So, I just ordered a pair of Wisdoms in Olive Military/Black Iridium. The issue that I'm having is that the lens has a brown tint to it. It looks like a persimmon base with an iridium coating. Any ideas? Do we have a a compendium of Goggle Lens data? I'd really like a lens that has the same characteristics of sunglass Black Iridium.

you won't find a lens that matches the black iridium in sunglasses I'm afraid, the black iridium for goggles tends to be a dark brown.

Personally, I think the best looking wisdom lens is gold iridium, you get a nice mirrored look and it has a really low transmission index like sunglasses black iridium.

Fire iridium is nice as well, but really works better with an A frame than wisdom, I'm not sure why but the hues on Wisdom Fire iridium looks very different from Fire Iridium for sunglasses.

I'd really just like a lens that cuts brightness without tinting everything. I already have a fire iridium lens for my Wisdoms, and I'm highly considering a gold iridium lens, just for the reasons you mentioned. My only issue is that all my outerwear is Olive Drab or military green, so if I use a gold lens, I'll end up looking like Master Chief from Halo.

At the risk of sounding blasphemous, if anyone can make a Master Chief replica out of a Gold Iridium lens, I'd would so pay to have it.

That'd be a lot more funny if anyone in the world understood welsh. Maybe it's my untrained American ear, but all the welsh I've heard spoken sounded like my cat singing Bjork while simultaneously coughing up a hairball. With that said, I'm half Welsh. The other half is Scottish, so if you combine the two accents, there isn't a person on earth who should be able to understand anything I say.

lol Welsh is still commonly spoken here in Wales, JRR Tolkien actually based Elvish on Welsh intonations. He studied for a short while in the University of Wales in Aberyswyth (mid wales is very proud of welsh history and culture) and he fell in love with the language.

A lot of character and place names in the lord of the rings are based on Welsh words eg Saron is a placename, Dinas is Welsh for City, Tir is Welsh for Land so Minas Tirith is based on the Welsh for City of the Land with subtle changes.

I'm still having a hard time trying to figure out how to pronounce Aberyswyth....
