Electric EG2's lens choice in the East Coast
Alright so i've been wearing EG2's for a couple years now. I ski Vermont every weekend for the most part. EG2's chrome lense that come stock with goggles is just way too polarized/chrome for 80 percent of winter days up here. I have the orange lense which is decent. Can anyone out there reccomend another color for flat light days/cloudy/snowy etc..?
I love my EG2's more than any goggle out there, but I feel like they should step their games up with lense variations.
I would probably suggest yellow, I personally have oakley crowbars, with the hi intensity yellow. But in Northern BC its usually cloudy and flat and they seem to work really well. I would suggest go to your dealer and try to look through the lens when the light is flat. You should be able to get an idea how well the yellow works.
Yeah the hi intensity lens is definitely the lens I need. I had the yellow a couple years back and it was almost too yellow, there was no balance in it, super sharp. But, I guess this is the closest lens that EG2 makes to be able to get what I am looking for. .. appreciate the response man.
what about that yellow chrome one? have you looked through that?
i picked up some clear/silver chrome through backcountry.com and they are the tits for low light/night skiing.
last time i checked bc.com had a few different varieties of eg2 lenses in stock, might wanna look there as well.
hmmm I never thought about the yellow chrome, or even the clear chrome too.. that makes a lot of sense though. I always figured that the chrome is always for sunny days, but maybe the chrome will bust through the low/flat light..
I have by far best looking EG2 custom out there (my opinion)
Their shape probably the best you can find since they look sick and don't limit vision.
However my seem to fog pretty often as for $180 goggles.
