    Hi All,

    I'm after a bit of advice please.
    I'm wanting some Radar paths for a sking trip, and also for cricket during the season.
    Now I understand that for highlighting the red ball, against the green background, that VR28 is best?
    Should this be in a polarised version for best effect, and is it possible to have in a pholtvatic, polarised version, or am I talking nonsense. Also would like vented lenses.

    Onto the sking, I guess any dark lense will be ok?

    Interested in your thoughts please

    Sorry for the delay in a response. Welcome to the forum!

    I'm not sure personally of the best answer to that question but I think this link will be a great place to start.: Oakley Sunglass Lens Tint | Oakley.com

    For skiing you definitely want polarized. Tint can be something that can easily be a personal choice too. Hope that link helps as a starting point.

    Depending on the sun and general weather on where you live, you might want to be different lenses for skiing on the slopes and batting on the pitch...

    I'd say give Fire pol for the slopes


    Check out G30 pol or VR28 or even VR28 black for he pitch...

    If you have an IOS device there's a great Oakley app that simulates lense pints even better than the web site

    If the ball is red the VR28-base lenses will be a great option.

    VR28, Blue Iridium, VR28 Black Iridium, VR28 Black Iridium Polarized.

    The same tint will help for skiing, but you generally want to stay as light as possible. Yellow or Persimmon for hazy days or low light, medium contrast for cloudy days (bright, but no sun), contrast polarized for sunny days.
