New from Oakley, the Global War on Terrorism eyewear line was released in recognition of the Military service members who have served, or continue to serve in the Global War on Terrorism. The line consists of several popular models of SI Oakley eyewear, incorporated with design features unique to the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal created by an executive order of President George W. Bush on March 12, 2003.

This particular model is the SI Flak Jacket XLJ GWOT. Flak Jacket XLJ is impact resistant to all ANSI Z87.1 standards for high-mass and high-velocity impact, and features Plutonite lenses which filter out 100% of UVA/UVB/UVC and harmful blue light up to 400 nm. The frame is constructed of O Matter frame material, for lightweight, durability, and comfort. Additional features include three-point fit, interchangeable Unobtainium nose pad options, and Iridium lens coating. The SI Flak Jacket XLJ GWOT comes with a protective carry bag which also incorporates the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal design feature.

      So I guess that no one wears Oakley anymore?

      • D says:

        Of course we wear Oakley. Just not these. I think you may overestimate the value of the GWOT ribbon.

        • That Blue Falcon says:

          I had a GWOT ribbon before I had a deployment. This just means that I volunteered to go to war (or, in the case of some people, to hide in TRADOC while getting free Applebee’s). At least Oakley didn’t pick the Army Service Ribbon – then no one would know if I liked the Army or I supported gay pride.

    Flak Jackets are cool. Putting your ribbon you get for showing up to work on them is not…

    appreciate the concept, but i agree with a lot of the guys here, GWOT service medal would not have been my first choice, Afghan Campaign Medal? Iraqi campaign Medal? definitely.

    Hell, even the GWOT expeditionary would have been a better choice.

    I get what they are trying to symbolize, but to me it just represents the guys who sat and watched the rest of us. my 2 cents.
