I am just very very obsessive about a chosen few particular styles of a single brand of eyewear. Is the court-appointed psychiatrist really necessary?

These dead links on a lot of these old threads tend to get me a bit nostalgic. They remind me of what I was up to back whenever it was first posted. It always triggers a memory or two about all the goofy crap I was getting into in the good ol days of the internetz.

Dead links remind me the accepted wisdom of "if you post it on the internet, it will last forever" just isn't true.

Anyone know of what made Code blue ... well, Code Blue? Asking specifically about the Code Blue Minute vs. the Dark Blue Minute. I noticed that Code Blue tends to get thrown around a lot as a frame color probably cuz it kinda sounds cool, but not everything was Code Blue, right? Was the difference just a generational thing like Jet Black vs Polished Black, or was there an actual difference in the texture and/or shade?

In terms of what is available now .... since you said Triggerman works the best for you so far, I would suggest giving Drop Point a try; a bit smaller than the Double edge but about as square and should provide good coverage.

Another good goggle-like face hugger is the Straightlink. It has thick earstems but they are pretty long and give a good wrap around the cranium. Plus they are super light and flexible.

The ideal riding model was supposed to be the short lived Split Jacket, of which the Wind Jacket 1.0 was a goggle-type variant with a wind gasket. It wasn't marketed all that well and so it didn't stay around very long. But it has gained a kind of cult following so you can still find second hand Splits for a decent price.

Actually, this is kind of a tuff one since you have to take the helmet into account. Some frames like the Ballistic M Frame 3.0, Speed Jacket, Shocktube, and Jawbreaker have deliberately thinner earstems to account for headgear pressing against you. I'd check out a few models like those and see how they sit.

Love the update, Dann. My favorite is the 1-Eye-Con, and the camo lens is a great touch!

Hopefully this little crossover sinks fast and then everyone can pretend it didn't happen.

Ah, I saw that one on eBay a couple times. I was wondering what was up with that colorway since it didn't launch with the rest.

I gotta give you credit one more time. Maybe some of you have, but I just don't see custom Zero's just because the thing is all lens. So kudos again to Wavecloud for the custom lens cutting.

Not sure if Nuke Venom has been talked about yet, but they sure got my attention.

https://www.nukeoptics.com/#

I'm not sure if what I am seeing here is 100% legit and ready to go, especially since the company seems to have just launched as an IRL brand after a good couple of years of constant crowdsourcing and some struggling to get established. Still, they definitely are aiming high with their designs.

I haven't jumped on the Funko train yet, but I have been meaning to grab a Xenomorph & Ripley figures. Just have been kinda lazy and haven't got around to it yet. But if I did, those would be the ones.

However, most of the people I know (friends, family, co-workers) who are into comics and/or movies in a big way all seem to have caught the Pop bug something fierce! I totally understand it, so i'm not judging them at all; it's just a bit perplexing how I haven't caught the bug yet.

Maybe all it takes is just one .....

I can probably help with some of this ...

A) Database info is sourced by member input, using published info from Oakley (like the fliers, catalogs, and leaflets) or the box label or tag that comes with the product. Occasionally input errors are made, and they are corrected when encountered (they can be edited afterward). Usually a memeber with any doubt about product info asks for help in a thread or PM before adding the info. The resulting consensus is then generally what makes it into the database. So if you see a database error, the best thing to do is make light of it, so it can either be confirmed or changed.

B) That 24K lens entry you found is one of a few lens entries that probably still needs to be adjusted. Several database entries have small things about them that still need fixing. But you are correct, that particular lens uses the Bronze lens base, just like the Gold, Tungsten, and Titanium lenses.

C) Inconsistent Oakley info is an old story around here. It's something we are generally used to and just have to roll with it, or risk getting hung up on the inconsequential. This goes double with the VLT numbers for their lenses. There are a few lens bases and Iridiums that tend to be pretty consistent, but many have published VLTs with such variation to them that you really aren't able to get a consistent set of numbers that always plug into each variation of that lens or coating.

I personally gig Oakley for this, basically taking the time to invent their own in-house systems, methods, and/or terminology for their products, only to then turn around and disregard them whenever it is seemingly convenient or expedient.

Ultimately tho, they are just a company and companies tend to make mistakes. It doesn't detract from the overall product or experience - in fact, I think it adds a little bit more fun to the hobby by finding and trying to solve these little inconsistencies.

First retail listing i've seen for them. They show six colorways, but not much in the way of detail:
