Amber Black Iridium
Damn, been climbing in the VR28 Oakley lens for ever...problem is I broke both pair of my full metal jacket VR28s on climbing outing within a month of each other and had been climbing in these same two pair for years. Of course Oakley can't stand to keep a good thing going, so no more Full Metal Jacket which I prefer....worse thing was finding a reasonable small Oakley design with polarized lens that was any good for climbing. Most lens tints are way to dark and don't function well in corners and shade when on the rock. That VR28 was the ticket until I found these Amber Black Iridium. Tremendous contrast which is a must when climbing and scouting out the smallest of features. Cheers.

G-30 Lenses
I use these glasses and have switched to the G30 lens for them.
The G30 fits my need for an all around lens. Awesome in snow and rain, overcast, and in bright sun they cut the glare enough to make me happy. They are lighter than the amber lenses by a small amount and these also increase contrast and brilliance of your environment to a new level. They are a weird color, but unlike other colored lenses, the G30's dont make you feel like you are looking through a colored filter, instead you adjust to them rather quickly. Perfect lens in my book.....worth a try.
