Best lens/color for cloudy day/flat light
Ive searched high and low for this and these where the contenders:
HI Blue or Yellow
HI Amber Polarized
VR28 (thread consensus on TGR forums)
I did read in a few places though that polarized exactly what you dont want on flat light days..
hi intensity for oakley.
idk what the smith lense is called, but its like persimmon with a blue coating on it as well, basically the smith version of high persimmon.
you want that high intensity coating, its what brings out the shadows and gives the snow some definition.
i also have found that pink iridium is not bad either.
Exactly. Clear is another great dark day lens if you want to save $30. I will ride Hi Yellow for the days it is dark and I am skiing powder, but if it's dark and I'm skiing park, then I'll just use my pink lens, especially if there is any chance of the sun poking through, because you're fucked if the sun comes through and you're wearing the hi yellow lens.
yeah, thats what turns me away from clear, and even hi yellow. its all great till the sun comes out, and then you are blind. hi persimmon and pink you dont have QUITE as much of the definition in the clouds, but you can still see if the sun comes out which is nice.
Exactly. Which luckily for me. I keep all of my goggles in my locker, so if the sun wants to torment me and attempt to blind me, I can make a run for it and grab another pair of goggles real quickly.
yeah i always bring spare pairs as well, but it sucks having to stop taking pow laps to go switch gogs.
Sensor Mirrors for Smith
HI Yellow for Oakley
like everyone else is saying HI yellow and persimmon by far the best.
I use Scott's Night Amplifier lens in all conditions. They are a light blue color.
and it looks the coolest......
i use a sensor mirror on my smiths.
I hear the Search Button provides pretty good clarity in low light conditions...
smith's sensor mirror lenses work wonders for me.
same...its a really dope all purpose lens
