Unfortunately with them being new lenses for snow, there aren't many on snow reviews yet.
Here's my totally scientific way of judging these without actually leaving the house (and having to put on my contacts). I directly stared at the following light through each lens and noted how much pain I was in:
The above is the Red Sensor, but because this is just an iphone photo it's not really indicative of much.
So... here's what I note:
Green SolX2: No pain or discomfort, really. A bit of afterimage when I stop staring.
Chromapop Everyday: No pain but a bit uncomfortable. Definitely an afterimage
Ignitor Mirror: A bit of pain and discomfort but not too bad.
Red Sensor: Quite painful, couldn't look for as long.
In other words, confirming what the VLT's would indicate, the Chromapop Everyday is much closer to replacing a SolX than a Sensor. I'd still say the SolX is something worthwhile to have in your quiver if you ski bluebird days out of the trees (e.g. glaciers, above tree line) as the Green SolX is really good for that, but even then I doubt you'd suffer too much. But I think that while your Chromapop Everyday might be able to take you into more cloudiness and shadows, the Sensors will still play a huge role in anyone's lens collection unless you avoid storm days.
To put it more succinctly: my brief experiment showed the EveryDay overlaps quite a bit more with a SolX's range than it does with the Sensor's.
Repeating that I haven't actually used these EveryDay lenses yet, if I were to suggest to someone buying the new goggles rather than just a replacement lens, I'd go Storm+EveryDay as that'll give comfort and optimal vision in what appears to be 90% of the likely spectrum encountered.
