What the difference between the anon Solace...

Posted on

What the difference between the anon Solace and Hawkeye version? I noticed that the website said that the Hawkeye allows 25% visible light transmission while the Solace allows 68% - does this mean that the Hawkeye is much better + price is lower too? And what about fit? does the Solace have a smaller frame and therefore sit better on smaller faces/women then?

Solace is the women's model, while hawkeye is the mens version - probably means they fit a little differently to each other.

The VLT pertains to the lens and not the model of the goggle. Eric is correct, the Solace is a women's specific goggle and the Hawkeye is a unisex goggle. The Hawkeye is bigger than the Solace but both have a great field of vision and have an elliptical lens to give you great optical clarity. If you have a smaller face then go with the Solace for sure. It is a great goggle.
