Shooting Glasses – What 5-lens set should you choose?

One of the most common questions we get asked is, ‘What set should I go for?’

There is no right or wrong answer to this. It comes down to personal preference, but there are some differences between them.

All the standard five lens sets have been combined with a balanced lens selection offering one colour from each colour category and a generous range of light transmission values. These will offer you an option for almost every situation you encounter across the shooting calendar. If you are unsure what lens colours are right for you or want to experiment with as many lens colours as possible, the standard sets are a good option.

If you want to choose your lens selection, then you can. We offer custom sets from 2-5 lenses.

Electric Purple is much warmer and pink compared to the cooler blue shade of Deep Purple. Amber is a 50/50 mix of XTRM Yellow & Orange. Light Brown is there for sunny/overcast conditions.
