Generally, Oakley has received positive and good reviews online. Its valued customers are very impressed on the quality of its products and its innovative designs.
Here are some of the reviews it has received.
My Gascans arrived a couple of days ago. They looked even better in person than the pictures on amazon. I was very pleased when took them out the box. They came earlier than the vendor stated, would definately buy from this seller again. Perfect fit, very comfortable, and good coverage of sun blocking. I love the tint on the lense,they really brighten everything,and are great for cutting down on glare and contrast. The bronze is not to dark either. These are large and have somewhat bling styling, maynot be for everyone. One of the reviews I read earlier said that they didnt fit,but he stated that he was an average size guy. Well Oakley states that they are made for large melons. They make a Gascan small,that are styled a little diferently,and fit a little tighter. I would suggest to anyone to go to the mall and try on a pair before ordering. Sunglasses are like shoes,they all fit differently.- By Weaver Jones (Tampa, FL), amazon.com
Seems like a lot of the negative reviews are from people who didn't "test drive" the glasses or do much research on the glasses before purchasing them. Oakleys are not cheap, by any means. They have a variety of glasses that serve different purposes and have different fits and lens shades. I have the polarized Straight Jackets and they fit me great. The Gascans, IMO, are more for a "fashion statement" as they had somewhat of a loose fit. They would not be well-suited for sports but would probably be great for driving or hanging around the pool. I use my Straight Jacket's for bike riding, driving, shooting, etc and they are an all-around great fitting pair of glasses with rubberized frame "sleeves" that help keep your glasses in place. Do your homework before spending $150+ for glasses!- By Paul D. Talley , amazon.com
Pros: Shatter proof
Cons: The only thing that I don't like is my nose pieces fall off to easy.
Summary: I own three to four pairs of oakleys and out of all of them, the half jackets are my favorites. From my point of view, you can never go wrong with a pair of these sunglasses. Oakley has specially design these sunglasses for military usage. ... read more. -by hohnster28, epinions.com
