I just wanted to share something I discovered recently for all those government employees and public service personnel. Long story short Oakley provides a discount to all government employees. To be clear these aren't knock off copies like you find on a street corner, these are genuine Oakley products. Here's the description of their program straight for their website www.usstandardissue.com
So what does this mean for you? If you're active duty military, reserve, a government employee (including local Police, Fire, EMS) or a military/government retiree then you qualify for the program. Oakley has a special line of SI (Standard Issue) glasses available at discount. All of these frames are flat black with subdued logos and tend to cost approx. half of their retail price. The SI line does not include all available frames and lenses, but there's still a pretty comprehensive list of products to purchase, including regular and prescription sunglass, lenses, goggles, gloves, boots, backpacks, etc. I recently registered for this program (as a Paramedic) and just ordered my first set of sunglasses for less than half their retail price.Oakley takes great pride in offering the highest quality products at a direct rate for military and government personnel. We have developed a strong program over the past 20 years and we want to ensure that the integrity of the program is held high.
Oakley understands the extreme demands and environments our government customers will encounter so Oakley has made an entire line dedicated to meet these needs.
Oakley is proud to deliver a product of superb comfort, functionality and cutting edge technology to our government customers.
