Default Anon Hawkeye Lenses

Hey guys im looking into buying a lens that works great at night. Yesterday was my first day boarding and i absolutely love my anon hawk-eyes but i have them in Dark Smoke (kick ass btw). But as soon as the sun went down and it got dark i took them off. So im looking for a spare set that will work good in low light/night conditions. My options are,

-amber
-yellow
-clear

any suggestions on what is better?
Thanks, Luis.

In my experience, Amber and Clear and felt most comfy for night riding.

yeah i figured clear would be my best bet but i know that on occasional sunny/cloudy days then a tinted one would be best. As long as i can confirm amber/yellow are not to dark at night then i'll go with that. Thanks for the input, gonna check out those ambers.

yellow is my favorite for night riding

the problem I have with clear is that they do nothing to reduce glare or help create depth

If you don't like plain yellow, try blue lagoon or red ice.

I wear solaces but I love my yellow for low-light/overcast conditions. Works really well to allow you to see the contours in the snow and still lets a lot of light through.

I know this is a review for the Helix, but the amber lense will work the same in either model.

Dumb question-

If I put in a replacement lens, can I pop in the original one when I want or is it a one-time swap kinda thing?
