Review: Why its cool?
Being a bit of an Oakley pervert, i have gone through alot of sunglasses from their range. The Pro M frame is a design that stood out from the others, with its contempary design and interchangable lens system i knew that it would be an excellent addition to my collection and also to most functional one.
The price for the Pro M frame is a little bit steep, but i am convinced that the price is worth paying as Ii have never worn a set of sunglasses so comfortable (note that i use the hingeless version and cannot comment on the regular m frame). The visual clarity of the lenses is second to none. I use several different lenses for differing light conditions. The persimmon lens is one of the most versitile and i use this for medium to light conditions as the lens has light enhancing properties allowing me much clearer vision. For really sunny days with lots of glare i use the +red iridium which does the job well.
While paddling the frame fits perfectly to my head, Oakley use a patented 3 point fit system on their frame. Having such comfort comes at a price though, due to the fact that the frames do not collape you must carry them in the Oakley Pro M frame vault, this is not always convenient as the box is quite large (also an extra cost on top of the glasses).
There is a huge range of lens shape and tint options available, enough to suit everybodies needs. the frame comes in many different constructions and colours. Ii reccomend http://rubensmenswear.com/ as the place to purchase buy your M frames as you can custom build your frame to something not available in the shops, the final price is also alot cheaper than the shops.
