Oakley lense tint question?
Can anyone compare the most common Oakley sunglass tint (standard on gascans, sideways, ect), grey (18% light emission), to the goggle tint dark grey(17% emission)?
Reason I ask is I am a big sunglass fan and while it is the most basic, those lenses have always been my favorite shade out of all the others. I always have trouble finding goggles I like, they are usually too dark or too orange.
Right now I am using a pair of cheap bolle' goggles with a clear/light blue lense while my expensive pairs collect dust. Contemplating getting just a clear pair. Any suggestions?
I'm a little confused on the question. But if you are askin how similar 17 and 18 percent light emission are, it's virtually unnoticeable
even when you get to like 13 or 14 its still not even that huge of a change

Basically, for someone who owns both the sunglass lens and the goggle lenses mentioned above, to compare the two.
Or a recommendation for a good almost-clear lens in a goggle.
Sunglass Grey lens is the same as the Dark Grey lens for snow goggles. They make a "Dark" Grey lens for the sunglasses as well that's even darker than the standard Grey (~10% VLT), but only one variation of Grey is available for snow goggles.
As for a lens similar to clear, the HI Yellow is great because it not only lets in a lot of light but also has a reflective finish and enhances the contrast of the snow on low light days.
Thanks so much. Just wanted to make sure before I purchased.
As for the yellow HI, I used to use on in my paintball mask. It was nice for certain situations but when I switched it out I didn't want to go back. Not sure how I would like it on the snow, I had a yellow lens scott goggle when I was younger and I felt it hid some of the snow stashes and bumps in the shadows.
Try on a pair of Oakleys with the HI Yellow at a local shop if you get a chance. It's actually a lot different than the standard Yellow lens, and the closest you will find to the Clear lens in terms of VLT. The Pink Iridium used to be great for low light until Oakley changed it, now it's significantly darker and not the best for night/flat light skiing.
^troof. Pink Iridium > vr50 pink iridium.
Might get the venom proframes, so OG. Reminds me of the PB scene
