    Just picked up some Ruby lenses for my Half Jackets.

    The frame isn't new and i already have the Ice and Emerald Iridium lenses for them. Picked them up as a OCP set while on vacation in Oahu a few years ago.

    The Ruby isn't that deep red with dark purple hues. It actually looks more like a Fire Iridium that's more red than orange, but i'm still happy with them for a $30 CL find. The lenses were claimed to be BNIB, but each lens has a very small hairline scratch that's not noticeable unless you're really looking for them. Probably got scratched during handling. Again, i couldn't pass it up for the price.

    Nice pick up Damon. Ruby lenses are just damn sexy! Hairline scratch or not, good pickup for $30.

    @jiveSEVEN - Yup, like i was telling you, i couldn't pass it up for the price.

    @the piper - Weren't you still looking for Half-Jackets a while back? Was this the pair you ended up getting?

    @JOBEN - Thanks!

    @Oakleynerd - I've had the frame for a while with the Ice and Emerald. While they were cool, the colors never really popped. As soon as the Ruby's went in, i fell in love. I usually rotate my glasses on a daily basis, but i've worn these two days in a row now and plan to keep wearing them. They look AWESOME in the sunlight!

    great find at 30 bucks!!... and i feel HJs work best with XLJ lenses... the regular lenses are just too small...

    Yah, i never even bothered with the regular lenses. I do see a lot of women who wear HJ's buy the regular lenses.
