What does H.I. mean and is it polarized

Responded on

H.I. stands for "high intensity" and refers to a coating on the lens that increases contrast and squashes glare, especially in crappy conditions. H.I. lenses have high light transmission and are meant to be worn in low light conditions. Get another lens for bright, sunny days. These are not polarized; you can find that version here: http://www.backcountry.com/oakley-stockholm-goggle-polarized
