Ashbury Goggle help

Anyone had any experiences with the Ashbury goggles ? my local store has them with a free bonus yellow lens.. the only problem there is there is no info on the lenses like how dark they are or how much light is transmitted.. the two that are offered are warlock and kaleidoscope so if anyone has wore them let me know how they hold up and how the two lenses work in dark and light conditions

I've been wearing mine since year one. Still my most comfortable goggles. The lenses are meh on mine, but they have since inproved. Whichever fit better go for themsz. Yellows are a low to night lense.

Haven't used Ashbury's yellow lens but I have used others and I really like them. Not too dark, add definition to low/flat light and since you are in Ontario too keep the icy wind out of your eyes.

Lots in Breck too which is where I started using them when I worked there. They're a decent stamped lense goggle. If optics is a big deal for you you're better off with Dragon, Oakley, or Smith and dropping on sphericals. If not, Airblasters and Ashbury's are my favorites, honestly just because they're more conformable than anything else.

I love my Ashburys, got the ones that had clear, yellow and tint lenses in a double jelly donut bonus pack. The shop was buddies with the rep apparently and got an extra clear thrown in on top of the other two.

The yellow lens are good under lights for night riding. Certainly no complaints here. Comfortable is right on, dope goggles and feel pretty quality to me
