Oakley has an issue

This review is for all A-Frame lenses.
I've come to the conclusion that there is an issue with the foam lens sandwich in all A-Frame lenses. I have had an issue with the foam in between the 2 lenses getting a crack in it letting moisture in which causes a terrible, unfixable, fogging issue in every A-Frame lens I have owned. I am fed up with it and am looking to get new non Oakley goggles soon. Sad really as I had loved the A-Frames up until this last straw. Oakley has been good at replacing the defective lens in the past, but every season I end up needing to send one of my lenses in for warranty.. really?!? Oh and even though the outside of the lens does a great job of resisting scratches.. however the inside does no job at all in resisting scratching.. i.e. only wipe the inside with a clean baby bum.

The optics are great, the tint choices are great (especially FIRE), but this issue makes all that greatness.. well.. useless!

Here I am on this site to purchase another replacement lens due to the same issues you have described. This would have been my third replacement lens, but I'll choose to look for a different goggle instead. Fogging of the lenses, and one wreck is all it takes to get scratches on the inside of the lens that will never go away.

Corey, that's funny because I replaced my A-frames with the Smith IO googles (which I love). The A-frames have now been reduced to backup duty.
