Industrial M Frame Black/Grey (11-162)

h2. Industrial M Frame Sunglasses We were answering the performance demands of professional athletes when another group came calling: the industrialized world. It's no secret that Oakley protection technologies have been embraced by soldiers, SWAT team members and others who take their view of the world seriously. From heavy industry to home repair, workers wanted that same level of protection, so we created the Industrial M Frame. Tested and qualified as true safety glasses, this lens/frame combination meets ANSI Z87.1 standards for clarity and impact resistance, as well as the protection criteria of Canada's CSA Z94.3-02 standards. For the high-mass impact test of ANSI Z87.1, a 5-inch metal spike (17.6 ounces - more than a pound of weight) is dropped on the lens from a height of more than four feet. To pass the test, absolutely no frame parts or lens fragments that could contact the eye may be ejected during impact. For high-velocity impact testing, a quarter-inch steel shot is blasted from a pneumatic cannon to hit the lens at 102 mph. Lenses are shot from various angles. To pass the test, no contact between the lens and eye is permitted, and absolutely no frame parts or lens fragments that could contact the eye may be ejected during impact. This level of protection is made possible by proprietary geometries and materials. Oakley's patented technologies maintain optical clarity with lens contours that enhance side protection from sun, wind and impact. Stress-resistant O Matter® frame material is engineered with a critical degree of flexibility to absorb impact. Plutonite® lens material is impact resistant and offers added protection by filtering out 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm. The UV protection is built into the lens material - it is not a surface coating that can wear away - so even our Clear lens offers the full level of UV filtering. Safety isn't limited to impact protection and UV filtering. Sometimes, the most important thing in avoiding hazards is spotting them in the first place, so this eyewear utilizes High Definition Optics® (HDO®). HDO® is a collection of patented technologies that allow the Industrial M Frame to surpass ANSI Z87.1 optical standards including tests for Clarity (by maintaining visual sharpness at greater viewing distances), Refractive Power (by minimizing the affects of a common optical aberration that causes inferior lenses to magnify images like prescription lenses), and Prismatic Power (by minimizing the affects of a common optical aberration that causes inferior lenses to bend light, a weakness that makes objects appear shifted from their true position). All these benefits come in a lightweight design that offers all-day comfort. Oakley's Three-Point Fit holds the lens in precise optical alignment while Unobtainium® frame components increase grip with perspiration. Multiple lens options are available. Choose the Clear lens for very low light and indoor use. The Yellow lens is engineered for very low light, and it boosts color contrast to enhance depth perception. Our Persimmon lens color is formulated for enhanced depth perception in low light. The Grey lens optimizes your ability to discern color differences in medium to bright light. Ultra light stress resistant Oakley O Matter® frame material UV protection of Plutonite® lens that filters out 100% of UVA / UVB / UVC & harmful blue light up to 400nm Three point fi t comfortably hugs the nose and behind the ears Metal icon accents Frame /Lens fully compliant with CSA Z94.3-02 and ANSI Z87.1 standards, including optical clarity, high mass and high velocity impact ANSI Z87.1 markings on frames and lens assure compliance with the ANSI standard Multiple interchangeable Unobtainium ® nose pads and ear socks ensure comfortable, secure fit WARNING: This eyewear is not designed to protect the wearer from all injury in the event of impact with hard objects. Oakley does not recommend the use of tinted lenses for direct viewing of the sun or strong artificial light sources.

Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Optimal clarity, lightweight, easy to replace lens
Cons: no hydrophobic coating
The Industrial M Frame model 11-162 is often mistaken for the M Frame 09-102 which also comes with grey Strike lens, and overall looks similar to the 11-162. This M Frame model has Strike type lens, only difference with the lens on this industrial M Frame is that the lens is longer on the sides for an enhanced eye protection from the side. The lens, being industrial, also doesn't have the words Oakley engraved on the front of the lens unlike the other lenses from the Radar and M Frame series. Of course, you can just get any replacement M Frame lens and have it fixed onto the frame. Replacing lenses is easier than the Radar! This M Frame feels really good on the face, and I use it occasionally for cycling, switching to and fro between my Radar depending on the conditions. The large unobstructed lens of the Strike lens helps in vision and Oakley's HDO really help. The only downside of the M Frame lenses are that they don't have the Hydrophobic coating like the Radars, so they stain more easily, but its just as easy to wipe it clean with the supplied micro fibre bag! The frame feels very durable and its pretty light. Overall, the shades look really cool and I highly recommend this product!

I have had my Industrial M FRAME for over a year. I work on powerlines and use them almost every day for atleast eight hours or more. They have been dropped, kick and beat. They still hold up. They are nothing less then a great buy.

Dark!!
Date:August 4, 2010
Cons: lenses too dark
Very nice glasses but the grey is a lot darker than it appears in the picture. They are more like very dark sunglasses than safety glasses. My fiance works at an auto factory and these glasses are way too dark to wear indoors. Very nice glasses but the description should have said that these weren't suitable for indoors.
