    Hello!

    New to the forum and new to Oakley sunglasses. Loving Oakley so far, but I do have a question about a pair that I bought today at my local Oakley store.

    So, what I thought I was buying, was the Infinite Hero Flak Jacket XLJ. I asked the Oakley rep at the store, "hey. is this the Infinite Hero series?" ... he said "yes, that's it". But after looking at Google Images, I don't think that's what I have here. I believe what I have is some kind of special edition, but I don't think it's Infinite Hero (which is really what I wanted, although these are cool, too). I pressed the guy a little more for clarification, because I thought the Infinite Hero series was a sort of purple & grey theme - not camo. He told me that this green & brown color way is the new Infinite Hero color way. Is that true? What do I really have here? What's also odd is, there's no mention anywhere on the box that this is a special edition of any kind - but they were $240, which is obviously more than the standard $210 for the normal Flak Jacket XLJ polarized.

    Thanks!

    Ok, thanks. And yes, there is a special logo etched into the lens.

    Another thing I just noticed - the sticker on the box says Oakley Military & Government Sales - which is the site to order Standard Issue. So, do I have a Standard Issue pair of shades here? Because I was under the impression that in order to get SI glasses, you have to submit some paperwork, get approved, and all that. A bit of a process.
