I found a listing on the Bay with a picture if some flak jackets taken directly from the Oakley site and half of a picture of a kid wearing something that looked like X-Metals. I decided to take a chance and offered him less than the $60 asking price, he took it and I was very surprised when they arrived. I now I have my first pair of X-Metals. I think they are carbon x-square d with black iridium. There is a little pitting of the paint under the lens but other than that they are very clean. Cannot believe it!
