1st off let me start by stating , i'm no fan boy of Oakley's , i either love them or hate them ...
I bought these glasses at a fair price S&H included here on Amazon . I was in the market for a black pair to replace an older and somewhat worn pair of black Oakley's i already owned for sometime . I saw these in a few local shops but was not happy with the pricing and customer service , so , off to the WWW i went . I knew they would fit my rather larger than average head and provide the eye coverage i expected . I also knew they were available with polarized lenses which i'm a nut for . Granted most local shops could probably have ordered them custom for me but why do that and pay more when i could handle it all right here and get exactly what i wanted , cheaper and faster ? SO i did ...
The invoice stated it would be between 12 and 17 days for delivery and man was i anxious . Surprisingly though they arrived early :) After only 9 days from the date of order i had my new Fuel Cells in matte black with black chrome logo's , grey tinted polarized lenses ( they matched the black chrome logo's ) and brand spanking new right out the package . EXCELLENT !
Right off the bat though i did notice 1 small issue , granted it's completely harmless and seriously not a big deal but when i ordered them it gave me an option to select what style lil' sock i wanted which was not what was included in my shipment . Instead i received the standard plain jane rootbeer colored baggy / O sock as they call it . But i'm not one to fuss over spilled milk or trivial things .
These glasses are very very similar to the Gascan's if your familiar with those frames . The only differences are the arms have a seperate lil' groove in them and are just a lil' bit thicker . Also on this frame the lenses are a tiny bit larger than on my Gascan's and sit a lil' higher on the bridge of your nose . But aside from those minor details they look nearly identical .
I mentioned above i owned a pair of Gascan's , the frames by which all others are now judged when it comes to fit finish performance and everything else in my book . I truly love those glasses ! These are 99% as good as those are . My only real complaint about these glass's or specifically the frames is that with them sitting slightly higher on the bridge of my nose and having these slightly larger lenses they tend to bump my brow and sit so close to my eyes that occasionally i can feel my lashes hit the lenses . I've discussed this with a couple friends and other owners and they seem to have similar comments / thoughts / issues / whatever you wanna lable it as . However , not 1 of those people that i've spoke with , including myself would give them up , send em' back or trade out of them . So this testifies , atleast in my case as to how otherwise perfect , comfortable and satisfying they truly are .
If your shopping O's then take a good hard serious look at these , they're exceptional shades an available here at Amazon for pretty good deals too ;)
