What is the difference between Polarchromic and Polarized?
i used to snowboard with a blue lens, and i still do with green. they are a mid-high light lens. so a sunny day but with some clouds

if you look at the VLT% that is telling you how much light it lets in. the smaller % the sunnier it should be. something >20% is usually a sunny day lens 20-40% is a mid and about 50-80% is for those super dark days.
