Made with a special C-5 alloy that gives you plenty of flex without a lot of weight, these Whisker Sunglasses are not only among Oakley's lightest wire frame designs, they're also reasonably priced--especially if you compare them to the titanium wire designs. This model features neutral transmission gold iridium lenses, one of the darkest XYZ Optics lenses available from Oakley (at 12% visual light transmission, it's 3% off from Oakley's darkest plutonite wonders). Like the larger-frame Oakley sunglasses, the Whisker features Oakley metal icon logos along the hinges, but the detailing is so precise that you'll have to look close to spot the fine artistry.

Revel in its sheer awesomeness. Apr 01, 2012
If awesome were accurately defined in the dictionary (it is not), you'd see the Oakley Whisker Iridium Sunglasses as definition number one.
I'm a big fan of practical accessories and these sunglasses are definitely in top 10 list. I've been to a number of very sunny locations around the world and these glasses never fail to keep my eyes happy. Apart from being the epitome of awesomeness, the design really contributes to its functional role of protecting my eyes from the sun. And since it curves with contour of your face, you get very little light leakage - if any.
Practicality aside, these glasses look utterly awesome. Admit it, you know it's true. ;)
I do however have two complaints about these glasses (gasp!) which forced me to dock one star from my review:
1) When these glasses are on, they stay on. This is a good thing.. however it stays in place by having a really snug fit. if you're planning on wearing them for 5-6 hours at a time, be prepared to experience some discomfort right above your ears. It can be irritating at times, especially if you're on a long day hike or road trip. I believe the technical term for this is cranial pressure. For those unfamiliar with the terminology, it's the equivalent of a child waking up Christmas morning to a dead hamster in box as their present. Not fun. :(
2) The glasses only came with a a soft storage pouch. I was a little disappointed because I had spent quite a bit of money on these and expected some sort of hard case to protect my investment. These aren't some cheapo sunglasses found at your local drug store for $9.99. I had an additional case at home so I went ahead and used that.
These minor complaints caused me to dock one star from the overall product review. Don't get me wrong though. These glasses are still the epitome of functionality. In that arena they still get a 5/5. In terms of comfort though, I'd have to give Oakley a 4/5. Hopefully this matter will be considered when engineering the next generation of awesomeness.

5 Years and still going Mar 24, 2012
By G. Brown

I originally got these sunglasses as a prescription directly from oakley. They have been through several sets of prescription lenses over the past 5 years. I wore them for driving and cycling. I have a vast collection of non prescription sunglasses and these are by far my favorite. I am not as happy using these for cycling due to the small lens size, I personally like a larger lens when I cycle.
Just finished Lasik and have decided to replace the prescription lenses with a 3rd party polarized lens (eBay) rather than switch to another pair of glasses. I have not been kind to these and the frames are holding up well. I am buying a second pair just in case. I cant say enough about these glasses. Highly recommended.

Counterfeit Nov 27, 2012
I was just checking the sunglasses that I got here... I had to check it against a list of things that I found and I found that they were counterfeit. They are a good copy but they are not Oakley.They say "China" right on the temple of them. Oakley are ONLY made in the USA. I should have known they were to good to be true. The price was just too good. I will be returning them ASAP. Check when you order them. I don't blame Amazon since they were supplied by someone else but still...

My best pair ever Dec 24, 2011
By Ali Sh.
I love these glasses. They are very light so you barely feel them, and they stay on when you bend down to tie your shoes, etc.

Cheap Knock offs, Do not Buy!!! Jan 09, 2013
By Jeremy Kendle
After recieving these they looked very cheap for 150$ glasses, then after some research on how to spot fake Oakleys they failed every test. They infact have screws in the hinges, which Oakleys never does. They have made in china stamped on the inside of arms, all Oakleys are made in U.S.A. The paint on the O over ears rubbed off easily, fakes use a screen printing process that rubs off easy. The warranty card isn't even included, it has a cheap piece of paper with no contact information on it, not the plastic card included on real oakleys. Bottomline these look good for fakes, but you might aswell just buy 10$ walmart glasses and paint a o on the side.
