Glad they finally got into the wild so we can talk about it - took a while. Flight Jacket looks good. The mix-match colours they used doesn’t do the design justice; looked better in all black or white. Rick would throw his hands up in disgust, but the nicest colourway I’ve seen thus far is the white one because both orbital and earstems match.

Field Jacket, on the other hand, is a head scratcher. Not my thing, but I’m sure it’ll have its followers.

Interesting. I'll probably pick one up, but I don't look forward to the social media opinions.

That's sort of been my buying mentality in recent times. Everyone wants Mad Science until it's released.

And then everyone ignores it until it's discontinued!

Some more Field Jacket in the link below. Not a fan of the model but interesting colours:

http://www.smartottica.com/en/catalogsearch/result/?q=0OO9402

The style has an Advancer™ nosebridge. The Advancer™ positions the frame to block light while opening airflow to combat fogging and overheating. Field Jacket OO9402 have a full rim design which allows for Rx compatability (prescription lenses) and an increased field of view.

I'm really not convinced by the nosepiece, but I'll have to have one pair of Flight Jacket :D

In my opinion Flight Jacket is a must have. The Field Jacket I'm still uncertain about but it looks better in these images. It maybe growing on me.

I think I'll need some hands on experience to warm up to both styles. While I enjoy the Jawbreaker, I find most EV lens designs end up looking a bit wonky on me. Probably an issue of matching the curvature of my head?

The Roka GP-1 has a striking similarity to the Flight Jacket in terms of aesthetics:



Other models in Roka’s lineup look similar as well including ones that look like the EVZero and Flak Jacket (they do have Jamie Oman as an employee, formerly head of R&D at Oakley):
