I have an ENORMOUS head and most Oakleys are a bit tight on me (except the HiJinx and GasCan to an extent), I was surprised that this fit me rather well when i tried it on. Not tight at all.

I opted not to get the black one because I thought it's too geeky. well, the shape and form IS geeky, but with the brown color it's a bit subdued.

I like it and I'm pretty sure 10 years from now I'll be looking at an old photo with this thing on and say "why the hell was i wearing those dorky glasses?" but for now I'll enjoy it while it's in style.

This frame are great everyday wear for the casual look with jeans. The quality of the frame is very durable and the thickest of the frames hid lens with thick side. The color goes well with pacific islander skin tones.

Overall, one satisfied customer.

I love the color of these and they fit perfectly. They are pretty light and the bridge sits comfortably on my nose all day.

There are a lot of other manufacturers that make glasses like these lately; big bold frames with some sort of metallic accent on the earstem. I guess the Gasket happened because Oakley had said, "Okay, okay, we'll show you how it's done".

Out of all the recent Oakley RX models out there, I like the looks of this one the best. Most other designer glasses with a similar design often times look clunky with no finesse, but the Gasket, although bulky-looking, looks more fluid. I particularly like the bevel along the earstem; it is a very dark grey which I think complements the frame altogether.

The C5 metal strip doesn't have a reflective sheen, instead having a rough, satin finish which has a nice contrast against the polished back frame. Also, the earstem has a core of a thin metal wire, to strenghen the earstem and assist in the heat adjustable system. Very useful for someone like me, since I have found that my head is a bit lopsided.

As has been noted though, the fit leaves a lot to be desired for those of Asian descent; it sits too far up my nose to be comfortable enough, though I can imagine that it would have larger success with other people.

If you like these glasses, by all means, make them your next RXs. Once the Asian Fit versions come out, they will be next on my list for sure.
