First Oakley purchase in July 1991 (Blade). Been going pretty strong since then. Thought I was a big Oakley stud until I found this place. Collection doubles in first year, doubles again shortly thereafter - and the addiction is complete. I like Oakley, like a few others here.
Can't say enough great things about o-review and my respect and mutual support for the members here. Some of the greatest 'pay it forwards' are done right here, among friends.

Definitely go for the 80+ TV, Rich! Especially if you are living in the 60ish size right now, the difference in screen size is so awesome. I finally made the move to 4K a couple months back, and I’m this close to buying Saving Private Ryan for the 3rd time.

Welcome! For some reason, the Double Payload bag was first to come to mind, so that must be what you’re looking for!

Had this one on preorder for a full year - and finally received this week. Very happy with the final product, though.

Reminds me when we were putting HJ lenses in Romeo2 frames. Wonder if these flak jacket lenses would also fit the R2?

Hopefully not too limited in distribution. I was feeling a bit Debbie-downer on these between the use of the Eye Jacket name and not sure I care for some of the style features. Was falling back to a "try on before passing judgement' approach, which hopefully isn't too difficult to find and try on.

I would have said that Prizm Tungsten is an iridium lens. But like plenty of prizm iridium lenses, the iridium isn’t all that reflective.

I recalled a number of threads on the Canada knife ban topic from the Spyderco forums. Oak's rant reminded me of the topic, so I went searching those old threads from Spyderco to see if there was any resolution or best practices to successfully get a knife you may want. Unfortunately, it doesn't really seem to have any official solution in place - just the random risk of being seized/refused.
As if the universe wants us to open Amazon packages with our bare hands?!?

Agree with Oak - best of luck in getting your business off the ground, Dan!

Agreed, that Skull/Stanley Cup is incredible!

Ha! Lesson learned is I should have had a beard while it still had a chance to be a uniform/dark color. With all the top-tier beards around here, my little scruff is hardly worth noticing.

Some indirect support for the re-release of the eye jacket.

Wish I had prizm bronze for a fair comparison, but my experience with prizm tungsten has been very positive. I really like the contrast, particularly with brightening up the color green. All said, I would highly recommend the prizm tungsten.

The Pilar is a cool little blade. It's been one of the few non-Spyderco purchases I've made. The BladeHQ exclusive was too cool and I had to grab a 2nd (orange G10, acid stonewash blade).

I recall Bumblebee as being my first Transformer ever. The way his wheel/arms would drop anytime I lifted the car became an endearing trait. I might be tempted if you can tell me Bumblebee's arms are flimsy floppy like the original!

What else ya going to do in 2019? Go for it!

It seems odd the amount of etching on the Wind Jacket lens. The SR initials on the left side of lens appeared weird enough. But then it looks like there is a whole sentence etched on the right side of lens.
Enough disruptive etching reminds me of the tennis STPL eyeshade emerald lens.

Wow, super impressive. I'll take a look through my little packet of photos and pop cards from my first HQ visit (1996 or 1997? - I just remember that Spectrum O-Store had just opened), I remember I also walked away with some business cards and letterhead. I'll see what I might have.

Anything with the hollow point hinge gets high marks from me!

Almost embarrassed to admit, but I think this is my fav of the new releases Oak has shared. Oakley has a pretty strong record of successfully rolling out shield versions; and styles like Antix, OilRig and Turbine Rotor are all great examples. Considering I like the Double Edge just fine, I imagine the Ridgeline will work as well.

The sizeing decisions are being made by the product teams in Milan Italy.
This team in Milan really needs to get a grip with the obese reality of the American male population!

Congrats, the BMX Chrome releases are amazing!

Just arrived today. This model (Spyderco Native 5) has become a favorite of mine, and I finally pulled the trigger on this version. Most of Spyderco’s carbon fiber handles are a laminate over G10, but a handful are full carbon fiber. This is a Fluted Carbon Fiber, linerless handle. Being the first full cf handle I have, the look and feel is pretty amaze-balls.

I enjoy going into the lego store whenever going to the mall (reminiscing about stuff I had when I was a kid), but I have yet to buy a modern lego set. That will change if the below beauty ever gets made. It was custom made but submitted to lego ideas to possibly become a retail set in the future. It got the needed support in a matter of weeks, I'm crossing my fingers it gets made in the future.

Took a couple of years ... but looks like a lot of 'mature' lego fans will be excited!

another opportunity for space's ultimate hunters to be beaten by humans:
Haha, love it! Never really thought about it that way. There are A LOT of movies that could be picked apart with that concept. Except for Independence Day; blind luck has to favor Will Smith and the nutty professor.
