Review: One thing I miss from my old Raven goggles was the tint lens. So when I saw that V-force made a photochromatic lens for the Profiler, I got one.

I bought the brown tint based on a little research I did. It blocks the blue light and still retains most of the true color reception. The lenses are very subtle in the tint. Some people wouldn't like that, but it does tint just enough to make it comfortable to see.

I did have one instance where I had to wear sunglasses under my goggles, but that was an extreme situation and not normal. I also find that the lenses are more prone to fogging than my clear lenses. I don't know if it's something I did, or if it's something inherent to the lens treatment. Either way, it's something that's been happening.

I find that the color change is actually fairly fast considering what's going on. I like the subtle tint, as it's not overbearing. When you play in the woods, and go from light to dark, your eyes don't need to adjust as much. Plus it's handy when you're going from something like a building or tunnel into the light, or visa versa. Can you imagine going into a dark building with a mirrored lens?
Conclusion: If you play in variable light conditions, this is a good purchase. If you play in mostly sun (outdoor speedball) or mostly dark (indoor CQB) this may not be a good lens for you. But if you go from one to the other routinely, then make sure you pick one of these up.
