Our MONSTER DOG™ sunglass was a pit bull of art and science, an Oakley original that hounded the street with aggressive styling. Now we’re unleashing MONSTER PUP™ to roam the urban jungle. We reduced the dimensions but kept the unbeatable clarity of HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS® (HDO®). Earstem fangs of lightweight O MATTER® are shaped for a comfortable fit, and innovations from action sports offer 100% UV filtering and ANSI rated impact protection. True metal icons prove the pedigree is Oakley.

Frame: Rust Oakley Text
Lens: VR28 Black Iridium & RX Black Iridium Polarized

I was itching to get a pair of nice sunglasses, beign tired of the added weight of clip-ons and wanting some protection from the sun.

The frame is a lot darker than what is shown on the website. Once you wear them, they are very dark with faint traces of reddish brown light shining through. The text is mostly invisible once on your head. I prefer this color much more to the Polished Rootbeer which is too brown for my tastes.

The optics are fantastic on both sets of lenses. The VR28 looks like it has better definition, but that might be the contact lenses vs RX lenses difference.

The polarizing effect on the RX Black Iridium is not all that bad. Being used to the effect that you get with good clip-ons, it is a lot more subtle.

The coverage is excellent I have a much larger field of view and no distortion (can be an issue with RX), it's almost if I was not wearing glasses at all. They hold very well on your head, even with lots of sweat.

Seeing the reviews here, I was afraid that the Black Iridium lens might have been too dark but I find it is just right for me. The shape is a lot more subdued than most Oakleys but still have an outstanding design. I like them a lot.

Smaller sibling of the monster dogs, these have a more "streamlined" look, yet it still has a organic look to them. I would say design-wise they are in mix between gascan and monster dogs. If X-metal juliets existed in an O-matter form, I'd say these come close demsnion-wise (lens size very similar).

These frames are very under-rated frames IMO. They have a good wrap, are lightweight, and have that oakley touch to them. I have the matte black frames and switch between ruby iridium and grey lenses. They feel like straight jackets minus the unobtanium nose and earstems.

Wish oakley still made these. I wanted sport wrap sunnies without the unobtanium (Already have M frames and radars, and I know those are rimless-bottom frames)....but while I was deciding between flak jackets and the new straight jacket, I did not like having to repalce unobtanium over time, so I wanted sport sunnies without them. These fit what I wanted!

fits well in my face, but I'm wondering is there a release that has a rust frame with dark grey lens?
