Hello everyone,

Before somebody replies with "these are not new" I want you to know that I always do my bit of research and I can confirm that these sunglasses are in fact new and have yet to be "officially released" by Oakley. I know that copies of Anoraks are floating around already on this forum, and Ebay, and Amazon, etcetera, but that is just the way it is these days. The SKU number is OO 9420. I've found the Anoraks here: Link

If you already obtained a pair of Anoraks just let it know what you think about them.

There are a few things with this design that caught my eye. The stems are straight so this indicates a more sports oriented frame. However there aren't any Sports Prizm lens options, not even Prizm Road or Prizm Golf, just Prizm everyday lenses. But maybe these Prizm sports lenses are coming in the near future?

There is an advancer build into the frame, the button is located on top of the nose bridge. So these are definitely sports oriented sunglasses but they are not a full wrapped design. More of a 6-base than an 8-base. I'm curious how these Anoraks are going to be positioned in the market by Oakley, we'll just wait for the SportRx video... 😉 Could be that the Anoraks are the follow up of the current Crossrange, but just with an advancer as an extra. The size is measured as 59 / 16 / 135 with a lens hight of 47.

Anyway here they are:
Matte dark grey with Prizm Sapphire

It's not a full wrapped design.

The advancer button is clearly visible, it's not a lever design but clearly a push button design.

That's it for now. Let it know that you think about them. I'm not sure about these since they seem to fall a bit in between of everything, but maybe that's exactly the way Oakley designed these Anoraks.

Not to tell you youre wrong-
But
They have already been released in store.

They are ok..... the advancer of course does as its made to do. Fit wise theyre a combination of the Sliver R and Sliver XL in the front. Sides are extremely thin and bc of that it sits lower than most.

Comfortable fit, similar fit to slivers but with the advancer. Advancer is alittle overkill as it’s not much of a sport frame but I can see the reason for the advancer.

These are at the Vault in the Outlets by me. Was also surprised to see the Clifdens in store as well. Still no Eyejacket redux in my stores though.

I don’t have access to Oakley Vaults or Oakley stores so I can’t see any store releases but I understand your comment on this.
I can see that they are indeed a combination of the Sliver R and XL, but a bit more sports oriented than the Slivers.
