Oakley Flak 2.0 XL Review & Unboxing
Introducing the newest addition to the Flak Jacket Family: the Oakley Flak 2.0 XL.
The Oakley Flak Jacket XLJ has been a favorite among athletes and active enthusiasts for the better part of a decade. It’s 2015 and Oakley has taken innovation to the next level with the Oakley Flak 2.0 XL. (They kept the “Flak” and dropped the “Jacket.”)
The Flak 2.0 XL is essentially the new-and-improved 2015 version of the Flak Jacket XLJ. In other words, Oakley is delivering an upgraded version of one of the world’s already-best sports sunglasses. Check out our full Oakley 2.0 XL un boxing and review here:
Here’s a breakdown of the specs on the new Oakley Flak 2.0 XL:
The main difference between the Oakley Flak 2.0 XL and the original Oakley Flak Jacket XLJ is that the new Flak 2.0 XL has updated styling, is even more comfortable, and provides an improved field of vision with better peripheral vision and a little more wrap around coverage than before.
The Flak 2.0 XL is constructed with a combination of Oakley’s super durable O Matter material and laced with anti-slip Unobtainium. An O Matter frame is not only super lightweight, but extremely durable and difficult to break. Unobtanium nose pads and earsocks maintain a secure fit, as it is engineered to increase grip the hotter it gets and the more you sweat.
What’s more, the Flak 2.0 XL features Oakley’s Three-Point-Fit System, a frame design that comfortably hugs your skull to keep the sunglasses in-place and optically aligned. The temples go straight back (rather than hooking behind your ears), which is awesome for getting in and out of helmets.
As far as technical measurements go, The Flak 2.0 XL has a full, wrap around 8.75 base curve lens. Oakley measured the lenses as being 59mm across (also known as the “A measurement”), 38mm deep (the “B measurement”), and 63mm from corner to corner (the diagonal or “ED measurement”).
