    If you could give one piece of Oakley related advice(tips, tricks, wisdom etc.) what would it be?

    My advice would be lens care - always use Oakley solution and microfiber bag to clean; never give in to the temptation to use your shirt or something for a quick touch-up.

    Related, keep your MF bags clean, too...

    Oh yeah, and don't wear x-metals while swimming in the ocean or carbon C-6s while jet skiing in Canadian lakes... :D

    Actually been looking at this more, definitely a hot topic lately. Need to replace my Frogskins Lenses after 2+ years of tough wear, they are fairly beat up.

    Reworded it to make more sense!

    Very good point, always works 10x better to use a bag, plus other cleaning chemical can easily damage your Oakleys!

    Carbon C-6's while jet skiing!! :behindsofa::popcorn:

    Edited to remove the no-longer-relevant question...:D

    Yes, part of my point was the solution formulation compatibility, but mostly it's to avoid damaging valuable lenses with easily-avoidable cleaning marks; I just wince at that...

    In collecting....be patient. It saves money over time. Learned that from Dann years ago.
