If you’re in the market for Oakley tactical sunglasses, you can’t go wrong with Oakley SI variants of some of their most iconic frames. We ran the numbers and picked out the fastest-moving frames in the Oakley SI collection. Read on for the sunglasses GovX members nationwide are adding to their athletic loadouts and tactical arsenals.
The Gascan is a staple of Oakley SI engineering, a broad shield that makes its tactical presence known. With its big and bold wraparound fit and iconic Oakley profile, the Gascan is an all-time bestseller that comes in a variety of different color options. Our personal favorite? The US Flag icon variant, with a touch of old glory on the temples. It’s a sleek and undeniably Oakley way to fly your flag.
The Holbrook is the Swiss Army Knife of Oakley shades. It’s a super versatile fit suited for most face shapes, and compliments just about any pants and shirt combo you can think of. A tactical update on the classic Wayfarer-style of glasses, the Holbrook has clean lines and sleek looks, and is perfect for cruising around during the day.
Thin, sleek, and fierce, the SI Whisker is a statement of aerodynamic intent. With its wire-frame construction, it’s undoubtedly not a tactically proficient frame since it doesn’t have the kind of side coverage you’d expect from say, the Gascan or the Fuel Cell, it’s still a dangerous looking pair of shades. Ultra lightweight, adjustable nosepads for the ideal fit, and Prizm lenses for enhanced color and clarity, it’s ready to rock.
The M-Frame has been around for a long, long time. A purely Oakley invention that’s been in operation for over 30 years, it’s the kind of protective, athletic, and range-ready lens shape that inspires the question, if it ain’t broke, why fix it? Not to say the M-Frame hasn’t seen some improvements over its three decades of service. This 3.0 ballistic frame features High Definition Optics complete with an anti-fog coating, and meets or exceeds high mass and high velocity impact requirements per ANSI Z87.1 standards. It’s fully compatible with helmet-mounted night vision devices and a variety of top brand tactical helmets and boasts a secure fit even in inclement weather. So if you spend a lot of time around firearms—or work construction where flying debris is a hazard—this is the frame for you.
Oakley takes the half-rim lens style and runs with it with the appropriately named Half Jacket. This 2.0 version is the perfect shooters frame, with ANSI-certified ballistic lenses that you can swap out easily. Performance, protection, and comfort are sculpted into a wrap-around frame shape for unobstructed view of the range ahead of you.
Another half-rim style here, the Flak 2.0 XL is one of our better sellers for men with big domes. The XL has wider lens coverage and a specialized curvature for defending against sun, wind, and debris. Rely on the grippy earsocks and nosepads to keep this frame in place, even with heavy perspiration, which makes this a perfect choice for runners, hikers, and athletes.
Designed with direct input from law enforcement pros and competitive shooters, the Speed Jacket delivers the aerodynamic performance you want in a modern silhouette. With ANSI-certified ballistic lenses and a wide field of view, enjoy clear, defensive visibility in hazardous scenarios. The thin ear stems are designed to be compatible with over-the-ear communication systems, so if operating is your thing, the Speed Jacket might be the ally you’re looking for.
Get a load of this unique bad boy. You’ll probably immediately know why it’s referred to as the “Batwolf.” Its defining characteristic is the single continuous lens that sweeps across the lightweight O Matter frame. The other detail we’re big fans of: The interchangeable temple icon can be swapped out to change your look in seconds.
The Fuel Cell is another iconic Oakley look, with broad coverage on the sides and a pronounced frame shape. The three-point fit holds these squarely and securely on your face, making it another excellent option for running drills and making quick turns at the range. Clean, sharp and with an undeniably Oakley profile, it’s a top-seller for the image of it alone.
The Straight Jacket is so named because it’s a little bit … unhinged. The aggressively curvy look on the face and arms isn’t for everyone, but if you can pull it off … more power to you, man. Designed for smaller to medium faces, its got a wraparound, sleek shape that you gotta see to believe. High Definition Optics. Grippy, secure fit. Try on the Straight Jacket under your own volition.
