    Anywhere to get a deal on Oakley Eye Jackets?

    I had a pair of Oakley Eye Jackets. They got smashed. I vowed never to spend big bucks on shades again. But nothing I try fits as good as the oakley eye jackets. So I'm going to take the plunge. Anybody got a line on where I can get them at a decent price?

    Try Oakley customer service. In the past they have replaced busted glasses for a reasonable fee, new lenes and all.

    I got brand new polorized black eye jackets from ebay for $79 last year. Sunglass Hut sells them for $159.Start searching.

    yeah keep it in mind. I think it is $40-$60 to get a replacement pair from them. $20 gets you new frames with your old lenses. Great CS. Not sure which jackets you had but they no longer have the Eye Jackets. Now they are Eye Jackets 3.0 or something. Nothing like the originals.

    Oakley charges $22 to replace the broken frames, and you get a new bag, rubber pieces and the entire frame. You can find this replacement information on thier website.

    On ebay, be very wary of Oakleys, there are a lot of fake ones.

    COSTCO...yep, they carry grey market Oakleys. Genuine Oakleys from an unauthorized dealer are "grey market". About 40% off retail.
