    Hi guys,

    I am talking to a guy in a danish forum for mountainbiking and he is trying to figure out if he bought fake Jawbones.

    Could you take a look at this thread on the danish forum and give me your opinion (just look at the pictures - don't worry about the danish text).

    DMK - Dansk Mountainbike Klub - mtb.dk - SOLGT Oakley Jawbone Custom med 4 sæt glas SOLGT - mtb.dk

    Please take into consideration that the glasses delivered with his glasses should be

    - Yellow vented
    - Black Iridium
    - VR28 Black Iridium Polarized (does they exist?)
    - Fire vented

    I have never seen a VR28 Black Iridium Polarized in real life so I don't know if the color on them is right or wrong.
    Furthermore the bag is not right and there is a polishing cloth which can not be legit. Box seems strange as well.

    He is having trouble mounting a pair of Jaws that I traded with him (nosepiece will not click on).

    Any inputs appreciated.

    i'm not a jawbone expert...but there could be a fitting issue on the jaw because if one of the pairs is asian fit and the other is not?
    does it have any sku's on the frame?

    They look a little iffy but the case doesnt look right. My jawbone case is not Cut off on the whole back just where the arms go.

    I agree on the hardcase. It looks very wrong. Holes for the extra lenses are placed different than on my Jawbonecases.

    I think they're fake. The +Red polarized and the oakley are probably authentic. The replica cloth with typical foakley styling is one reason I think it's fake as well as the other lenses.

    I think you are right. Only - the seller states that it is not +Red but VR28 Black Iridium Pol which is odd as the lens looks like +Red.

    Something about the top ridge of the frame on the first pic seems to scream "fake" for me. There's a seam or something running along the top of it that seems off.

    VR28 Black Iridium Polarized
    Oakley cleaning cloth (not bag). Both geuine.

    I won't weigh in to those Jawbones being real or not, I couldn't tell from those pics with what I know.
