    I'm wondering which polarized lenses, grey polarized and black iridium polarized, is the most versatile. Basically, one that has adequate glare protection but won't be too dark on overcast days or mornings. I heard that people can somewhat see your eyes through the grey polarized, though I personally don't care, as I care more about functionality and versatility.

    Well, I'm looking for a pair of neutral polarized lenses, hence the selection between grey polarized and black iridium polarized.

    If you're choosing between the two and don't want to be too dark for gloomy days go with grey polarized.

    On a bright sunny day, how significant is the difference between these two lenses? I know Oakley website has pictures, but I also want some first-hand accounts.

    In addition, which lenses would you recommend for snow environment, like skiing?

    The iridium/polarized combo really helps with glare.

    If you're looking for neutral transmission but not concerned about the outside look, Deep Blue Polarized is the same transmission as Grey Polarized but it has iridium so it handles glare better.
