Von Zipper Feenom Goggles - Bonus Lens, What is it?

So im curious nobody actually states it on their site that i can tell...tried on the Feenoms today and they were comfy with my medium Hi-Fi helm so i may pull the trigger since theres still some sales..but i have no idea what the "Bonus" Lens is...i'd prefer to get one for night and one for day..so i need to know what the bonus one is so i can get the alternate..

orly? Thats great news because thats the lens i kinda wanted as it seems to be the general Persimmon style lens(assuming their VLT is equivilent to Oakley)...
So with those i am tending towards a lower VLT..like a Bronze Chrome for sunnier days?

I really prefer higher VLT goggles, so i am tempted to maybe even try the Yellow but it seems like they might overlap...we just dont have a lot of sunny days out here in Oregon as im sure you know...mostly overcast/foggy...and i plan to go up at night..so dont know if Blue would work for that?

I have both the bronze chrome (vlt = 9%) and the nightstalker blue (vlt = 60%) lenses on my feenoms. The bronze chrome is fantastic on blue bird days and has no glare and very good depth perception. The nightstalkers are great for night boarding and only okay in cloudy/overcast days. IMO, the nightstalkers do not cut out enough of the glare during cloudy/overcast days. I have an additional lens, the green chrome which I use for overcast/cloudy days.

Ok ...thats not bad..i typically like as i said brighter lenses, for whatever reason its better on my eyes and i can see more..which is why i use my Oakley Hi-Yellows nearly every day unless its bright as hell...

Sounds like ill do the Bronze Chrome and use the Nightstalker for everything else...i guess worst case i gotta spend 30 bucks on a yellow..but doubt it

Ended up finding and ordering a glossy black frame w/ Bronze Chrome + Bonus lens, found a decent deal from RememberDelaware. Thanks for all the help.
