    Is there a size difference between the split jacket and racing jacket? There is a good deal on the vault on some polarized split jackets. I have tried on racing jackets before but not
    split jackets. I looked on Oakley's web site but couldnt really tell.

    Thanks

    The Racing Jackets are the new name for Jawbone's right? The Jawbone lenses are definitely taller than the Split's, I think the frames are wider too.

    I have both. The Splits seem to have more curve to them. The lens height is a little lower but because of the curvature the fit seems a little wider.

    I like the fit of the Jawbone/Racing Jacket's better

    The Split Jacket can be upgraded to Wind Jacket (Strap & Gasket)

    Considerably. I feel it fits more like the straight jacket

    I can not compare, because I hast have Split Jackets.
    Weeks ago I had both on my nose and as far as I can remember the Racing is a bit bigger.

    I have both and think that both are great frames. The RJ/JB is definitely bigger than the SJ, but I think moreso in the overall lens and orbitals. The fit betwen RJ/JB and SJ are close enough that I wouldn't call SJ significantly smaller in fit. I would say that the SJ has become one of the releases that I give some of my highest universal praise for. I just feel that the split jacket hits the sweet spot in fit, style, colorways, custom ability and generally good fit across many/most faces. If I had to choose between the two, I would go with the SJ.

    Not really a fan of the splits personally. To me the coverage and peripheral version is not adequate for a sports specific pair.
