Most Helpful Customer Reviews
When my old Oakley Spikes were recently stolen, I was hoping to find a comparable replacement. Oakley doesn't have any thick-rimmed metal framed sunglasses at the moment (at least that I could find, in my price range), so I settled on the Fuel Cells. Of course I went into a retail venue to try them first, and when she bent the arm back on itself and it didn't break, safe to say I winced, but was very impressed. One main thing I wanted to upgrade on was comfort, as my prior two pairs of Os did start to hurt my big head after a while and I'd have to take them off & give my head a break. I've worn these for hours at a time and wouldn't even know they're there if not for the purpose they serve. They're very light, and don't pressue on the sides of your head after any amount of time. Also, Oakley seems to have improved their lenses since I bought my Spikes 7 years ago. The tint is a little more brown than gray, but they are also much more clear. It's like the glasses are just...
Well this is the first pair of what I consider "expensive" sunglasses I've bought in a decade or so. Usually I buy the ones less than $20 since I'm prone to break them or scratch the lenses up. Fit great and my girl says look good on me, yah! I did something right she's approved of for once, lol. I'm not a hipster or buy the trending stuff everyone else has but so far I can say I like the style and clarity of the lenses, of course until I scratch them then it's back to the cheaper ones more likely.
The Fuel Cells are the sharpest looking rap around style sunglasses iv'e ever owned, They fit so comfortably and light you don't even know their on your face plus robust in size for bigger heads. The tint is outstanding as well these block out all sunlight with ease and very forgiving in a accident due to the arms being designed to snap off and back on. I had a pair that i lost a few years ago and was determined to get another. I'm going to do everything in my power this time to hold on to these
