Poor Quality Frame,
This review is from: Oakley Airbrake Men's Ski Goggles (Sports)
I bought a pair of these from a high-street shop and have been using them for the last five days. I desperately regret my choice.
My pair was supplied with two lenses and the low-light lens would not fit into the frames despite all my efforts. This forced me to use the very dark Black Iridium lens (which could be fitted and removed with no difficulty at all) on the two very cloudy days of my trip. Poor quality negates the very reason I bought these: the option of using lenses suited ideally to the light conditions without fiddling with frames that must be dismantled.
When I finished skiing on the last day I put unscratched goggles into a spare micro-fibre goggle bag and then packed them, in their case, into my pack. When I arrived home, in London, they were scratched.beyond use, leading me to conclude that the Black Iridium lens is excessively delicate. (The bag was not dirty and an identical one had housed my wife's goggles (of a different brand) without issue, in the same part of the same pack on the same trip.)
I would not recommend these under any circumstances and my opinion of Oakley's quality is so low I would strongly advise avoiding the brand entirely.

Are you sure they were not a fake? (I'd take them to an Oakley store to check/complain). The quality on everything Oakley has always impressed me and I have a number of their sun glasses as well as these goggles.
