    The cost difference is big 50-60 for oakleys lenses compared to 20-30 for polarized VL lenses that are direct replacements

    Imo NO. I bought 4 pairs of VL's and I deplore them. They sit in my case collecting dust.

    You get what you pay for.

    I bough VL lenses for my Spikes because Oakley no longer supply them. The quality is inferior. The optical clarity isn't as good and the polarization isn't as strong either. I find the VL lenses give me a headache because I'm used to the OEM lenses.

    If the option is there to buy OEM its worth it.

    that's like putting stick on fender vents on a Tahoe and calling it an Escalade...sure, maybe they look semi acceptable (that's a huuuuge stretch), but they really don't work at all functinally. VL and all the aftermarket cheap-o lenses are equivalent to gas station spec lenses or Wal-Mart rack shades....
