    To make a long story short, I'm about to buy a polarized Gascan and a non polarized Gascan flag just so I can swap the lenses and have a polarized Gascan flag. Prices on SI are such that I can afford the indulgence. I'm wondering if the lenses are swappable at home or am I going to break the frame. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Swapping is quite easy.

    oakster is very much correct...pop out, pop in. No trick to it other than start from the inside upper corner to remove, and start from the outside edge working to the inside corner for installation. If you have an extra SI bag you want to sell/trade, I am VERY interested since they pulled em from the SI site...

    Why don't you just swap the lenses?

    I would just swap the lenses but they are on back order on SI. Complete polarized set on the site just a few dollars more than the lenses at the store.

    Mission accomplished and "spare" pair (non-polarized left overs) sold on ebay. I decided to go with Fuel Cells instead of Gascans because of frame size. Worked just like Dr. Chop and Oakster described. Lens swap took all of 5 minutes, and thats with cleaning.
