    Hello Oakley community. For those that have the metal vault cases, how do you care for the foam inserts? Do they just deteriorate over time due to use? or exposed to elements? Heat/moisture?

    If you keep opening and closing the box, would it wear out the very midddle thinner foam that covers the hinge?

    Thanks in advance!

    as far as i can tell they just start to deteriorate over time, i have a collection of these and some are new in the box, but still the foam has fallen appart.
    opening and closing it isnt really a problem.
    the thin foam on the bottom dose tend to go first, when you squash it is dosnt bounce back very quickly and evently it will be useless.
    i am in the process of getting replacement foam cut by a custom foam cutting place if you are intrested i can always get an extra one cut if you need a replacement.
