Purchased a pair of Oakley Jupiter sunglasses from the outlet store in Gunwharf Quays Portsmouth. I paid £39.99 for my pair, this was a discounted price and are usually sold upwards of £80. My pair were a Ducatti special edition which are black with red detailing and black lenses.
Now I have never been a fan of expensive sunglasses, I used to purchase and wear cheap sunglasses from river island or Topman but I decided to take the plunge and buy my Oakleys as my cheaper pairs kept breaking, and if I'm honest they didn't really do much to keep the sun out of my eyes! I worked out that my £40 pair of Oakleys were equivalent to about 2 and a half cheaper sunglasses, which as long as they last isn't a bad return for my money.
The first thing I noticed was how much darker, but clearer everything was in the sun with the Oakleys on. Although not recommended I can look at the sun in my Oakleys with no trouble, definitely something you cannot do with cheap sunglasses. Everything is clear in the Oakleys, it is as if there is no sun and you haven't got glasses on if that makes any sense. Everything is constant and clear, rather than the fading and total darkness (or no darkness) you get with other sunglasses.
I will also add they are very good looking sunglasses. The newer Jupiter models are slightly squarer than the ones pictured above, the black and red frames are classy and stylish and the lenses, although not polarised like some Oakleys they are reflective enough that you cant see through them from the outside, something that I like in sunglasses.
The frames seem robust and strong, I have dropped them several times and they have survived, the Oakleys are definitely made to last.
In conclusion I would recommend the glasses to anyone who spends time out in the sun. As a former non-believer in expensive I would urge similar people to simply try on a pair. After all it is your eyes you are protecting!
