    So I'm stuck on figuring out what new Oakleys to get. On the vault website there are a pair of split jackets that come with a pair of Black OO polarized (btw what's the difference between OO and regular?) and they come with a set of (guessing) H.I. Yellow. I'm thinking that's a great deal for $100! And there's a pair of acid blue frogskins. The look pretty cool, sorta what's popular right now so I kinda want my own pair. I'm really only wanting to spend around $100 or less so I can't really decide. Any other suggestions? I don't want an all black pair, need some color. Thanks!

    P.S. If I purchased the split jackets would I regret not getting the Jawbones or the new Racing Jacket?

    a OO lens is on a G30 base rather than a grey base. The G30 gives a contrast compared to the neutral grey base.

    I'd strongly suggest you trying them on first as you may find one of the styles doesn't suit you. But if it were me i'd go with the split jacket as they are more versitile.

    OO have a G40 base. Not to be confused with the non-polar ones on the OO wires in the 90's.

    I think I' gonna go with the Split Jackets. They seem like a much better deal.
