Really nice but small
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
I've been looking for new glasses for cycling for a while. I dont like the shield type glasses but didn't want full frame glasses either. I took a chance and ordered these. The shipped promptly and arrived quickly - props to Backcountry.com. They appear to be very well made and the lenses were really good. A nice brown lens that was clear and distortion free.
The only problem is they were too narrow for me. They just didn't provide enough coverage. Now in their defense, I do have a bigger head. I run about a 7 1/2' hat size and these just didn't quite cover enough. If you have a 'normal' size head, I'd give these a shot as they seemed really well made and even though they didn't quite fit, they were comfortable.
Lightweight; great for hiking/biking
Always avoided sunglasses because I could never find a pair that would stay on while I hiked/biked. I have an oily/combination complexion and a rather flat nose so most sunglasses tend to either sit too low and not cover the top part of my vision or would slip off due to sweat/oil. Tried these out and am still using them now for all my outdoorsy activities and driving too. Been four months and I am enjoying how these glasses help block the brightness of the sun without dimming out too much. Frameless style covers all of my vision without blocking anything out! Also easier to clean; no cracks for dust and such to embed. Lightweight and nose support help minimize the dents on my nose and help them stay on without much slipping. Sleek design sits flush against my face/head and fits under my helmet.
After four months of flipping the arms open and closed one of the screws began to loosen a wee bit. Managed to catch that and tighten it back up before falling out/losing it. I imagine most glasses have this problem anyways?
Great for running and cycling
I just ran a trail race in these this weekend, and they were AWESOME! I don't always like the Polarized lens in my performance glasses, as it can make me feel dizzy. This still reduced glare, brightened the trail, and was light on my face. Awesome price for the performance.
