Hi all,
Would really appreciate some help identifying these sunglasses - I think they’re original eye jackets? I’ve had them for years and managed to break the right arm on them while skiing last week - gutted. I’ve looked on the oakley website for spare parts but they don’t seem to have them - can anyone recommend where best to get a replacement arm (if possible)?

thanks in advance
Steve

Hi welcome , yes these are cobalt eye jackets you might be very lucky and find one here , but it is possible to repair these by pinning and gluing the arm then use a piece of shrink tube as a bandage under the earsoock . I had to do this with my cobalt minute .

Great advice from Riga Mortis - the break is in a good place to make a good repair and will be hidden by the ear sock.

These are first generation Eye Jackets which are notorious for being brittle. There is a second generation pair with improved materials which are more durable. Your lenses and ear socks are interchangeable with these.

Hi Riga Mortis (great username!). That’s great, thanks for the advice. I will give this a go - fingers crossed.
When you say “pinning”, did you drill at very small hole and use a piece of metal on the inside, or did you just put a pin along the outside?
Thanks again
Steve

That’s great, thanks for the advice. If the pinning doesn’t work I’ll look into the second generation pair.
Thanks again

Any idea what lens tint these lenses might be?

They remind me of the deep blue polarized.
