2006 Model No Longer Available
Oakley Monster Dog Sunglasses - 2006 BCS
Oakley's Monster Dog sunglasses are the largest jacket style sunglass Oakley makes. The Monster Dog offers excellent protection, comfort, and style with a thick O matter frame and true Oakley metal icons. Optical acuity remains full scale with a wide-screen peripheral view, so you'll always be able to see what's coming; and if it's a projectile, don't fret—these lenses can withstand a 12-gauge shotgun blast from 15 yards. Whew! At least your Oakley's will survive.

Chose the custom option through the Oakley website. These are good glasses for someone with a large cranium like me and have larger lens coverage so it looks better on larger faces. I wasn't a huge fan of the bulky wide arms because being so large they look like exactly what they are.....plastic. I'm not bothered by plastic frames it just seems that these almost look like there long lost poor Walmart cousins. These fit quite strange which bothers me a bit. The fit very well above the ear but are shaped a little too aggressively with an inward bend to keep the glasses in place. With the wide arms that I mentioned before this has tendency to leave very large pressure marks across the sides of your face. These glasses do allow you to wear a bluetooth headset over your ear quite comfortably. Now for my pet peeves, first the joints in the glasses squeak when operated. This started after a couple months of use. I notice a few weeks ago that both of my lens' were losing the "Iridium" coating in the center of the lens. These glasses are always stored and cleaned with the magical Oakley bag and I bought an additional hard case to store them in. I was shocked when I went to the website and learned a company like Oakley only warranted there glasses for a year and that didn't include the lens. I have wore Oakleys' for years and love the durability of there frames so just figured they stood behind there product. Buyer Beware!
Not so Fast...

I ordered a pair of the Oakley Monster Dog sunglasses only to notice that the metal icon was missing from the left arm of the glasses. Someone either didn't check to see if the glasses were in shape to be sent, or just sent them anyway. Either way, not all that cool.
Waiting on the replacements, hoping they are in better shape than the first.
Costumer Service guy was nice though.
I am confused about the bridge size of this oakley model. In some descriptions I find it to be 20 in other ones 15 both for the "One size". Could you please specify what the size of the bridge is? Thanks for replying.

I've got a big ol noggin with a big goofy face to accompany it, but these Monster Dogs do the trick to make it all look somewhat normal. Breathability is great during a workout in any condition and they give you great goggle-like protection without being the size of aviators. Biking, hiking, spring skiing... these are a must have.
Word has it they're good for bird hunting with Dick Cheney as well, BOOM.

These are authentic. Backcountry sells quality products, and wouldn't mess around with anything fake.

Fits me perfectlly. Just need to change the lenses into transition lenses

It's snug fit that causes the lenses to fog up. Not good when doing long term activity such as pistol match.

"withstand a shotgun blast from 15 yards"??????? Give me a F'N break! I dropped mine off my head and put a huge scratch in my lens. Yeah they are killer glasses but the lies to sell them are a real turn off. Just state the truth you chodes!
Great for Road Cycling
March 30, 2009
Needed some glasses that would be good for cycling in our windy Colorado spring weather. But I also needed something more affordable than the sweet Water Jacket shades. These fit well and are comfortable on long rides. The nose piece and ear pieces have good cushion and grip. The tint is perfect for sunny Colorado days and they provide enough coverage to keep the headwinds out of my eyes while I'm road biking. They're a little masculine for me but I don't care, they keep my eyes protected while on the bike!

Great glasses.and great coverage while maintaining full visibility. Very strong.
I was flying down the mountain at Keystone, CO. The guy in front turns right, so I turn left. He all of a sudden cuts left to stop and I clipped him and went tumbling. First time my head hits the snow I think "Sh*t, broke my Oaks." Second time my head hits the snow I'm hoping I didn't crack my dome...neither broke...it was a good day.
must have shades!!!!

Got these shades for my boyfriend for his birthday he loved them!!! HE WEARS THEM ALL THE TIME. Not only do they fit great and comfortable while staying in place whether he is outside just hangin out or riding on his Harley...he looks really HOT in them!!!!!! would buy again in a heartbeat!!!
Monster Dogs are awesome shades
April 14, 2008
I too have a large noggin. These are the most comfortable shades I have owned. Many sunglasses will ride on top of your ears and make your ears sore. The arms on the Monster Dog wrap all they way behind my ears and actually hold on to my head with no pressure point above the ears. The amber lenses are perfect as well.
Sunglass salvation for big heads!
June 27, 2007
I now have ordered two pair of Monster Dogs and they fit my huge head perfectly. I am blessed with a size 7 3/4 noggin and believe me these glasses are by far the best fitting, most comfortable glasses I have ever owned. I use these glasses for every thing I do for both work and play. I am a firefighter and these glasses are approved as safety glasses for use in my department as well. Search no more my large headed friends. Monster Dog sunglasses are the perfect fit for your tater!

These sunglasses are great. They fit well and they're lightweight and durable. A pair of Monster Dog's is well worth the money, and I would definitely buy them again.
monster dogs rock
January 3, 2006
The Monster Dogs are really cool. Not only do you get the Oakley quality, but the styling is great, too. They are made for bigger heads and look better in the pattern, like night camo, than the matte black. I am a big believer in Oakleys, and these were not disappointing.
Great for riding!

I just wore these on my 6.000 mile motorcycle trip. Through some sandstorms, hail, and not a scratch on these puppies. I totally recommend these for those who ride, and have a wide face like me.
June 27, 2005
I was a little worried that the size of these sunglasses would be a little big for my head. Not so, these are great and look good on any size face/head. Great gear.

Oakley is the best. These are a showstopper. I love them, they cover my face well and fully wrap to protect from high-speed wind exposure.
I can't believe how fast and efficient the shipping from Backcountry.com is. Excellent service!!!!
Perfect for those w/ bigger noggins.

These are the best fitting sunglasses I've ever owned. The others were too small. BTW, my hat size is 7 1/2.
October 13, 2004
Got the sunglasses wore them twice the third time the emblems on the side of the sunglasses fell off! Not worth the money.
the best glasses
August 10, 2004
This is my fiance's 2nd pair of Monster Dogs. They look great on him because their large size plus the wraparound style blocks out all sun!
dark amber with polarized lens
Overpriced, dumb name, nice fit - very comfortable and light weight. Nice big lens - good eye coverage, they look OK.
I liked them better than any of the other sunglasses I tried - Dragons, Smith, Spy, Von Zipper.
I usually wear Ray Bans for daily use - driving, etc...
primary use: mountain biking
my first pair of oakleys
July 14, 2003
GREAT shades, i got the polarized. big frames,wrap around lenses, and totally flossin' style-i'm totally satisfied.
now if i can keep up w/ them....

Very happy with my MonsterDog Sunglasses Black Iridium. Looks good, fits nicely. Oakley quality...recommended!
June 13, 2003
These are by far the biggest full frame sunglasses Oakley has, and they're pretty dang comfy if you have a big old head. I think these are going to be my new glasses for skiing. They cover every bit of my eye and for that matter half of my face. They are lightweight though and don't put that pressure on the top of my ears you would expect from a pair of sunglasses this big.
I can finally replace my Frogskins
Rebull in my veins

For all you guys out there that need a big pair of shades. These are the ones. They look great and also have all the technology that I have come to expect from Oakley. And they won't break the bank. Check them out you won't be disappointed.

These sunglasses are great for providing sun, wind, and dust protection for guys with big heads. They are large but stay in place while you are doing PT, shooting at the range or running missions downrange.
