View Full Version : Question about Goggle Lens Colours
05-24-2004, 06:35 AM
I recently managed to get hold of some Bolle Defender Goggles (the Dutch Army version, I assume they are the same?) and I have a quick question about the lenses.
The Goggles came with 3 lenses, Clear, Dark Tinted and Yellow Tinted. I am pretty sure what the Clear and Dark Tinted lenses are used for but was unsure about the Yellow. Is it supposed to be Anti-laser, Low Light Visibility or something else?

Low light for mine.

low-light and higher contrast

There are clear, grey and yellow replacement lenses for Bolle Defender for anybody to buy. There is no mention about yellow having a laser protection.
"frame also has a double groove allowing for simultaneous use of 2 lenses for added ballistic protection or the use of laser or colored lenses."
So...there may be lenses with laser protection, but I don't believe that you have one of those few (and expensive ones).
So, put that 5€ laser pointer down, it's not worth trying ;)

With the Yellow you can see through clothes which comes in handy at bars......except that even when you do see some serious mothers on a hotty, she'll call the bouncer because the guy with the stupid f..king goggles on won't leave her alone....BTDT

Yellow is a high contrast lens color. A majority of shooting glasses are yellow. I only wear them during overcast and twilight. Normally its just impact resistant sunglasses.
The more stylish the better. ;)
