Oakley's Pink Iridium

I had the chance to try a pair of splices with pink iridium and seriously, the best all purpose lens, EVER.

It works so great in low light, even really dense fog. There's something about the yellowish pinkish hue that just makes everything so clear. The iridium coating is just subtle enough to reduce glare from lights during night skiing but mirrored juuust enough to make it viable in bright sunlight. (and make you look cool )

Compared to the beloved blue sensor from Smith, I'd take this one any day. If anyone is looking for a one lens setup, or just deciding between lenses, this is the one. I've never bought into the whole fancy shmancy lens technology, and even though these aren't the highest end of lenses, I'm a believer.

I prefer the H.I. Yellow. It's been my go to lense for two seasons now. The only time I don't like using the H.I. Yellow is on the brightest of blue bird days. For those days I just use my A-Frames with the G30 Iridium.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Me too although I haven't tried the pink yet.
