The fire iridium lens is great for sunny days but not so good on overcast days.

Oakley has a guide on their lenses. I used those to pick lenses.

I think the Fire Iridium increases contrast while the Black Iridium is neutral, so all things being equal, I'd go with Fire Iridium. I think they're both mostly bright sunny day lenses though.

For all-around Oakley lenses, definitely check out their Pink Iridiums or Emerald Iridiums. Personally I rock Pink Iridiums as my all-around lens for my A-Frames

Second this, although I actually used my black iridium lenses at night the other day and it wasn't too bad, but the runs were pretty well lit.
