On super bright bluebird days the yellow isn't perfect but you can get by with it, and otherwise I find its the best lense. If I'm expecting very sunny conditions I go with a brown lense otherwise I go yellow.
I'd say I use the yellow lense 75 per cent of the time that I wear goggles.
I also have a pair of oakley switchlock wraparound sunglasses with a yellow lense and a brown lense.
I put the opposite color lense in the sunglasses and carry those.
On the rare Bluebird day at Whistler for example I will wear the airbrake goggles with dark lense till the end of the day and then as the light goes flat in the seting sun my last part of the day I wear the sunglasses with the yellow lense. More commonly I have the yellow lense in the goggles and if there is really bright sun I pull out the sunglasses with the dark lense.
Personally I think that lense choice for bright light doesn't matter, any darkish tint will do. In the marginal light (which is most days for me) that yellow lense is key.
One other thing, persimmon is too dark, I have it and it is a good choice for a one lense setup but yellow or the pink are true low light lenses.
