.

You get what you pay for, and Oakleys are the goods. :yesway:

I just wish my eyes weren't as shitty as they are... You can't get wraparound sunglasses when you're seriously near-sighted. :(

I'd love a pair of Rx polarized Gascans. :(
