The Oakley Fast Jacket is the 7th generation of its sports performance sunglasses. The new sunglass which is due to be launched in June/July 2011 will use the new Switchlock Technology which will revolutionize the speed in changing the lenses on Oakley sports sunglasses.
The existing Oakley Flak Jacket and Oakley Jawboneand Oakley Split Jacket sports designs can take some time to change both lenses when needing a different colour lens option.
Oakley Fast Jacket has a new device called a Switchlock which is manufactured from MEM stainless steel for lightweight and strength issues. The Switchlock is unclipped with one swing movement and then the lens just simply slides out of the frame. This switchlock system enables the wearer to change the lenses in the sunglasses while on the move.
Oakley Fast jacket has a new lens design to give excellent sun and wind protection. Oakley has redesigned the lens mould process to produce a 81 mm lens blank to give the lenses the best optical qualities. The frame curve uniformly fits all head sizes with a new head sculpting design.
Oakley Fast Jacket will be available in 6 to 8 new frame colours, from the new polished chrome to the cool powder blue colour. The best cosmetic look of the sunglasses is the polished stainless steel Switchlock the side of each lens, which catch the light when worn.
Oakley Fast Jacket is expected to be launched by Oakley in June/July, but with a backlog of pre-orders could push this date slightly back, so to reserve a pair telephone Sunglasses-direct on 01159582888 to be the first with Oakley Fast Jacket.
