Default Von Zipper feenom replacement lenses

I have a pair of von zipper feenoms and I was looking around for a lense that are good for low light/cloudy conditions, or yellow tint lenses from what I understand, anyway, I have looked around, and the only kinds of replacement lenses I have found for the feenom were basically these
Von Zipper Feenom Replacement Lenses - Snowboard Shop > Snowboard Goggles > Replacement Lenses

I don't see any yellow lenses there :/

Which lense in there would be best for low light/cloudy conditions?

EDIT: Quick question, are "Chrome" lenses "photochromic lenses" Or lenses that change according to the light? or in other words, the lens I should be getting?

I'm in the same boat... I have the bronze chrome lens on mine and I am debating which to buy also. If you look on the box for them on the back it has a breakdown of the available lenses and the amount of light they let in. Of those available outside of the Clear I believe the Smoke/Locust Chrome is the best one but I have to confirm...

I don't know if you bought lenses yet for these but RememberDelaware.com carries the best ski and snowboard products. has a much better selection. I spoke to someone there today and they suggested either the smoke pink chrome or the clear chrome orange if not going with a regular rose or yellow lens. I'm probably going go with the clear chrome orange myself

Replacement goggles for Von Zipper stuff is a bitch to find. Your best bet is to find a local shop that carrys VZ goggles and ask them to order the lense for you.

The Brown gradient lense is the best in cloudy and overcast conditions. If you are talking like super low light conditions (night or dusk) you would want to go yellow.

Yeah there lenses are impossible to find especially here on the east coast. I ended up going with Clear Chrome Orange over the Smoke Pink Mirror or whatever it's called. Now I'm debating whether hustling to find the hard case from them is worth it or if I should just buy the Dakine Goggle case that matches my bag!

Any store you can find locally that carrys von zipper sunglasses or any other von zipper products can order you whatever you need from them. We have a shop called Zumiez here that can order all there stuff. There stuff is prety hard to get without a special order from a local shop. Not much of an online company which is to some extent why I like them. You just don't see an overwhelming number of people wearing Von Zipper stuff which is what kind of makes them fun to own.

Ya dood all zumiez can order there stuff. You can also call Zumiez up and order anything you want from them over the phone. It usually takes a while to do it this way, but you can still get the stuff you want. I wouldn't worry about what goggle case you have as they all do the same shit. Von Zipper goggles are still my fav even though its a pain in the ass to get a hold of their stuff.

What kind of lenses are good for which conditions?

I usually go snowboarding in sunny weather in SoCal, but I also do night boarding. What's good for each one? Any recommendations on one for sunny weather and one for nights? I'm talking about lenses, not goggles.
