First use was in a snowy icy day up on the mountain and aside from a thin layer of ice forming on the outer lens (turned to whiteout conditions)they worked great. Next use on a beautiful sunny day and again they worked great.
A little colorful for my liking but my wife says it makes me easier to pick out of the crowds.

They are mirrored and darkly tinted. They will be very nice on a bright sunny day. I would not recommend them for cloudy days or early season days when the sun is low in the sky. For a lighter lens try the Smith Sensor.

Two of the models have the Gold Ionized lens color - which is best described as an amber color. This lens has 20%-25% light transmission (Tweed/Gold Ionized and Shocking/Gold Ionized). The third version (Recluse W/Ionized) is a light gray/almost clear lens. This would be best for low light conditions - stormy, night skiing, etc. I would go for either that have the Gold Ionized lens. They should be a good fit for what you do.
