    It is what Oakley calls their rubber. The ear socks and rubber nose pieces are "unobtanium".

    It's also the mineral being mined in the movie Avatar

    Would that be the direct opposite to the Oakley Lenses (hydrophobic)

    Just a little confused, Oakley uses hydrophilic rubbers but uses hydrophobic lenses. The rubbers absorb moisture but the lenses repel them. Hmmmmmm

    it makes sense. you wouldn't want moisture hanging out around the rubbers. then they'd be slipping everywhere. therefor absorbing it would be best.
    and you wouldnt want your lenses attracting water, or oils, they wouldnt be clear, they've be covered in gunk.
    so repelling would be the smartest idea.
