Oakley Fishing Sunglasses Features

Frame Technology

O Matter™

Oakley's proprietary frame material is O Matter™. It is highly durable and flexible and found in just about every Oakley sport sunglass. This nylon material is used in all of the Oakley fishing sunglasses below.


Grip is extremely important in fishing sunglasses. Sunscreen and sweat increase the chance of your sunglasses sliding down your nose. This material gets stickier and tackier the more you sweat. Oakley's Unobtanium™ grip makes sure you don’t have to readjust your glasses throughout the day.

Lens Technology


Oakley PRIZM™ Deep Water Lens Graphic

PRIZM™ Lens Technology

Oakley engineers developed PRIZM™ Lens Technology, one of the best eyewear innovations on the market. It boosts contrast and color, offering vivid views that cut through harsh, unwanted light and glare. There are several different categories of PRIZM™ lenses for sports, everyday activities, and of course, fishing. PRIZM™ Shallow Water Polarized boosts green and copper hues, making fish easier to spot. The other Oakley fishing lens is PRIZM™ Deep Water Polarized. This lens filters out shades of blue, cutting through the reflection coming off the surface, allowing you to see into the water below. Check out our comparison of PRIZM Deep and Shallow Water to find the best lens for you.

If you want a pair of Oakley sunglasses that are great for fishing but also work well for your other activities and hobbies, try PRIZM™ Tungsten Polarized lenses. Bronze lenses are a good option for freshwater and fly fishing and are versatile, making them great for multiple activities.

Plutonite™ Lens Material

Oakley's proprietary lens material is a high-grade polycarbonate blend. Plutonite™ lenses block out 100% UVA, UVB, and UVC rays and blue light up to 400 nanometers, keeping your eyes fully protected from the sun.

Oakley Polarized Fishing Sunglasses

HD Polarized Lenses

Glare is annoying. But on the water, it's more than just an inconvenience. Oakley HD Polarized lenses reduce eye fatigue by blocking out 99% of reflective glare. They stand out from the crowd due to how they are manufactured. The lenses are made as a single pair to guarantee the axis of polarization is centered across both lenses. Other brands manufacture their lenses at different times, which throws off the axis of polarization and lets more glare pass through the lens.

Best Oakley Sunglasses for Fishing

Split Shot


Oakley Split Shot in Woodgrain with PRIZM™ Deep Water Polarized lenses

Shop Oakley Split Shot

The Split Shot has everything you need in a fishing sunglass. The wrap around design with extended side shields block out light to keep your eyes fully protected from the sun. The brow line of the frame is sloped down to avoid making contact with the brim of your hat, and the thin temple arms can also be comfortably tucked underneath it. It also comes with a 20" coated, woven steel leash, which can be easily detached/reattached. The full-saddle Unobtanium™ nose bridge gives you all the grip you need to keep these sunglasses from sliding down your nose.

Oakley Flak 2.0 XL


Oakley Flak 2.0 XL in Matte Black with PRIZM™ Deep Water Polarized lenses

Shop Oakley Flak 2.0 XL

One of Oakley’s most popular sport sunglasses, the Flak 2.0 XL is a great choice for fishing. The 'XL' in Flak 2.0 XL refers to extended lens height for maximum coverage and protection. The bottom of the lenses are curved slightly upward to fit around your cheekbones. Oakley's proprietary frame material, O Matter™, makes this sunglass pliable enough to meet any of your fishing needs.

Learn more in our Flak 2.0 XL review.

Oakley Clifden


Oakley Clifden in Matte Translucent Blue with PRIZM™ Deep Water Polarized lenses

Shop Oakley Clifden

The Clifden stands out from this list of Oakley fishing eyewear with its unique aesthetic. But the interesting look of this frame isn't just for show. Anyone who spends ample time around the water understands what it's like battling with glare. Whether you're reeling in golden trout on a lake or trawling for yellow tail in the ocean, the side shields of the Clifden combat that peripheral glare like nothing else. The side shields also keep water spray at bay.

Oakley Turbine


Oakley Turbine in Polished Black with PRIZM™ Deep Water Polarized lenses

Shop Oakley Turbine

The Turbine is yet another great fishing sunglass from Oakley. The full-frame design with maximum wrap offers plenty of coverage from the sun. Unlike the Fuel Cell and Gascan, the Turbine has tons of grip embedded into the frame, making it ideal in a water setting. Unobtanium™ grip on the temples and nose pads keep these sunglasses securely on your face no matter how you work up a sweat under the sun.

Check out our in-depth Turbine review.

Oakley Double Edge


Oakley Double Edge in Grey Smoke with PRIZM™ Sapphire Iridium lenses

Shop Oakley Double Edge

The Oakley Double Edge is a great choice for the larger heads out there. The tall and wide lenses give you tons of coverage so you don't miss a thing. If you break a sweat reeling in your catch, Unobtanium™ grip nose pads keep the Double Edge in place and on your face.
