Sorry for my ignorance but what are iridium lenses and its benefits?

The Middle Way. It is clear that the two phenomena are mutually exclusive and can be used in combination for the best protection against harmful light rays. In fact, most of Oakley’s polarized lenses include the iridium coating that helps in reducing glare and enhancing vision.
gone...
Damn sold out
I think these are made in China. Only limited models are still made in USA. The ones made in USA still have `Oakley` stamped on the bridge, whereas, If I am not mistaken, and I'm sorry if I am mistaken, but those made in China do not have `Oakley` stamped on the bridge.
From their site

"Timeless sleek design made even more lightweight with sculptural reliefs on the earstems, Sliver™ takes advantage of our durable yet gravity-defying O Matter™ frame material while letting innovative technologies like XYZ Optics® throw their weight around."

Seriously, W.T.F.F?
Looks like a clearance stock from Oakley ! They would never give new stock to Sports direct. Still good price though

It's marketing spiel like this that helps them sell to the gullible masses
Been on a look out for Oakley for awhile. Thanks for sharing

You’re mistaken. About the bridge thing anyway
Yup, richt is mistaken.

Also sure Oakley use plenty of marketing terms, but they make some of the best shades out there.

Great customer service too.

These aren't PRIZM lenses though - PRIZM are fanstastic and live up the hype. Until Oakley came out with PRIZM they were perhaps losing some of their position - but it puts them top again for optics for the price.
And yes, most are made in China now - and perhaps assembled in the USA etc. But that's the case with most things.

Plenty of premium products that are well made are made in China - e.g. Apple products, most laptops and electronics really.

My nice Makita drills (they make them elsewhere too - including Japan - my preference - but mine are made in China), the list goes on.

PRIZM lens is amazing, best driving shades ever!

How am i mistaken? Do you know which Oakley glasses are still made in the USA as I want some more?
It's that part.

I just bought some Flak 2.0

They have Oakley on the bridge, and actually state "USA Assembled" on inside of the bridge.

My Turbine's (I got because of a deal posting on here, for very cheap), don't have Oakley on the bridge, and no assembled statement either - but the box did have Assembled in the USA on there.

Oakley on the bridge is just typically reserved for Sports models - it's no indicator of USA manufacture.

Check out oakleyforum.com if you want more info, but just assume it's all made in China now and assembled in the USA or elsewhere.

A key exception is the shortlived LX range which were made in Italy in Luxottica's factory.
But that's because they were shaped acetate sunglasses, rather than injection molded O-Matter.

I thought that the lenses were still made in the USA, but perhaps that's not the case now.
So my thought was that the lenses were made in the USA, the plastic parts in China, and then the shades put together and boxed in the USA to be shipped. But not sure.

The assembly and boxing in the US should still be the case.

Previous non X-Metal metal glasses were typically made in Asia, and now China.
I think some members on oakleyforum.com actually stated quality improved for the models that were previously made in various factories across Asia, but now more exclusively China (consolidated/better manufacturing contracts)
LOL people comparing Oakley's to cheap £5 Tesco specials! Obviously never ever tried Oakley's on before then?
what is size N indicated ?
small /medium/ large face fit ?
Not a deal as such but have a old pair of Oakley Gascans which broke emailed Oakley service department to see about getting them fixed. Email sent back to say they no longer do this range and gave me 30% discount to use on a next purchase.

They are incredible driving shades, best I've ever had, they take all the sting out of sunlight but make everything look very sharp.... difficult to explain but they really are worth the extra cash.

I drove 1000 miles in France last summer hols and they were an absolute joy to wear
Good price so hot but in my opinion your gonna break em, scratch em or lose em so just buy ebay china cheapies.

In your opinion? You mean that's what you'd likely do. Other people are probably more careful and this doesn't apply, making your point moot. Bit bizarre to suggest other people are as careless as you so shouldn't get nice stuff.

The same would apply to watches, clothes etc.

Getting cheap chinese shades off eBay sounds like a bad idea if you care about your eyes and eyesight.

I'd at least get some CE marked sunglasses form a respectable retailer. E.g. from Boots for £10

I am sure I'm not the only one that is abit careless with sunglasses, a watch is different as it is securely attached to your arm. These are probs made in China, and most of the ebay cheapies are UV400 or whatever other standard, and I believe them as it's not hard to do and they make branded glasses anyway.

I have had £80 raybans, but they are no better than Chinese copies. Had some Official Mercedes ones that were only £20 on offer, they had a nice lens, but I am sure with abit of searching and afew different purchases I could find Chinese ones just as good.

20 years ago maybe Chinese stuff was rubbish, but now they make smartphones and tyres that are just as good or nearly as good as the big established brands. And its all a fraction of the price due to cheap labour (which is harsh and wrong, but everyone is involved in it, primark to apple) and massive economies of scale.
Buying a Chinese no name brand off eBay vs a very good brand made in China is completely different.

See my earlier post.

These likely are made in China. But customer service is great, PRIZM lenses are unrivalled at least for the price, and there's a massive quality difference.

People seem to forget about design and customer service, and that even the same factory or manufacturer can produce varying grades of goods for different brands.

I got some PRIZM Oakley's thanks to a post on this site and they're fantastic and much better than the cheaper sunglasses I got before (with not much price difference really - £20 or £30 from TK Maxx vs £45 or £55 from sunglasses shop)

Normally if you get something nice you take better care of it. I'm certainly far more careful with my Oakleys than my old sunglasses. I worry about them sometimes, but I don't mind. It's nice to have something you value.

Anyone point me in the direction of a decent pair with Prizm glasses (decently priced) - really after a pair for Driving and everyday usage (not any particular sport)
