Popular Brands Product Review: Oakley Men's Carbon Prime Sunglasses
Initially, when Oakley released the Carbon Prime glasses, even us here at Ratedfu, couldn't get our hands on them. Even when we could, we first balked at the price. $660 for a pair of glasses? That's rent to some people. However, we are glad that Oakley launched them again and did a price drop of $150, because these are probably the best pair of sunglasses we've ever tried on. The eyewear is made of a carbon fiber that you so rarely see on eyewear, and has a curve that is so sharp it is breathtaking. While you wear these glasses on your face, they feel so light. It almost feels like wearing a bag of paper clips. The noise piece is a bit narrow, so if you have a big nose, beware or you may have to adjust/remove the nose guard. But, the resulting hold is very secure. I did a test for you guys! While, we are on negatives, I wasn't too thrilled about the case that was provided with my purchase, but again, the glasses make up for it.
For those who like to use Oakley for sports, like baseball, hunting, or skiing, there shouldn't be any complaints either, because the spacing and coverage of the lens is in my opinion optimal, yet at the same time very casual. There are hardly any gaps and it shouldn't wrap or rub up against your cheeks.
The Carbon Prime is more than 3 times than the average Oakley pair of glasses. There is a limited version of these and they come in various colors. They may not be the be the best choice for your first or even second pair of Oakley's. However, you'll make a statement, they are worth every penny and after wearing these for 48 hours, loved every minute.
