    Hello everyone,
    Got a few Oakley sunglasses either without a case or one I'm not entirely happy with. As I am not sure which cases are a good fit with which glasses, I figured I should ask the experts...

    So first up, a Racing Jacket of the Jawbone type. With these I received what I assume to be a medium size soft vault, but one without an insert to hold the frame and additional lenses in place. I'd like a Racing Jacket Soft Vault with the insert but haven't been able to locate anyone selling them at a decent price and reasonable shipping charges to Sweden. Any tips on where I can get one? I assume the Jawbone Soft Vault is the same despite a different SKU, but interestingly enough the Half Jacket/Flak Jacket Soft Vault also looks exactly identical... but is it?

    Secondly, Juliet's currently in an X-Metal Soft Vault. I find this vault unnecessarily big, leaving the glasses free to tumble around inside, taking up tons of space in my bag, and the zipper has a tendency to get stuck on the inside fabric. Would a Metal Vault or Carbon Fiber Case be a good match size wise? Any suggestions for a more form-fitting case, perhaps from a third party? Pretty much the only thing I don't like about the Juliet's is that they're so bulky when folded up.

    Finally we have a Titanium Crosshair which currently lacks a case entirely. Would a Square O Hard Case be a good fit for these glasses? Other suggestions?

    Thanks!

    I like the large soft vaults, personally. They fit just about everything. Eyeshade, Radar/lock XL, M Frame Heater/Slash are about all I can't get in one. I think the Juliets barely fit them. Smaller pairs go in their bag first to keep anything from rubbing, or the bag gets wadded to put tension on them.

    The Square O or Carbon fiber should fit almost everything as well. The Ballistic Crosshair comes in a Carbon Fiber vault, if that's any indication for the Ti pair. I keep my Titanium Crosshair in a large soft vault.

    From the information at o-review.com it seems even the Large Metal Vault won't fit a pair of Juliet's. Guess I'll either have to stick with the X-Metal Soft Vault or look for something from a third party.

    Right now my primary question still is this: Is the Racing Jacket Soft Vault (100-760-001) the same as the Jawbone Soft Vault (77-058) and/or the Half Jacket Soft Vault (07-346) despite the different SKUs? The latter is cheap and easy to find, the former two not so...

    That would be incorrect Case/vault compatibility - uploadfromtaptalk1427242560297.jpg

    I have both Jawbone and Racing Jacket glasses. I cannot find any difference between the two soft vaults.

    That's what I assumed. Now the question remains, is the Half Jacket/Flak Jacket Soft Vault also the same?

    The cutout for the frame itself is much larger on the racing jacket/ jawbone vault than the flak/half jacket vault. See pic

    Hey there buddy so since you "hate "the xmetal soft case you wanna donate it to a good cause? It's going to house a pair of xmetal half x's.
