    I don't know about the mirrored ones, but I do know that the brown lenses offer more contrast to the green ones, which are more like the traditional lenses used in sunglasses. This extra contrast allows you to wear them in lower light situations (an intermittently cloudy day for example) and still take advantage of the polarization or prescription if that's the case. I'm told that golfers like this effect because it makes the ball pop out, but I wouldn't know. I'd imagine the not so natural contrast would drive some people nuts, but I love it.
