I think I have to change my vote. When I started this thread many years ago, I really did dig the Soviet Gascan, and I still do. At the time, it was the only olive-drab colorway that Oakley had released. I like the olive cerakote Gascan better than the Soviet, as I'm not afraid that I'll destroy a limited release.

However, my new favorite, and my go-to for the past 8 months has been the New Canteen, in polished black with black iridium polarized lenses. Dann, in His infinite wisdom and goodness, saw fit to bless my poor soul with one of his pre-release review pairs. It is a solid piece that has amazing coverage, large lenses, is both conservative in appearance and radical in design. It could easily have been called the New Topcoat, and I wouldn't have thought twice about the name.

The only issues that the New Canteen has are that it was/is a Sunglass Hut exclusive, and that is only has 5 arguably boring colorways. These issues spell doom for the model, as it will probably never have a cult following like the Zero, M-Frame, etc lines, but it's easily as wearable as both a daily-use model and as an eye-catching piece, specifically the Ferrari colorway.

If you haven't had the privilege of trying them out, do yourself the favor. I tried them based on Dann's insistence, and they have eclipsed the rest of my collection as a good, solid sunglass.

My all-time favorite oakley's I think are the m frame. They have great fit with the unobtanium which makes them versatile; along with many lens colors to adapt to any lighting condition. Many lens styles so they fit practically any face shape. The field of view is practically unobstructed being a shield lens.
