yeah, oakley’s stuff slides from neat & original to completely butt-ugly. This unfortunately lands squarely on butt-ugly.

No need to worry about your iPod getting jacked with one of these. It looks like a damn cigarette case that some old biker dude would carry around. Didn’t these folks try and integrate glasses and an MP3 player? Guess it was time to jump on the bandwagon.

This case doesn’t quite scream “me too” as much as it whispers it while stifling a yawn.  Tear off that silly “flava” tag and you couldn’t tell it apart from a dozen other offerings.  The big O seems to be losing its “cool.”

Oakley is very big with law enforcement, Armed Forces, paramilitary, fire departments, and the like. On that note, this case will probably sell like hotcakes.

I hate pseudo technobabble on labels. Sorry Oakley.

Normally I love Oakley’s sensibilities. But I simply hate BS written on labels for the sake of have BS written on labels.
