The Good

  • Revolutionary Prizm lens adjusts to all light conditions
  • Oversize frame fits smaller faces comfortably
  • Great field of view

The Bad

  • Oversize frame profile stands 2.5 cm off the forehead
  • High price for a single-lens solution
THE VERDICT

Inspired by the helmet visors of fighter pilots, Oakley’s Flight Deck goggles are not only functional but also really good looking. What wins Best In Class for this goggle is the Prizm lens (offered on many Oakley frames and tested here in the black iridium color). This lens provides great definition in every light condition. The oversized goggle frame fits smaller faces and still provides an exceptional field of view. This is a high-price goggle for only a single-lens, but with the Prizm it is worth every penny. 

FULL REVIEW

Venting/Fogging
Oakley’s F3 moisture-absorbing coating seemed to do the trick, as we experienced no fogging during testing. 

Field of View
This goggle has the largest (and most exceptional) field of view of any goggle we tested this year.

Lens Quality & Options
The Prizm lens offers amazing definition and versatility. The Flight Deck also comes with a standard (non-Prizm) lens for a bit less money.

Frame and Construction
While the oversized frame is a bit bulky and on the heavier side, it is solid and reliable. 

Fit
The Flight Deck is a great fit for a variety of face shapes. The face foam is cushy, comfy, and moisture-wicking.
