    Goin' with these bad boys:


    Thanks for the feedback, it has changed my order!
    Good choice - they're the only Wiley model worth buying. I have all three, and I consider them all crap, but the first two are more crap than the last.

    I used a pair of SG-1s for the last few months.

    Pros;
    Light
    Slim
    Fit well in conjuction with NVGs

    Cons;
    They scratch easily.
    The lenses fall out easily.
    They fog up worse than dear old London town.
    The eye pieces would actually pool with sweat.
    The segments in the foam would allow dust to enter and force jets of air directly into your eyeballs if you were traveling at speed.

    I bought a ten dollar pair from the PX that were the shit.

    Well, if money's no object, as you stated, why not go with laser eyeball surgery? Then "prescription" won't be a factor in selecting ballistic glasses. I'm planning to do that hopefully soon after the new year.

    I'm still waiting to see the long term affects of getting laser eye surgery. I've heard from many people that it will usually only last ten years and your eyes will revert back to what state they were in before the surgery. as well the military won't cover it, and having to take time off from the schedule I've got for the next year it ain't gonna happen.
    but it has been something that I've been looking into for quite some time, but I'd rather see what the long term effects are for it before I go that way.
    now if the military did cover it; I'd be ALL over it

    What about using the military eyeglasses and going with a pair of Oakley A-Frame goggles? Diamondback Tactical has the Ballistic A-frames.
    What about going with Oakley Half-Jackets? I know they can get them in prescription form.

    I heard that the Wiley-X issued are shi*..scratch easily..and the aforementioned lens popping out.

    What about the ESS stuff? Would that cause headaches and vomiting as well?

    again for gogs, they don't like us wearing them on airborne ops. but maybe that would be a choice for later on.
    maybe I'll have to send oakleys another inquiry about some of this stuff then.

    Default Allowed to wear for Basic training? (off topic sorta)

    Hi,
    This question's for those who have been through basic training already.
    I'm just wondering if you guys know if I'm allowed to bring this into Boot camp. Or if I'm only allowed to use the glasses they issue me there.
    Sorry it's slightly off topic.
    Thanks for your time guys.

    Never had a problem with my Oakleys..

    'course the government goes with the lowest bidder..which results in lower standards.

    Default Oakley Sunglasses related

    Most(if not all) know that the M-frames are...well.. perfect for combat..(I had a pair of Pro M-Frames..They were the shizzle fo rizzle)
    A lot of the SpecOps use them..
    I have also heard that the A-Frame Goggles were better than the Wileys and the cheapo Sun,Wind,Dust surplus issue.

    What about the other sunglasses that Oakley makes..
    I saw a picture of a soldier in All Hands magazine(Navy publication from my HM3 cousin) and he was wearing the Half-Jackets.
    I know someone who used the wire frame Oakleys when she was in Iraq..
    Any other knowledge of them being used in the sandbox?
