    The Oakley Flak Jacket is a favorite among MLB players and umpires. The lightweight, durable frame and two nosepiece options make this a comfortable pair of sunglasses even for the longer games or double headers. With optimized peripheral vision, semi-rimless design, anti-smudge and glare reduction coating, you'll have great views of every call.

    The Flak Jacket has UV protection to protect your eyes from harmful rays and impact resistance to protect your eyewear investment from high-velocity blows. A soft vault case is included with slots for extra lenses.


    • Durability and all-day comfort of lightweight, stress-resistant O Matter® frame material
    • Optimized peripheral vision and side protection of 8.75 base lens curvature
    • Comes standard with Oakley Hydrophobic/Oleophobic anti-smudge lens coating on all lens options prevents rain and sweat from building up on the lens. It also repels skin oils and other contaminates, so the lens is smudge resistant and easy to keep clean. It even eliminates static electricity, so dirt and dust particles won’t cling.
    • Stem sleeves are made of UNOBTAINIUM® to increase grip with perspiration.
    • Comfort and performance of Three-Point Fit that holds lenses in precise optical alignment
    • Metal icon accents
    • Optical precision and performance that meets all ANSI Z87.1 standards
    • Impact resistance that meets all ANSI Z87.1 standards for high-mass and high-velocity impact
    • UV protection of Plutonite® lens that filters out 100% of UVA / UVB / UVC & harmful blue light up to 400 nm
    • Glare reduction and tuned light transmission of Iridium® lens coating
    • Multiple interchangeable Unobtainium® nose pad options for customizable and comfortable secure fit
    • Protective sports-specific Oakley Soft Vault included with capacity for extra lenses

    My wife bought me the Oakley Flack Jacket XLJ with the photochromic lenses for my birthday a few years ago.

    These are by far my favorite sunglasses ever!

    Typical for Oakley the design is modern, stylish and comfortable. The arms are comfortably snug and hold them in place even running, jumping or other times of high activity. 

    There are dozens of lens options and I specifically wanted "transition" type lenses that Oakley calls photochromic. In bright light these darken to a moderate darkness level, and in lower light levels they lighten to an orange/amber color. I love this as a baseball umpire. For those late afternoon games that start in full sun light the dark is great, but as the sun sets and the lights come on the amber is perfect and even enhances your ability to see in those low light/ twilight times very well.
