Strengths:    Durable. Reasonably priced - can be found online for ~$50

Weaknesses:    perhaps not as stylish as some other models

Bottom Line:   
I have used these for better than 3 years. I use these with the presciption insert. After plenty of miles and several drops they still work fine. Fit is good and there is a small amount of tension that keeps them in place. Lenses (I only use the TNS) seem to resist scratches well

Strengths:    Good coverage and protection especially if you wear contact lenses. Easy to change lenses, good optical quality. Inexpensive.

Weaknesses:    No polarized lenses available, otherwise these would get two sets of five "stars".

Bottom Line:   
These are terrific glasses at a fantastic price. There is one thing however that I can't understand. Why aren't polarized lenses available for these frames and why-oh-why don't more manufacturers routinely make glasses with polarized lenses?????

These glasses are great otherwise but if polarized lenses were available I'd snap them up in a second. These glasses provide great coverage, the lenses are easy to change and the lens quality is good. I bought the version that came with four sets of lenses but I've seen these on sale with two sets for as little as $32. A real bargain!

Strengths:    Good fit and protection. Comfort.

Weaknesses:    Retail is expensive- I got mine on clearance.

Bottom Line:   
Very comfortable, and stylish to boot. I use the vigilante model. Better ventilation than the Performance radials I had been using leads to less lense fogging.

Should members of the Manson family be granted parole?

They've been in custody pretty close to 40 years. One of them (I think Susan Atkins but I'm going from memory) is basically at hospice level cancer treatment. Leslie Van Houten is also rumored to have been a model prisoner for decades. Tex Watson is a preacher or something. And Charles Manson di ... Read More »
