    I just got delivery of a pair of iridium ice lenses from Evolense and so far I'm happy with them. I even like that they have the word "polarized" etched. I'm now looking to get another set and was wondering if anyone can give me their opnion on Evolense vs. Walleva. I've read some posts and it seems that both these makers are liked, but would like to know if one is better than the other.

    Thanks.

    Evolense for me......hands down.....I have had VL, Walleva and Exovista in the past but IMHO nothing is a nice as Evolense....I have 3 pairs now going on 4....2 Positive Red and 1 Navy (Ice equivalent).....after receiving my first pair of Positive Red I received an email from Evolense asking how I liked them....and if they're was anything else they could do to make them better....I suggested putting "Polarized" etching on the outside of the lens......I am not bashing the other lens companies by any means...its just that I'm partial to Evolense.....here are a few shots of my X Metal/Positive Red and X Metal/Navy Juliets with Evolenses.....

    I just use an email that I got from somewhere on this site. As a matter of fact Dyeraudio posted in his response. I'll be ordering the +red this evening for my Fue Cells. $25 shipped.

    Here are the details I was sent:

    Blue ice = Yellow tint = 16% transmission
    Deep Purple = Yellow tint = 16% transmission
    Violet purple = Yellow tint = 16% transmission
    Red Fire = Blue tint = 13% transmission
    Orange Fire = Blue tint = 13% transmission
    Pink Ice = Grey Tint = 18% transmission
    Green Jade = Grey Tint = 18% transmission
    Black Onyx = Black Tint = 10% transmission
    Red+ = Grey Tint = 13% transmission
    Navy Blue = Grey Tint = 13% transmission
    Yellow Gold = Grey Tint = 15% transmission
    Gun Metal = Grey Tint = 10% transmission
    Silver = Grey Tint = 10% transmission

    Its hard to tell the real colors of the lenses by the factory pics....Navy is actually a dead on match for Oakley Ice......

    I just got the evolense red for a set of flak jackets, they are nice looking and the color is very nice. The clarity seems good as well. I also have a pair of VL jade for some half jackets and they
    are nice as well, good looking color and good clarity. Between the 2 i would have to go with the VL due to the evolense is thinner and doesnt fit as tight as the VL lenses. Now in a Juliet frame
    that fits tighter it may be different but in these 2 with the snap in lenses i like the VL. Both seem to be decent quality for the price and i do like the etching on the evo. Have not tried any of the
    other brands tho. Hope this helps some.
