Never heard of them, but they look pretty sweet.

IMHO, Oakley is overrated as fuck. Lens tech is good, but not miles ahead of everyone else like they want you to believe. Plus, I find their surround foam to be itchy as hell and just don't care for their overall fit.

the lenses and frames look alright but I've still to hear any convincing arguments for either photochromatics or polarized, both of which seem to be super high dollar items *read gimmicky* that don't actually translate well to snow.

Meh,

Doesn't look like they have many lens options that would work too well here in the PNW.

If they fit your face, and meet your lighting needs though, go for it. Those are the most important factors anyway.

Soooo basically because it doesn't suit you, they're overrated. \_(ツ)_/
