What's going on, gentleman? Brand new member here posting for the first time. I've got a couple questions and figured there wouldn't be anyone better to ask than the Oakley experts here at the Oakley Forum. I've been lurking the last couple weeks trying to find the answers I need without having to sign-up and start a new thread, thinking these may be fairly common questions, but the answers I found weren't exactly clear and didn't directly address my two concerns. I recently purchased a pair of standard Gas Can's and love them. They're Matte Black frames with Black Iridium polarized lenses. In fact, I liked them so much that I decided two days later to pick up a set of the Standard Issue Gas Can's. I bought the Desert Sage cerakoted frames, paired with the Tungsten Iridium non-polarized lenses. Trust me, if they would've been available at the time, I would have MUCH preferred the polarized lenses to the non-polarized lenses, but I grabbed what I could get at the time, thinking it wouldn't be a problem to place an order through Oakley for a set of Tungsten Iridium polarized replacement lenses. If I'm spending decent money on quality eyewear, I want polarized lenses. Just my personal preference. Anyway, waited until the holiday passed, and contacted Oakley yesterday with the intention of placing an order for the Tungsten Iridium polarized lenses in order to swap out the non-polarized lenses in the SI Gas Can's. Unfortunately, to my surprise and disappointment, Oakley won't sell me the TIP lenses separately! Of course, I asked the representative why not, since they're offered by Oakley in the Desert Sage SI Gas Can's, so it's not like I'm asking for something unique, unusual, or discontinued, and his answer was short and to the point. "Because we just don't offer them separately from the glasses." At this point I'm kinda pissed, because had I known this from the get-go, I would've gladly just waited, albeit very impatiently, for the Desert Sage TIP SI Gas Can's to become available again. So, there's the back story on my predicament. Now onto my two questions. I'm stuck looking at aftermarket polarized replacement lenses and I need to know your opinion on the Ikon Gas Can replacement lenses. According to everything they claim, they're very high quality replacements, but of course they're going to make those claims. After all, they are trying to sell their own product! Reviews, for the most part, seem to be very good, but not everyone knows exactly what to look for in a high quality lens, so I'll have much more faith in what you guys have to say about them than some dude posting a review on Amazon. Also, if there's a better alternative out there to the Ikon's, I'm all ears! Second question is, I obviously want a lense as close as possible to the Tungsten Iridium's that came with this pair, just in a polarized variant. Looking specifically at Ikon, I was thinking either the 24K Gold Mirror or the Brown/Bronze. Aside from obviously wanting them to match well with the Desert Sage cerakoted frames, I also prefer lenses that hide my eyes from the outside looking in. In my line of work, it's always an added benefit if others can't tell what you're looking at. That's one thing I absolutely love about the BIP lenses in my Matte Black frames, is that they cannot be seen through by others. I also understand that with a brownish colored lens like Ikon Brown/Bronze, this may not be possible since I don't believe they have that mirrored outside coating, but it looks like the Ikon 24K Gold Mirror lenses do have this feature, so that's why I included those as a possible option. If I'm way off base with anything here, including looking specifically at Ikon replacements, please let me know. Also, if there's a way for me to aquire a set of Oakley Tungsten Iridium polarized lenses, PLEASE let me know. Thanks in advance for any help or opinions you guys can offer me. I know most of you here are probably MUCH more knowledgeable on this particular subject than myself! ETA: Also, can any of you expert Oakley guru's tell me why they offer these lenses with the glasses, but not separately? Is this a common practice with some of their lenses? Seems like they're missing out on possible sales opportunities.
