Oakley Fast Jacket

Polarized lenses

Lenses for my rainy days ride

Well, I received my Christmas present early from Oakley this year, the Oakley Fast Jacket. And my first impressions?
You know it's been raining a lot in Singapore the past few days but I've been riding still and here are my first thoughts on the Fast Jackets.

The Fast Jacket has the same SwitchLock lens change system which was first used in the Jawbone & Split Jacket so changing lenses are a changing lenses are a breeze.

One observation is that if you tend go down on your drops (or aerobars) on your bike, the Fast Jacket's frame (on top) tends to reduce your line of sight a little. It also feels slightly heavier than my current favourite model which is of course the Jawbone.

What is good is that the Fast Jacket does not have a rim at the lenses's lower border which means your lower field of vision is unobstructed and the peripheral vision is great (and extremely useful when you turn around to check traffic while riding).

Ride safe, y'all.
