Split Jacket - the poor mans Jawbones?
For riding I love my Oakley Radars...sunglasses are one of the few things I always pay full price for and never scrimp or look in sales for.
For driving and generall posing about I had an ancient pair of jackets which I recently flogged on.
I wasn't out shopping for Jawbones, but my chum (well done for getting up the Tourmalet Mark!!) convinced me to try some. They were great but felt a bit big.
The alternative was a model I didn't know existing in the Oakley range, the split jacket.
I tried them and liked them... and then deliberated for weeks before ordering from my good friends at Steptoes.
They come with a spare set of lenses included and having had them a couple of months now I really like them. I have used them for riding and off the bike and they really do the job. Even better, for the Oakley brand they are priced reasonably competitively.
Having checked with the store, vented lenses and other spares will follow soon and there could be the opportunity to design your own on the Oakley custom site.
Most people have a marmite approach to that particular brand but I have sworn by their products for nearly 20 years now.
My only worry is that I look like Kevin Pietersen now...
