Here is the only piece available this year for our Independence Day 4th Of July. In typical fashion, this one is stars and stripes, but a bit different. Blue stars on a white background rather than the inversion, and some torn stripes. There are 13 red, however I didn't go specific on stars and what not. It glows in Ultra White on all white surfaces and Ultra Blue on the icons and was finished off with Ice lenses this time around. It is being sold as a complete set with matching bag, hard case and cleaning kit. Be the ONLY PERSON TO HAVE IT.
I only recently had the privilege of experiencing the +Red via a fortuitous vault store pickup of the Dark Grey Split Jacket. Now that I hold a pair on my hand I can concur with many other reviews and comments about the +Red Iridium. The overall aesthetics of the Iridium hue are captivating. As if it is made of a blue bottom layer with a red layer on top, the hues shift from red to blue and then to purple and back again, all in a single motion. It was quite hypnotic for the first day or so.
This lens is, of course built on the grey Plutonite lens so it is a "sun" lens and can be worn in even bright light. The polarization gives the lenses and extra layer of protection and another excuse to wear them out anytime. The effect on vision is quite neutral and no noticeable difference between these and the Grey Polarized. Looking from the outside, the wearers eyes are slightly visible in all but direct bright light as with most polarized lenses. This does not at all take away from their wearability or impressiveness, however. I believe the wearers eyes will be the last thing to be noticed if wearing a pair of these.
I have never seen +Red Iridium Polarized in person as it is not widely available on many frames; just the non-polarized set. And while I certainly find the regular +Red Iridium to be impressive, I am very glad I was able to get the Polarized version. Truly an incredible lens and definitely a must-have should the opportunity present itself. -skull.jacket
This is one of the most extreme pairs in the X-Metal line up. Easily recognizable and unmistakably Oakley. These fit a wide variety of face shapes, and I love the extreme look delivered by these frames.
They are a bit on the small side, so larger noggins be ware. Also, they could use some smaller temple shocks to help accommodate a larger variety of faces and head shapes. I think the size 15 temple shocks would go a long way in helping with fit. My only complaint is that I can't wear them all day because they fit so tight.
Other than that, an absolutely amazing frame. -supersharp
This was the final X-Metal design, and a winner on all counts. It was the only X-Metal to use Torx screws instead of the "rivets" on the nose bridge, the only square shaped X-Metal, and the only one with the unique style of open ear stems. This style fits many faces quite well, and it had quite a short production run so it will be forever a keeper. This is my favorite frame next to the one that started it all, the Romeo. I guess you could say this is the Omega of the original X-Metal line. -supersharp
