You know what, I'm very much iniclned to agree.
2001 promotional. Maybe very valuable one day so keep yours. I got mine in a metal frame. May not be the best looking poster but Ebay showcase it for around $40
I have the one from 2004 with lance climbing up L`Alpe d`Huez. man, was that a great stage!
Great poster with a bit too much graphics. But boy does that poster just wanna make you go out and *push pedals*
A bit on the large side but i`m saving mine to be hung on the wall in my future appartment where i`ll have a bike-mechanic/beerdrinking/boysroom.
ive got every lance poster from 1999-2005 and i think the best poster by far is the 2005 one
the poster is in a much higher qualiyt paper.. it seems metalic in a way..
the poster has images from each of the 6 oakley posters of lance armstrong made into a collage for the 2005 poster.
thus 2005 poster is liek a summary poster of all oakley lance posters.
the 1999 and 2000 posters are the most valuable keep them for sure!
Very nice luggage. It is very big and light. I'm not sure I would bring this on an airplane though. You would definitely need to check it in and I wouldn't trust that airport employees in taking care of it. This bag is not durable to resist the harshness of checking it in.
Not to bad of a bag. The front mini bag was useless and added weight to the bag. The zippers for the bag were a bad choice and should have been heavy duty zippers.
I used the bag for 2.5 years a flew a lot with the bag all over the US. the stucture was sound and the heavy duty wheels were a big plus along with the skid plates.
This luggage is huge. I really like this AP addition. There is a lot of storage on here. The pouch that attaches to the front of it is great because it holds a good amount of stuff but you can leave it attached so that it is still considered one piece of luggage which helps when you fly. The one thing I'm afraid of is checking this in. I don't want anything to harm it.
The Large AP Rolingbag is heavy duty built. As soon as you pick it up you can feel it's gonna follow you anywhere your travels bring you. Until you check in your luggage, but more about that later.
The front and back compartment are zipped together with a heavy duty zipper. The front compartment is accessible from the outsite or when you unzip and open up the rolingback like a book. When open, you have access to two large compartments, that are closed with a fishnet-like cover. Both compartments are large enough to pack your stuff for a three week holiday.
That brings me to the only negative I can come up with: only when checking in your luggage, you'll come to find out you've packed more than 20 Kilos. This ofcourse because the AP Rolingbag is much heavier than regular suitcases. On the otherhand; there's plenty of black and grey suitcases at the airport anyway!
had mine now 3 years with 4-5 UK to Gulf trips (multistop) plus trips to uk
handles airport baggage abuse with ease and only has a small rip in biard backed canvas
best luggage i've ever used
detachable laptop ccase gets used in downtimes when not travelling also
Decent hard case with good protection. Fake "carbon fiber" covering actually has a nice, premium feel while the inside has FULL plush coverage. It can roll on flat surfaces, but its manageable. Name plate is cheap looking plastic but overall the case looks sleek. Good, fairly cheap option for those with large shades like my oil rigs-It's larger than the large soft vault for reference.
This case offers great protection for larger or taller frames. The print looks good wrapped around the pill.
This bag is HUGE. It is perfect if you want to go traveling. You can just chuck in all your stuff and still have room left over. Okay, its not unbelievably massive, but its a tiny bit bigger than I need for a gym bag (which is what I use it for mainly). When I go traveling overseas I think this bag will be indispensable.
It has the main (large) compartment and on the inside it has a little mesh bag stitched attached to the inside which has a zip on it. There are two zip pockets on either side on the outside of the bag. These are good for anything, loose change, water bottles, timetables. It has two carry handles which you can button together and an adjustable shoulder strap. On either end there are two big pockets with zips. One pocket has a yellow laser etched plastic icon and the other pocket has nothing. The pocket with no icon on it is to store your shoes. You can put your dirt ass shoes in here and turn the pocket INSIDE OUT to clean it. Pretty cool, but my mum said "why don't you just put your shoes in a plastic bag?" and she had a point.
The problem with this bag is when it isn't full and you only have a few things in there, it doesn't look impressive. It looks flat and saggy. This isn't a major problem, that just because at the moment I use it for the gym and only have a few clothes in there and such. This bag is perfect for traveling or going on any holidays or when you need to pack shit into a big bag.
The thing is, I found the Small duffel to be too small and the Large Duffel to be too large. Oakley should release a Medium Duffel and it'll be perfect.
Perfect Bag for travelling or going to the gym. The design is uniquely Oakley. I particularly love the Shoe Pocket feature.
When I travel, I can stash all my stuff in it, and have space for new ones I buy along the way. I keep mine in the car, containing a change of clothes and shoes for On-the-go trips, overnight stays, a quick dinner date, or just messy accidents.
5 Stars for this Oakley Classic!!
A perfect bag for "carry-on" sized trips. You can fit everything in this bag, and have enough side/seperate pockets to keep items safe and sound. Very comfortable shoulder strap, and great expandability options and tie-down strap.
Cool duffel that draws looks every time i use it. enough compartments for your gear. doesn't look too good if its only half filled. metal icons were a classy touch
The one I purchased from the website does not look like the one depicted here. Please see my collection for a pic.
This bag is great. I have used this bag in my various travels and I have not had any complaints, if I don't want to carry to much clothing. However, I feel that if this bag were any larger it would become uncomfortable.
I use this bag all the time when I travel, using it as a carry on (fits nicely in overhead compartments), or in the truck of my car without trouble. It is very durable as I have had no problems yet.
The looks is uniquely Oakley and its performance is exceptional for my needs.
It is light weight, (1/3 the SI computer bag). The outer surface contains 2 elongated veclro-strapped pockets, an ID tag pocket (metal and included..very nice!) and a velcro-closed pocket. There are handles on the width surfaces. The flap fastens via 2 plastic clips, and contains a webbed-zippered pocket, can be used for water bottles etc, and a button pocket that can contain cellphone etc. The underside of the flap contains another 2 pockets superimposed on top of eachother.
The inner compartment is nicely padded and devoid of pockets
This is the perfect case for any oakley goggle. It is hard all over so it can survive even a big wipeout when your skiing or snowboarding.
Amazing holds either the A frame and Wisdom. Nice hardcase, I agree with LEX as I wipedout so many times and this case survived
A must-have for goggles. Perfect for storage and protection
Perfect for my big ol' Wisdoms. Like all the other soft shell cases you can feel confident throwing it into your bag and forgetting about it, and for when you wind up on you butt/back after wiping out.
Nice to have a case which is a lot narrower than the rest of the soft vaults, fits into pockets better although it is longer than a standard small vault. I've found that E-wire 1.0 and 2.1, Square wire 2.0 and 30mm will all fit into this case nicely but A-wires won't quite.
Sadly this case no longer appears on the Oakley website. Looks like it has been withdrawn from the market.
I particularly like the half shell design. It's durable and protected my eyewear for years. The O icon scratches though, so try not to keep it in your pocket along with keys or some coins. I finally retired it after 3 years. All in all, the Large Soft Vault served me well.
I prefer these bullet-shaped vaults to the rectangular vaults. They are lighter and have rounded edges, so they are easier to carry around, and you will not pinch your hand along the hinge. This vault will hold most medium/large glasses (basically everything except X-Metals and M-Frames). Penny will fit since it is much smaller than the other X-Metals when folded. I use mine to hold one of my Penny's. Most retailers do not carry these for some reason. It took me a while to find them.
I picked up on of these. They are $10-20 cheaper than the box variants. I'm partial to the boxy vaults, but these work just as well and are the same price as the soft vaults. The padding isn't as supporting as the foam in the other vaults, this just sort of has a velvet lining, and the glasses can roll around inside. I recommend always keeping your glasses in the microbag, whereas the boxy vaults you could get away without.
Gets a five for function alone, but the value confirms it. Holds my eyewear no problem at all. I haven't used the box vaults but I don't bother with using the microbag inside of this one.
Still surprised that it doesn't cost any more than the ballistic vaults. Buy the metal ones now before Oakley increases the price. Still, here in Canada it'll cost you $40 +tax which is a lot for a sunglass case - if you need an Oakley one though, this is the best way to go (get the right size!).
These are really light for being metal. I like to carry my half jackets in them. The cool thing about these is you can fit them in your bag really well because of the circular design.
I still prefer the zipper Soft Vaults. These things were lethal when one was offered to me, the case 'snaps' shut so you'd better watch your fingers. Is a nice looking case but the padding is a tad thin even though it does the job.
A great way to protect your most precious Oakleys. I got mine for $20!
Too bad they don't make round metal vaults for X Metal. The X Metal Vault is too bulky to carry around.
Very cool looking case and strong to, not as strong as the normal oakley Vault but stronger than a large soft vault.
it also makes a nice change if all you have are the boring black vaults.
I keep my Polished aluminium twentys in there which I think goes very well together.
A great case, holds 67% of my oakleys (not simultaneously) - it got a bit dented up in my bag, and the hinge is a little misaligned, but i think I can fix it. And regardless, it did its job saving the oakleys within.
it´s nice but if you compare it with the Vault it´s not such a safe case. thats the minus on these....
the positiv is the weight and that this version is cheaper than the original square vault.
cool like all metal cases and easy to handle....
it´s a question of the "religion" which one it´s better or nicer or what ever!
Our precious eye protection need protection themselves inside the perilous world of a backpack. The large Vault keeps your optics safe from breakage and scratches even if the bag gets trampled on by an angry mob thanks to it's solid aluminum construction yet its light enough not to weigh you down. Snapping hinges is more convenient than zippers and tight enough not to open accidentally. But beyond its practical merits lay elegant styling that's unmistakably Oakley. The riveted, unpolished steel capsule makes it look more like a gas tank or an explosive devise if not for the embossed icon logo. The only hitch to the design is that it could look suspicious in security x-rays so keep it in carry-on to prevent unnecessary delays.
The Clam shell design is very practical for every day use. Suits most larger frames. Priced really well in comparison to the x-metal Vault. Recommended even if only for display.
Awesome upgrade to the case world from HDO floatable and ballistic cases. Great design, and functionality. It's just so cool I give it the full 5 star rating.
My only complaint would be that I swear I get some funky odor emitting from my vault. Yuk!
Bought these for my Juliets but they don't fit - so they are a great case for my Splice...love the design! very Oakley
First thing I noticed when I got this was the heft. The second thing was the weight of the spring in the hinge. If you snap these shut make sure your fingers aren't anywhere near them since they'll surely take the tips off. Big enough to hold the larger frame and yet the shape makes them easy to carry around in my laptop bag. Considering they cost the same as soft vaults, an amazing value.
Nice addition to the collection! Too bad it doens't fit all glasses. For X-metals you still have to use the X-metal Vaults. And those are really huge! But for evrey other model this is just fine.
My least favorite metal vault, just for the fact that the padding does not imprison the glasses like the square metal vaults one do.
Still looks cool and will do the job, less bulky and heavy then the square ones.
It looks cool and does it's job. I wish it has more padding inside. It does roll around a lot while driving but I like it anyway.
These serve that same purpose as the soft vaults but just look better. They are light weight, very strong and will die trying to protect your shades. Could have a bit more padding inside and watch your fingers when closing as it snaps shut.......ouch!
Finally got this online, since my local O-store didn't have them and didn't seem like they'd get one for me. Does its job, easy to get into a backpack (attracts stares if stuck inside the webbing water bottle pouches on the sides, though). But I agree, a couple times when traveling, security pays special attention to it. I doubt I'd use it to make a bomb, though. Too cool to blow up just like that...
Bear Oak -
I own this Lrg. Metal, it protects my E Wire 2.0 perfectly with cleaner bag. Great item for sure!
I like it. For the price of the soft vault, you get more protection. With that said, I have two of them, and they haven't left my display case. I use the soft vaults. I prefer a zipper to clicking shut.
Damn good case but a word of warning:
PIT BOSS DO NOT FIT!!!!!
Despite Oakley claiming that they do when i emailed them....
You can just about cram 'em in back to front and upside down but the case still wont snap shut
Fantastic bomb proof cases. DO NOT USE FOR X-METALS. They are too wide and although you may be able to squeeze them in, use the soft cases, or splash out and spend USD$200+ to buy the X metal metal vault case. For everything else, these are perfect.
A word of warning. Be careful when shutting the case. Make sure that no part of your sunglasses is sticking out of the case. Also, you have to be careful when putting the sunglasses in. Lead with the arms first. It's possible to accidentally scratch your lenses on the front ridge of the case (which is not protected by felt).
I have the small AP roller which has been great for me on the business trips that I go on for a couple days at a time. However, for my recent trip to France, I needed something bigger and my current suitcase needed to be retired. I was attracted to this bag for two reasons. One, capacity. This bag can hold a lot. I was able to pack clothes for a two week trip and could have put a few more things in there if needed. The second was weight. Weight is a big issue with airlines now and especially when traveling overseas. A hard case is nice to protect things, but when combined with a roller feature, the bag itself can really eat into your weight allowance. With all of my clothes and a little room to spare, I was under Delta/Air France's weight limit of 51 lbs at 48. Not much, but enough. A standard full size suitcase wouldn't have been able to hold as much and would have definitely been overweight if I had tried to fill to the max. I was over the limit with my older bag during my last trip to Europe a couple of year ago. With the charge of up to $100 each way, I was happy with my choice.
It's contructed very well using heavy canvas light material and big strong zippers. The interior is really just two main compartments that have a light mesh material that zips up to keep your stuff in place when you close it. The mesh material has some zippered pockets that you could use to hold some light things although I didn't need to use them. The exterior pocket could be useful to hold something like a jacket that you might need easy access to on a road trip. I wouldn't use it though for flying. While the curved zipper makes for cool styling, it does not make for a quick closure with the zipper sometimes hanging up as you try to get it around the bend.
I liked the attached laptop case and found it useful for the trip. I am not quite sure why the Oakley website gives it the same description as the case that comes with the small rolling duffel. Having seen both in person at the O store, they are different cases. This case is basically a laptop case with one main compartement. There is a divider to stow your laptop in the back half of the case and the front half also has a soft pocket to hold general items. You won't find any organizational pockets so if you are looking for that, you will be dissapointed. Since I was only using it to hold my DVD player, the lack of pocket didn't really bother me. It will fit a full size laptop though, I tried. The outer pocket will hold miscellanous paperwork but won't fit a magazine really. You need to use the front half of the main compartment for that. I carried it on board with my AP pack and it held my DVD player, an MP3 player and a book for the trip. My AP Pack was stowed up top and I could keep the case conveniently located in front of me without killing my legroom. The water bottle holder is convenient while you are traveling. Too bad it doesn't detach. It would be nice to use on on my AP Sandbag for business trips. The ticket holder/phone holder is very convenient as well. It's a nice that you can attach the case back onto the bag. That way once I picked up the duffel in baggage claim, I attached the case, and I was a lot less encumbered walking through the terminal with the duffel in one hand and the AP Pack on my shoulders. A laptop case swinging from my shoulder would have been a bit much. It is attached by 6 velcro straps so while you can detach the case quickly, putting in back on takes more time.
Definitely a nice bag if you are going on a long trip or need a bag with a lot of space. Just keep in mind how tall it is. It is taller than the standard suitcase so you may have a problem trying to get it in some car trunks or luggage spaces on a train. If you are thinking about carrying something fragile inside, either pack clothes around it or think about hand carrying the item. The bag is soft except for the bottom near the wheels. Baggage handlers are usually a true test of a bags durability. With the exception of a small tear to one of the guards on the bottom of the bag, it was no worse for wear. Definitely recommend it.
I picked this Large Rolling AP duffle up at 1/2 cost when our new Vault opened. I got to test it out only weeks later on the week trip to Vegas. Not only did it hold EVERYTHING of mine, but I had other people's stuff inside as well. It's extremely light, which meant I could pack it full of crap and still be under the 50 lbs. weight limit...if only by 2 lbs. Still, it performed better than my old luggage, and with the 50% discount...at a better cost. I loved it so much I convinced my friend to buy the small rolling duffel for herself.
The multiple pockets, zipper sections, excellent padding, and detachable laptop bag make this duffel an excellent choice for anyone looking for a long term bag.
I have two of these now. One is from 2007, all black, and the second is from 2008, black/white camo pattern. Well worth the money. They each hold plenty of clothes, shoes, etc... for long trips. I was using one for 7 day trips but needed a second when doing extended travel.
They are light weight which is good when you are constrained by the 50lb limit when flying. There lack of weight doesn't mean it is of poor quality. These have been to and from London, Dallas, San Diego, DC... numerous times and have come out with very minor dings. The bottom and the corners show minor wear from being handled. They are also easy to navigate. I have pulled then together through airports with very little trouble.
You never have to worry about grabbing another persons "black non-desrcript" bag at the airport. That worry is replaced with the one that someone will grab them before you do.
Excellent piece of lugguge. I use mine to haul around my undisplayed material and to organize my trunk. It fits nicely in my trunk and still leaves a lot of room in the trunk. there's room for about 2 weeks worth of clothing PLUS other crap. Like its smaller cousin, the Large rolling duffel is constructed of nice, heavyweight canvas and the zippers are heavy duty. They sure can take a beating. The interior mesh divider is an excellent feature. IT forces you to organize and thus, you're able to pack more. ZThe included "dopp kit" or toiletry bag is great for storing wet clothes or a couple of pairs of flip-flops or sandals.
This is my first foray into Oakley Luggage. I'm impressed. I've been watching it for some time before finally being able to pick one up. Even my friend who have seen it have commented on it. It's not common for 21 year old guys to tell you how cool your luggage is. Now they want one as well. The one thing I'm unsure about is in regard to its classification. This is obviously one of the AP product line, as evidenced by the removable outer laptop case, the inner shoe case, the metal clips, and all the requisite AP straps. In fact, I attached two of my AP pouches to the laptop bag already.
Like the X-Metal Soft Vault, this case is a little too squishy for my tastes. I use it with my Half Jackets, but I'm always afraid that I'll damage a lens if I throw a text book on top of it in my bag.
THIS IS THE CARBON FIBER VAULT THAT COMES WITH THE NANO WIRE.
THis VAULT is strong and looks great. It will get your glasses alot of compliments due to the unique appearance. My only complaint is that is does not have a strong hinge like the METAL VAULT and can open up.
it's an oakley, so you are guaranteed only the finest. protects and best of all-it lets others know there's something very expensive inside. i think this is a must since it's best to invest on something to protect your most priced posessions.
I bought this one for my penny, the x metal soft vault is to large for it. I use it as my service vault specially when I go out and have to take the penny off my face. I use it as my storage at the car or in the office. Your glasses will be safe inside it.
This is the perfect case for your day to day shades but I would upgrade to one of the vaults for protection of anything really expensive/rare. This is low key too, sometimes I get tired of pulling out the wire vault case and people making comments about how extreme it is. I wouldn't hesitate to use this for any of the plastic oakley shades.
Okay, it's a vault so what can you really say - but I have quite a few of these and they give your Os the protection they deserve. Though I've recently found that the inner lining near the zip is becoming frayed, I don't see it as a major problem.
This case fits my Romeo 2's fine! Keeps them safe in all situations.
Have had this for years and has protected my juliets without issue - awesome case - worth the investment!
The perfect protection to keep your precious o safe. Quick and easy access, and the shape allows it to be easily thrown in just about any space.
fits perfectly on my eye jacket 2.0. ur oakley is very safe here. i've been using it for 6 years already. have taken it on my international trips and fits right well on my clutch bag.
I like the looks a little bit but wasnt too happy about the zipper easily breaking off
Well worth the money. I have never had any issue with mine. It does a fantastic job protecting my shades. The zipper is strong. It is called the soft vault but it truely isn't. It is just soft next to it's metal counterpart. You can put your shades in this and use it as a football if you want, and at the end of the game you can unzip this vault and put your shades on for the drive home.
I bought this for my XX's. Exact same (besides size and shape) as the X Metal and Jacket Soft Vaults. I'm not worried about them getting smashed in there, it is pretty sturdy and has ample room for the glasses. I wouldn't go throwing anything on top of it though.
There is absolutley nothing soft about these. You can even put your neopreme sleeve on your glasses then put them inside the vault and it fits perfectly for added protection. My fives fit like a glove and the vault does not give enough to alarm me when weight is atop. Overall a fantastic purchase.
These vaults are da bomb! They are super strong, SUPER well made, and last forever! I ran my car 87 times over one and my half jackets inside weren't even scratched or bent in any way! They're light, too, so you can just slip them in your pocket and smile knowing your investment is safe. And the zippers would NEVER break because they're made of SPACE AGE polymer that Oakley spent years on R&D to develop. In fact, it's the same polymer they used on the gun mount when I was door gunner for the Space Shuttle. 5 stars.
Have mine for about 3 years now and they've done their job. Never failed me. Extremely lightweight and surprisingly strong hard shell. Sometimes I throw it around my room and forget I have my Oakleys in there...lol! The zipper never came off mine and mine looks like new still after all the abuse its been through.
This is the only case that I could find that would actually fit Oil Drums and it worked well for about two months. Then the zipper broke in half and for some reason the glue that Oakley uses to make their cases smells like a skunk if they are left in the sunlight for a long time.
I do like this vault, it doesn't spring open like the metal vault and but bigger glasses like the juliets and larger xmetals fit kind of tight in the box but they are protected
I have several in various places, just to insure that my investments are always being protected.
Still have the old version with the embossed O and normal zipper. I find it very strong and have no worries about my Oakleys when the are in the "Ballistic Case", as it was called in the past. In the large version most glasses fit, although the Juliet and most X-Metals are too big.
professor oak -
I've had this case for YEARS, back with the original logo (miss it) and for what it is I couldn't be happier. Own the large and small and they have decent protection-amazing for a soft case-and the construction is solid. Fits most of my shades but might be a bit too small for larger frames.
Best looking and functional duffel bag I have ever owned!!
People at the Airport were giving it some envious looks! =)
which made me scared to check it in but I had to.
I'm glad I got it when I did.
This is a high quality case that fits full size men's watch. I ride my motorcycle daily and my watch doesn't sit too well with my motorcycle gloves. This watch vault makes an excellent home for my watch while I'm riding. Don't let the name "Soft Vault" fool you, it's very sturdy and holds it's shape so that your watch doesn't get squashed. The inside is lined with soft velvety material and it's very friendly to watches that are from all kinds of material.
I used to travel a lot and this came in really handy. Best protection you can find for virtually any watch
Very compact. Great for vacations and also as a daily refuge for your Oakley timepiece. Worth every penny.
Great case. Worth every penny. Portects very well. ZEven though its "soft" it's extremely tough. 5 stars
I never thought of having a case for a watch. Until I saw the Oakley watch vault. So sweet! Allow your watch to travel safely ... or provide a home for your extra Oakley watches at home. A winner all around.
Good case. Does the job by keeping my polished minute machine scratch free.
keeps my crushes protected when traveling. cant possibly scratch watches if theyre inside this
This thing is awesome.
It is soo small yet it can hold large watches. It protects watch from bumps, scratches and dings during storage and travel. If you have an OAKLEY watch, you need to buy one of these to protect your investment.
FYI; I can even fit my TIME TANK/MINUTE MACHINE in it!!!
Though it's called large it's surprisingly compact. It will still hold a Judge watch and is a lot more practical than the case the Judge retails in (though not as stylish).
I have no dought it will protect my watch admirably but am woried a little about having its face toward the zipper. Hope zipping it open and close won't scratch the surface
Love it! As soon as I got my watch, I started looking for a case to protect it, and this one (of course) fit the bill. I highly recommend it to anyone who has an Oakley watch.
Perfect case for my Timebombs and my Blade. Like the eyewear cases it fits uniformly around the wristwear and can take a solid beating. My D2 would fit in the case, however the buttons would often get pressed and I'd be setting off alarms and timers by accident so perhaps not the best option for the performance watches.
Im very dessapointed after i sent my watch for battery replacement the strap was all scratched NEVER send your watches to oakley for battery replacement
This case is a life saver. It is really solid and keeps your valuable Time Machine in perfect condition. It helps you save space when travelling with your watches. Mine are always in use.
SICK! these lens are so special...there is like 100 pair of these lesn but oakley should make a billion of these because these lens help you to stay far of a headache due to your lens and it look fantastic
These lenses are an option for SI Glasses. There are more than 100 pairs of these, and the purpose was to negate the effects of a laser on the eye. Taken from USStandardIssue.com:
Laser Strike: Optical Density not less than 4.0 - wavelengths of 820nm to 850nm and the wavelength of 1064nm*. Visible light transmittance: 54% suitable for medium to low light conditions
They are sold presently in an array with a clear lens, a gray lens, and the frames. They're not meant to help you avoid a headache, they're meant to avoid losing your vision to a laser weapon. If you don't know what you're talking about, don't review something.
Their not meant to protect you from laser weapons. They protect you from infrared laser sights. Many of the rifles we use are equipped PEQ2 IR or equivalent night sighting that can be damaging to the eye.So um, don't write a review unless you know what you are talking about.
A superb option offered when the Ten frame first came out. I ended up selecting the 10W40 color since it had the black iridium polarized lenses. But much like the 10W40, the crystal base of the Lava is great for looking when it's not on your head. However, I would say the Lava looks better once your wearing it over the 10W40.
Nice womens and childrens frame color. It's a crystal frame that stays light when worn instead of being too dark to tell the difference.
Color: New Khaki and Earth
A great shirt suitable for business casual work attire. The print on the fabric looks like a fine diamond-plate pattern... not busy at all, but much nicer than a solid color. The stretch logo on the bottom edge of the left chest pocket is a nice, subtle touch and really the only thing that identifies this shirt as Oakley. Surprisingly, a size L fit me quite well. I'm usually a S or M depending on the type of shirt. This is a "True Fit" shirt... I wonder if that means the sizes run smaller?
Check that off the list of thigns I was confused about.
Leather Gold was one of those oddball lenses they threw at us. The same way there was Blue Iridium in the mid 90's that was blue, then it came back and was more Purple on the OO and then Ice. The first time it was used was in the OO and it was actually less mirror then most Iridium's. It went from showing Purple to Gold depending how you angled it. When it came out in the OO•E however it was more Gold but still less mirrored. Still a bronze base and excellent to look through.
Leather Gold Iridium lenses are great; they look stylin' yet understated as they're less mirrored than other Iridium lenses, but still have a bit of shine. they'r dark enough for sunny days but provides excellent detail and contrast... great for driving.
I love the deep, rich color of this lens. Not so different than the Gold Iridium to look through but nicer to look at in my opinion especially on the Why 3 lenses.
The base tint is very similar to regular Gold Iridium, but the mirror finish is much lighter, giving the lenses a more brown appearance from the outside.
Leather Gold Iridium brings a nice subdued look to the somewhat striking gold iridium. Great for the styles it was chosen for (largely the OO line). A good match made, the leather gold really tones down the iridium while keeping the optics similar to the gold iridium.
i cant really tell the difference between this and gold iridium but as far as i can tell this is slightly darker than normal GI.
I like this lens - comfortable to wear, but cannot really tell the difference between this and Gold Iridium when wearing.
I got to try these on the other day and while they're a great looking pair of flip-flops, I just didn't find them as comfortable as either the Gasket or Split Smoke/Crater. It's probably not contoured right for my feet since they're always canted off to the side but others might end up loving them.
But again, they look great and look durable enough to take a regular beating. (Kinda like Tina Turner. Kidding.) And you have love anything called the "Leather Paddle." S&M fetishists, your sandals are here.
Great sandals. Very comfortable and durable. I want to get the black ones too.
Beautiful, simply a must for all you PDA owners and oakley lovers.
it is made from the softest leather and has a true metal icon on the front the the case.
It can store money and credit cards and 2 pens.
your PDA will look great and be protected while in this stylish case.
it´s stores my PDA just right and you can put all card in this too...
perfect if you don´t want carry the hole time a laptop arround...
usefull if you have a PDA for that!!! :o))
very nice material and good quality.
nothing to bitch...
If you have a PDA, you should already have this Oakley PDA case. It's just as good as some of the best PDA cases out there ... but you get supple leather, a sweet Oakley icon and even Oakley velcro inside.
too plain on the outside. They should have added a pickled texture to give it more Oakley. The metal icon is what made it nice
A great way to complete my luggage collection. Pull my laptop from an oakley bag , and I do the same with my Palm, that has it's own. It also has room for some cards or other small documnets and a scribe or pen. Having it held in place with velcro gives you the option of taking it out so easily, for all matter of reasons.
I don't have a PDA, but I went out and got one of these anyway.
The left of the case holds about 6 cards; 5 top-loading and 1 side-loading, behind the Warning Triangle. There's also space behind this to store your loose documents, but not a lot though; the case isn't very large to begin with. A pen/stylus holder is attached. Love that Warning Triangle by the way.
The right hand side is reserved for your PDA, with 'GENUINE LEATHER' embossed near the bottom. Another pen/stylus holder here. Your PDA attaches to the adhesive side of a component, and the component itself is velcroed onto the case. Not quite sure if I like that arrangement, but it seems to do the job. An Icon with three 'bolts' above it is patterned into the Velcro though, which is a very nice touch.
Overall, I think it's great for what I use it for, as a carry case for my LaCie portable hard drive. It looks great as well; it really is too bad that it's no longer available. Get one if you can!
had mine for like 4 years or so, soft leather, holds my palm to a t, with my cards and space pen! looks and feels good and protects every cool!thing-mega
If you want people to stare at your wallet when you pay for anything, keep a Pickle in your pocket. I saw this on eBay and it wasn't even available from Oakley online so I called a shop I buy from in Bend, Or and they had it for me in a week. Maximum space for cards and cash. The metal icon is eye catching and the pickle texture is amazing. If I could actually sit with a wallet in my rear pocket I would say it could massage my @$$. I have had it for almost 3 years now and it's still such a great piece. The leather holds up very well.
Unique. It got washed at my washer but I got it restored and it's still beautiful. Metal Icon and Pickle is what sold me. A must have!!!
I bought the pickle after not being able to get hold of the smooth leather wallet. The 'pickle' bumps aren't nearly as harsh and 'zitty' as the look in some of the photos, so what you end up with is a very cool looking wallet that is classy enough to wear with a suit and cool enough to use at the beach.
Lots of space and a cool mini-card holder with yellow warning triangle which can be used as part of the wallet or taken out for when you don't need your full sized wallet.
I ABSOLUTLY LOVE THIS WALLET!!! Probably my favorite wallet I have ever gotten. I got it off ebay for a steal of $33 dollars. Everytime I pull this out of my pocket I got people asking me where I got it. With its wide design, awesome "pickle bump" pattern and Real metal oakley icon on the side how can you go wrong. I have not had this wallet for very long so I cant say how long it will hold up. Most "Good" Wallets I have owned last for 4-6 years. With oakleys amazing quality I can be sure this will do about the same. Must have wallet for any oakley fanatic like me!
The pickles keep the wallet in your pocket, No more sliding wallet syndrome & the metal icon is always noticed,
Would have prefered the inside to be leather instead of nylon.
But this wallet has a great look and feel.
Very cool. I don't have much use for the little inserted card holder though.
Great wallet, looks the business, lovely soft leather, really har wearing too. Keeps it's shape even when getting mashed up in your pocket - better than leather wallet large on this score. Shame they couldn't stretch to leather on the inside, but otherwise a brilliant wallet.
Very nice looking wallet even if its very thick in your back pocket. I had this one for a few months now and it dosen't really age well. A lot of the stitches broke, the "pickle" texture is now completely flat and the leather is a bit worn. Overall good wallet, but I'll go with the smooth one when this one dies.
Love this wallet...have had it almost 3 years and the internal stiching finally blew out over xmas. Still a supurb product - most wallets don't last me much more than a year. I will either have another pickle or i've had my eye on the script wallet for a while....heheh
Okay, I bought another one because it's just so unique. so Oakley
Love this wallet. Great design and build. I like a fairly thin but pad so I have just been using the insert (who carries cash anymore?) to its fullest and it works great, some people even ask about it not knowing it was only an insert to a bigger oakley wallet.
great leather wallet with nice features. the tough looking pickle surface is very dressy and the removable section is great if your travling light.
Amazing Wallet.....I've used every day in my back jeans pocket for at least 9 years and still going strong......no rips or tears...indestructible
I have had this wallet for about a year now and it still looks new. The stitching has held up great. I need to buy another one before they get discontinued.
Picked up one of these for my wife. A really great wallet option to hold "just the basics". Not too large for a ladies wallet. But it zips, has the cool script logo.
A must have for the wallet collection.
Script logo on black leather, zipped closure.
second zip on the rear, enough space for the essentials.
I love the way the skull belt looks on a guy or a girl, but the older ones randomly pop open at the most inconvenient times. The newest ones seem to be better designed, and they seem more secure while on.
looks cool but comes un done when i sit down sometimes
this one it´s cool no question but if you have to move arround during you wearing this belt it´s not very comfortable and it could happen that the belt pinches in the stomach....
otherwise this belt look with the huge skull just "evil".
great belt and everybody will see these if you wear it :o))
Extreem coolness!!!! The metal skull buckle tends to come undone unless it is worn very tightly. but who cares if you look cool right?
Having the metal rings on the leather strap made this so Oakley, I switch the buckle to the Icon buckle and threw it in my display. Very very nice
This is probably the coolest Oakley product I have ever seen. I haven't faced any problems with the buckle so far and it fits very comfortably.
Love the buckle not too sure about the belt.
I bought 2, one to keep as an original, The second I removed from the belt dremeled two of the prongs off and fitted it to the Oakley leather belt. Never comes undone, infact is difficult to remove. And Looks good!
Awsome design - usual Oakley stuff - however, it does happen to come loose sometimes and unbuckle - could lead to rather embarrasing situations. However, the design makes this flaw easily forgettable.
The staple of Oakley belts. A must-have. Defaintely a great looking belt, but the older generations are are bad at keeping buckled. The new generations fixed that problem, but took away from the wow-factor a little bit.
This belt screams Okaley. I have two, Burnt Gold and Black. I have never had the belt unpop, all I have had is compliments.
Iim on the hunt for all colour versions, as I cannot praise the quality of these belts enough.
Mine's in Sheet Metal, with the newer 3-prong stubs behind the skull head, which keeps the belt secured. Received great complements. Only problem: the adjustable loop often gets in the way of my jeans/pants/khakis' belt loop. Maybe because I'm just barely in L size range, the "remainder" belt can be combersome and unwieldly. But real cool.
Love the Design! I have worn the belt out mine is 2 years old. Anyone know wear I can get a new belt like the one that came with it. Buckle is great! firstname.lastname@example.org
Not the most comfortable belt in the world, but definitely the coolest belt. I think the black color looks best because it comes with the silver skull which draws the most attention, and why else would you wear this belt other than for attention?
I agree with the popular opinion that this belt looks cool. There are multiple holes all along the belt therefore any waistline can be accommodated. The buckle securely hooks into the hole. I have had not problems with spontaneous unhooking.
The straps at the back could have been better. I traded it.
Nice to see the attention put into modifying the box for this one colorway. The only thing nicer than having this box, is having the Leather Wrap Straight Jacket inside. They did the same for the Leather Square Wire.
Although I'm admittedly not a big fan of the leather-wrap Oakley editions, this box takes the cake. Glance at it and you'll do a double-take, possibly mistaking the close-up image of the shades for the head of a snake. The picture really highlights the textured details of the shades and provokes further curiosity: what's inside the box?
I had this special ordered from Newport Sunglasses. It's a bit pricey, but I don't think I'll ever have to buy a wallet again. I was waiting for my old leather wallet to die, but as ragged as it got, it still held together fine. So eventually I got sick of waiting, and grabbed this monster. I really do mean monster too, it's huge. It folds out into 4 sections, one for cards on either side, one for the snap flap, and the remaining two for a full size dual bill slot, a zipper for other items, and more card slots with flaps to allow photo inserts. Once folded up, it has a change zipper also on the outside for quick coin access. The triangle warning logo is on one flap. I've pretty much filled this wallet with stuff, but it can still fit more. It you have the pocket space, I'd highly recommend it. It's pricey, but how often to women get new purses. This at least will last you a lifetime.
Agree with all about the price, but I picked this up for my wife to replace her large kevlar wallet. It really is a step up and meets all her female wallet needs.
Very nice wallet, got this one for my girlfriend this christmas. Dann's right, it's pricey, 90$ cdn, but it seems to be very well made. Sure will last longer than my pickle.
My wife bought this for me as a gift. It is very cool but just too big for me to carry around - had to have something a little smaller
It is rather large, but then again, if you want small get the other Leather one. Useful becuase it has a coin holder, and is good for storing lots of notes, credit slips etc. Useful it you are planning a long trip. Very good build quality.
I don't know when these other comments were written, but I can tell you: This wallet does last a lifetime. (At least more than a wallet's usual lifetime.) I bought mine in 1999. Now, 12 years later in 2011, it's still in good condition (though I wouldn't say "very good") -- and I've used it nearly every day since then. I'm not the kind of person who takes my wallet out of my pocket when I sit, either. I sit on this hunk of leather, metal, and plastic all the time. All 350+ pounds of me. Is there any better test of the quality of this item? It is getting a bit boring, though, so I think it's time to find a new, smaller, alternative. Maybe it'll help my back pain, too.
My favorite wallet so far. I like the detachable ID holder. Looks simply great. Unfortunatly has no pocket for the change, but it's not a big deal.
This is a very nice wallet. It is made of nice quality black leather. It has a lot of card sleeves, and is symmetrically designed if you take out the ID card insert.
The ID card insert is a cool feature, because if you dont want it, you can take it out! It is quite secure and won't easily fall out of the wallet or anything. Also the insert has a cool hole-y design, with a laser cut yellow triangle that reads "WARNING: Keep cover securley fastened when machine is running" which can also be found on the Oakley duffel bags.
It doesn't have a coin compartment, but for a high class wallet like this, keep your loose change in your pocket.
Great wallet. I Love it.
If you're an Oakley fan in search of a classic-looking wallet, then look no further. Featuring leather construction, simple yet elegant aesthetics, and multiple storage compartments, this wallet provides more ameneties than one would expect. The embossed metal icon represents the icing on the cake, and lets everyone know what type of wallet stores your ca$h. The only mentionable drawback is that the wallet appears to be a bit bulky, but considering its numerous other advantages it's still well worth acquiring.
The nicest wallet I ever did own. It's been used everyday for 2 years and still the leather is in very good condition. The metal icon is very nice.
In my opinion, the best overall Oakley wallet out there. More refined than the kevlar. The leather is wonderful. And it really holds up over time. I have used my leather wallet daily for at least the past 4 years, and it still looks pretty good. I even have a new one in the wings for whenever my current wallet calls it quits.
Awesome wallet. Leather is really supple. Perfect size for me. On the small end but that's what I like. Hardcore but not too hardcore. Five Stars
Very typical wallet. I like the pickled wallet better. I got of this for cheap and it's just so plain
Agree with Oogie, a much nicer wallet than kevlar, with a great metal icon and plenty of room for cards and cash. I particularly like the ID card insert, though I don't use it, it's very cool with perforated leather and nice Oakley 'warning triangle'. I bought it in preference to Pickle as this has leather insides, wheras Pickle does not. Amazing wallet. Go out and buy one.
This is a very classy looking wallet and by far the best wallet that oakley makes. High grade leather and a O icon on the front that looks great. I thought the pickled wallet was cheesy, but when I saw this I had to have it. The only cons are it doesnt have a change compartment but high end wallets never do and also the 80.00 price tag in Canada. Should be a requirement for all o-review members.
All leather wallet, unlike the pickle. (which I prefer on design)
removeable leather card insert and the metal icon.
Nice wallet if a little plain
Good: The BEST leather wallet I've used! I have been using this for about 2 years and its still in excellent condition! It is big enough to fit big notes such as £20 note which is quite big, and it has lots of slots/sleeves for credit cards. High quality leather, durable and it has got the look!!!
Bad: Some people might find it to be too thick but u can always remove the detachable piece! (^-^)b
Absolutely lovely wallet - very well made - looks as good as the day I bought it. Lots of space for notes and cards (although sometimes a bit small for UK notes - have to slide them in very deep to stop them poking up), and no coin pocket though (but then again, with a wallet like this, it would be strange to have one).
Gnarley wallet. I love mine and carry it everywhere. The insert ID holder is super sweet too. Just an amazing piece to have and to use.
This wallet is just awesome. I've had mine for about 2 years now, and it still looks good. I'm just glad they're still widely available here in the Philippines, just so I can get one for myself when the time comes for me to replace my old one. The Metal Icon provides a great look, the leather insert provides that cutting edge look as only the big "O" can. 5 Stars
I have the perforated black leather wallet. I do not see it listed under this site's accessories section but, but the "leather wallet small" is the closest thing to it. This perforated one actually has a coin pouch built into the removable ID slot it comes with. The overall leather and construction feels very high quality and and the polished square O looks better than the leather wallet small's dull "O" logo on the front, in my opinion. Inside, you can see an embossed icon of Oakley's headquarters, and it says "OAKLEY GENUINE LEATHER." In addition to the 6 card holder slots and 4 "hidden" ones, there is a bill divider as well. I love my wallet!
This is nice, but I'll simply say that the Quilted one is better. Overall, this one is too plain, and aside from the logo, it's indistinguishable from any other good leather wallet. Got mine for about half retail, so dun matter to me. But I wouldn't have paid retail for just the O logo.
One of the most interesting frame adaptions for the original Straight Jacket. It's entirely wrapped in shiney leather with a snakeskin texture. This is very rare and is one for the collection. It seems to be treated, but I still wouldn't wear it out in the rain.
One of the weirdest frame type, but also highly desirable. My leather has gone downhill and is very dark, so you have to be careful where you wear it. Rain is a big no-no. Otherwise, another must have.
I tried these on. Its a really cool concept incorporating leather with x-metal. I wish they would do it with another style. I'm not a big fan of the Mars so I just couldn't pull the trigger.
Mars Leather Wrap. Made with suede leather, I think the danger is always there for some damage and unsightly wear. But my Mars are still looking new and fantastic after 6+ years or so. A unique styling idea with the leather wrap attached using the holes in the frame. A beautiful combination. Brings some sophistication to some oddly designed eyewear.
These have always intrigued me. When they first came out in 1998, and Michael Jordan was sporting them in a brown fedora, I knew I had to get a pair. I think these are the kinda of glasses you wear with a shaved head. What really sparked my interest in them was their brief appearance in Fight Club. I don’t wear them too much, but they have a special place in my collection.
alot of people like these but I hate them and think they look so awful. it just looks like someone has glued bits of leather to a crater mars.
Awesome, must be the craziest,impractical frame colour they ever did,so pretty much one for the collector.
CRAZY, this is a nice pumpkin browny orange snake patterned leather wrap.
it looks and feels like soft snakeskin.
only oakley could have come up with something like this.
The frame color is a translucent burgundy of sorts. The tips of the ear stems past the ear sock aren't covered.
Another rare frame type. One of the original Square Wires, much like the original straight jacket, is wrapped in a shiney leather. It looks rather silly, but it's a nice collector's item.
It's really more of a "frame treatment" than a true color. Anyone know what color the frame is?
The design incorporating leather says Oakley all over, rain and sweat are a big no-no with this frame.
They dont fit me, but when I had one, I really appreciated the attention to details and the good workmanship that went into making this beauty possible.
Be prepared for a range of reaction when wearing this frame. It is simply outlandish and makes utterly no sense. But, that's what makes it so cool. The leather must be used with care however, as it is prone to wear. A bold statement by the Oakley design team that is unlikely to be topped in the near and distant future.
The fact that someone would think of wrapping an X-metal frame with leather and putting it on the market is simple awesome! There is no sense or purpose for it, but they did it because it was possible! It attracts a lot of attention and you will always get a conversation started with these babies
While it certainly scores kudos for originality, there is little use for a frame that resembles a pair of 1960s snakeskin leather shoes. Oakley had a very unique idea with this frame combo, indeed, but I wouldn't be caught dead wearing something that looks like this.
The leather frame is the only reason for me to own a Mars. It is absolutely beautiful and absolutely ridiculous.
Awesome! Oddities are always a welcome addition to any collection. I think it's funny that people will rant and rave about Woodgrain or White Tiger or Bengal, but when it comes down to it, Leather Wrapped is much more than a frame color, it's just plain weird. The time and engineering investment involved to make Leather sunglasses is just impressive. I'd like to shake the hands of the guy who suggested it, and the manager who was laid back enough to say "Why not?"
It's a handy lens cleaning kit in an attractive ballistic nylon pouch. Read the directions first which states to remove any heavy dirt with light buffing using the cloth. After spraying each lens press the cloth over each one until the solution is absorbed (do not buff dry) My Ice polarized lenses were cleaned perfectly and even appeared darker after cleaning.
it works good, just make sure if you have a lot of dust or actual dirt on the lenses to wash it of with water before you wipe it otherwise it will scratch really bad
I find this kit to be good at removing heavy oils but as it gets absorbed into the cloth, it begins to streak the lenses. Spread the solution over the lenses quickly first, then lightly buff the remainder away with a dry part of the cloth. If you press hard with the solution-dampened cloth, it will streak the lenses and you'll have to start over again. The screwdriver tool is crap, the tip bent the first time I tried tightening my Jackknife glasses, and it does not work with the x-metal screws. The little case pouch is cool for storage and transport.
I think the solution is just a mixture of mild-soapy water and 90% rubbing alcohol.
I still find good ole hand soap and water, water rinsing, followed by terry-towl blotting, followed by a light bag buff to be the best method of cleaning non-hydrophobic lenses.
Muy padre muy visto pero no he podido limpiar bien mis lentes con la solucion que tiene prefiero agua y jabon
I was really surprised how well this kit works. I use it to clean my work Romeo 2s every couple of days when the build up gets too bad. The cloth is perfect and one spray of solution is the perfect amount for both lenses. I know there was a debate about the best way to clean your lenses. For my money, THIS is the best way. After I use it my lenses look brand new and perfect again.
When I first saw this cleaning kit, I never thought it could be more effective than the microbag that comes with the glasses. But after I bought one, it convinced me, no doubt.
The cloth feels very soft and finer compared to microbag, and it's 2 times bigger too. The HDO logo looks also nice. The solution is very effective. Dissolves your skin's oil properly, like it should. Since the bottle has a pump sprayhead, you can spray different amount of solution as you prefer. The bottle contains 1 fl oz. which is ca. 30ml.
The little screwdriver comes very handy, if you need to tighten any of them. Has 4 different tips, that fits all Oakley eyewear.
The stylish case is a very nice touch and it's compact enough to carry it no matter where you go.
This is the PERFECT accessory for everyone who owns a pair of OAKLEY's. The spritzer dispenses the perfect amount for cleaning glasses. The solution cuts through any grit and grime on the lens. It also comes with a LARGE micro fiber cleaning cloth. Screw driver is handing if needed and all comes in neat adn compact case. LOVE IT!!!!
Much has already been said on this product, but to reiterate. You get the cleaning solution, screwdrivers, and large cleaning cloth all contained in a nylon case a bit smaller than a standard eyeglass case with a hook and loop closure. The solution is great for cutting through skin oils that may accumulate on the lenses and frames. From what I was told by an Oakley store employee they will give you free refills on the solution but I have yet to confirm this.
Absolutely the best way to clean your lenses. And they are free refills for life!I can say that bc I work for Oakley. You can take it to any Oakley with no receipt needed and we will fill it up for you! Precision nozzle gives the right amount you need to clean your lenses and how can you go wrong for 8 or 15 bucks! Safe on any kind of lens( except hydrophobic treated)and computer monitor as well! Absolutely a must have if you are an Oakley fan and you care about your glasses!
I really like this kit. It comes with everything one may need to keep their glasses tuned up and looking great - cleaning spray, a cleaning cloth and a screwdriver with multiple heads. Not to mention, it's all wrapped up in a convenient and good-looking ballistic case. I highly recommend this kit for anyone who owns even one pair of Oakleys.
After receiving some Juliets with smudged-up lenses from an eBay low-life I was infuriated. After cleaning the lenses with Oakley's lens cleaner I was elated. The stuff works - like magic. Poof! Smudges disappear.
I bought the kit at an airport whilst in transit and I havn't been happier with anything else. The most incredible part is the clothe it is incredibly soft and works like magic!
If Oakley ever makes another version, I would suggest adding magnetic tips to the screw drivers - you do not want to lose one of those screws!
This is one of Oakley's best kept secrets. Now that I've tried it, I can never live without it. Where microfiber bags may smear, this solution makes lucid. Definitely buy one. I give these as gifts to friends who don't believe me.
I have to admit, I bouight this just because it looked really cool!! but then again most of my Oakley purchases are based on that same reasoning. However, this is a great product. As others have stated, the microfiber bags eventualy just smear, but a short spray and wipe and smear free lenses. I too give them to others that own Oakleys, and no one can believe how such a simple product can look and perform so well.
Great kit for the price, and the little screwdriver had come in handy. I like the fact they will refill/replace the solution canisters once your out, and I get asked whenever I'm in a store if I need more solution to just bring in the empty.
The microfiber cloth is very soft and gets the job done quite well. The pouch easily holds everything and makes it convenient for travel. Free refills is a big bonus also.
This kit is completely worth the price. It no longer comes with the screwdriver, though, but it is now $10. A big plus, which others have stated, is that Oakley will refill your canister for FREE once you run out of solution. The micro cloth comes in a few different styles as well. The case has a nice ruggedness to it.
To protect the lenses before sales. Nothing more.
A little cardboard box that offers little protection. The glasses themselfs are in a (thin) foam pouch though. I guess it's okay for stores but I have some spare lenses and I prefer to keep those in a rigid plastic box. I would love it if Oakley made a vault type case for spare lenses because this little box is not designed for continued use.
Besides the yellow version in the picture there's also a white one with a differend print.
nothing special... just a black/yellow box with the O icon and "Lens Replacement" written across.
It does what it's suppose to do. It's nice to have as extra protection for your lenses.
I just got a pair of lenses in the new redesigned box,and I didn't like either the new black appearance,or the box itself.For some inexplicable reason,they enlarged them box,and whereas it was a nice slick,elegant little thing,now it's a whole chunk that offers nothing more,and futhermore requires more storing space.The lenses literally float in it,when in the older boxes they were still and secure,and I can't really understand who came up with this idea.Some things should never change,what a waste of material that is!
Haven't come across this ("Lens Tag") before, and hope I never will... Resembles a cheap Wal-Mart tag for a pair of $10 shades. Let's hope Lux doesn't desecrate Oakley's image with something as hideous as this...
Edit: This may have come with the Polished Carbon Ichiros... I can't remember. Either way, it's bad news. Avoid.
Everyone should have a Lenticular shirt better yet a 2.0. Awesome shirt drawings.
Matte silver, no more, no less. I think I'm partial to darker frame colors, so this one doesn't do much for me. It's a perfectly fine color, though.
These look really good on the wire lenses. Like the chrome, this also gives a really nice classy look to your style.
Nice and simple frame option. Like Ed said: 'Matte silver, no more, no less.' I totally agree.
I have these on my RX WHY3 they are perfect for putting on your RX glasses as I use them for work on computers and it really tones down bright screens and it makes your eyes cope with the strain alot better.
got these on my A Wire Thick and i sometimes use them indoors, especially with a computer screen. they're also pretty good for some overcast days. they're fashionable yet functional.
Very similar to Powder Blue,only slightly darker and more glossy.
I think this was an exclusive colour to the Collegiate range.
I saw this lens tint as an alternative when I was looking for prescription Half Jacket XLJs at an optician site. Ordered it along with Light Grey Transition and must say that I really like both of them. The blue one is perfect for cloudy outdoor activities (I use mine when I train on my roadbike) and in fact it seems to add a little contrast when I use it in my car.
The tint is beatiful and stands out among the many options.
I don't own them, but these look amazing in A wires, especially if you are after an understated yet really cool look. I've seen quite a few ladies with such a combo and it looks the business.
Like others, these came with my A-wire thick. A great option for dark days or indoor/nighttime use. They sure lighten up the world, so definitely not for bright light situations.
I just got these (finally) & they look awesome! I thought they may look similar to Ruby when looking through them but they are totally different, & better in my opinion.
Real nice lens. Gives pretty good clarity but I think this is mainly for looks. Looks the same on the inside as it looks on the outside. You'll see everything in carolina blue.
Let me start off by saying WOW! I just got a pair of custom Gascans with these lenses, and they are completely awesome. They give everything a crystal clear bluish tint that is just spectacular looking. When you take them off everything looks really drab. I definetely need to get more glasses with these lenses. If you have never seen life through these lenses you are definetely missing out.
Now here's a lens that looks somewhat feminine and also serves no real purpose (other than possibly being a fashion statement by someone's standards): Light Blue. Offering little/no protection from bright light, no real advantage for contrast, and leaving the wearer's eyes open to plain view of the world, Light Blue lenses were probably created to satisfy a tiny niche market for those seeking this particular color.
No idea why these are rated somewhat well. I don't get the functionality behind these. There are a lot of lenses that have low light transmission, but are extremely functional. Take the persimmon lenses for example. Overall, a let down. Wasn't expecting much anyways...Got these in a pair of custom Gascan's for a very low price so I shouldn't be complaining. Overall, very poor. Indoors, they're not even good due to the blueish tint they give off. No contrast...just blue.
I am not sure if this use exclusively by Oakley since it's just a regular lightbox. I had a Splice translucent poster to go with this but I didn't have the light box so I gave it away for free
This is a weird lens. It strikes me as an indoor type of lens, and I guess it would be ok on a cloudy day with reflective ambient light. The weird part is that it is a very light lens, and it was offered on the Thump, which has a flip-up lens, which negates the need for a light lens...
How do you make one of the most boring Oakley lenses even worse? Decrease its intensity.
Light grey is the culmination of a lackluster lens being watered-down and stripped of its already demeaning personality. You'd be much better suited using Slate or Warm Grey than this lens.
- Split Jacket (SI), as a rep/lens -
Not a bad lens, at least for what I use it for. I am giving this one a 2 just because it does what I expected.
I think I have a unique perspective on this particular lens since I have to be APEL compliant when I am at work. I know that the Light Grey isn't really a "contrast" lens, but I can't wear most of the contrast lenses (outside of VR28) in garrison so this one fills the gap. On cloudy or stormy days, the Black or Grey is too dark, which on those days I would generally have on my HI Blue Twenty when driving in and around anyway. The Light Grey fills that gap when the HIB come off because its not too dark (obviously) but still grey so technically still APEL compliant (although I am sure there are some that would argue against that :D)
The look is not unlike Grey or Grey Polarized. People can see your eyes no matter the weather conditions. With Grey, of course the darker the light or weather the less your eyes show. With Light Grey, they are always visible and that is to be expected.
With general wear, its the same crystal clarity of all the other Oakley lenses. Nice and sharp with respect to the tint and as long as conditions stay inclimate, my eyes stay comfortable.
Of course, outside of those conditions they have to come right back off for something darker. Definitely for overcast, haze, or general dreariness. Not even for days with just clouds bouncing around where the sun goes in and out. As soon as a ray hits my eyes, the squinting begins.
Definitely a niche lens and I can totally understand why many people who have tried it tend to not prefer it. I just so happened to have found that niche and for what its worth, works out pretty well for me.
Not my favorite but definitely useful and I am glad I got it. Now if only I can get the polarized version ...
Overall: 2 - Nice To Have - Wait For A Sale
May be one of the top choices for allround use, between indoors and outdoor activities. Looks are really nothing here, but the function is great.
I have one pair of Half Jacket XLJ metallic red with these Transition lenses on them and one pair of Bottlecap chrystal black with an AR (anti reflective) version on them. The only backdrop is that the transition doesn't work indoors, so when you drive a car - use something more protective. The grey only comes when outdoors. Inside they are clear.
I bought the Grapevines for my wife, and as much as I've tried to get them to "transition", I haven't been able to notice a difference. I'd say that they might be great in theory, but in application, they have been much less than stellar.
Good all-round lenses for daytime use away from water. No iridium coating means they are quite scratchproof. I use them mountain biking, and haven't scratched them yet, despite a year of solid use. Very tough as Oakley point out - the first day I had them, the handlebars got caught on a fence when I was carrying the bike, and swung round so the bar end hit me square in the eye. It was sore, but I hate to think what it would have been like without the glasses. I thought I would have cracked or at least scratched the glasses, but they were 100% fine.
The lenses do transition if you are outside and the sun comes out. I don't notice them doing it, but they do! Diving into dark woodland after being in the sunlight they don't change quick enough nor really get light enough - they are still tinted gray, but still, that is the nature of things, you can't have clear to 9% transmission.
Recommended if you want a workmanlike set of lenses that just get the job done, but choose polarized instead for water!
I just got this colour in on a Radar Path lens. Seems to fill a gap between brighter lenses (clear, persimmon and pink) and darker sun lenses. I use it on roadbike training in mixed light conditions. The polarization makes it easy to see the road and it is a good alternative to G30 (pink) and VR 28 (light brown).
My lens is the (new) one with only 25% light transmission, which makes it more comparable with the G30 and VR 28 lenses. It really works fine in mixed conditions.
They're ok. I got these standard on a pair of Half Jacket's online. I had to change them though. I'm a fan of the mirrored finish, and the lack of the iridium coating made them unfavorable. They were nice for the time being though.
Color: Basic Blue
Reflective Oakley Emblem looks just like Liquid Metal
Liquid Metal looks cool but the big O and the stretch icon together is not that great
Being an avowed thong (sandal) wearer, I'm not the biggest fan of slip-ons but the Liquid Smoke was almost good enough to convert me. It slips on like a glove and has a nice snug fit and the sleeve that goes almost the full length of the sandal lets you walk around without making that flappity-clappity sound every pair of flip-flops tend to make.
My sister has this on her fates. It's a nice translucent blue with a hint of a marble texture inside. It also works as a Nirvana reference, which all the teen girls seem to love.
Lens: G40 Black Gradient
Got this for my girlfriend and she totally loved it! The ornate design on the arms, partnered with the subtle Icon gives these glasses a truly feminine and totally classy identity.
The only negative from this watch is it looses time... But most automatics either loose or gain so not that big of a deal. Other wise awesome styling and looks.
just awesome! This pack rocks! Black & white, just these colors! You dont need more! :)
Very odd, has some random bits strewn about it that just seem to be punk kids causing myhem, but hey its still some cool snow boarding action, just wish we could hear the soundtrack in the stores.
Got this with my SI assault boot (after the Penny return and I needed an item to fill up the extra credit I had). The hat itself is pretty stylish, though a bit too plain in my opinion for the price . Nonetheless, it is a comfortable hat to wear.
Got these for free buying a pair of Juliets. Don't really use it, but it looks great in my double wide.
It's your everyday baseball cap, but has a nice true metal icon off to the side. I normally wouldn't bother with one, but got a great deal.
My g/f has this and it's pretty awesome. The LEDs are quite useful, and the design is nice. Only problem is that some parts of it feel cheep... but it hasn't broken yet, so can't complain too much.
Girlriend bought it as a spring/summer bag. She's got a closet full of high-end, high-priced designer bags, but she got this one at a deep discount, and hasn't put it down since. Kinda funky, fits right into the Oakley lineup.
the yellow bee -
Really comfortable sadals and perfect fit,and they look nice for $40 bucks you can't go wrong.
Color : Black
Got them on sale and they fit great. I've been looking for a great pair of sandals that are both durable, fast-drying, and comfortable. These look cool enough to wear to the Beach or just for kicking back around town.
