Is "fire" lens is actually "fire iridium"?

Great Product, Great Value, & Great Customer Service...Thank You Mike X4340... It was everything you said it was...Thanks Again


A Framer for life

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

after about 6 pairs of Oakley A frames I finally threw down for a pair of polarized lens. Although I tend to scratch everything I own these goggles come with their own bag and if you use the bag to wipe down the lens' they seem to last longer. I will continue to buy these goggles over and over again because they are that good.


Best Goggles I have owned

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

These are the best goggles I have owned. They fit nicely and do exactly what they are supposed to do. The lenses are easy to change out and the selection of lenses is better than most other brands out there, No need to get multiple goggles for different conditions you can go from bright sunny day lenses to clouding flat light days or night time lenses.

These goggles are very well made, I have had mine for a over 4 years and they are still going strong. I am sure I will get many more years out of them.

Does anyone have experience with the H.I....

Does anyone have experience with the H.I. Amber Polarized lenses on snow days?

My brother wishes for new lenses for heavy snow days, and night riding. Which lenses do you recommend?

He has the Cowbar frame

Thank you!


Best Answer


I would recommend looking closely at the H.I. lenses and especially the polarized. The amber colored lense will allow more light in on cloudy days, and the polarization will both give more definition to snow terrain and block nasty glare coming off the mountain on brighter days

Thanks for answering me, Michael!

But just to clear; you would rather recommend H.I. Amber Polarized than the H.I. Yellow or H.I. Persimmon?

He already has some lenses for sunny days, so what he is looking for is lenses for mainly snow and late evening/night riding.

Here is Oakley's website for crowbar lenses

At the bottom of the page where it says Description, Return Policy, and Lens Tints click on lens tints and you can compare the different tints against the naked eye.


Perfect fit

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

The wife picked up a pair of these this season. They fit perfectly under her helmet and they do not cause a gaper gap! She has plenty of peripheral vision. She has a medium sized face and these are the perfect proportion. She also loves how the polarized cuts down on glare. She has sensitive eyes and even a little bit helps.

good fit with oakley quality. smacked my face plenty of times and they held up great! dont scratch easy, good style and no fog.


Don't buy just because they're oakleys

    These are good goggles, oakley lenses are unmatched, but they're frames, in my opinion are really uncomfertable. I am personally a fan of bigger frame goggles that dont rest on my cheek bone, and every single oakley frame (including the crowbar rest on your cheek bone. I have a normal sized face, and the A frame was leaking air through on the side because they dont make theyre frames big enough. You NEED to try on goggles at a shop before you buy online. DO NOT just buy goggles because theyre oakleys because they're frames are really uncomfertable. Buy electric eg2's or dragon APX if you want supperior comfort that oakley doesn't compare too

    so why did you give them a 3 star review? because they didn't fit your face?

    Oakley A-Frame H.I. Amber Polarized

    Oakley A-Frame H.I. Amber Polarized

    H.I. Amber lens is what I rock on those clowdy storm days and believe me they make a world of difference. The contrast is great, it really allows you really see moguls and other features that you normally wouldnt pick up nearly as close with a regular lens. Even though they are pricey I believe they are worth it!

    I bought the Oakley A frames last year for...

    I bought the Oakley A frames last year for backpacking in windy conditions because reviews said that the breath well. I tried them on last week and they don't fit my face. The bridge of my nose is squeezed down so that I can breath through my nose. This is a deal breaker for high altitude climbing. I am 6', 2", 230, with a slightly longer nose. I am looking for a frame with a deep V cut in the nose bridge and superior lense quality. Any suggestions?

    Check out the Smith I/O. I picked up a pair this year for skiing and they are excellent. There's more room around the nose than my old A-Frames and they flow more air as well, which helps prevent fogging. I also noticed that they are significantly cooler than my A-Frames, they don't keep my eyes as warm. This is probably a good thing, especially for backpacking, where you won't be moving as fast to help prevent the fogging.

    I second Smith. I've got a big face and went fro a-frames to smith phenoms last year.


    Inner anti-fog super volitile

      Here's a more thorough review on the problem with the lens' inner anti-fog:

      In general, it won't hold if touched when wet. Other than that, the peripheral vision on the gogs is what makes this such a versatile tool.

      I've had the smearing issue between the lenses twice now with the A frames which makes them unusable.



        I've been wearing a pair of these in Afghanistan for a few months now, usually in combination with a protech helmet while riding through the desert on an atv or motorcycle. They have been working great. They keep the dust out and the polarized lenses are great for the blazing Afghani sun. There is really only two things to say here; 1, they are functional (the polarized lenses are worth every cent), and 2, they just look cool. Those two reasons are more than good enough for me.


        Oakley A Frame Goggle - Polarized Hi Amber

          Best goggles hands down.Hi Amber polarized lenses don't look the best (I like the look of the fire lenses, or the mirrored finish), but they definitely perform the best. I've used them in heavy snow, fog, overcast, sunny days, rain, wind, wind and heavy snow, night riding w/ lights- basically every situation possible, and so far I haven't found any others that I'd rather have. The A-Frames don't fog up....As long as you keep moving, the wind keeps them clear. This is my second pair (the first carbon/black iridium lens fell off my damn helmet), and it's been the same positive experience with these, but the lens is much better. I've also tried the following Oakley lenses: persimmon, black iridium, and fire. Picked these due to overwhelmingly good reviews, here and on other sites- I'm glad I did. Hands down- best!BTW- I picked these over the newer Splice goggles...I like the fit and look better overall. They are a bit less bulky compared to the Splices.

          Oakley A Frame Goggle - Polarized Hi Amber

          I want a pair of Polarized A-Frames, but...

          I want a pair of Polarized A-Frames, but I don't know which lense is best for me. I will use these goggles in all conditions (sunny days, snow, flat-light) except I never ski at night. What is best for me?

          i use the high amber polarized for every day and love them

          I have two pairs, a fire iridium lens and a H.I. Amber polarized lens. The fire is gerat on sunny days, cuts glare breathes well and feels great. Handles low light conditions so so, the H.I. Amber lens is what I rock on those clowdy storm days and believe me they make a world of difference. The contrast is great, it really allows you really see moguls and other features that you normally wouldnt pick up nearly as close with a regular lens. Even though they are pricey I believe they are worth it!


          Great Goggles

            These goggles breathe incredibly well. Having polarized lenses helped immensely on those bright days. They handled transitions (in-and-out of the shadows) better than either of my other cheap-o goggles. And, in low light conditions, I was still able to see clearly and avoid rocky obstacles on narrow trails as opposed to guessing what the slightly gray patch was in front of me!
            I highly recommend these.

            I love this goggle. I had few Smith goggles and this is my first Oakley and my favorite one. I used it numerous times in sunny day, in snow and blizzard day, amazingly performed well with no fog at all. I LOVE IT!


            solid goggles

              Just spent a week in Aspen with my new oakley goggles and this is the best pair of goggles I've ever owned. No fog. Great venting. Even in bitter cold weather with a mask over my mouth, the lens stayed clear. Love the polarized lens. Only complaint is that the strap could be a little longer/stretchier. I have a R.E.D. helmet, and I had to stretch the goggle strap tight to get it all the way around.
