Are they worth the price ?
OH swears by Oakleys. I have never bought from this place, but I kept the link for future use cos someone on here recommended them a while ago...so might be worth a look, there seem to be some good discounts
Nope - not a philistine - more of a spammer. You've plugged that site on all your last 5 posts ?
Oakleys rule. Simples.

Of course the latter, Richard!
I got some of these last week - They aren't mega dark but a bit darker than they look in the pic
Sincere thanks for all the advice and comments,
I have just ordered a pair of straight jackets on the interworld webnet
Looking forward to trying them out, I'll let you know how I get on.
I had my first pair of Oakley Fives in 1998, and replaced them last year when I couldn't see through the lenses due to scratches etc. They did a cracking 12 year service, and stood up to everything that was thrown at them. I'm pretty sure I had the frame replaced FOC at one point too, but it was a long time ago.
I now have a newer pair (Fives 3.0), with the same black iridium lenses. A tad too dark for cycling (11% light transmission), but perfect for running and flying.
Money well spent. Less than 4p per day so far, and they get worn almost daily.
Just checking in, to report that this morning, resplendent in my new shades, I set a new PB at 5k, breaking 22 mins for the first time.
Thank you all once again for your comments and advice.
( Less than £100 a day, so far Chris, but I'm certain that figure will come down considerably )
Good stuff XL. Buy another pair and reduce your PB again!
I obviously have some work to do to remove 20s from my 5k PB.
