    today, i was able to try on a pair of flak jackets. i already own a pair of half jackets, but i think i like the flat stem of the flaks over the curved stem on the half's. after trying them on, i immediately noticed the flak jackets were extremely comfortable as are the half's, but looked better due to the flat stems.

    anyway, i have an opportunity to get a pair of S.I. flak jackets at the S.I. discounted price. matte black with black earsocks and nosebombs. however, this is exactly how my half jackets look. so i wanted to change it up a bit by buying some different colored replacement earsocks. but it would be nice to see a picture first. the flak jackets seem to be extremely popular, so i thought the chance of someone having one of the following color combinations were pretty good.

    matte black frame/black iridium lenses with:
    white earsocks
    red earsocks
    slate earsocks

    any pics are appreciated.

    The red is actually a bit brighter in person than it is on the site.

    I know it's not exactly what you're looking for, but it's pretty close. I can take pictures for you when i get home if you need me to.

    You know you can go to the Oakley website and customize these yourself and see what they'll look like.

    a picture would be great. the red is kind of what i'm worried about. the website makes the red earsocks look pretty dark when i customize them. i think a brighter, more radiant red would look better against the black.

    i've tried that, but those pictures look so fake. i customized a pair with each color of earsocks, but its very hard to tell how it will really look. a real picture always helps more.

    thanks for the pic splice. the red def looks better in the real pic. i think the red and black go together nicely.
