I recently purchased a pair of Oakley Crowbar Snow goggles with the persimmon lens. I was told persimmon was a good balance for night and day skiing, but when I skied with them at night, they were too dark for me. With that being said, I do happen to prefer a relatively bright view, so maybe they aren't too dark for other people.
I accidentally cracked the persimmon lens, so figured that was a good reason to go ahead and purchase a clear lens, as I've recently been doing more night skiing than day. I don't want to end up at the slopes and find that I don't have the proper equipment, so should I also purchase another lens for daytime skiing, or is it safe to use this clear lens when the sun is shining bright?
I imagine it isn't safe to use the clear lens on a sunny day, but under the clear lens on Oakley's website, it reads: "® ( ®) combines patented innovations with pure ® lens material to offer unbeatable clarity, and it maintains 100% UV filtering while providing unsurpassed impact protection."
Has anyone here tried using a clear lens on a sunny day; if so, what were the results?
Any other general feedback on this topic?
