Hi there ! I'll tell you my experience with oakley sunglasses. My first pair were the romeo 2.0 - which were stolen 2 months after I got them in my brothers truck. After this I decided to buy myself a pair of pitboss In november my girlfriend and I went in vacation in Florida. It was my first time in a beach with the sea. She told me "you should remove your prrrreeeeeciiiiooouuuusssss and soooo expensive sunglasses otherwise the sea will get 'em." I laugh and went i the water with my pitboss. Next thing I knew I lost them... After a week I needed badly some quality sunglasses so I went to oakley in boca raton and asked if there were still some c six around. I gave the manager my email adress and three days after they got them at the store (they used overnight shipping) When at the store my girlfriend convinced me that I should buy them... which I did. This is my story and I really hope that I won't loose them otherwise I'll need the carbon ones Just kidding anyways I find the aluminum version cooler.
