Flak Jacket®

Sport professionals demand nothing less than the best, and we’ve answered their challenge for decades. World-class athletes have driven us to create innovation after innovation, including interchangeable lens designs with unbeatable optical clarity. Flak Jacket® takes that to the next level with the latest in performance technology.

The clarity of High Definition Optics® was just our starting point. We created a Hydrophobic™ lens coating to repel water, skin oils and debris, so the best vision on earth stays crystal clear. When the sun fades or flares on athletes like freeride legend Wade Simmons, the interchangeable lens design lets them adapt. Two sizes of nose pads help them achieve a secure fit that optimizes comfort.

The Best Vision in Sports

Professional athletes cannot compromise on performance, so we engineered Flak Jacket® to offer the best of every technology.


Oakley Hydrophobic™ is a lens coating that prevents water from leaving streaks and sheens, which can compromise vision. Whether it’s rain, sweat or splashing runoff, H2O can’t get a foothold. And that’s just half the story.

Skin oils, fingerprints and lotions are easily wiped away without leaving a residue, eliminating the haze that makes ordinary lenses a nightmare to keep clean. We even made the coating anti-static so it won’t attract dust and dirt like ordinary lenses.

High Definition Optics® (HDO®)

High Definition Optics® (HDO®) take advantage of patented innovations, like XYZ Optics® for unbeatable clarity at all angles of vision — even at the sides of lens contours that open peripheral view and optimize protection against sun, wind and side impact. HDO® lenses surpass ANSI Z87.1 standards for clarity, refraction and prism.

Interchangeable Lenses

This gives athletes the best performance possible in any sport environment, and even lets them keep up with changing light. We created a full spectrum of lens options that help them optimize their vision.

Lens Shape Options

Two different lens shapes let you choose the amount of lens coverage, and the semi-rimless design ensures there’s no frame rim to block downward view.


Performance Lens Colors


Our high-contrast colors optimize depth perception, and our neutral transmission colors offer truer color perception. Choose Iridium® lens coatings to reduce glare and get the best vision in bright sun. For the ultimate in glare-cutting performance, get lenses with Oakley polarization. We make them with a process that eliminates the haze and distortion found in ordinary polarized lenses.

The Perfect Fit

We designed Flak Jacket® with interchangeable nose pads, so you can pick the size that gives you a comfortable and precise fit. Two sizes come with every frame. You also get the best frame technologies in sports.

Stays in Place


To make sure the frame stays secure during sport competition, the nosepiece and stem sleeves are made of Oakley Unobtainium®. It’s a proprietary synthetic that actually increases grip with perspiration.


We engineered Flak Jacket® to be so lightweight, you’ll forget you have it on. Unlike ordinary frames that hook the ears, Flak Jacket® offers the comfort of a Three-Point Fit with balanced pressure points.


Our O Matter® frame material is engineered to withstand the abuse of athletics. It’s one of the reasons why Flack jacket® meets ANSI Z87.1 standards for high-mass and high-velocity impact protection.


  • Adapt to any sport environment with interchangeable lenses in three optional shapes and a spectrum of colors
