Question about Oakley A Frame googles and Oakley goggle cases

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I was at the Oakley store today and turns out that the A Frame fits the best.

 

Does anyone know if the A Frame will fit in the wisdom goggle soft vault 07-048?  How about the universal soft goggle case 08-011?

Not sure if it'll fit or not, but I can say that my Oakley goggle case is a POS... the zipper busted on it after about a week.  Love the goggles, however.

I like the microfiber bag that came with mine.  For protection when I'm not skiing, I put them inside my helmet.

I ended ordering universal soft goggle case 08-011 directly from Oakley since the local Oakley store doesn't carry it.

Be careful with that zipper.  I currently still use mine but it requires a rubberband.

Smith makes a semi-hard case for their goggles - if it's not overly bulky for your needs.  It's very well vented, and has storage for up to two (I believe) extra lenses when the light changes.  For any Epic members, I can get you set up for about 30% less than MRSP if you happen to be near the shop.  The fit should work fine with any O gog I would expect.  Just mention the site here if you come by.  Here's to a great season!

I have a variety of goggles but only 1 style of hard case: a green plastic box that comes with baby wipes.  The little extra lid on top can be left open a touch for venting. They stack in the ski bag if you are like me and carry more than one. And it is impossible to beat the price. Just keep the goggles in the little microfiber bags.

Shoot...I should have look at other companies like Smith, Scott, etc to see if they make cases before ordering the Oakley.

 

Oh well...too late now...unless I can cancel my Oakley order tomorrow? hmm..

I use the same plastic cases that protect my Dive Masks, which can be ordered from leisure pro for around $7 (First Link)

They also carry a durable Cordura bag for around $13

Not sure if thats what you had in mind, but may be worth a look.

 

Btw, I put my Oakley A Frames in the plastic ones.

Target - Ziploc Large Bowl - 2 for $2.64. Fit goggles perfectly, and they're tough.

I'm actually in the Prairies of Western Canada.  Only if we have a lot more selection and better pricing up here!

 

What's your specialty anyhow?

Nationally certified optician, currently working with a small optometric group here in Utah.   I've spent many years in both custom wrap sunwear Rx, and digital lens optimization.  Prior to dispensing, I was at our local planetarium, working in the education dept.  We did all sorts of optics related courses and presentations, star and laser shows, and telescope making/optics instruction.  Good times!  If you're ever down this way, do stop by.  smile.gif

Just an update: I recd the Oakley case the past Fri.  Not what I expected.  Too flimsy.  It's not rigid at all.

 

I found a local store that sells the Smith case.  It's not super rigid per say like your regular glasses case but I think it's better than the Oakley's.  The store also has the Dakine.  The rigidity of the Dakine falls between the Oakley and the Smith.  I ended up buying the Smith.  Going to return the Oakley.

 

Thanks for the tip.
