I was thinking more of the overall size. Will either fit a head that can barley handle a deviation or inmate?

Can anybody tell me about the sizing on these? The Inmate and Deviation fit me very well, as I have a big head.

Anything smaller is a no go.

I haven't been this excited about a pair of Oakleys in a long time

Just bought the Home Office bag. I gotta say, it gives me hope for Oakleys future.

Build quality, materials, finish are all on pay with my 6 year old Kitchen Sink.

I'll bite. As far as the watermark being comically big in some of them, I had a deadline to meet and ran out of time to figure out why my software would make some watermarks huge and others normal size.

I'm with you Dann.

As a guy who only buys what he can wear (huge head, very little fits) I'll be depressed if those two don't fit.

The carbon blade is pretty cool as a concept. The overall look doesn't scream Oakley to me. The price is well out of range as too.

Were pretty lucky in Wisconsin. We have thousands of square miles of National Forest with hundreds of plowed forest roads. Nobody really spends time in the forests in winter. So it's pretty easy to just drive till you find a spot you like and pitch a tent.

Our two night camping we only saw three trucks. They just smiled and waved as they drove by.

If they ever came back with a limited release Casing, I'd buy two more pairs. I just went for a 3.5 mile walk in the snow, with air temp at -10. My feet were sweating the whole time.

Next up is another favorite. My 6 year old Kitchen Sink. This is how good it looks, even after 50,000 miles on my back while riding a motorcycle.

Two winters ago, I went to a Vault store and bought a pretty basic Vault Exclusive jacket. It was on sale for $100 and I liked how plain it was. It checks all my boxes, water proof, detachable hood, good looking and warm.

Also, Sadplant gloves and an Oakley beanie.

Then we have what I consider one of my favorite Oakley products. Its sadly been so long since I bought them, that I forgot what model they are. I've had them, and used them every year, for about 6-7 long Wisconsin winters.

Pair the boots with Oakley Performance Basic Crew woks. Mostly synthetic fabric, as cotton is a huge no-no.

The day after Christmas, a buddy and I are going to take his Jeep Wrangler on a little known trail called the TWAT (Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail). Since the temps are going to range from cold (10) to very cold (-15), staying warm while we tent camp is gravely important.

So what brand do I trust my (possibly, if things go very wrong) my life with? Oakley of course.

Figured I could add some fuel to the fire on what might be a slow Christmas eve news day.

The special edition GP-75 seemed appropriate, as they were designed with off roaders as an inspiration.

I really like the Throttle Switchlock case. But a guy at work has connections at a company with a laser burn table. For a 6 pack (which he, for some reason, didn't collect on) he would burn out anything we wanted.

Long story short:

The hardware I need is pretty specialized, and I don't feel like running around town to find it. So Im going to have to get it off the internet. I'll post a picture of it all assembled when I'm done.

The Scatter O.

Nowadays I only see it on goggles. I remember back in the day I'd at least see it on shirts and PR. What gives?

Does anybody know where I can download the Frogskin font?

My research points me to some form of Garamond. A thinner more stylistic version.
