    1st review

    Wear these glasses on and off duty. They offer good protection. I have dark XLJ lenses for normal everyday wear and regular clear lenses for shooting at the range and night patrol if needed. Only problem I have had is sometimes when you get hot and sweaty they fog up with the XLJ lenses and get pretty wet with sweat because they come down and touch your upper cheek on the long side of each lense.

    Bought these sunglasses bout a year ago... Black Frames, Black Polarized Lenses... These glasses are really something to brag about... On and off duty you look professional with these things on. Great purchase, highly recommend for every law enforcement officer. I will however agree with rrussell1981 on the fact that the glasses will slip down and touch the top of your cheek.. The lenses are also prone to a lot of fingerprints seeings how there is no bottom frame... nonetheless, still an amazing product.

    Great product, excellent performance. Had mine for about 4 years now. I have the standard lenses (not XLJ) and haven't had any problems with fogging. If you're looking for great sunglasses, these are it!

    Great for in the sun w/ polarized lenses. Just as good at night with snap in clear RX lenses. I am on my second set of lenses in four years, so they hold up great for everyday wear. Must be rinsed often if around saltwater, though.

    Talk about being late for the parade !

    These are great sunglasses. My entire crew has them for Honor Guard use. We went to Polaroid lenses. This is the great thing: Normally when doing Honor Guard duties, you already know you gotta 'look ahead'. The eyeballs stay straight.

    Well, when we wear these babies outdoors, you can look a-l-l around and no one knows.

    Just a little secret that works for us.

    10-8..

    ps: If you can, buy them through a military source. We paid $75 a pair going through military/law enforcement channels.

    I have had these for the last 4 years. All I need to do is replace the lens's and I am good to go. I have the Polarized black ice lens's. The XLJ do fog up if it is cold out, but I can deal with that. I use my old M-Frames for at the range.

    Because my eyesight is poor I need to wear glasses everyday. I looked at Oakleys and was first turned off by the cost for prescription lenses. After trying them on I liked the way they felt. Once on your face the stay in place regardless of how much you sweat. My prescription remains consistant throughout the lense not just in the center as other lenses. Outstanding glasses, well worth the money!

    I love the durability and comfort of these babys. My buddy gave them to me and I wasn't sure what to think. They are fantastic! They are super light, and I can tell the difference between wearing these and cheapos. Looking through the lenses makes everything clear and sharp. You can get a crap ton of different colored lenses, as well as different sock colors. The lenses are really durable and well worth the $100

    Oakley's are built tough. I have had several pairs over the years and unfortunately they have been stolen or have met an untimely end. I had a pair of the wire framed half-wire and my nephew ran over them with afour wheeler. The lenses took it great but the frames didn't make it.
