Oakley Prizm Rose vs Prizm Hi-Pink

@rogg, I haven't seen the black but can confirm all the others are pink. Pink pink. But your brain sorts it out in about 30 seconds.

I'll see if I can take a piccie for you later.

Can anyone tell me what colour the prism lenses appear (when views from inside) - I'm looking at Hi Rose for low light and Prism Jade for more light. I tend to like amber/brown tones, but the Hi pink I assume is pink and the Jade a grey/pink from looking at promo info.

Anyone confirm what colour they turn your view?

They all have the same base lens, so they all have a pinky hue, the extent to which depends on their VLT....its like, as the VLT drops, the brightness of the Rose colour is dialed down, but is still obvious.

I found, the brain quickly adjusts for the effect, even on the Prizm Rose.

Ok, thanks. Pretty much what I thought.

A piccie would be great Mr Sideways.

I had a pair of graded mirrored pink sunnies in the 80s and seem to remember lying around on the beach thinking they were particularly enjoyable, so it'll be quite nostalgic.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Jade, counterintuitively is a pink hue, but you quickly adjust and its just normal.

I have Oakley Flightdecks with Jade and Rose prizm lenses. I prefer the Jade both from a look and a wear perspective. Rose comes out on those dull days......that said I used them in full sun and they were ok - not as great as the Jade obviously, but fine.

I thought all the main Prizm lenses were the same ultimately - just the coulour of the mirror was different. Hi Pink defintively seems to be a noticeable improvement in grey-flat light, based on the totally unscientific out the appt window test.

@Dave of the Marmottes, still a lot more scientific that a look at a picture online test though...... snowHead

I have the Prizm Jade and Rose lenses and also have the hi-yellow for the Canopy goggles. Maybe I should have bought the hi-pink lens but when wearing a-frames, the hi-yellow was the lens I'd always go for on the darker poor vis. days as it brightens everything up quite nicely.

Ooh the jade prism hides the shoddy roof work on the neighbour's place best - we should change our glazing.

Apologies for thread derail Very Happy

@Kelskii, I was very happy with the hi-yellow, but unfortunately I broke the blasted thing when it was in my pocket and I *might* have accidentally stacked it coming off the lift avoiding some berk who had stopped to take a selfie...
