All polycarbonate lenses have an index of 1.59 or higher. 1.6 really isn't considered a hi-index lens these days, though they technically are so you are correct. The crizal lenses in my chisels are 1.74 index and are about 2/3 as thick as an Oakley equivalent, and for me that's allot since my eyes are pretty messed up. :)

I purchased my frames from the pleasanton vault store, and had the lenses cut by a local optomatrist who is also an OPD and received them in perfect condition.

I dont think I would go through anyone but an OPD for such an expensive purchase.

I opted for Crizal-Alize lenses, because the oakley lenses are not available in hi-index.

No problems here, I wear polarized gascans daily

I got NOTHING hahaha, and I gave away my brown tortoise / bronze Monster Dogs.

Haha nope, just poking fun at anyone who thinks one is clearly better than the other.

Everyone knows snowboarders are all knuckle dragging cretins, and skiers are all 70+ year old with neon one-piece suits :)

Haha yah, skiers really need to man up :)

Remember folks. snowboarding is the ray-ban of winter sports

j/k no hate here, just gotta defend my sport

The stockholm is a nice design, but it is VERY small, smaller than the A-Frame. If you have a big head or wear a helmet it absolutly will NOT fit you.

Crowbars are still my favorite. I wish they would release a larger A-Frame strap.

Guess that officially makes the stockholm unisex :)

I'm a little bummed, just called my local vault to check on the availability of polarized crowbars and was told they would not be stocking them in the stores at all.

I'm from the SF bay area, so I'm close to a good number of vaults, as well as my local OPD.

Normally I use an essilor lens cloth which is much nicer than the Oakley bags, but its getting greasy too which is why I asked about cleaning.

I suppose I should just go bug my OPD for a bunch of essilor cloths since I spent well over a grand there in a single day, but I do want to keep my bags looking nice and usable for cleaning as well.

Thanks again for all the comments!

Thanks for the tips!

Sorry if this has been covered before.

I see a lot of threads asking about lens and frame care, but I'm interested in how you guys and gals keep your microbags clean and ready to clean?

Most of my O stuff is stored in a closet and the bags dont see much cleaning duty, but the frames I wear on a regular basis, RX gascans and chisels are cleaned daily and the bags and microfiber cloths I use are getting pretty greasy.

Do you just run everything through the washing machine? hand wash? tell me your secrets :)

Noticed they put up a custom gascan section

with a new frame color "metallic black"

Also forgot to add after a bit more research, most "Blue Topaz" is created in a lab by radiating colorless topaz. So it wouldn't really be authentic :)

I think it could be really cool, maybe somthing like a cross between fire and gold iridium, without the green edges associated with fire.

Found a good quote here

"Topaz is a common gemstone that has been used for centuries as jewelry. The stone is one of the hardest minerals, and is the hardest silicate mineral found in nature. A silicate of aluminum, topaz contains about 20 percent water and fluorine. The relative proportions of these impurities are responsible for the color of the stones. Crystals with more water are yellow to brown, while those with more fluorine are typically blue or colorless. The most popular color is a rich orange-yellow, resembling the color of sherry wine."

isn't most topaz somewhat amber/gold in color? I did a quick google search and found Topaz, and Blue Topaz. So I'm assuming "Topaz" would be more yellow.

Wow crazy design on the corkscrew. I'm liking the bottlerocket alot but not diggin the doubledown so much.
Sep 2, 2006 12:53 AM
I know its stupid to ask since there really isnt any information yet, but any chance topaz will make its way onto the RX lens lineup? I would love to see somthing like a cross between bronze and gold iridium.

I know the lens transmission profiles for the goggles are different then the standard eyewear. Also the A-Frame, Wisdom, and Snow Crowbar use a dual lens system, which might be causing some strange reflections or tinting when you look through it from the outside.

Canon digital, bounced flash, 17 - 40mm lens and 100mm macro, no tripod, but it would help. Using a small white box or even just white paper would help a lot as well.
