    Recently i have thru my own stupidity I have lost or stolen 3 sets of Oakleys
    2 of which i want to replace
    Jawbone black with OO red iridium
    Monster Dog Matt black
    So here's my dilemma do I buy same glasses that I lost or do i buy myself a pair of Pitt Boss

    Have seen some Monster Dog Black si for sale £124
    Can replace Jawbone's for £194
    Also need new lenses for my Straight Jacket 2.0 Rootbeer £90
    A new set of Pit Boss will cost £490 i've never held or tried on Pit Boss but do own a pair of Pit Bull FMJ's & Monster Doggle that need lenses
    So do i buy to replace/repair old stock or splash out on something I've only ever seen on a web page/YouTube

    You guys are the experts guide me in my time of need

    Is there any possible way for you to see the Pit Boss in person before buying it?

    I'm of the opinion that if you can't see it in person and are not sure if you would like it then you can spend your money more wisely by replacing multiple items for the same or even less money.

    That depends ...

    Have you learned your lesson, or is there a good chance that these will be lost/stolen again?

    Lost/stolen i messed up but the desire still stands with the Jawbones i liked how the looked and driving as job they served the purpose BUT i also have Split Jacket in Rootbeer which are a real good driving glasses up till recently I had'nt seen the Monster Dog Si and now i really want them bad alway a fan of the Dog but in that colour ahhhhhhh to be in love
    Now with the Pit Boss i've been saying since the PB1 release that i wanted them but never put my money where my mouth was so to speak i know to say i'd buy them and store them safe in their box would be a lie because if you buy'em you wear'em
    I do have an odd shape head and and i do like my Pit Bull and my Monster Doggle so how much bigger(badder) would Pit Boss 2 in comparison

    Also here's another option send Monster Doggle to DrChop have him Cerakote and cut a new ruby red lens if possible then I would have something a little special .

    If pit bull fits you well, I don't see any problem on buying either the Pit Boss 1 or 2. Check out this review and comparison of Pit Boss VS Pit Bull


    And to compare Pit Boss 1 vs Pit Boss 2 Pit Boss 1 vs Pit Boss 2 | Oakley Forum

    Keep in mind the comfort was increased with the Pitboss II. The original has stiff stems that cause fatigue or pinching on some people.

    I have a PBII and enjoy it. Sadly I've never had a PB1 on my head so I too am leery of spending the cash on a pair I haven't tried on. There have been some good prices on both styles here on the forum lately.

    I like the comfort that offers the PB2 but is not as nearly as badass as the first version, is not only the elite icon, the PB1 is more "aggressive" looking than the PB2, sadly I don't think anybody can stand wearing them for more than a couple hours
    And V2OAK is perfectly right, the fitting of the PitBull is the same as the PB, that's a great way to know if it'll for you well.
