Eyewear mavericks Oakley are back with their winter-ready ‘High Definition Optics’ apparel collection – celebrating 30 years of their light-shifting HDO sunglasses lens. Taking a futuristic approach, each piece of the collection features metallic detailing for a shiny space-age aesthetic.
Included in the line-up, the Californian innovators treat us to two seasonally-apt zip-up fleeces to keep you toasty on those bitter winter days, with a matching pair of black fleece trousers to encase your lower half in fuzzy warmth. Sticking with the jackets, two lightweight half-zip anoraks features breezy mesh linings for cool comfort, with a rollaway velcro hood for quick coverage when it begins to pour.
Moving onto the tees, soft cotton short-sleeves come plastered with the Oakley’s logo across the chest, plus pocket t-shirts in shades of orange and white feature a functional zip pocket at the chest to lock away your smaller valuables.
Accessory wise, there’s a shining silver bucket hat, a glimmering tote bag, and a chest rig that boasts a series of zip-pockets throughout to keep your daily essentials safely stowed away.
Saving the best until last, we’ve joined forces with Oakley to produce an exclusive colourway of the M2 Frame XL Sunglasses with HDO etched lens to celebrate the techs 30th anniversary.
Built using the brand’s stress-resistant, hard-wearing yet lightweight O-Matter plastic, the pair boast ‘Unobtainium’ rubber grips at the nose and ear to increase grip even when you’re breaking a sweat. Perfect for a variety of sporting activities, the XL lens shape is the latest evolution of M2, and it takes performance even further with an enhanced vertical dimension, so even when your head is subtly tilted downward, things that matter will still be in your field of view.
Prizm technology bolsters the M2’s – another amazing feat of Oakley engineering – which precisely tunes colours to maximise contrast and enhance visibility. Born out of years of research into colour science, Prizm tech comes in a variety of different lens shades, with each one is slightly adjusted to allow only certain wavelengths of light through which really help to bring colours to life when worn in bright conditions.
What’s more Prizm lenses don’t just improve colours, they also block 100% of UVA/UVB/UVC rays and blue light up to 400nm, ensuring your eyes remain protected at all times.[ratings]
