    I've been looking at purchasing a pair of Oakley Oil Rigs recently but am wondering how they fit compared to other similar Oakleys like Fuel Cells? They seem like a fairly large frame, but I'm concerned that they may be too large. I currently have a pair of Radar Paths, that fit well, though a little large.

    All opinions are welcomed!

    These are the pair I'm looking at: Oakley Custom Oil Rig | Official Oakley Store

    Never bought a pair, but I have tried them on in a few stores. The biggest surprise was how small they are. In pictures/websites they seem HUGE! But when I first saw them in an O store, I am constantly surprised at how moderately sized they are. The best test I always suggest is just trying them one, but maybe some other members can chime in. I know @BAPD77 has a bunch of Oil Rigs...

    Love the pair they are by far my favorite frame. I own some where between 4o different oil rigs. They are a larger frame with a shield lens. They fit amazing and don't allow any light to get in. There has been a few times I've seen them fit weird on people sometimes. But for the most part they fit well for most people. It's one of oakley's most sold lifestyle frame

    peoples opinion, i think that reference is due to the oil rig have a sheild lens. off the top of my head is the first lifestyle frame with a sheild lens?!?!? So i guess the new frame would be honored in is the Offshoot

    Again, not trying to insult anybody - the thread was created without knowing what people's opinion would be. And personally, who gives a f*ck what that opinion is?!? Isn't that part of the Oakley Attitude?

    And that's why I posted that old thread here - I would hope y'all Oil Rig fans wouldn't give a f*ck about that but still be able to get a laugh out of it. Because that's one of the things I think is important in life - humor... :D

    To tell the truth, I believe that the original Oil Rig is the better of the two: it's lines are unflustred, pure and work so well. The New Oil Rig is too fussy and cluttered. Just my tuppence worth.
