How is the oakley persimmon as an all round lens?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,
Just picked up some oakley crowbars at a bargain price, they came with a persimmon lens. I understand that this is a low light lens with a vlt around 60%- does anyone have any ideas as to how this will perform as an all round lens for all conditions??

They're just OK. For "all conditions"? Best for low(er) light, not really intended for bright light.

 

The High Intensity Persimmon is much better, and the High Intensity Yellow are much better again.

I mean using it as an all round lens? Are they alrightish when coming from a very cheap goggle?

They're all right, better than a very cheap goggle. Good contrast, good optically, bit more transmission than I like (have blue eyes, YMMV) and much prefer polarized lenses (YMMV).

Okay that's good, I decided to get a dark grey lens as well for the higher light

For the price of a decent Oakley high-light lens you can probably pick up a pair of Smith I/O's which would have both lenses included.

 

Check out ebay and a bunch of the ski shop sites. Off season they can be found for $70-$90.
