    I have several pairs of Fast Jacket XL
    Some came with extra persimmon lens
    I have a pair of Fast Jackets in Lemmon Peel
    They came with the fire polar and the extra persimmon

    But these persimmon lens seem brighter
    Just curious if Oakley made variations?
    Or can some one tell me why these add more light (brighter) when I wear them?
    As compared to the XL persimmon lens

    Hmmm
    I wonder if thats the difference.
    Its been raining here a lot. These work very good in the rain. I would love to find another set if I can figure what they are
     
  4. HI Persimmon is pretty easy to differentiate from standard Persimmon. The standard one is just a plain orange lens without irridium, while the HI version is the same base lens but with a layer of blue irridium added, giving them a very different look than the standard.

    Here's a thread with a pic of HI Persimmon in a Juliet where the blue irridium coating is clearly visible-

    Here's a sales thread with a standard Persimmon lens, basically just orange.
