The Oakley Field Jacket: First Look Review
Mountain biking isn’t easy. The last thing you should have to worry about is your glasses. Fogging, view obstruction, fit, and grip are common complaints that field researchers took into account when developing the Oakley Field Jacket. This multi-purpose frame solves those issues through new technology and modifications of tried and true frames.
Originally, the Jawbone from Oakley was the go-to glasses for all things riding. Over time researchers discovered three core flaws in the pair. First being the impaired field of view. The brow line forced people to move their entire head upwards in order to see out of the lens. Oakley has counteracted this with one of their highest raised brow lines of any model. And if you’re wondering, it IS available in prescription!
Another common issue was fogging. Obviously mountain biking takes a physical toll on your body and sweating is expected. With the new Advancer, all you have to do is press the button in the center of the glasses and it pulls the frame directly forward by 7mm. This acts as an entryway for air circulation to prevent fogging without losing the optical center of the lens.
Lastly, it was understood that with two bulky stems there would be clear fit issues with the helmet and the back of your head. The Field Jacket comes with an extra pair of smaller interchangeable stems that can be easily swapped out for ultimate helmet compatibility.
PRIZM Lens Technology
Having a competitive edge with frame design goes hand-in-hand with lens technology. Oakley PRIZM lenses are sport-specific lenses designed to boost contrast and provide optimal clarity to enhance performance. For example, PRIZM Trail lenses are built for the conditions you will encounter on the trail. Being able to spot a rut or rock ahead of time can mean the difference between landing or slamming. With PRIZM lenses designed for just about any sport or activity under the sun, you will have a visually pleasing experience doing what you love!
