Ive been using my Flaks for about 1.5years with the Black Iridium Polarized Lenses. If i were to stay out in the constant bright sun these were awesome but...I dont. Im an avid hiker, kayaker and the occasional mountain biker...not to mention morning work commuter. Going in and out of the sun and into the shade was annoying with those lenses so I realized they weren't for me. These VR28 Iridium Standard lenses are AWESOME! Perfect for what I need. I don't miss the polarization at all. The VR28's knock out plenty of glare and transition so well into the shade. I highly recommend for multi-sporters! Dont let the pinkish color fool you...they are actually a brownish tint and really brighten things up a bit! 2 thumbs up!
