    So after waiting over a month for oakley to ship em out, i've finally got em in the mail! here are a couple quick pics in comparison to a holbrook so you can gauge the sizing. my first impression is that it is much more reasonably sized than the dispatch 1.

    no unfortunately i got rid of 95% of my oakleys, including all of my dispatches :(. i would have kept some but being a college student and all, i made some decisions (which is kinda regret!)

    sort of don't like them at first...I love the first one. the icons look smaller...the first Dispatch the front had a sort of eye brow curve to it, this one is just flat out straight...but black ink is a awesome frame color. :) Probably good for the general populatoin that these have been shrunk down, but Dispatch I wasn't that big on me:)
    BUT, I may just pick up the Jade iridium model :) just to go with Dispatch 1 and the gang lol.
    Funny how much more in size it is to the Holbrook.

    i do agree, the general shape of the dispatch 1's were more unique and looks a bit more sleek.

    its night time now in houston but after trying them on for a good while, i notice the stems sit a bit higher up toward the back of my head than the dispatch 1's. it makes for a odd feel, but its not uncomfortable or anything. the black ink is def an awesome color! at first i was a little iffy and wished they made a purely polished black frame for the polarized version, however the black ink is so subtly clear, you cant tell unless u bring it up to a bright light.

    one last note is the icon swapability. i think its a little tougher to change out because u have to have a pencil tip to push out the tab to release the icon. i SOOO wish that they made the icon swapping like the batwolf where u just push a tab. oh boy, i also miss my pair of batwolfs :(

    I did notice that icon swap, That's what I thought it would be, a snap tab...wonder what the reasoning was behind this design.
    well, maybe you'll find a pair of Batwolf's soon!

    I think the snap tab was having issues on the Batwolf after frequent icon changes.

    Real nice pickup man.
    I will say though, after seeing, holding, and trying on the D2 today, I do like them, BUT. Dispatch > D2...imo.
    I hate the way you change the icons though.

    I may eventually Pick up a Dispatch 2, but not anytime soon, I do love the frame but wish they kept the bigger size and gave it some more sleek shape... still a dispatch tho! :D
