Would you kindly do a review of Oakley x-metal halfX, and how it compared with Flak Jacket XLJ in terms of fit and dimension? Thanx
PS: also expecting for your review of Badman. cheers

Jason Duhamel says:

I was planning on buying these until I found out Oakley does not make replacement lenses for them so if you scratch the lenses, your out upwards of $240. I’ll pass

Babji Karri says:

Oakley have shot themselves in the foot with their discontinuing the old style wiretap and juliet models.Fuck you Oakley!

Mateus Bravo says:

Is it possible to replace the lenses easily by hand? Thanks!!!

AngeloR674 says:

this model looks like more of the xmetal half x….

benlg says:

Great review bro, I was almost sold at metal flak jacket as you described but def dont like heavy. Maybe I”ll opt for the Oakley Square Wire instead

Dann Thombs says:

The original Wiretap was interesting. They couldn’t decide what to do with the nose pieces, so there was a Mars style ‘stub’, then some hard rubber pads on stems, then finally the clear pads like the other wires.

This is cool looking sunglass. I wish there were more options on the oakley site at the moment.
