    5.11 is just a company that imports crappy tacticool wannabe gear from China. You can find plenty that is both better and cheaper.

    I'd go with Wiley X. In fact, Wiley X can whip you out a pair of their shooting/tactical glasses with actual prescription lenses for a pretty reasonable price - no inserts, real Wiley X lenses with your prescription.

    I had a feeling so that's why I asked

    I think I will be. My reason for the RX insert is I want to get 3 different color lenses and with rx in each it has to cost a good chunk of money. But I suppose I could call them and find out

    My thinking on that has been:
    Yellow lenses serve absolutely no purpose, which is why they have fallen out of favor in shooting sports since the 70's.
    Dark lenses are great for keeping the sun out of your eyes, but can be too dark for picking up the sights quickly on darker days.
    Clear lenses are the most all around useful, even on a bright day, since, they say, narrower pupils focus faster, so you can aim faster.

    If I was buying 1 pair, they'd be clear. If I was buying 2 they'd be clear and dark. I wouldn't by yellow/amber/rust regardless.

    I work for Honeywell. Our company does not make them but our safety department supplies them to us.
