    Hi I'm currently after a new set of sunglasses. I want the new prism h2o shallow water lens for fishing and the sapphire iridium polarized for daily use. My issue is I can't seem to find the sapphire iridium polarized in flak jacket xjl or the prism h2o shallow water in flak 2.0.
    I'd prefer a single frame I can swap lenses with, any help would be appreciated. I'm located in the UK.

    The flak 2.0 is one of the lightest, best fitting frames. I dunno about everyone else but with the flak, the lenses always dug into my cheeks, doesnt happen with 2.0.
    I would get 2.0 and then get the replacements

    Recently tried the 2.0's on and was really surprised by how light they were. Check out below, for a quick comparison of the frames:

    So what your saying is if I can get hold of some prism shallow water lenses for these is definitely get the flak 2.0
    Thanks

    Owning both styles, that's definitely the route I would go. Not sure if the Prizm Shallow Water is available to buy separate for the 2.0's yet (not available in Custom section online), so you may have to wait a bit for it or try an O-Store in your area.

    I've not managed to find it on the internet I've only been to 2 small Oakley retailers I'll have to see if there are any bigger stores. If you see them again could you get me the sku code so I could track them down.
    Thanks
