    Thanks- I've tried both. Flying Ball don't carry 'em (they seem to carry Oakleys) and the distributor doesn't answer emails. I'll give 'em a call.

    Those are cool. I like the clip-on adapters for RX use. I wear Wiley X sunglasses (US military issue), but my optician couldn't get me tinted polycarbonate lenses for 'em. Rudy Project's Impact X stuff sounds even better.

    Ocean Optical in the shopping passage below Standard Chartered Bank (The Cascade or something) carries Rudy Project. Believe there is an outlet in Ocean Centre (TST), as well.

    Ah, great. Do you mean the big Standard Charted building on Queens Road in Central?

    Yes, the main office/Standard Chartered Bank Building (actually at 4-4A Des Voeux Road, Queen's Road is the "back entrance").

    Jay where do you buy your Wiley X sunglasses in Hong Kong? I have been looking for a pair of the tactical Sabers with the smoke grey lense.

    Got my XL-1s from a guy in the US right before he was shipped off to Germany. They are marked with an NSN#, which means they were issued to him by the government. Got 'em for about $40 US. Another $30 for the prescription lenses. Not bad eh?

    Actually, an NSN number only indicates that the product is a 'standardized material item of supply', i.e., that the same model is purchased by the United States Department of Defense. I believe that it does not say anything about the specific item at hand - all Wiley X tactical series sunglasses have NSN numbers, even if sold to the general public.
