Yup, hip/chest/abdo is where they'd be stashed and I do ride park 50/50 so high fall rate (and the fact that I'm nooby).

As a beginner I had my friends iridium Oakley ones all the time and didn't realise how bad my vision was 95% of days!
I have been working nights for the last 6 years and I work under office lights and stare at multiple computer monitors during the night and thus my vision has suffered. In Bend I need lenses for white out and flat light close to 75% of the time I'm riding. More so, it can go from white out, to clear in the trees and the slight tint change is amazing on the photochromic. I do also have their low light which I wear on the rare mid season occasions and a lot during the spring. Hi persimmon and hi yellow just didn't give me enough terrain detail for what I needed.

Nope, Fraid not. Similar to discussed above, would be 30-60mins out of my days to change lenses if I did it that way. Would be awesome to just leave them in the car.

Maybe, check it out outside the window/forecasts.

1) more cloudy than sunny on the whole: lowlight
2) more sunny ( higher chance of sun). Solex

Not if you have to buy a new lens. I understand though. Enjoy.

Chamonix and les deux alpes, France!
Can't wait now. Apparently the second resort has a badass park.

Oh to be American/Canadian and live near a hill.

I keep looking at the greybird M2 lense options for an extra, the ones are mine are two extremes of the spectrum... Meh they work well and hopefully end of season i can snag an extra lens on sale.

Aye I thought the same.
Something middle of the line like a 50% VLT would be more versatile I thinks.
