    Hey guys,

    I just got a parcel from the postman! New Deviations! I put them on, and they fell really light, you forget that they're on your face! The have the trademark unobtanium rubbers on the stems (which ripped out a few of my hairs whilst putting them on- probably means that I need a haircut!). The sit close to the face, so there's not much annoying peripheral light intruding.

    It's nice to have a proper metal frame for once, makes a change from the plastic frogskins I collect. Shame that they come in just a brown bag like the holbrooks, but what was even weirder was the fact that the brown camo came in a back & white box whilst the polished black came in a standard brown box!

    The only tiny issue I have is that part of the SKU is printed on the crossbar...

    But all in all, I would recommend getting at least a pair if you had your eyes on them!

    Huh...the box you're Brown Camo ones came is the same as the one I got but mine came in a black bag...and I assumed they did away the brown box in favor of the black/white one so I was kinda stunned to see your Polished Black/Ruby ones came in that. Strange.

    Maybe it's a difference in batches? Although how come you got a black bag? The store I got them from got a re-up from Oakley and the deviations came straight from the box shipped to them from Oakley yesterday night...

    Looking at the dates on the barcode stickers:

    Brown Camo- 30.01.2012

    Polished Black- 08.02.2012

    That means that the brown box is the newer production run, which would be in line with Oakley's push to become more eco-friendly as the brown boxes are made from recycled materials and use less ink...

    Do it do it do it do it do it! Get them!

    I don't think ruby lenses suit me though :-/

    The brown camo reminds me of the DQM frogs! The polished black w/ruby is very tempting!

    the combination and the red accents are pretty well done . . .

    i guess, the brown camo will suit you better Chris!

    Yeah, brown camo is nice, and it looks better on me but I can't get used to bronze lenses. Reminds me of being in polluted cities.
