    what oakley lenses do you use?

    Thinking about getting some Oakley Radar Lock Path. They come with two lenses but I'll probably go the custom route so i can get the best lenses that suit my needs. For you Oakley users out there. What is your experience with photochromatic lenses? What lenses do you recommend for trails that take you from sun to shady areas? How about for under the sun road conditions?

    On that note, I have a brand new pair of Oakley Half Jackets in white/violet iridium. Wore them around the block and realized these suck for contact lens wearers. PM me if interested.

    I'm using photochromic too. But I'm looking for something more colorful such as Positive Red Iridium or Jade Iridium.

    G40 photochromic. Work in all conditions. Really show their uselessness at this time of year. Start the ride during full daylight, end on the dark with a light. Never have to fiddle with the glasses start to end. Contrast is very good in low light.

    Curious about why you found half jackets bad with contacts? Can pick up pair with polychromatic lenses for $40 off and was tempted, but...
