Very nice. Looks a little different than the website pictures though - Dann

Always.
That seem to be a constant.
I wouldn't order anything from them before seeing real life pictures.

I went running with them and felt the stems sliding on my head.
Also, there are some sharp edges on the frame, probably where front and back molds meet.
Pretty disappointing.
Luckily, they look good. Otherwise, that would have been an immediate return.

I wrote yesterday to the shop asking for a return :-( - cmunozh


What finally changed your mind ?

Love it.
I've been looking for a non cammo one of this model for some time.
Still not decided on what colour to get.

A pair of Hydra for cheap.
But you get what you pay for...
Frame is not so great, with poor finish.

I ll see mine this week. I ordered the Tenis ball.

I hope you don't have set your expectations too high :)
They look very nice, but finish is below Oakley standard... maybe below gaz station sunglasses - BiGCoB



Well, they arrived yesterday, and well... I was expecting a more sporty stuff. I miss some rubber at the stems and as I thought (despite some mates claim you can use the Jawbone rubbers), the lens is too "flat" despite the frame isnt...

... I will use them on the bike at some point, I hope I don't see flying hydras like I did with flying Sutros (the standard, not the S version that I like a lot) while going downhill or mountain pass.

Got inspired by a great IG account who post amazing portraits of techwear with Oakleys on. Tried it but was not convinced with how it went, so I just ended up in a sleevless puffy jacket for a simpler portrait.



Go check that IG account. He posts amazing stuff.

That's where it is very important to get real pictures rather than computer generated ones.

The color of this yellow is definitely not what I expected it to be.

I really like how they tuned the frame slightly, keeping the original form, but adding a few nice touches.

They cost me €319. Are they worth it?
- berzosa120

They're worth what you're paying for.
For me, that's another pair that should be in the 150-170 range, with 50 extra for the special box and plate.

An engineer in that field could probably breakdown the costs, but I'd assume they do a 10x profit, at least.
Is the box aluminium or plastic ?

if they release other colorways in standard package for half the price, I might think about it.
I really like this matte smog frame, though.

It reminds me of the Frogskins Moto collection

Jan 15, 2024 6:43 PM
I like it to be honest.
I'd go with the Pleasure colorway

I've been using this for some time.
Forget the old frame they don't have anything :)

eBay. I wanted to bid on the M-Exp Pleasure. Ebay wouldn't let me.
Should have contacted you earlier. :) - BiGCoB



Shit my bad dude I didn’t know anyone couldn’t bid. - OakleyGarth

I'll be ready for next time :)

In the intro scene of Obliterated s01e01, 2 of the main characters wear Oakleys. Hydra and Sutro.

Looks cool. Surprised there is no Atomic 13 rubber on the pair. - Oak

Especially considering the price up compared to Gigawatt.
OK, Cerakot paint can explain the price up, but still...
