If you can see sunshing throught the "Goats eye" they I put on my bluebird goggles. Otherwise, 99% of the time, I use the low light.


Good question.
Cheers man!
And you'll know from the m2 then that the lense is a pretty sturdy one, doesn't bend to fit pockets much.
Very helpful, so if you're caught out with the lowlight and it turns bluebird you just have to squint a little?

Your eyes will adjust with time, but I personally would want to see terrain as best as possible. Good luck.
So do you end up with lowlight lenses much of the time?
Yup, hip/chest/abdo is where they'd be stashed and I do ride park 50/50 so high fall rate (and the fact that I'm nooby).

As a beginner I had my friends iridium Oakley ones all the time and didn't realise how bad my vision was 95% of days!
