I got the VR28 Black Iridium lenses with some Christmas money - $50 well spent. The color is just perfect for a wide variety of conditions, and they don't look goofy around town like regular pink lenses do. The XLJ lenses are very easy to remove and replace, never had any trouble. Backcountry ships super fast - here in Utah I get my gear the day after I order. I'd say the only negative was the excessive amount of packaging the lenses came in. They were the only thing I ordered, and the box was almost shoe box sized.
