Have to agree with this. The Oakley peripheral vision could be better. But I do like the lens choices. I have Airbrakes which are far easier to change than the Crowbars.

Burton Cargo 10k/10k and Vent Pants 15k/10k
Bonfire (forgot the name) Jacket 15k/10k

I have yet to have any issues with either brand, plus they were both easy to find for cheap.

Oakley has the best lens optics in the industry, by far.

If you guys are worried about swapping lenses, just do what I do, buy 5 frames and outfit them with 5 different lens colors. Voila!

Where did you find extra frames? I have multiple A-frame lenses, and have had no luck finding frames from Oakley or ebay.

Airbrake lenses area great and lens change mechanism is good. But peripheral vision is not as good as the Crowbar and the frame makes these creaking sounds when twisted.

I've bought them all second-hand. Either through forums, Craigslist, or friends who were off-loading extra pairs.

Try Ad Hunt'r - Search ALL of Craigslist™ and more!
