Lighter, Stronger, Better...
Much like Oakley, Daniel Defense was founded upon humble beginnings. A lifelong firearm enthusiast, Marty Daniel founded Daniel Defense at the turn of the 21st century, dedicating his vision to create concepts and designs that would improve the modern assault rifle. A partnership forged in the pursuit of ‘science wrapped in art,’ the Daniel Defense collection combines the unique and proprietary Cerakote colors of MIL SPEC +, and Tornado, along with industrial rail accents with classic Oakley styles.
Two lenses are cut from the curve of a single lens shield, then mounted in the frame to maintain the original, continuous contour. Lightweight O MATTER® frame material offers premium comfort. Peripheral vision is maximized by XYZ OPTICS®, an innovation that maintains visual clarity at all angles of view. Impact protection meets ANSI Z87.1 standards, and the Three-Point Fit retains the lenses in precise optical alignment. True metal icons sign this Oakley original.
