Oakley Forager Sunglasses
No holiday would be complete without a solid pair of sunglasses. Too many folks do a last minute dash at the airport and pick up some hideous generic cheap pair that do nothing to protect your eyes from the sun. We suggest picking up a pair of Oakley ‘Forgers’ with their unique Prizm lenses, specifically designed by the Oakley team that offer superior eye protection and colour balance. The ‘Forger’ frame is the ultimate must have for anyone looking for a versatile frame with added performance features, you can take them from lounging on the beach to hitting top speeds flying down mountains on a bike. That and they look damn sexy.
