    Just got these in the mail today so I fit them into my grey smoke SJ 2.0s. I must say they look very complex with so many hues of cool blue and warm green, much much better than OEM emerald to look at. In terms of clarity they are not on par with Oakley polarization and it takes the eyes some time to adjust, they are also very dark as mentioned previously on the forums (see my pictures). That being said they do the job well and are bang on for the price. It should be noted that these are not conservative like the OEM emerald, these are bright and garish lenses and suit the wanky/over confident mood well, definitely not funeral specs.

    I have included a fair few pictures below to show you just how much this colour varies give the viewing angle/ambient lighting. To conclude I think these should be renamed VL emerald/ice

    I don't know why I care so much about the color of a lens but I do so I bought Jade Iridium but it's not as nice as those.

    Those do look sick! Do you know if they make that same pair for the old XX Twenty?

    Nice write-up. They do look nice in a grey smoke frame. I have a set too that I put in a matte black pair of MDs (below). I liked the deeper green of these versus the Emerald OEM against the matte black but that is just a matter of personal taste. As you and others have mentioned, I wish they were not so damn dark. The 24k VL lenses are dark as well.
