Oakley Jawbreaker Sunglasses are just a bit tasty! Customer review.
I recently purchased some Oakley Jawbreakers from Tallington Lakes Pro Shop. They are an out and out sports eyewear piece. There’s no way they could ever look good as fashion eyewear, so don’t even think about buying them as a cross over. Don’t be that guy!
Oakley Jawbreaker Sunglasses
The styling is pretty funky and gives really nice shelf appeal. A great range of colours that will leave you torn with the right decision. (I spent a fair amount of time in Tallington Lakes Pro Shop annoying the team, switching glasses in the mirror). The style in no way compromises the function, that’s important. They’ve managed to create a cool looking eyepiece centred on a really solid performance criteria.
I usually race the bike section of a triathlon wearing a helmet with built-in visor. I never tend to bother with glasses any other time as I “know I am wearing them”! That’s my issue, anything that I’m consciously wearing annoys me. I bought the glasses reluctantly as I was undertaking a desert run, no glasses would be suicidally crazy! I thought I’d give them a whirl on my long Sunday bike ride. They felt like I was wearing the visor, because I had massive field of vision, Oakley’s standard and incredible visual clarity, comfortable and ergonomically designed. The adjustable arms did nothing for me in the shop, I felt it was just something to break and a potential weakness in the design. Actually they were immediately useful. I had them on the smallest setting when running. They fit perfectly, When I went out on the ride I had them on their maximum limit. It held them more securely in my helmet and gave me the confidence that I wasn’t going to loose my lovely looking new purchase, or be forking out for new lenses once I’d lost them to the tarmac.
The lens popped out incredibly easy, if I wanted. It is painfully simple and really obvious. It feels robust and trustworthy. I’ve worked for Oakley retailers in the past, you dread that moment when a customer asks “so how does that lens swap over then”? Once you’ve worked with them for a while its not a drama. You did however see the Saturday boy fill with fear and look for you to step in when confronted with the same request. With the Jawbreaker this isn’t/shouldn’t be the case. It’s very simple. I say the system is obvious, but unlike previous models once you’re wearing them its not entirely obvious to everyone in the world that the lens has the capacity to be changed. The usual strategy of sticking a giant lever on the glasses was always fairly crude and ugly, this system is way more refined.
My old glasses let you know you were wearing them. Your peripheral vision was constantly reminded about the perimeter of the glasses. These have no such issue. The field of vision was exceptional. If you want an out and out sports piece that will perform exceptionally well, these are my recommendation. Running or cycling, they’ve performed impeccably. I’m not traditionally a sunglass wearer! I just had to wait for the right product to come along, and the Oakley Jawbreaker was the one!by
