    Haha the kid I work with is buying a SECOND pair of oakley sunglasses in a little over a week (he had just lost his 150 dollar ray bans). These ones are aviator style! Who would spend that much money on a pair of aviators? He ain't gonna have no money left for his first year at university! I've been trying to convince him to spend less or at least buy a pair of glasses that look good but the marketing bug has caught him!

    I'm soon on my way to buy some new glasses at the ChinaTown Centre, beef patties to follow?. 150 for aviators? That does sound like too much for a classic style. Oakley have always been hideously over priced--good eye cover though. Anybody have the modern transition lenses? I'm hoping to get them to fade into orange for day riding. I always wished one could get the funky sunglasses in perscription but noooooo.

    Back in my irresponsible youth I used to buy nothing but Oakley. After a year in which I spent $1000 (between losing them, dog eating them..those nose pieces are soooo tasty, and breaking them) on fashionable sunglasses I learned the error of my ways and started buying cheaper ones. I don't look as cool but I can buy the expensive tuna to go with my Kraft dinner.

    I am a huge fan of the MEC espressos. The optics aren't amazing, but for my applications they are fine. My applications include: throwing them in my bag without a case followed by my locks, putting them in my pockets with my keys, losing them, having my girlfriends dog chew them up, riding with them all through the year in all different light conditions. They work well on the bike, on the slopes, on the boats and on the street.

    I can't say anything about surfing but I would imagine anything thats not a goggle with elastic straps would be easily lost on the waves, 'maui jim' or not. The only thing I am missing would be polarization but I think that it is pretty overrated for most applications anyways. 6 dollar replacement lenses are just about the sweetest feature any sunglasses in the world could have.

    My one pair of oakleys I owned I lost... never again!

    Oh yeah, I convinced the guy I work with not to buy a second pair of oakleys. All I had to mention was 'beer money' and he came to my side.

    Were I to buy a pair of oakleys today they would probably be these:

    I used to have the Mframes and the eye-jackets...both were sooooooooooo nice for offroading/snowboarding/dropping in a bag full of work and bikelocks and not getting crushed/ but of course I lost them and now have none

    Had a couple pairs of Oakley's years ago, got em severely discounted. Rode with Bolle for a couple years. Wouldn't say no to an Oakley Goggles for rippin' around in the winter. As long as they cover my glasses ok. Being a glasses wearer I suppose I've had better luck with my performance optics.

    two things that removed any respect regarding oakley:
    -too many rednecks with Oakley decals in the window of their vehicles
    -the oakley thump mp3 glasses

    also, I think basically everything they've designed in the last 5-10 years has been ugly as hell. I had a pair of m-frames and a pair of pro-frames (goggles). The pro-frames I still have but the (iridium coated) lenses are scratched to hell. I have no idea where my m-frames are. Both had great optics, but the iridium lenses will scratch from a strong breeze.

    Wearing an american flag one piece spandex suit should be considered worse than burning an american flag. Lets abolish the flag burning law and outlaw gaudy stars and stripes sports wear.

    How about those literal over-the-top glasses they came up with.....urgh.

    Flagwear if done right can be really cool, but that weren't it. I didn't know Operator was American.
    I remember the Oakley rep giving the new designs to bike couriers in Mtl for a couple years in the 80's, was like being sponsored.
    That's where I got my M-frames. I suppose it worked, as it seems Oakleys are the glasses to wear, despite scratch and cost difficulties.

    I'm such a stickler for optics, colour shift and contrasts in varied light conditions. I balked at getting all the replacement lenses.

    When i was still employed and had health insurance i got a pair of addidas prescription sports glasses that have the prescription inserts behind the tinted lenses, which are interchangable. i think it's a good system, but i agree with somnabulant that there are too many hillbillies rocking the oaklies with shaved heads and goatees...
