    Visited my local Sport Chek for some bike shorts. I left with these two instead.

    Got the Ten matte black, warm grey lense for $40CAD

    And the Pit Bull Clear Brown, dark Bronze lense for $54CAD. Not my first choice in colour ways, but I can use these as dedicated work eye protection.

    I think it's a great little haul!

    Yeah they both fit my face pretty well.

    I'm a little confused about the lens colour a though. The Ten has a bit of a contrast, you can see in the pic. And the Pit Bull is more grey. Anyone can clarify?

    Ah ok, yeah I like the warmth.

    The Pit Bull is kinda throwing me off. O-review say they are Dark Bronze, but they seem more grey, maybe it's just me.

    They look like dark grey, not dark bronze.

    I'm not a fan of warm grey. It's a dark lens, but with no iridium or polarized the glare isn't reduced much, so in bright light I don't like them. And they're too dark to wear like you would normal grey.

    That's a great price you paid for both for sure. Not that many loonies and toonies eh? :biggrin:

    Yes you are correct, it's a dark grey on the Pit Bull.

    I only wore the warm grey lens for a short drive home from the store. I liked them, darkens light enough, but also "enhances" the view. The only down side, is the lack of iridium and polarization, but I couldn't pass up on the price.

    I had the normal grey, but again, would be nice with iridium. I ended up swapping them for BIP and I'm pretty happy with them.

    I'm going to start looking for some new lenses too.

    The online Vault had Ten lenses for a long time, might still. My three Tens are VR28BIP, BIP, and grey polar.
