    I'm new to Oakley... my first pair are the matte black polarized Gascans. Recently I tried Batwolfs on at Black Diamond and I really like the coverage.
    I've been very satisfied with the Gascans. But I really want the Batwolfs now, its just hard to go ahead and spend on another pair when I already have the sexy Gascans. What motivates you to collect?

    Different colors and designs. The batwolfs are highly customizable. I personally match my glasses to my outfits. Currently I am wearing a red polo, jeans, red jordans, and wearing my fonseca antix. :thumbup:

    Keep in mind if the Gascan fits great the Batwolf may not hug your head and stay in place very well. Just something to consider.

    I like collecting to change things up. I have utility pairs with different lenses for how sunny the day is or what activities I'll be engaged in, and I have casual pairs in different styles and colors to suit my mood, whether I want a loud pair or something more low-key, etc.

    when you start with a gascan, it doesnt really draw you into collecting to be honest.

    Try picking up a pair of Xmetals - Juliets perhaps...then you'll understand. =P

    ^BriP said it, nobody quite understands the style and class of the Juliets. Either way, Rustpot is correct, they are definitely different fitting frames. The Gascans are more for a medium sized face I'd say, but are very condensed. The Batwolfs wrap a lot more, as they are mostly a shield lens, but sometimes sit closer to your eyes, depending on the shape of your face. There are a few qualitative differences, but the look is definitely worth shelling out the $220 for a polarized pair, especially with the O's that are customizable.

    You need to pick & choose frames that YOU like as YOU will be wearing them & it will be YOUR collection. So if you feel they are right then do it. I can't really wear the shield lensed glasses as I don't feel they suit me. So if you like the frame GO FOR IT.
