    Has this happened to any of you guys?
    I bought a new pair of Jawbones and it was clear the "backup" lens (lighter color) had a scratch caused by the soft vault case as i removed the lens?

    Should i be concerned in general to store the glasses in the case?
    Obviously I care alot more about the main polarized lens than the permission secondary lens

    I have noticed that there are really fine scratches on a lens that I have from when I have put it in the case. I wasn't sure if that was why but it could be. They don't affect vision at all though thankfully.

    Yep its happened to me before too but only with spare lenses. The pair in the frames have always been fine. My solution was to buy more frames so I now have no spare lenses!

    im glad that i'm not crazy.
    I believe jawbone has similar soft vault case to the flak jacket.
    Has anyone complained to Oakley? will they do something?
    I dont understand why the felt case should/could scratch the lens.

    Yeah I hate the cases but there isnt a better system when you dont have room to display anymore pairs they do more harm than good sometimes.

    defiantly not uncommon for the case to scratch the lens. Happened to a pair of radars

    This is exactly why almost all the FMJ Fast Jacket chrome came with a scratched nosebridge. This is entirely due to poor packaging in that ballistic case.

    I find this stuff very fustrating - especially as my permission lens had a scratch before they were ever put in the sunglasses.
    Has anyone complained to Oakley? Will they replace or do anything? It seems this is not a unique situation.
