Oakley used lightweight and durable C-5 alloy to put a new twist on originality with distinctive stem architecture, and laser etching let us create a faux lens rim line that’s both minimalist and modern while spring hinges and air-filled silicone nose pads keep comfort dialed in. You’ll have a classic look that’s smooth with style, along with the secure grip of Unobtainium earsocks in a Three-Point Fit that keeps the optics in precise alignment. Our pure Plutonite lenses filter out all UV while High Definition Optics maintains clarity at all angles of view. Lead color frames with Black Iridium lenses. Non-Polarized.

WHY WE DON'T SELL POLARIZED SUNGLASSES
Many sunglasses today are polarized, meaning they use an optical filter to reduce glare. While this is fine for fishing or driving, it's a bad idea for pilots. That's because many cockpit instruments and glass panels have polarized faces, and polarized sunglasses will render these unreadable. In addition, the iPad screen will be blacked out in portrait orientation when wearing polarized sunglasses. Sporty's sells a wide variety of high quality sunglasses that do an excellent job of reducing glare--but without polarization.
