What tint goggle lens to get for a dark cloudy day?
I've been having trouble seeing the snow when its dark and cloudy day out or the sun has yet to rise. I'm looking to get new goggles that would allow me to "tint" the snow so it easier to see. Does anyone know which color lens I should be looking for?
ive used Oakley Permison (orange lense) for all conditions without any problems including flat/cloudy days.
Its only real downfall is in very bright conditions but its survivable.
If you want cloudy specific lense go for a light yellow coloured.
Check out the lens manufacturers' suggested uses for their products rather than focusing on color alone. Get one specifically designed for flat or low light conditions, such as the Smith Sensor Mirror.
I can attest to both of the lenses mentioned above, the Oakley Persimmon and Smith Sensor Mirror being awesome low light lenses. Clear is great if you can get by with it, but the Persimmon and Sensor allow you to deal with some sunlight, if need be. It'll be a matter of personal preference what you can "deal" with the sun comes out though.
Local hill usually has low light, flat, foggy, dark over cast, rain and whiteout puke...local riders = smith sensor mirrors. You can pretty much tell if they're tourist/gapers by their lenses...then they whine that they can't see.
I agree with the Sensor Mirror. Though it's the lens I've really ever used, I find it fantastic after mid-day. Especially in Toronto, it's ALWAYS cloudy in the winter (unless you get a brisk freezing day).
