Differences Between the Portal and Sutro

  • Coverage- The full shield lens of the Sutro will provide a bit more coverage than the Portal. However, it is not available in Rx. If you are a prescription wearer looking for a BIG frame with tons of coverage, the Portal is a safe bet.


  • Size- Both of these sunglasses favor individuals with larger heads. However, if you are into the oversize look then they will work just fine.


  • Unobtainium Grip- The nosepads and earsocks of the Portal are coated with Oakley's proprietary grip technology. The more you sweat, the more it sticks, keeping the frames in place and on your face. The Sutro features an Unobtainium saddle nosebridge but no additional grip on the temples.

Similarities Between the Portal and Sutro

  • O Matter- The frame is made of a highly durable nylon-based material know as O Matter. Simply put, these sunglasses will have no problem holding up to any physical activity.


  • PRIZM Lens Technology- See the world in enhanced contrast and vividness with PRIZM. Learn more about these game-changing lenses in our Oakley PRIZM Lens Guide. As an added bonus, Oakley lenses are also 100% UVA, UVB, and UVC protected.
