    Upon further reflection, Frank, I believe you're correct.

    And that's a shame.

    I was extremely excited for these to come out since I first saw them, but like everybody else hear, I'm so disappointed in how expensive they are.

    Maybe it's me, but the uniqueness and quality of the newer Oakley line seems to be lacking. I miss the old days of cutting edge stuff. Luxottica will eventually ruin what's left. I do like the Prizm lenses though.

    I believe that this is the general consensus.

    Now I do think the price of these Speed Jackets is outrageous and therefore carries questionable consumer worth after the Fast Jacket got cut sooner than later. But to judge its aesthetic and inspired quality...don't mean to be cold, but unless you're on active duty, Oakley never really had you in mind.

    The design is very functional for its purpose as well as the recent SI line, and has taken a more simplified aesthetic in doing so. For the longest time, outside of the Ballistic M-Frame, all they did was carry over mainline pairs. It's great that Oakley has been more dedicated in opening selection for the people who need it..

    I'd like someone to do a write up on the Speed Jacket, or lend me one and I'll do a thorough review
