Oakley sunglasses for cycling

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I originally had Oakley XX (twenties), loved them both on and off the bike, fit well, never slid down my face, optics were sharp, but lost them. Had them for about 4 years.

Just bought some Oakley Flak Jacket XLJ's and love them even more than the XX's. They fit just awesome. I forget I'm wearing them sometimes the optics and fit is just spectacular. I tried the Radar Path's and loved them but I wanted something I could wear off the bike as well without looking like a tool.

I just got a new pair from walmart. Kinda pissed though cause they were 9.88, but they must have been rollin **** back cause they were only 7 bucks when they rang them up. They work great and match my 19 dollar jersey from performance.

Nice my friend got the same hookup for me from his racing team. I would go with the half jackets or flat jackets. I personally ride the half jackets but some people dont like them cause the arms angels can cause problems with helmet fit. Flat jackets solve that. Plus the M frames just dont look good on me.
