This is about as hi-def as polycarbonate gets, man. Visual champagne. The polarized lens—reddish brown but called VR28 Black Iridium—accentuates depth and contrast, makes colors jump out and throb, and provides wonderful acuity.

But it almost seems wrong to get all sweaty in eyewear so bold yet elegant, like mixing a batch of Gatorade in a Ming vase. Or not. oakley.com
