I could use VR28 or Blue Iridium during the day right?
Look into the emerald iridium for days. I have both HI Yellow and Emerald Iridium, and i couldn't think of a better combo. Plus emerald still works for me with cloud cover if I don't feel like going to the car to switch lenses.

I looked at the Emerald Iridium but the VLT is 11% and the VR28 has 28%. I think that 28% would be better because its not super sunny all the time here and theres sometimes overcast and the 11% would be too dark? I think that VR50 Pink Iridium would be only for overcast not sunny? And you use HI Yellow for night?

Yeah, that is a pretty good combination.

Obviously, you want to cover the spectrum from bright light/bluebird to dark/night riding.
The HI yellow is just a great lens for low light, dusk, and even night riding - basically this thing should be in any 2 lens set-up.
The lens for the day depends a little bit: Out west I used to run a Fire Iridium/Black Iridium/similar because there are plenty of very bright bluebird days. Now with most of my riding in Japan (where there is typically a lot more cloud cover and fewer bluebird days) I have switched to something slightly brighter - VR50 Pink Iridium in my Airbrakes and Blue Iridium in my Crowbars. VR28 would also be a good choice.

Ok good to know. Would VR28 be inbetween Fire/Black Iridium and VR50?

Yes. As the name suggests, VR28 is 28% VLT...

Sorry that was a kinda stupid question. Would you recommend the blue iridium or the VR28? What's the difference between them?

Depends more on personal preference than anything else. Blue Iridium, VR28, G30, etc. are all good all-around lenses.

This is my old goggle. Can you tell me the approximate VLT and the tint? It was great for day and night.
