I have had a pair of these for near thirteen years, got them when I was four and they were hand-me-downs from a family friend who got them when they came out in '93, I believe. They have been very good to me with no problems of fogging or problems only recently replaced them with anon vintage goggles because of a scratch that has been there since day one.fit any face size small medium or large and they will last forever. lenses are expensive though so it is sometimes cheaper to buy new goggles for the same price as a lens

It fits great ( medium face ). I had not vent. issues with it, no fogging what-so-ever. It looks real nice. I took it out on sunny days, and on cloudy days...it worked just beautifully in both conditions. If you are still making up your mind, and compared this with another similar item...this is the one to go with!!!
Are these googles polarized???
Are these googles polarized???
all around good goggle
this goggle isnt the most stylish but it gets the job done I used it for over 4 years
OAKLEY!!!!! NEED I SAY MORE? COMFORT,STYLE AND FUNCTION! YOU CAN'T GO WRONG!!!
not bad for the price
they are cool looking, the glare is minimal, but they were a little annoying in the rain - fogging up a little and blocking view with rain drops. all in all good purchase though.
These goggles are a great deal. I bought the yellow lenses and they work great in flat light conditions.
Oakley O Frame
This is a pretty solid goggle for being inexpensive. I have the black with the Persimmon lens. They work well for days when the snow is really coming down or at night. That lens will defiantly be too light for sunny days. But for really low light or night, they work great. I haven't had any problems with fogging. They are helmet compatible. They also have silicone lines on the inside of the strap to help keep them in place on your helmet. Typical Oakley high quality.
Nothing spectacular but they get the job done. Quite comfortable and lightweight. Oakley optics are second to none. At first I thought I was going to hate the persimmon lens but it's excellent in most conditions and is really gentle on the eyes.
I am trying to decide between the persimmon...
I am trying to decide between the persimmon lenses and the fire iridium. I will be riding mostly in the evening with low light and into the night. Does anyone have suggestions or experience with these lenses in these conditions?
The fire is one of Oakley's lenses with the lowest light emission, meaning that the least amount of light gets through. Therefore the lens is darker. The persimmon on the other hand is the best all-around lens I have ever used, and if you can get passed the inherent "cool" factor of the mirrored lens, persimmon is undoubtedly the better option for your riding style.
Great backup goggles
For the price you are getting oakley optics so that automatically is a win. I ride with a pair of Shaun Whites on my typical day, but these are ALWAYS in my pack. If its snowing real sticky and wet snow, or if I am all wet and fogged up these get their run, and the perform great for this purpose. They look great, they fit great, the foam is nice and soft, the stock lens is tinted perfectly for those bright days, but not too dark so that they work great down in the trees too. Good all around goggle system
Did it's job
These were great. They did their job and didn't fog or get in my way. Perfect for a novice.
Mt. Bohemia, Michigan
Perfect bluebird Saturday in the U.P. These goggles worked great that day and when it clouded over on Sunday, the same orange lens worked like a champ. Want 'em? Need 'em? Get 'em.
The O-Frame is a pretty decent pair of goggles, that is a great fit in most helmets, vents really well, and pretty cheap. All these qualities make is a great back-up or budget goggle that gets the job done, and doesn't look too shabby either. The picture is of my buddy Jay, who uses them as a rail goggle, so he doesn't bust up his JP Auclair Pro Model Crowbars.
I was impressed with the quality of these goggles. they fit really well and are surprisingly comfortable, also stay fog free for the whole day. I got the black iridium lens and they provide enough sun protection that i didnt have to squint once from the suns reflection on the snow. overall great pair for the price. (I reccomend)
have a pair of these as back-up to A Frames...
and I never regret when I wear them. Great goggle for the money. Polar fleece laminated face foam makes them super nice on the coldest days. I have these with yellow lenses for low light days on the east coast. (Frankly, these are such a good deal I wouldn't recommend changing lenses, just buy two pairs and change goggles, and spend more time on the hill)
i have a really small face, would these...
i have a really small face, would these work for me? or should i buy kids?
These fit some people with small faces, but are meant for medium to large faces. I would say try them, cause they do fit a lot of shapes, and return them if they don't work. Best bet is to go to a shop if you can and try on as many pairs as you can.
The Oakley O frame will probably work. My seven year old prefers this to the XS O Frame. You should also check out Oakley's women's specific goggle...the Stolkholm. It is made for petite faces.
This is a solid pair of goggles. I have used them for a couple of years and they worked nicely.(I have since then upgraded to a pair of Oakley crowbars) They aren't the best Oakley goggles but they are solid starter pair. I would say if you are a just starting to ski/snowboard buy these, then upgrade later. But all in all, a good goggle with superb Oakley lenses.
I bought these goggles to use at night or on cloudy days and they are awesome. Highly recommend these to everyone.
