Made with a special C-5™ alloy that gives you plenty of flex without a lot of weight, these Whisker sunglasses are not only among Oakley's lightest wire frame designs, they're also reasonably priced--especially if you compare them to the titanium wire designs. This model features neutral transmission gold iridium lenses, one of the darkest XYZ Optics® lenses available from Oakley (at 12% visual light transmission, it's 3% off from Oakley's darkest plutonite wonders). Like the larger-frame Oakley sunglasses, the Whisker features Oakley metal icon logos along the hinges, but the detailing is so precise that you'll have to look close to spot the fine artistry.


  • The thinnest (and one of the lightest) C-5™ alloy wire frames ever developed by Oakley
  • Patented XYZ Optics® for minimal distortion
  • All Oakley lenses block 100% of UVA, UVB and UVC rays (plus blue light)
  • Neutral transmission gold iridium lenses have a 12% VLT (Visual Light Transmission) and are ideal for extremely bright light
  • Lenses meet the conformity assessment system for the American National Standards Institute (ANSI Z87.1) for eyewear and face protection
  • Tiny Oakley metal icons at the hinges
  • Specially woven, electro-static storage bag included

Nice shades
January 13, 2012

These Oakley sunglasses are pretty nice. I expected spring loaded frames but these are not. Overall very nice. Dark enough to keep from squinting and has a good warranty. Shipping was extremely fast across country even on a holiday weekend it only took 3 days to receive.

Great Price for Great Quality
May 30, 2012

For the price of these Oakley's you'll have a hard time finding higher quality sunglasses. I've had a few pairs of sub $100 nike sunglasses and there is no comparison to these. The frames feel very strong and for the price you can upgrade the lenses to polarized and still come out ahead.

Pros: great quality, great price

Good quality product, a few minor imperfections.
June 27, 2012

I bought these Whisker Oakley's in silver with dark grey. They look great! They were a Father's Day gift to my husband who loves them! He has a bigger head than I do and says they fit great, but when I have borrowed them, they feel a little too tight behind the ears for me. I also think there is too much space around the lenses, so you still get a little bit of sun in your eyes. The lenses are really great though. Good quality product, a few minor imperfections.

Pros: great look, rubber ends-don't slide down or fall off, Cons: tight fit, not full coverage from sun

Superb Sunglasses
October 07, 2011

I love these glasses...was able to purchase non-polarized lenses, which, coupled with their lightweight, makes them perfect for flying. Stylish, solid performers...

These sunglasses are lightweight and the metal frames are comfortable and stylish. I generally have a hard time finding glasses that fit but these are great.

Awesome Look
September 05, 2012

This pair of Whisker is one of my fav that I've gotten. I'm on the road for a long while most of the time and its in the day. With this Oakley Whisker, the polarised lens are awesome. It gives me good tint but without affecting the subjects ahead. It does not have weird distortions too. The fits just wraps around my face with very little space to allow the strong sun to reach my eyes. Overall, I highly recommend Oakley's sunglasses

Pros: great fit, good protection of uv only 9% penetration, solid build

September 10, 2012

Whiskers are the best model Oakley makes - very sturdy, looks fashionable in any setting. The polarized lenses are particularly impressive for any activity where glare is a problem. I use them for driving and they're great, although it does make it a bit more difficult to see my gps screen.

Great Fit!
June 22, 2012

I bought these for running. They fit great and stay in place while jogging. Light weight and comfortable on long runs. Very pleased with this purchase!

Pros: stay in place during exercise

Oakley Excellence
June 12, 2012

Love these sunglasses. This is my second pair. There is no distortion from the lenses and the shape has a subtle wrap around so you do not see the frame. I wear these daily and it is easy to forget you even have them on. I also prefer the thin metal frames to the plastic frames that are on so many of todays sunglasses. Great optics, highly recommend.

Pros: metal frames, light weight, great lenses, Cons: some crook in omaha is wearing my first pair

Sweet glasses

This is my second pair and I love them just as much as the first. Problem is sunglasses don't last forever. Luckily Oakley still makes them and they remain my favorite.

Oakley Quality For Less
March 26, 2012

The Whisker Sunglasses are a lightweight, classy, stylish and very affordable without sacrificing the integrity, quality and workmanship of the Oakley brand. These sunglasses are well constructed and designed to fit a wide range of individuals and lifestyles. A Best Buy in my book!

Pros: affordable, lightweight/stylish, excellent construction, great fit, it's an oakley!

February 16, 2013

These are great sunglasses! I travel alot for work and am constantly switching cars which means the sunglasses get tossed in my bags alot without a hard case. They are very durable and I love how lightweight they are. I highly recommend these!

Pros: Great design, lightweight

Husband loves his pair.
June 06, 2011

My husband, who is a man of very few words, is seemingly enjoying his new pair of Oakley's. I would recommend to anyone. Good quality and it takes good care of my husband eyes while driving and working outside.

Love them!
December 16, 2009

Love them! Will definitely be back!


Nice sunglasses
July 16, 2012

Nice sunglasses but too tight for my face. No hard case just cloth case. The frames are nicely made but did not look good on me. The silver color was a nice tone and not too loud.

Pros: well made, Cons: for small face

September 05, 2012

Fits well, good price, decent looking sunglasses. Overall a very good product. In my opinion OO B.I.P is better than B.I.P especially in bright conditions.


Special Gift
January 14, 2012

I purchased the sunglasses as a gift for my husband. He loves them! He has always liked the oakley brand. The frames are lightweight, stylish and great for his face.


My Favorite one!
December 20, 2011

When I got this in the mail it came in a box with the sunglasses and a black cloth pouch that I barely use. I was surprised it did not come with a microfiber towel for wiping (just use my rayban ones or the pouch itself). I use these polarized sunglasses regularly for everything! It blocks out the sun enough to reduce the glare and see comfortably and clearly. These glasses actually hugs on to my head pretty tightly compared to my raybans that were pretty loose. It stays where you put them which is a plus. The only downside I have about this is that the rubber grip on each side swivels around the frame so I tend to always twist it and look for the flat surface to be against my head before putting it on; probably won't be notice by most people. Also, it is kind of slightly cracking at the end of one side of the rubber grips. May be due to wear and tear though. Other than that, I love these Oakleys and would buy them again in a heartbeat! Still looks great after more than a year of use.

Pros: looks great!, fits tightly, great in sun, Cons: swiveling rubber grips, doesn't have precise detent

This is my 3rd pair of Oakley's only because I left my last pair in a rental car and you guessed it they couldnt find them and hour after I dropped of the car.I hope somone else is enjoying them as much as I did. So now its a new pair and I am just as happy with these as the last 2 pairs.

Great Optics and can read smartphone screen
July 18, 2012

I bought a pair of 00 black iridium flak jackets and love the fact that I can see my smartphone screen while wearing polarized oakleys. I own a pair of black iridium whiskers already and love the look and feel of the whiskers. It was a no-brainer to go the next logical step-- 00 black iridium polarized whiskers! Now what do I do with my old whiskers...

Pros: lightweight for metal frame, great driving glasses

The Best!
June 11, 2009

These are my second pair only because the last pair were stolen (I guess I'm not the only one that loves 'em too). Anyhow, so lightweight and strong...I play volleyball with them, they don't slip and I barely know they're on! My face is kinda wide and they compliment my contour very well by staying off my temples. I did have to buy a new pair of earsocks after 6 months (about $20 incl nose piece).

Very nice...
December 28, 2010

My husband found these glasses in the Oakley store almost a year ago and really liked them. I decided to get them for him for Christmas. I looked around for a month and Altrec was the ONLY place that I found them on sale! My husband loves the glasses and they are just like the ones in the Oakley store. My husband is a big guy with a wide face and these glasses are flattering and not too narrow.

Pros: Great design

Good Glasses
June 14, 2009

This is my first pair of Oakley's. The money was well worth it, they are very durable which is a problem I've had with sunglasses in the past. They are very comfortable on my face and don't irritate my eyes at all.
