Brown: Filters out a lot of blue light, improves visual contrast and clarity, and is suitable for wearing in heavily polluted or foggy conditions.

Blue Gray: Like gray, it belongs to a neutral color system, with a darker color and a higher visible light absorption rate.

Mercury lens: The lens surface is coated with high density. Can absorb and reflect more visible light, suitable for outdoor sportspeople.
