    I was wondering is there a good replacement for the fives 2.0?

    I have a smaller than average head and have tried on several other oakleys but have never found a good replacement for the fives 2.0.

    I love my fives 2.0 and but due to the fact that they are discontinued i have resort to checking ebay every day to find a good pair to replace my old ones.

    I have had my fives 2.0 for the last 6 years and taken care of them but now the coating on the face side of the lenses is peeling/flaking of i really need a new pair.

    I have no idea why they started peeling/flaking but it might be due to the suncream i use

    Anybody have any ideas about a good replacement?

    Fives 4.0 are about as close as you're going to get to a 2.0 in more modern frames. Fives 3.0/Squared are also similar in size and fit, although the styling is a bit different. Minute 1.0 (gen 1-2), Eye Jacket 1.0, and Straight Jacket should all work for you pretty well too.

    @ Dex. Do you buy original replacement lenses or other brand lenses?

    Has anybody got experience with other brand lenses or is this sacrilidge to ask this in this forum?

    I have looked at original replacement lenses but i am put of by the postage charge as i live in the Netherlands.

    The original lenses on ebay are about $ 60 but the postage offered is about $ 50.

    Which puts the total price in the range of secondhand maybe new oakleys

    Just bought and received a pair of replacement polarized fire iridium lenses from sunglass beach on ebay.

    Although they are thinner and the edges arent as rounded as the oem's they look quite good.

    Had a hard time trying to fit them but once in the look great.

    I hope that the fire iridium layer on the outside can withstand a lot of cleaning and wont fade.

    Have to wear them yet, no sun here in NL at the moment, to check the claim of being polarized.
