    Vl is probably the best aftermarket lens maker

    I bought a pair of Walleva from the manufacture's eBay listing. The lens is lighter and more flexible than Oakley. Personally I kinda regret the purchase.

    I wouldnt buy aftermarket, especially for a radar since they are so available still. post on here and see if theres anyone with the lenses you want, maybe they can give youa better price than HQ. IMO theres no beating original - thats why we buy oakleys in the first place..

    I have Walleva Jawbone lenses decent looks as far as the colors go but looking through them sucks I never wear them.

    I think Linegear blows VL away in quality. They are thicker and better made but only for metals.

    Certainly not Oakley quality...Oakley has most good colorways, but missing that silver "mirrored" look for most sport glasses. Need to offer Chrome Iridium...would look killer with many radar frames...I got the Walleva's for a pair of carbon print...it's a great combo...but it bugs me that I'm using after-market's.

    I would second this. I've purchased Walleva, VL, and some other brand that I don't even remember and VL was the best of the 3 lenses. If I can't find an Oakley lens in the color I want, I'll buy VL. I won't purchase another pair of Walleva's. Fitment and clarity were both sub-par

    +1, albeit I can understand saving a few bucks by buying the after market...
