    +red iridium can also be polarized. The difference is the base lens tint. The OO red iridium polarized is on a g40 base lens I think which is suppose to help while looking at lcd screens and such.

    good for beach, bright sunny days? I have G30 non polarized for golf but want a 2nd lens choice for other outdoor activities. polarized of course and like the red color against my matte black frame.

    Imo, +red is a much better lens

    The performance is each to their own. OO Red is polarized, cuts blues better, and has a lighter tint.

    Positive Red is darker, has a neutral base, more reflective outside appearance. For bright sunnier days I'd take this. Otherwise if polarized was necessary I'd pick a different lens tint.

    Go with black or ice iridium instead

    I agree with this. IMHO, dark, polarized and neutral tints are what you wear to the beach. I am a HUGE fan of contrast lenses, but the beach is someplace where I don't want it. Ice blue iridium for me.

    bringing this one back, I don't see they offer the +Red in polarized? Is this an option or only non-polarized is available?

    Sorry they use to offer +red polarized. I know it came on the white with text version.
