Amber (Medium) – This is a medium colored lens allowing in about 33% of available visible light. The amber color filters light more evenly then the vermillion and orange lenses, allowing objects to appear closer to their natural color. The brightness and contrast control features on the lens allow it to be used in a wide variety of conditions.
Amber Apple Green – This is a high contrast lens providing superior clarity in bright light conditions.
Amber Crystal Gold – This lens increases contrast in most light conditions.
Arctic Blue – This is a light colored lens allowing in about 75% of available visible light. The light filtration characteristics of this lens accentuates bright targets against a medium to dark background environment, such as trees.
Arctic Blue (Polarized) – This high contrast arctic blue polarized lens is ideal for high glare conditions.
Clear – This lens allows 98% of available visible light and is mainly used indoors when no contrast is needed, or when there is adequate lighting conditions. This is a very good safety lens.
Dark Amber (Polarized) – This high contrast dark amber polarized lens is ideal for high glare conditions.
Gray (Dark) – This is the darkest lens we offer providing only 12% available visible light to come through. It is used on very bright days to cut down on glare and reduce eye strain. The gray color will leave objects true to natural color.
Hunter Orange (Orange Amber) – This lens allows in 50% of available visible light. It filters a greater amount of blue light than either the vermillion or amber brown lenses which brightens lighter colored targets. This lens should be used on cloudy to partly cloudy days to enhance contrasts. Or it can be worn on sunny days if you are wearing a hat.
Purple (Medium) – This intermediate lens allows 46% of available visible light to come through and distribute better contrast and texture to targets against a greener background. It is an excellent choice for sportsmen looking to sharpen targets on partly cloudy and clear days.
Vermillion (Light) – This is a light colored lens allowing in about 70% of available visible light. The light filtration characteristics of this lens accentuates bright targets against a medium to dark background environment, such as trees. It is also an excellent lens to use when shooting in low or flat light conditions.
Optic Yellow – This lens allows in 80% of available visible light. It is worn in hazy, foggy days or late afternoon as it will highlight the target with better definition by blocking out much of the blue light.
