Product Overview

To be a top class MMA fighter, to be a top class in any sport you first have to be an athlete and what does every athlete need? No matter if your a professional, an amateur or you just train for fun – you need to have a top quality pair of sunglasses that can handles the extremes of your training regimes. Today we are looking at Oakley Sunglasses specifically the Oakley Radarlock Path Men’s Sunglasses.

main_OO9181-19_radarlock_polished-black-black-iridium_010_66349_png_hero_MMA_UFC_MMAGateway_Oakley Radarlock Review AthleteWhen I’m running, cycling, climbing or drilling combinations outside in the sun, I need a pair of sunglasses that can adapt with me so to speak, they must maximise my vision, while also being lightweight and they need to be able to take the bumps that all glasses take but especially as a choice for an athlete!

That why I love my Oakley Radarlock Path Men’s Sunglasses, because really I have had my pair for over 2 years now and I have never had a problem with them, they still are fully functional, few scuffs here and there, but never any cracked lenses or bent or broken frame.

I have bought a few replacement lenses in those few years, but only as a style switch up choice and because my original lenses did get a bad scratch after about a year of having them, but that was because a bit of rubble fell down a mountain I was ascending with some friends, nobody was hurt, but we all got a face full of about 50 little stones and a load of dust so I can let Oakley off for a scratch given the scenario!

Look at this video to check these awesome Sunglasses out at closer level –


Whats the best parts of these Sunglasses?

    1. So lightweight and comfortable yet durable – I agree with my friend in the video above, the Oakley Radarlock Path Men’s Sunglasses have to be the most comfortable sunglasses i have ever tried on. But part of what makes them so comfortable is the fact that they are so light, you literally will hardly notice them on your face – but within that don’t let the lightweight fool you, because these sunglasses are also the most durable I have ever had. The O-Matter™ stress-resistant frame material is basically a reinforced plastic specifically designed to be strong enough to take the rigorous extremes of a triathlon, or any extreme endeavour!main_OO9181-19_radarlock_polished-black-black-iridium_028_66356_png_hero_MMA_UFC_MMAGateway Oakley Radarlock Review Athlete
    2. They will never slip! – The Unobtainium rubber ear socks and Nose piece increase grip as you sweat, which  means what? You guessed it – the harder you workout the less you have to keep fiddling around putting your shades back in the right position! That has always been massive for me, and really allows me to focus on my run, cycle or climb without worrying about my glasses flying off!
    3. Amazing Lenses that are so easy to change – So we all know that Oakley have amazing lens quality, The Radarlock Sunglasses come with Oakley’s patented Plutonite Lenses which offer top UV Protection filtering 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm. There are also even more advanced upgrade options for lenses like getting a Polarised or Photochromic lenses for instance.But its not just the quality of the lenses, is also the discreet, easy to use and secure interchangeable lens technology, which allows you to add any lens colour or type that you want to suit any scenario! Just a simple flip of a switch, the lenses slide out nice and easily, then just slide the new ones in, secure the switches and your good to go!
    4. As a simple extra point to note – MAN THEY LOOK SO COOL! 




Pros

  • Oakley Radarlock Path lenses are special sunglasses on a number of levels, because they really enhance the performance of traditional lenses because these touch your cheeks, and help extend the upper field of view – so there is absolutely no vision blockage at all while wearing them and almost feel like your putting a mask on.
  • Oakley’s Plutonite Lenses really keep your eyes fully protected at any speed no matter what the height, or weather intensity, because as standard  you get top quality UV Protection which filters 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light rays up to 400nm!main_OO9181-19_radarlock_polished-black-black-iridium_019_66351_png_hero_MMA_UFC MMAGateway Oakley Radarlock Review Athlete
  • The Switchlock interchangeable lens technology, really does make lens changing much faster and more secure then any other imitations I have tried.
  • I don’t exactly what kind of Unobtainium rubber is used on the nose piece and ear socks, but as I mentioned earlier it is huge that the glasses actually grip to your face better the more you sweat!
  • I know its a fancy way to just say reinforced plastic, but the again Oakley patented O-Matter stress-resistant frame material really is so lightweight and durable which makes them really comfortable to wear and will protect you in the most extreme scenarios.
  • Like we discussed earlier, there are many lens upgrade options for different activities/requirements that you have as an athlete, but ultimately the standard High Definition Optics Lense is a collection of patented technologies which give Oakley Sunglasses the ability to apparently consistently exceed the national testing standards of the  to meet American National Standards Institute for optical clarity, visual fidelity, and impact resistance.
  • Water does not stick to the lenses! So even if its pouring rain, your vision will still remain clear.
  • While the item is described on Oakleys own website as being for Men, I would say that with the colour variant options, and the strictly sport design it makes them Unisex for me, so I think its a plus that Men or Women can wear these Oakley Radarlock Shades.
  • Because the Switchlock interchangeable lens technology is so easy to use and there are so many variations to choose from, it also means that as an athlete you can adapt your vision to keep up with changing light and weather conditions.main_OO9181-04_radarlock_matte-heather-grey-g30-iridium_001_68520_png_hero_MMA_UFC_MMAGateway_Oakley Radarlock Review Athlete
  • You get a beautiful carry case, lens cleaner, one spare lens set and one spare nose grip, which are all nice extra benefits to have.
  • Style right? I cant get bored of mentioning this because they are so cool to look at 🙂

Cons

  • Definitely not cheap! So if your on a tight budget then these are not for you – but lets be honest when it comes to anything you have to pay extra to get the best and especially with things like sunglasses that take a beating all day paying extra definitely pays off, like I said earlier I have had my Radlocks for over 2 years and no major damage to note.
  • Buying extra lenses from Oakley is also expensive which is annoying again if you have a tight budget but want a few lens choices – but don’t forget that you do get a spare lens set as standard!
  • Its really only the price that keeps me from giving this item a flat 10 out of 10, but if price isn’t an issue for you then you will literally have no negatives with these sunglasses from my perspective.

  1. This is a great overview of the sunglasses and I know my nephew would appreciate the quality of these glasses, if you do a lot of hiking or climbing it is best to make sure you have a quality product as you say they adapt to the light and good vision is very important, I always believe you get what you pay for and often I will wait till I can afford it or look out for the product going on sale, notice they are on offer on Amazon just now so would make a great Christmas gift for someone who loves the outdoors

    • Hi Katie, great to hear you like this review and these Oakley Radarlock Sunglasses – like you say its a great gift for xmas for anyone who loves the outdoors. Yes Amazon is great for getting price reductions, but soon you will be able to order sunglasses directly from Oakley via this post!

      So if you or anyone you know is planning a huge hike or any big athletic endeavour, then make sure you come back to get some Oakleys!

      Also if you ever cant get outside for whatever reason, but you still want to run, then think about getting yourself a quality treadmill

      See you again!

  2. Oakley is the best sunglasses company in the world for athletes.
    You can use them for running, cycling and more.
    Really good review on the product, don’t you have a link where we can buy it? I know my dad will be happy if i order this for him before the end of the year

    • Hi Raimana, nice to see you here and your right Oakley are the best sunglasses company for athletes hands down.

      Glad you liked the review, if you click on any of the pictures or some of links embedded in the review then those links will take you to the Oakley website so you can place an order.

      Also if your dad would like these sunglasses, then he might also like a good duffel bag for all his training equipment.

      Thanks for your support!

  3. Hi Marley,

    Great review!

    I am a fan of Oakley sunglasses. My husband and I have a few pairs, and we love them very much!
    This model looks beautiful. I like the look!
    Just a question, please. Of what material the lens is made? Also, is it a curved or a flat lens? It is critical for me to know these details because these can make a difference in the image quality.

    Thank you for this excellent post!

    • Hi again Daniella! You and your husband sound like some regular Oakley nuts lol. But yeah seriously trust me sister the Radarlocks are amazing they are my actual favourites from Oakley and I’ve tried  lot of their sunglasses.

      The lenses are made of a patented materiel Oakley call Plutonite, which stops every wavelength of ultraviolet radiation from the sun, so all harmful rays are blocked while vision is maximised, durable too, its a really fascinating material.

      The lenses themselves are curved as the glasses have a beautiful wrap around feel across your eyes – so comfy 🙂

      Also i’m not sure if you saw this from before but its really great for your home gym.

      See you again soon!

  4. These look like a great pair of sunglasses. I need a quality pair because I want to start mountain walking and at the top I’ve heard it can get very bright. So, I need a pair that will allow me to see properly without getting blinded! These could be the pair, thanks for all of the information!

  5. Yeah the price is definitely really expensive, however, I know from experience that buying cheap sunglasses is fine because of the price, but don’t expect them to last more than a couple months, if that. Every time I buy cheap sunglasses they have broken within 2 months of buying them. I love Oakley, but I have yet to take the leap and buy nice sunglasses. I know they have a very good warranty on them and they back up everything they sell. Maybe I’ll have to take a leap on these. I love the design and look of these sunglasses though.

    • Hey Kyle, yeah exactly bro like you say, you just cant afford to go cheap with things like training sunglasses, but at the same time don’t put yourself in any financial trouble because of leaping in for these sunglasses too soon. But yeah definitely when the time is right then come back here, because you really cant get better then the Radarlocks bro.

      You might also like these gloves if your getting into UFC now.

      Thanks for your support!

  6. Hey Marley, cheers for the review. These sunnies look awesome!

    I am an Oakley fan because of the looks and the clarity of Oakley lenses is amazing… especially the polarized ones! I also love the Oakley Custom shop, adding special decals to the frame print and changing the colour of the ‘O’. Wondering if the Radarlock sunglasses are available there?

    • Hi Sven, nice to see you here and yes that’s exactly the same reasons why i like Oakley, so cool to look at and ultimately the best quality lenses around. Yes the Radarlocks are available on the Custom Shop, they are one of the most popular Oakley sunglasses, so you you can customise them at order.

      Also if you like things that just look nice, well you need to get one of these T-shirts.

      See you again my friend!

  7. I’ve needed new sunglasses for a while now but there are so many products on the market that I didn’t even know where to start. Your article made the entire process much easier because the review was extremely comprehensive and gave me everything I could want to know about the product before buying it. I also admire your honesty as you didn’t neglect to list the cons of the product, the video was also very helpful.

    Thanks

    • Hey Jacob, thanks for your feedback! Yeah sure these sunglasses aren’t perfect, but they are as close as you can get in my book, so i think it sounds like the right time for you to make an order, or comeback when your ready! Oakleys are the awesome!

      These sunglasses are especially great for going on long runs, and so are these trainers.

      See you again!
