The game has changed. Introducing SPLIT JACKET®, the official sunglasses of people who refuse to stand still.

Someday we’ll look back on the days before SWITCHLOCK™ and laugh. One size may fit all, but when you’re out conquering the world, one pair of lenses certainly doesn’t. That’s why Oakley engineered SPLIT JACKET® with revolutionary SWITCHLOCK™ technology that empowers you to quickly and easily change lenses (yes, you read that correctly) to suit your environment.

All SPLIT JACKET® lenses are hydrophobic/oleophobic, meaning they repel dust and help maintain a smudge resistant barrier against skin oils, lotions and fingerprints while preventing water from leaving streaks and sheens. For putting reflective glare in a strangle hold, our SPLIT JACKET® sunglasses are also available with our HDO® polarized lens.


Switchlock™ Technology

The nose piece pivots. A quick-release lower jaw opens with ease for fast lens changing and then closes to lock the lens securely in place. Optimal comfort. Minimal handling. Maximized optical clarity in any light conditions. Why settle for improving technology when you can completely change the game?

Lens Suspension System

Stress can compromise clarity by causing optical distortion. Introducing a revolutionary frame architecture that creates a suspension system for your lenses. They virtually float around the orbital space, isolated from compressive stresses for maximum optical clarity, comfort and fit.


Oakley Hydrophobic™ is a lens coating that prevents water from leaving streaks and sheens, which can compromise vision. Whether it’s rain, sweat or splashing runoff, H2O can’t get a foothold. And that’s just half the story.

Skin oils, fingerprints and lotions are easily wiped away without leaving a residue, eliminating the haze that makes ordinary lenses a nightmare to keep clean. We even made the coating anti-static so it won’t attract dust and dirt like ordinary lenses.

High Definition Optics® (HDO®)

High Definition Optics® (HDO®) take advantage of patented innovations, like XYZ Optics® for unbeatable clarity at all angles of vision — even at the sides of lens contours that open peripheral view and optimize protection against sun, wind and side impact. HDO® lenses surpass ANSI Z87.1 standards for clarity, refraction and prism.
