If they're the same then then it's the "Persimmon" color. I know what a huge difference polarized lenses make when looking at reflections especially off of water and glass. How big of a benefit is it when using them in the snow?
It looks like a Persimmon lense to me. I appreciate having tinted lenses most during medium to bright conditions, and typically wear goggles in all conditions.

Also, you can sometimes find goggle replacement lenses at reduced cost on the Oakley Vault site: Oakley Sunglasses, Oakley Goggles, and Apparel - Oakley Vault

Are my 11 year old goggles up to par?

As the title states these are 11 years old but only have a few very light scratches on the lens. Has goggle tech advanced so much that a new pair would make a world of a difference? Back in the day these were top of the line $200+ Oakleys.
