    VR28 looks very transparent from what I can see, almost as much as bronze is, does it darken up much? Talking about plain VR28 not Vr28 w/black iridium

    It is a cool lens but probably not for bright light situations...lighter than bronze i would say..

    Not sure what you mean by "Darken up". It's a 28% lens, so it's going to be a lot brighter to look through than most of the standard dark colors.

    They're still sunglasses, and the added contrast is nice.

    It's not a transition so it stays the same ltf when it comes into contact with light.

    VR-28 is an awesome lens, I have them in my 1st Gen. Ti-O2 Juliet's. Doesn't darken colours too much and isn't as strong as say the bronze. When people say its no good for bright light, I tend to disagree. It kinda softens/cools everything a little and is obviously better than no sunglasses at all. Of course, there are better lenses suited specifically for bright conditions, but I find the VR-28 a pleasure to wear!

    Can you see a person's eyes behind the lense? I always think sunglasses look strange when I can see through them

    They are a little reflective at certain angles, and not so at others. Generally you can see the wearer's eyes tho. Just depends on the lighting/angles etc. Definitely not a pair for perving lol
