Yeah, I have one... it's really nice... I do agree it should have been made climbing tested just for the overkill factor... but I still love it. I made a keyring for it out of Military Grade paracord I got when I was at a military base with a friend of mine. It's great. The bottle opening fuction is pretty nice as well... I wear like a medium size glove(for size reference) and I can pretty much just fit all four fingers in the hole and just man handle a bottlecap... now I'm just looking to bust caps all day long.. lol i feel like terry crews ripping like a dolls head off or something lol... although certainly i am asked all the time is it rated for climing... and yeah then the price... I still love it though...
I love the metalworks collection though... i also have the moneyclip

however... i still love Oakley.... Given the drawings and the concept art i have seen and the airwave displays... and the trophies.... i definitely agree when Jim said that all the right people(minus Hans)are still there and they are still thinking the real oakley way... however i get the sense that LUX is afraid to take a risk. On the other forum, Jim said...
"I was certainly disappointed to hear about the closing of the X Metal line but I have heard there are new flagship models in the works that are killer. These are being done by the best of the best designers at Oakley.
Fear not. Jim"
If Jim says Fear not.... Given his track record for awesomeness... I like to keep reminding myself that Jim is hopeful... so I should be too...

I agree with you Dann... I would say you should almost just take that and send it to luxottica... I was thinking of sending them a letter... There are about four places i'd deem acceptable for Oakleys to be made.... first and formost the USA... and if not... i wouldnt mind Made in the UK... or Made in Germany... or even Made in Italy(sometimes)
