Oakley – Snow Helmets

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

The Oakley Snow Helmets which were unveiled early this year, are now available through OakleySI.com.

Under development for three years, the Mod 3 and Mod 5 helmets incorporate a modular brim system so the wearer can choose the correct interface to get a tight seal between helmet and goggle. Additionally, the chinstrap is magnetic, the liner is removable and it’s got a BOA fit system.

Oakley Introduces MultiCam Tropic

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

Oakley has introdcued MultiCam Tropic to a couple of their most popular designs. I prefer the Gascan.

SI Gascan in MultiCam Tropic

Gascan lenses are cut from the curve of a single lens shield, then mounted in the frame to maintain the original, continuous contour. The look is so unique, we customized our corporate logo just for this eyewear. The lightweight O Matter® frame material offers premium comfort while our Three-Point Fit retains the lenses in precise optical alignment.

• Plutonite® Lenses offer top UV Protection filtering 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm
• Three-Point Fit holds lenses in precise optical alignment while eliminating pressure points common with frames that hook the ears
• O-Matter™ stress-resistant frame material is both lightweight and durable for all-day comfort and protection

SI Holbrook in MultiCam Tropic

Holbrook is a timeless, classic design fused with modern Oakley technology. Inspired by the screen heroes from the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, this design epitomizes the spirit of exploration and adventure. The iconic American frame design is accented by metal rivets and Oakley icons, perfect for those who seek equal parts performance and style.

• Plutonite® Lenses offer top UV Protection filtering 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm
• Patented High Definition Optics® (HDO®) provides superior optical clarity and razor-sharp vision at every angle
• O-Matter™ stress-resistant frame material is both lightweight and durable for all-day comfort and protection

Oakley Introduces James Dietz Collection

Monday, May 16th, 2016

I am a huge fan of artist James Dietz and apparently, so is the team at Oakley SI. Dietz is well known for the unit and historical prints he has done over the years.

3_RH-Apr0416-1251

These limited edition sunglasses are pure Dietz. One of the things that James did to make them a cut above, was create custom sketches of relevant small arms which are printed on the temples. These sketches are similar to the drawings he does in the margins of his unit-only versions of his prints. It’s a level of customization few get to enjoy. Additionally, Oakley worked with Dietz to print a copy of the actual artwork that inspired each set of custom eye pro on the storage bag. The effect is awesome.

1_RH-Apr0416-1205-1

I asked Oakley’s Military Category Manager, Drew Wallace about how they made this team-up happen. Wallace commented, “The partnership was as simple as picking up the phone and calling James, building trust and sharing common values. He is a truly wonderful guy and a lot of fun to collaborate with. We commissioned him on three custom sketches that tied directly to the paintings, and we felt could translate onto eyewear graphically. Ultimately the collection was designed to bring awareness to Memorial Day and make a collection that felt special and had meaning across the community.”  Explaining how satisfying it was, he added, “For me, one of the more special projects I have worked on.”

The new James Dietz collection from Oakley SI consists of three different models.  Other than the special artwork, these offer the same level of eye protection as the standard models.

Fuel Cell

4_RH-Apr0416-1168

This Dark Grey on Grey model features a custom sketch by James of an M4 and the storage bag is printed with the Dietz painting “I shall defeat them on the field of battle” commemorating OIF. James actually went out to 2/75 at Ft Lewis to paint some of the guys for that work of art.

Crankshaft

5_RH-Apr0416-1179

The temple of this Tan and Grey eye pro features a sketch of a .50 M2 with the storage bag emblazoned with the famous paining, “Task Force Ranger” a depiction of a moment in the Battle of Mogadishu. James personally met with many members of the conflict and did a large dedication ceremony for the unveiling of the painting.

Frogskin

6_RH-Apr0416-1186

Moss and Grey in color, the Frogskin incorporates the sketch of an M1 Garand with the bpstorage bag emblazoned with the painting “Silencing the guns”, with a D-Day scene. This painting features LT Dick Winters, of Band of Brothersfame, who met with Jim in order to get the details in the paintung right.

This short video gives a great overview of the line.

We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

The SI Ballistic Shock Tube was released in May. It is a low-profile, high wrap, ballistic eyewear that will be submitted to APEL next year.

Think of it as a ballistic alternative to the Racing Jacket which is popular in motorsports. It features a removable lower jaw that was designed for improved lens retention. The ear stems were also thinned down for wear with ear pro.
