    Seems like you're in the wrong forum.

    Luckily, I also happened to work at an Oakley dealer for quite a while. Any iridium coated lenses are mirrored and tend to be more reflective and thus let less light through. There's really not a big difference between colors in terms of what conditions they work best in. The exception to that is for darker or overcast conditions, the yellow lenses help increase contrast. I use those instead of clear when biking in the woods on cloudy days or at night. The persimmon, if I recall, is an amber lens and is good for enhancing contrast with snow or other bright surfaces.
