    I've got my eye on a pair of eye jackets which are currently going very cheap. They are advertised as

    just Oakley sunglasses but from the photos (which aren't great) they look like gen 1 eye jackets and I

    think they are FMJ model 5.56 possibly which I really like.

    The only problem is that one if the orbitals has a break in it. This looks like quite a clean break though.

    I was just wondering if these are worthwhile buying if really cheap as a repair job?

    I really like this colour in the eye jacket so am quite tempted but are they just worthless if cracked?

    I would buy them for the other parts, but that's just me. I have yet to see a repair job on an orbital that looked good or lasted. Some fakes of these floating around as well.

    They were £1 but seems to be a bit of interest in them and now nearer £10 which is less tempting.

    May give them a miss. Will def keep a look out for some FMJ though, really like that finish.

    Am I allowed to post link on here?

    I reckon a repair job would be pretty easy..

    Got to be worth £15ish.

    If they do not have a bag, you have to ask yourself... Have they been cleaned with a T-Shirt< which is often the case. They could look mint, but put them on in direct sunlight and you get annoying trails from micro scratches. :(

    I wont bid, don't worry.. :)

    Eye Jackets where probably the most popular Oakleys throughout mid to late nineties in the UK?

    They remind me of that pre 2000, Alien look.. Sort of X Files :)

    I'll see what they're going for at end. Don't want to spend too much at moment.

    Feel free to bid if you want them!
