Second post, and you are already trolling?  Of course Oakley is overpriced, but exactly what are you talking about?  Eyewear?  Clothing?

Yep, overpriced for sure.  But in my opinion, the quality is among the best as well.

Overpriced compared to what? I don't think they are overpriced. I think they are priced within the industry standards. That said. I have never had a substandard Oakley product.

I have several pairs of Oakley goggles that I love. My last dozen pair of prescription eyeglasses have been on Oakley frames, which cost less than designer frames from the optician.  I had an Oakley ski jacket that I liked but didn't love (it was heavy due to the magnets inside the storm flap). 

 

While I wish everything that I like to buy was cheaper, I guess I don't mind Oakley's prices enough to not buy their products.

I agree while sunglasses or rx are a lot of money, it's still less than most designer brands

I love their outerwear, specially the pro rider stuff from seth, the price is on par with MH, OR, Patagonia and other top of the line brands... but they don't offer the same customer service/warranty which to me makes their outerwear a little expensive compared to what you get

I would say about 70% of serious amateur cyclists use Oakley eyewear. Most of the pros use them as they get them free. Are they over-priced? Heck they are, but maybe justifiable due to the quality of lens. I don't know. I am planning to get prescription Oakley shades this month but am hesitating because Oakley sport glass prescriptions are very very expensive.
