    What is the difference between THIS X-Metal Soft Vault:

    SOFT VAULT DIFFERENCES - 20120430214030474.jpg

    and the THIS one, found on Ebay:
    SOFT VAULT DIFFERENCES - black oakley vault.jpg

    The coloring is different on the above one.....does this mean the lower case is a ripoff/fake?
    Where can I purchase a soft-vault with the white X?

    I think the different coloring has to do with the way the picture was taken. There is a difference in size between X Metal vaults, but I don't know how to determine that from pictures.

    Here's a pic from the Oakley website of the other vaults available: SOFT VAULT DIFFERENCES - rio olympics 2016.jpg




    Thanks, thisguy, shortly after the OP, I switched monitors, and it DOES seem to be a photo issue. The lower photo seems to be low-res.
    Kudos

    Here's mine today. Was just wondering if they were worth much or still available?

    The X-Metal Soft Vault fetches $40.00 or so on eBay

    Not bad. I suppose mines been doing its job for over 20 years. Not bad at all. In fairness I only noticed the x on the case recently!

    The following photo is of the regular Soft Vault, offered on the Oakley website:

    Me, (despite the run of bad-luck with my Juliet), am still an X-Metal purist

    @redphoenix one came with the XS and the other quiet possible was purchased on its own. From what I've been told the XS is suppose to be a bit bigger but I cannot speak on experience as I don't have a XS. Both should fit all X metals.

    I have a fake one with "Genuine Software" tag with a clip on the side. There's a black "O" logo on the middle of the case.

    The original: the stiches on the zipper is well-made, larger, greyish "X" logo, no clip and no tag.
