    Decsions, decisions. Oakley radars or Flak Jackets, which to get.

    Having the hardest time deciding right now. I'm guessing I would never wear the radars off the bike with the exception of driving but they'd be awesome while riding, I also really like the fact that I can get the lenses with vents.

    The flak jackets I have right now and I do like them, just wondering if the radars would be better for road/cross

    plasma frames, vr28 lenses, polarized on the flak jackets, asian fit.

    I got the Radars a few months ago and they're perfect. Best glasses I've ever worn on the bike. And they're not too bad to wear off the bike, though I don't usually do that. Much better in that sense than the M-Frames.

    Their shadows are exactly the same. Therefore, either should work.

    I love my Flak Jackets personally. I've never been a fan of the full wrap lenses so don't really like the radars myself. But whatever works for you.

    For the answer, why don't you just p.m. John Henry directly.

    I have half jackets but I have a bit of a wide face so I really need a new pair. I got those off ebay for a good price so no complaints. Cool thing is I can get Oakely for half price because of govn't discounting. Not all of them but the ones that I am interested in so it works out.

    Does Oakley make varying sizes? My family is big-headed so all lot of glasses get uncomfortable on me pretty quickly. For the past several years I've been wearing a pair of Scott's and they are comfortable

    Thanks,

    not sure, I will say the half jackets fit rather tight on me, but the BottleCaps, Flak Jackets, and 5.0's are pretty good for my big fat head.
