Oakley Lens Question

So I've got a quick question. I have myself a pair of Oakley Flak Jackets and love them, but I'm interested in buying some clear lenses for them but I can't find them anywhere. On the customize portion of their website it shows an option for a clear lens but I've tried googling them and I can't find them anywhere. I'd really like some clear lenses for night time. Not really into those yellowish tints for night. I prefer clear.

Is this something I'm going to have to order directly through oakley?

Either through Oakley or an Oakley licensed optology shop.

If you soak the lenses overnight in acetone, it will remove the tinting and wont affect the optics at all.

Are you an acetone salesman or something?
Soak Oakley glasses in it; Clean Camelbak bottles with it

Not to be a smart@$$, but a simple Google search yields a ton of sources for clear Flak Jacket replacement lenses.

Google "oakley flak jackets clear" and select under "shopping". Also, any Oakley retailer (Sunglass Hut, for example) should be able to get them for you.


Can't find them anywhere???You haven't looked then.
