The XL edition of the Oakley Flak 2.0 sunglasses offers a standard size frame with enhanced lens coverage, and every millimeter of the peripheral view is optimized with High Definition Optics in a durable yet lightweight design that takes performance to the next level and brings style along for the ride. Essential gear for competition, the Oakley Flak 2.0 XL Sunglasses have a 8.75 base lens curvature for protection against sun, wind and impact, and patented XYZ Optics maintains clarity along the full curve while you push your limits with the comfort and secure grip of Unobtainium . Oakley created an array of lens/frame combinations so you can choose options including the glare-cutting power of Polarized optics, the balanced light transmission of Iridium lens coatings, and Prizm lens technology that fine-tunes vision by emphasizing colors where the eye is most sensitive to detail. Oakley was created for world-class athletes, those who see the limits of possibility as just another challenge. Their dedication drives the brand to look beyond the conventional ideas of industry standards. It's in Oakley's DNA to identify problems, create inventions, and wrap those inventions in art. And simply to make things better than anyone thought possible. D

The first bad sign was the dilapidated manufacturer’s box for a completely different model of Oakley sunglasses. I ordered the Flak 2.0 XL, but what I got was what looked like a replica that came off the rack at an AM/PM gas station with HAND PAINTED logos on the temples, housed in a crushed box that was labeled for Oakley Flak Draft sunglasses. I was in absolute shock, disbelief that someone actually took the time to put this monstrosity, this abomination together.
It gets better. The description for this unit read “Item shows minimal signs of wear, consistent with being tried on but not used”. The inspector was either drunk, or high, or both because these sunglasses were absolutely filthy. There was fine dirt embedded throughout the ear socks, nose piece, and on the top half of the lenses where they mount to the frame. There was also a film of dried sweat, or hair product, or both, all over the entire frame which acted like glue within the ear socks, making them nearly impossible to remove for inspection or cleaning - what if I wanted to swap the ear socks for a different color?
After inspecting the unit thoroughly, I concluded that the only genuine Oakley pieces in this package was the box that was for a different model, the portable storage vault, the ear socks, and MAYBE the lenses. I wasn’t willing to accept a three figure loss for $12 ear socks and a $20 storage case, so this order went straight back.
If this was a genuine pair of Oakley sunglasses, they will not be added to my collection. These sunglasses were undoubtedly very comfortable, but felt cheap and fragile with poorly painted logos on the temples. I suggest giving them a try and judging them for yourself. Personally, I didn’t like how close they sat on my face. They fogged up right away because they didn’t breathe well at all and it’s been around 110°F all week “here”. If they had better ventilation and the logos at the temples didn’t look like they were hand painted (with cheap nail polish by a 5 year old), I would have considered keeping them.
Overall, the Flak 2.0 XL have a great design concept that’s offered in several colors to suit any occasion. I’d leave a more thorough review, but I got poor replicas...
I'm not thrilled with the Oakley Black Prizm Daily Polarized Iridium lenses and really liked the old-style Black Polarized (non-Prizm) lenses better. Oakley states that with Prizm Daily Polarized, dull colors become warm and rich for sharper contrast and a more pleasing, relaxing visual experience. However, I find that colors become too muted and too dull. Uses for this lens are: Everyday, Running and Driving.
Colors looked more natural with the older Black Iridium Polarized lens. Oakley constantly reinvents itself; sometimes for the worse. I do love the other Prizm colors like Jade. However, the lens color does not change my review. You can always substitute your lenses later as the frame allows you to remove and add lenses with ease. These glasses are five-star quality - especially with the case included and at the current price of under $130.

Reason for 4 stars is a personal preference. The Black Iridium lenses that came with these Flak 2.0 XLs are not as dark as my previous sunnies (RayBans). They're fine in the UK but I found myself squinting a little on the brightest days abroad. There are lots of lens options including polaroids but replacement lenses are expensive. So my advice would be to try before you buy.
Especially at this price, I doubt you'll find anything better. Come with a good hard case too.
Only 2 small issues with them leading to 4/5 score:
1. the rubber on the temples is so grippy it's almost irritating to the skin
2. they can fog up pretty easily in the morning if you don't have the a/c on in the car.
Outside, the UV component of the sunlight will darken the lenses progressively.
so the lenses will adapt to the circumstances imperceptibly. Ideal for driving. Perfect fit.
