I wore my Hi-Yellow on an overcast Oregon day at hood(like it is 90% of the winter) and they are great. IMO, either the hi-yellow or pink iridiums are great for Oregon/Washington mountain conditions. I have a pair of black iridiums too and have only used them a few times in the spring

But are they THAT much better than Persimmon, which i have now, is the important $70 question
Looking through the lens in a store just doesnt really tell you anything.

If you wait around long enough, SAC will put the Hi-yellow A-frames up again. I picked up my for~$50 shipped, and no need to change lenses.
I notice the difference enough between my hi-yellows and pink iridiums(similar light transmittance to the persimmons) that I bring both on overcast days and decide when I get to the mountain which pair to wear. You get ~20% more light with the Hi-yellows, and they double as a night lens also, where the persimmons don't work at all at night IMO.

The black iridiums are pretty dark. I only use them on sunny days usually in the spring in Oregon/Washington, not a good all around lens at all.
