The O-Matter frames are made if pliable and lightweight nylon infused plastic materials. The chassis might be ultra-lightweight but don't let that fool you, they are also exceptionally durable. These glasses are going to be able to withstand extreme temperatures with ease. Whether participating in winter sports or spending the day under the hot sun, these frames will survive without even becoming the least bit brittle.

Frame Colors

When it comes to your personal style, the Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 sunglasses are here to help. There are, unfortunately, only two frame colors that you can choose from when ordering these glasses. However, the lenses are interchangeable, so you can change up your style a little bit by swapping out the lenses as needed.

When ordering the Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 sunglasses, you can choose from polished black or pearl (white) frames. This is satisfactory for most consumers as they are neutral colors and go well with most styles.

Lenses

The Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 lenses are made of Plutonite which they claim is one of the purest optical materials currently on the market. It is, essentially, a high-grade form of polycarbonate which is common among sunglass lenses. However, the Plutonite is free from impurities, making them a higher quality than others.

As you would expect, the Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 lenses can provide you with 100% protection from the suns harmful UV rays. This feature is built right into the lens as opposed to other companies that simply coat their lenses. These are going to keep your eyes wholly protected from UV rays as well as blue light.

As mentioned above, the lenses of the Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 glasses are interchangeable. This allows you to choose the lenses that work best for what you are doing. Regardless of the lenses that you want, however, you can be sure that they will be of exceptional quality.

The lenses of the Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 glasses use High Definition Optics (HDP) to give you better visual fidelity and clarity, ensuring that you are able to see what is going on around you with ease. Additionally, the HDO technology ensures that the lenses are impact-resistant, keeping your eyes safe from flying debris while you're out and about.

Oakley utilizes XYZ Optics when manufacturing the lenses for the Half Jacket 2.0 glasses. This means that the lens is cut from a single sheet of material. The cut is made along the same axis, so you are sure to get the perfect optical alignment. After the cut, they taper the thickness of the lens from the middle, outward, to reduce the risk of light refraction. This method of lens construction helps give you better clarity, which can drastically reduce the risk of eye strain.

Lens Options

There are a couple of options when it comes to choosing your lenses. You want to make sure that you find the right ones for the task at hand. There are various options depending on the weather around you, whether it's cloudy or brightly lit. You will want to make sure that you are choosing the right lens to suit your needs.

You can choose from lenses that are either polarized or non-polarized. There are advantages and disadvantages to both lenses, and it is more of a personal preference. Polarized lenses are ideal for those who want a reduction in the suns glare and don't want to get blinded while they are out and about. On the other hand, non-polarized lenses treat all sunlight the same but help reduce the overall intensity of it.

In addition to choosing the polarization of your lenses, the Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 glasses allow you to select different colors. Each color gives you various benefits, so make sure that you choose the one that best fits your needs.

The violet iridium lenses have a light transmission of about 14%. This means that it will let about 14% of the suns light through the lens, making them ideal for brightly lit conditions. They feature a neutral contrast and have a base lens color of violet.

The other option for the Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 lenses that you have is the black iridium. This lens has an 11% light transmission, which also makes these ones great for sunny days. Again, these lenses feature a neutral contrast. However, the base color is black.

There are some reviewers who would have liked to have seen some other lens options like they were accustomed to with other Oakley sunglasses. However, most consumers are content with the few choices that they do have available to them.

Protection

When it comes to spending time under the sun and out and about, you want to make sure that you are protected as much as possible. When the sun is shining most people would cover their skin or wear sunblock to protect themselves from the harmful UV rays, so why not cover your eyes with a pair of sunglasses?

The Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 shades offer you exceptional protection while you're out and about. The lenses will shield your eyes from UVA, UVB, and UVC rays for optimal protection. Additionally, they will filter out and protect from blue light, up to 400nm. Most people don't realize the risk blue light poses to their eyes and don't think to protect against it. Thankfully, these shades will have you covered.

It's not just light that the sunglasses can protect you from, however. Since they are shatterproof, they can act almost as a pair of safety glasses. That said, if you are looking for a pair of safety glasses or goggles, then there are better options that are made for that purpose. These shades will help prevent damage to your eyes from flying debris that you might encounter while you're on the go. Whether a pebble flies at your face or a tree branch flies into you, you can rest easy knowing that your eyes will have a little extra protection.

Size

When it comes to your sunglasses, the way they fit is crucial to their overall comfortability and functionality. If the glasses are too small, then they will cause great discomfort, however, if they are too large they will not sit correctly on your face and fall off while you're out and about.

The good news for most customers is that the Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 sunglasses can accommodate many consumers with ease. Of course, there are going to be some people that just can't fit into the glasses, but most people have had no problems with them.

That is especially true when you are purchasing a high-end pair of shades like the Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 glasses. Thankfully the Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 has a reliable and robust construction that can withstand a lot of abuse.

The O-Matter frames combined with the Plutonite lenses help ensure that the sunglasses will stay intact for quite a while. The lenses are scratch-resistant so no need to worry about them getting scratched up and making them virtually unwearable. Additionally, both the frames and the lenses are shatterproof, giving you an extra layer of protection.

Of course, the durability of your sunglasses, as with any product, is dependant on how well you take care of it. The Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 sunglasses come with a carrying case so you will want to make sure you are storing it in the case when not in use. This can help prevent any accidental breakage.

Of course, there are always a few consumers who weren't completely satisfied with the overall durability of the Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 sunglasses. However, that does not hold true for the vast majority.

Accessories

When you purchase the Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 sunglasses, you are also going to receive a micro bag. This bag actually has a couple of uses that you can take advantage of.

Additionally, you can use the bag to clean the lenses. If you get a smudge on the lens and need to clean it, you can just use the micro bag to get the job done.

Value

When you are looking into getting a pair of Oakley's, then you are going to expect to be spending a pretty penny. The Half Jacket 2.0 glasses are no different. Yes, they are expensive, but for a good reason. They are made to last. The long-lasting durability of the shades and excellent features make them a great value.

The Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 sunglasses might not be cheap, but for most consumers, they are well worth the extra cost.
