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.
