I bought the 580 silver mirrors. Was pumped. They showed up. I put them on. I said "Where's the mirror?" I have a pair of Anon silver mirror snow goggles, so I KNOW silver mirrors. These Blackfins are like a lame amber color. As I mentioned in another review, I have a 'thing' about people being able to see my eyes through my sunglasses. When I buy mirrored glasses, I expect to be looking through a one-way frickin' mirror! As much as I wanted to like the glasses, the lenses looked like I was wearing Blue-blockers. I actually thought someone put the wrong glasses in the box, and called Backcountry to tell them that. It wasn't until I ordered the silver mirrors from another site that I figured out silver mirrors are neither silver nor mirrored. Very disappointed.

Beyond the lenses, the frames are great. They stick to your head, feel good, stay in place. Now if they could just get those lenses right.

Got these in the white/tortoise variety and love 'em. I have a thing about people being able to see my eyes through my sunglasses. I'm of the opinion that no one should know where I am looking - sneaky right? Well the grey lenses on these are pretty decent. If someone looks hard enough and the lighting is just right, you can see my eye balls. However, in most situations, my eyes are properly concealed.

One more thing - these are certainly in the "fashion" category as opposed to "sporty". The glasses are pretty hefty compared to my other "sporty" glasses. Additionally, if I try to prop them on top of my head (when I go indoors, etc), the combination of the weight and the fact that the temples are all smooth and don't have any rubberized points, it feels like the glasses want to fall off non-stop. To be clear, when I am wearing them on my eyes, they stay on great. I am only talking about when I put them on top of my head to get them out of my way.

Overall, I love the design and the look. 4 stars. Lost 1 star because they don't sit on top of my dome very well.
