- Oakley Shades, do they all come with the hardshell case or just the soft cover?
Just bought a pair of shades for riding from one of the local Opticians and whilst there he started to hand them to me in a soft case, the cloth case.. Now I pulled him up on this stating my last Radarlocks came with a hardshell and spare nose pieces, but he just wanted to hand the glasses over in a cloth case stating they all come like this, he got a bit shirty TBH. So I gave him the option, full refund or the hardshell and spare nose pieces..

My flakjackets came in a hard case. My Minutes, Five squared, Crosshairs and another pair I can’t remember the name of didn’t.
My prescription specs came in proper hard glasses cases.
My wife has had 2 pairs that came in hard case one that came in a bag and the latest came in a softer zip up case.Posted 4 years agohonourablegeorgeMember
My Jawbones (now Racing Jackets) had a hard case with the extra lenses and nosepieces, and a wee bottle of antifog fluid included.
Casual ones I’ve bought int he past came in a box with just the cloth case.
I’d expect Radarlocks to come with same – see below, the case is picturedPosted 4 years agotoppers3933Member
As others have said some do some don’t. I was told a couple of years ago that it can often depend on the exchange rate. They throw in a hard case in an attempt to prop up uk sales instead of foreign imports. It was a guy from oakley who told me that.
I’ve had loads of pairs of casual ones and they’ve never come with a hard case. I had some frames a good few years ago that came with a hard case. The pair i got my wife a few years ago came with a soft and a hard case.
Part of me hopes he gave you your money back and wished you an enjoyable onward day.
if you look on the oakley uk website it should tell you what accessories should be included.Posted 4 years agolungeSubscriber
My “sports” Oakley’s, M-Frames, Flak Jackets and Jaw Bones all came with clamshell hard cases. My more fashion orientated glasses, Fives, Plaintiffs, Square Wires and Jupiter’s all came without. These are all from either Eyewear Outlet, Oakley direct or Sunglass Hut. So I guess it depends on the model.Posted 4 years agosatchm00Member
My racing jacket Oakleys came in a case and with a soft pouch, spare nose clips.

The only pair of ‘Oakley’ glasses I have that came with a hard case were some ebay knock off Jawbones (which came with an assortment of lenses).
All other genuine Oakleys I have ever bought (around 10 pairs, all from the ‘fashion’ side) have just had a bag.
FWIW my riding glasses are Smith ones with interchangable lenses, again they came in a hard case with slots for the lenses. I’d hazard a guess that generally a premium pair of glasses with interchangable lenses will come with an appropriate storage case, otherwise don’t bet on it.Posted 4 years ago
Well it seems mine should have come with a case. Whilst I posted that image up there ^^ those are the wrong shades it seems. I’m not being arsey here but I did a little check and the Oakley store in Town confirmed my shades should come with a hard shell case, niiiiice. So I bought some clear lenses for them whilst I was there.
It’s odd for me to get miffed about such things, but the salesman inferred he was doing me a favour by handing me the hard case and being sniffy about it too.
Well there is now no need, I shall pop into Town to buy my next pair (if/when I need them)
TBH, they are bloody lovely things… 8)
To those that would/offered a refund.. I can send you some bank details if you like.. 😛Posted 4 years ago
