Five-time B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year Kevin VanDam is arguably the best bass angler ever to cast bait or spin tackle. It’s a sport that blends poetry in motion with cunning strategy against a foe with eons of evolution tucked under its fin, and these days, Kevin needs a bigger trophy mantel. He was honored as Outdoor Sportsman of the Year by ESPN in 2002 and received his first ESPY trophy. Since then, Kevin has become the all-time money winner on the Bassmaster Tournament trail, and he has earned berths in 20 consecutive Bassmaster Classics.
Kevin relies on the premium optics of Oakley eyewear, and we’re honoring him with this special edition. The Kevin VanDam Signature Series FLAK JACKET XLJ has a Jet Black frame with Red UNOBTAINIUM components. We laser-etched Kevin’s logo on the TITANIUM IRIDIUM POLARIZED optics. The lens coating is perfect for bright days, and it improves contrast for better depth perception so Kevin can zero-in on his finny foe. With Oakley HDPolarized technology, the lenses stop all the blinding glare that gives bass an unfair advantage. Check out the main web page for more info on FLAK JACKET XLJ, and look for Kevin at the next pro tournament. He’s usually the guy holding the fish that got away from everybody else. Or so they’ll tell you.
MAINTAINS SHARP, CLEAR VISION
FLAK JACKET features Oakley HYDROPHOBIC, a permanent lens coating that prevents rain and sweat from building up on the lens. It also repels skin oils and other contaminates, so the lens is smudge resistant and easy to keep clean. It even eliminates static electricity, so dirt and dust particles won’t cling.
STAYS AHEAD OF THE SUN
FLAK JACKET lets you change lenses in seconds to optimize vision in any sport environment. Multiple lens colors are available, and all lenses feature the unbeatable clarity of Oakley’s HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS (HDO).
OFFERS A SECURE, CUSTOM FIT
Choose the nose pads that give you the best fit – two sizes are included with every frame. Like the stem sleeves, they’re made of UNOBTAINIUM to increase grip with perspiration. Oakley’s Three-Point Fit optimizes comfort and holds the lenses in precise optical alignment for superior clarity.
OPTIMIZES COMFORT, PROTECTION AND CLARITY
FLAK JACKET is made of lightweight O MATTER for all-day comfort. Pure PLUTONITE lens material filters out 100% of all UV, and FLAK JACKET meets ANSI Z87.1 standards for impact protection. The semi-rimless design means there’s no frame rim to block downward view. Optical clarity exceeds all ANSI Z87.1 standards, and XYZ OPTICS extends razor-sharp vision all the way to the lens periphery.
