    Can’t help but think about Oakley’s experience with Luxottica.

    So I got in on the first “beta” use of these. They are amazing. The case they come with is probably the second best part. Oakleys come with a bag no protection. Yet the vortex ones come with a hard case. Way better than a soft bag. They also come with a glasses cleaning rag that is better than a bag that has been exposed to all the elements and beat up in a glove box or center console scratching the lenses with small particulates.

      Odd, every oakley I’ve gotten has come with a hard case as well as the microfiber bag. Perhaps it’s dependant on model?
