    Hi!

    I found a Juliet polished with a VR28 black iridium polarized lenses.
    So far I didn't really know nothing about these lenses.

    So what are they actually?
    Are they simply black iridiums?
    On google pics all VR28s in every Oakleys, even in goggles seems kind of brown, without any iridium mirrorings.
    Should I go for another pair of Juliet, or shall I stay with these?
    (I was originally looking for Fire Juliets, when I found this VR28s)

    I hope they won't hurt the very nice outfit of the Juliets...

    Thanks for any input!

    i bought a set for an X Squared i had a while back because everybody raves about the VR28 BIP. i forced myself to use them for a day or two to see if i could get used to it. i couldn't do it. i traded them for some Emerald lenses a couple days after i got them. so the good thing is if you don't like them you can usually find someone to sell them to really easy or trade them for a lens you do like.

    it's a brownish redish base tint looking out of the lens.

    No need for apologies, there have just been quite a few threads that I have read that have covered it much better than could be covered in a single post... My take is I really like it!

    They're getting less and less common. Which is sad. One of the best Oakley lenses they made.

    VR28 polarized is a killer lens for spotty light or high glare conditions like bright days with a shallow haze.
