Keep em under $250 with maybe 3 sets of lenses (clear, light tint, and darker polarized tint) and I'm down for an FDE pair...and maybe an OD, Coyote, or flat black pair as well.
heh? we already have plenty of overpriced quality eye pro, mind as well buy tried and true regular Oakleys and ammo for that price. magpul has always excelled at bringing high quality gear at good prices to the masses, this is what I am thinking of here. they always find the niches of the market and capitalize there, not making the same thing everyone else does for the same price. they could easily make nearly indestructible, aesthetically superior, fully functional polymer frames, I'm just not sure about their quality lens making capabilities.
if they could do all of this for $50-60, and with their name and reputation for good kit, they could take over a large portion of the eye pro market.
