Lately a lot of people have been asking about which Oakley lenses they should purchase for sunny conditions or cloudy days or any other conditions. I figured if somebody made a guide it would keep the threads on the down low. These lenses I have reviewed I have either owned or still do own them. If you guys have a review for any Oakley lens, please post it up. It will make everything a lot easier and stop the clutter of threads during the season.
Great sunny day lens. Colors and snow become very vibrant and very clear. Very dark, so if you plan on skiing in anything but bluebird days, then i would go get something else. I know this from first hand experience. Nobody can see your eyes with this lens so not to worry there.
Again, Great sunny day lens, a little darker then the fire iridium IMO. again, if your not skiing bluebird all season, it will be hard to see in some conditions. people cannot see your eyes in any light condition, very dark.
Awesome all around lens, especially for snow and light snow. Very clear and crisp image and makes flat spots visible when visibility is not the best. IMO, it is worth the extra $$ for the polarized. One of my favorite lenses.
This is a true all around lens. Used for the dark/snowy/cloudy/foggy days. Awesome visibility in pretty much any condition. The sun can be a bit over powering with this lens, but it will work if your in a pinch and you need to use it for blue bird days. In dark conditions, it is hard for others to see your eyes, pretty reflective if thats what they call it. In brighter conditions, the lens opens up a bit and absorbs more light, thus making your eyes more visible.
Great lens for a cloudy day and snowy days. Awesome visibility in the worst of the snow storms. Opens up flat light. Some people use this as a night skiing lens and it seems to work for them. I personally use clear for that though. Would not recommend using the H.I yellow when the sun breaks through the clouds. Major headaches occur when you use this in bright light.
The only lens that performs really well at night. I have used this during snow as well and it was pretty good, but not as good as the pink iridium or H.I yellow. Did a good job of brightening up flat spots and everything was visible. Again, i would only use this as a night lens or very dark conditions.
AGAIN, I know a lot of kids on here use these goggles. Post up some reviews about the lens and how they performed. Hopefully this will inform lots of people and help them with a new lens decision.
Thanks In Advance.
