The Flight Deck replacement lenses are made of premium Plutonite lens material, an innovation that blocks 100% of all UV radiation. Oakley’s CAD/CAM engineering makes lens replacement simple, yet maximizes impact protection while the lenses are installed.
Dual-Pane Lenses with F3 Anti-Fog Coating
Iridium Lens Coating
Dual-Pane Lenses with F3 Anti-Fog Coating - Technology that fights the hazard of fog buildup. Oakley utilizes specially formulated coatings to help prevent lens fog from compromising performance and safety. Goggles with dual vented Plutonite lenses are optimized with Oakley F3 anti-fog coating, allowing the inner ballistic lens to absorb a minimum of 2 ml of moisture.
Combine that with full 360° frame venting and you're ensured optimum airflow to help eliminate fog buildup.
Impact Protection - Oakley's performance goggles meet and exceed the impact-resistance standards of the America National Standards Institute.
Iridium Lens Coating - Oakley's Iridium Lens Coating allows you to tune transmission for any light condition while obtaining the best vision in the bright sun.
VLT stands for Variable Light Transmittance, which is the percentage of light that is allowed to penetrate the lens, for brighter conditions you'll want a lower VLT rating and with darker conditions you'll want a higher VLT rating.
I needed low light lenses for my Flight Decks (not XM version) and it was these or hi yellow which I couldn't find anywhere. My last Oakley low light lenses were persimmon as well. These are awesome! Also, this was my first order with Tactics, and I had never previously heard of the company. Product and delivery were exactly as I expected.
I recently purchased the flight deck with the rose lens. The color works great in the sunlight and I would recommend it. But it is not so great in overcast snowy conditions. So I went into an Oakley dealer before my big snowboard trip to zermatt Switzerland to purchase a yellow lens. The dealer said that they do not carry that particular lens, and that the Prism Hi Pink lens was the replacement for it. The guy touted how great the lens was and how much better the visibility was on the Hi pink over the Yellow. But they were all sold out. So I did a search and found the lens here and ordered it. Fast forward to Zermatt, and the last 3 days of the trip were snowy and overcast. Great powder! The problem was, with the Hi Pink lens I couldn't see my lines. Not even in the deep snow. Everything with that lens was washed out. I was really bummed. I wish I had just picked up the yellow lens instead. which I intend to do. To make matters worse my Flight deck would fog up a little. When you can't see the lines, lips our mounds in front of you blazing down the mountain it makes snowboarding a little tricky. Personally I would not waste your money on this lens. Its to bright in the sunlight and does not work in the flat light or low light. Hope this review helps. I don't want anyone catching an edge because they can't see. Yellow seems to be the old reliable here.
