    My son is about to buy his first pair of Frogskins and is torn between the Mesa Orange wtih Fire Iridium and the Aspen Green with Emerald Iridium lenses. He likes the green frames but isn't sure what the emerald lenses are like in person. Any thoughts about which lenses are nicer between emerald and fire iridium? Thank you.

    Emerald are a lot more subtly colored, not nearly as loud as Fire. Jade is the bright green lens from Oakley.

    Fire also has almost a blue hue to look through, Emerald is neutral.

    I prefer fire, but that's just me. The fire would stand out a little more to. They are both great lenses for different light conditions.

    My son really likes the Aspen Green frames so ended up choosing them over the Mesa Orange, plus the green ones were $7 cheaper. Great deal at $42.99 over at 6pm. The Pike's Gold with Fire Iridium are a steal at $39.99 as well. Thanks for the replies.
