Oakley Sunglasses Giveaway

Comments 308 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The weather is always a hot topic in Vancouver, from rainbows and flash hail storms to general comments on the sunshine or the rain. It’s been a gorgeous week of sunshine in Vancouver and leading up to the long weekend, I think that’s something that locals can definitely get used to.

Oakley Canada would like to help out by providing eyewear for one Miss604 reader who will win one of the four pairs of sunglasses listed below.


Overtime (Women)
1. Strong, graceful and resilient, Overtim(TM) was inspired by those who kick butt with style. The bold square frames with sculpted stems bring out the stylish side of any athlete and with expanded peripheral vision you can enjoy a broader view. Overtime(TM) is available with Oakley authentic prescription lenses. Value: $150

Radar Edge (Women)
2. Oakley Radar Edge gives athletes an extra edge over the competition. The latest addition to the popular toric shield series has a more rounded frame for even better coverage. With a simple silhouette and vibrant color palette (think Shortcake and Mellow Yellow), Oakley Radar Edge is as beautiful as it is hard working. Value: $200

Racing Jacket (Men)
3. With Oakley Switchlock(TM) Technology, Racing Jacket(R) takes all the clarity, convenience and comfort of Oakley Jawbone(TM) and cranks up style with icons you can change whenever the mood strikes you. Includes retaining strap, two sets of lenses (one for bright light and one for low light), and High Definition Optics (HDO). Value: $270

Radarlock (Men)
4. This eyewear lets athletes take full advantage of Oakley’s wide array of performance lenses, thanks to an ingenious invention called Switchlock(TM) Technology that makes lens changing fast and hassle-free. All lenses are optimized with the unrivaled clarity and impact resistance of High Definition Optics (HDO). Value: $270

Here’s how you can enter to win your choice of one of these styles:

  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT to enter to win a pair of #OakleyActive sunglasses from @OakleyCanada & @Miss604 http://ow.ly/aVGYA

I will draw one winner at random from all entries at 10:00am on Monday, May 21, 2012. The winner will receive one set of sunglasses from the selections listed above. Remember to be sun smart! Wear sunscreen and eyewear when you get outside this weekend.

Update The winner is Rod!

  9. MarlineTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 11:37am PDT

    False Creek — being on the water for Dragon Boat practice is a fun place to be to soak up the sun! Having a pair of Oakley’s would help with the reflection too πŸ˜‰

    Ahhhhh…. anywhere can be a good one, but if I have to pick just one, I love it in Kits, passing the volleyball are, near the small parking lot. Beautiful view of the beach from there and usually less crowded.

  28. BuzzzBizzzTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 11:43am PDT

    I love kits beach.
    Its the perfect place to sit, run, play, or catch some gnarly rays. The parking and pretension are a bit of a pain, but it definitely beats the bummin rain πŸ˜‰

  29. Kyle MacDonaldTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 11:44am PDT

  35. Lindsey UlaszonekTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 11:46am PDT

    My favourite place in all of Vancouver to soak up the sun is 100% Spanish Banks – right near the dog beach because my dog loves soaking up the sun too!

  36. SandraTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 11:48am PDT

    I’m sure it will be mentioned a thousand times but nothing beats walking your dog on the seawall, iced latte in hand.

  37. Mandy WongTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 11:49am PDT

  75. Andy LumbTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 12:35pm PDT

    My favorite place to soak up some rays in Vancouver is just west of Sunset Beach at the south end of Nicola St. downtown. I think the small grassy hill there offers the best views of Vancouver in the summer.

  76. TerryTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 12:37pm PDT

    On the patio at Jericho sailing club with a cold beverage. Best city view patio in town.

  77. KodyTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 12:39pm PDT

    English Bay!

  85. Ruth HartnupTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 1:01pm PDT

    Jericho Beach – well, Locarno really, just west of the jetty and the sailing club. Perfect sandy beach for toddlers to play with buckets and spades and paddle in the water while adults sit and relax, and plenty of shade nearby in the grassy park. And the views aren’t too bad either…

  86. hetesh tTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 1:09pm PDT

    cates park! great place to bbq and chill by the water.

  89. JefferyTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 1:26pm PDT

    Every year we try and get piece of grass in the same spot at the Vancouver Folk Fest. We lay out a blanket between to stages and I spend most of the day soaking up the sun and tunes. That’s is my favourite. For the rest of the summer it is by the water teaching my son (and myself) to fish.

  90. AmyTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 1:28pm PDT

    English Bay!

  91. KirstenTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 1:32pm PDT

    It’s a tie between soaking up the sun while I run around False Creek and soaking up the sun on any patio pretty much anywhere in Vancouver with a cold Granville Island beer. (Wait, why choose?! A run THEN a patio!)

  92. belindaTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 1:37pm PDT

    Running on the seawall is my favorite way to enjoy the sunshine in Vancouver!

  152. PHOENIXTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 8:29pm PDT

    When the sun is shining,the best place for me to soak up the sun is anywhere in Vancouver. I love my city and when sun is out,everything comes alive.

  164. VipersbloodTuesday, May 15th, 2012 — 10:00pm PDT

    There are a few nice beaches in the Lower Mainland, but I really like my back yard. I can let the drinks flow without the worry of driving after and I don’t have to fight any large crowds. Win win situation! ~_^

    UBC! during the summer time, UBC is best place to soak up the sun! OF course, sunscreen and hat and sunglasses are MUST while staying outside for long period of time πŸ™‚ The green trees waving in a row when the cool breeze blow the leaves back and forth.. and yet the warmth of sunlight keeps you warm πŸ™‚ It is best place to soak up the sun !!!!! Also, most of students are away on summer vacation so the quietness and peaceful scenery is perfect way to enjoy the summer weather in Vancouver ! Why is summer only 2-3 months in Vancouver :(:(:(
