Oakley's Radars are available with three different-sized interchangeable lenses – the Paths have the smallest – and with numerous frame and lens combos.

Oakleys are famous for their toughness and these are no exception, passing the relevant ANSI (American National Standard Institute) impact tests.

They come with an extra nose-piece to alter the fit, plus a hard case and pouch/lens wipe, and it’s also possible to get Oakley prescription lenses for them.

The consensus of our testers was that the Radars were also the glasses that you least noticed you were wearing. Expensive? Yes, but the combination of design, quality, durability and styling means they’re worth it.
