Oakley Fuel Cells in freefall

Recommended Posts

So a recent thread got me thinking...I know Gatorz are the popular sunglass choice for skydiving, but I was wondering what other types of sunglasses people have worn. I have a pair of Oakley Ducati Fuel Cells which were pretty much made for motorcycle riding (http://www.oakley.com/pd/6440) and they fit my face pretty tight and was curious if they'd stay on in freefall. Any feedback?

I used to wear Gatorz, but my sweat is very acidic and eats the metal. The rivets rot out and the aluminum de-laminates.

So for the past two years I've been wearing Oakley Gascans. They have held up well and are my general "every day" and work sunglasses. The upside is that they're only $50 so its not too big of a deal to tear them up.

Meh. You have to be military or gov't employee to get the discount. I got really excited there for a minute.



Sure, "meh" if you're in the private sector making real money with bonuses and performance pay raises. If you're not, then its nice.

I think you have me confused with the average, salary-earning, bonus-getting, vacation-enjoying American.

How about 'meh', being a poor biology masters student, making just enough to pay my rent and car payment, which is literally, just above the poverty line for a one-person household. If it weren't for the famous Bill Dause and his $15 jump ticket, there's no way I could even afford to jump!

So 'meh', I'm envious of people who make more than me, then also get discounts I'm not eligible for!:P:P
