    Just found out from my O insider that the new Racing Jacket will replace the Jawbone due to copyright infringement issues on the name. It will have the same front as the Jawbone (Jawbone lenses will be compatible) but sport new stems. This is why there was a delay of accessory parts for the Jawbone. Expect to see them in the next month or two.

    UPDATE (03/14/12): It is now on the website. Oakley Racing Jacket Sunglasses available at the online Oakley store

    They're similar to the Split Jacket to accept the head strap and Wind Jacket gasket.

    Matte White w/ Jade Iridium & Light Grey
    Matte White w/ Fire Iridium & Persimmon
    Polished Black w/ Black Iridium & Clear
    White w/ Black Ghost Text w/ Clear to Black Photochromic
    Polished Black w/ Slate & Light Grey
    Glacier w/ Black Iridium Polar & Clear
    Matte Black Ink w/ OO Red Polar & Light Grey
    Silver w/ Fire Iridium Polar & Persimmon
    Livestrong Polished Black w/ Black Iridium


    These are all the color ways for the Asian Fit. Generally speaking they coincide with each other color wise so I would imagine these are going to be the regular fit colors as well.

    Release date is supposedly 5/1/2012... We'll see if that's true or not soon enough.
