Sea Otter Tech: Oakley

Oakley plans to drop their new Fast Jacket "sports performance" glasses in May 2011. They come with two sets of lenses and retail for $220 with Iridium lenses, or $280 with photograde or polarized. Several frame/lens options will be offered.

Oakley makes all of their glasses from scratch in their California factory. The lenses start as raw polycarbonate, which Oakley turns into precision optics via injection molding. The frames are made in-house too.

All Oakleys meet stringent ANSI Z87.1 standard for "optical clarity and impact resistance" which is the same standard that safety glasses must meet.
