I had been looking all summer for a good pair of sunglasses that I would be able to wear in a military uniform. I needed the Asian Fit style since normal frames did not quite fit my face properly on my nose. Since there are only about 4 or 5 sunglasses that are military approved and Asian Fit, the Flak Jacket seemed to be the best choice. I also had to get them prescribed by a prescription dealer so my purchase was pretty customized. I have been wearing them for about 3 weeks now I have to say I am pleased with my purchase. The only downside is that they are not good for running conditions. They tend to slide down on my nose when I sweat heavily and bounce.

Finally, I got my Flak XLJ Asian Fit. (The Half Jacket Asian Fit is way to tight for me, and I thought Flak's Asian Fit might be better.) I am told by Oakley's customer service rep that Asian Fit frame is different from the regular one. However, after I tried my Flak XLJ Asian Fit, I feel little difference compared with regular frame(with extra nose pieces). XLJ lens still touch my cheek, while ear stems are not rounded enough to match the shape of my head. Oakley makes great glasses but did a bad job on Asian Fit for both Half Jacket and Flak Jacket.
