I have a pair of Razorwires and Ti something or others now. Going to pick up some more. What's your favorite?

The new M Frames (I believe they are called M frames 2.0) I also like Flakjackets. Both those models have the lower profile frames. That make wearing a helmet or ear protection a little more comfortable.

If at all possible hook up with a military, EMS, Fire, Police friend for the 50%+ government discount.

My old school M Frames saved my eye sight when a M2HB .50 Machinegun malfunctioned (I checked the headspace and timing myself) and exploded in my face.

I have a pair of Flak Jackets and pair of Twitch. I like them both, the Flak Jackets are nice because you can exchange the lenses, the Twitch remind me of the old Ray Ban Wayfarer.

Half-Jackets Polarized! But I ended up getting the Maui Jims polarized, they fit a lot better for my round head

I've had E wires, A wires, WireTaps, etc. My favorite driving / daily wears are my Why 8.2. Love the fit, and they have very dark Black Iridium lenses.

My experience with Oakleys is the way they look, if you have a round face the Ti and FMJs look funny, they make your face look fat. I would say go to a retailer, and try on several pairs, and look in the mirror. I purchased a pair of Flak jackets and I wore them once.


My buddies and co-workers would say " What? Did you swipe your little bros Oakleys ? "


LSS I have a pair of $185 sun glasses that I don't wear.

I thought the agreement was not to resell at profit? Been awhile since I used it.

You know... after I looked at it again I read it the same way. I guess you can buy and sell so long as it's not for profit.

Check before you accuse.

I didn't accuse you of anything... I guess I should have typed "Does that void the contract you agreed to when you signed up for the government deal?" Not everyone on ARFCOM is pre-sprung for attack mode...

It all depends on your head size and what you want to use them for. Post a pic of your face and I'll tell you which model will look good on you.

Here are the popular models you should avoid: Radar, Hatchet wire, and Eye Jacket 2.0. The Radar doesn't have break away hinges like the M frame, The Hatchets are aluminum like your Razrwires but the spring hinges are very weak.

If I could only own 1, I'd pick the Flak Jackets. They are more comfortable than the Half Jackets. My favorite every day wear is the titanium New Square Wire with Shallow Blue lenses:



And my favorite for sports is the Zero line.

I own:

Fives 2.0
Half-Jackets (w/ Several lenses)
Crosshair
Gascan S

I wear the Fives and Half-Jackets for shooting and other outdoor activities.

I wear the Crosshairs and Gascans for casual outings and driving.

I always thought I'd never own a pair of overpriced sunglasses....until I found out about the protection level that Oakley's offer. The Half-Jackets have saved damage to my eyes on several occasions. IMHO, they're priced about right. Of course, YMMV.

Those are sweet! I wish they didn't hit my brow bone or I'd wear them all the time. They are very light for an X metal.

+1 I wore Oakleys for many years.....switched to Maui Jim.

Have three different pair of them.

Got a pair of the titanium ones for free (supplie store) that I wear to work, you can't tear them up.(they are expensive but I didn't pay for them......sorta)
