So ive been looking for a pair of goggles that would be alot better in overcast conditions. Found these oakley persimmon goggs that looked pretty sweet.

So all ready to order it, turns out they dont ship a shit ton of their products to canada. Gahhh Who knew!

You guys do get screwed in Canaduh quite a bit from the retail perspective. Maybe it has to do with all of that killer terrain you have in the western part of the country. It could just be jealousy...

Well, I WAS about to offer to be the middleman of the transaction and save you a bundle. But you just had to be a dick, didn't you?

i always thought persimmon was more of an all-around lense. i know blue, yellow and rose work super well in overcast conditions.
