These glasses are fantastic!!! Great fit. Great performance!!!


  • Comfortable fit
  • Side shields
  • Dark


  • Hard to keep clean
  • Side shields are not easy to remove

I have very light sensitive eyes and these glasses are a god send. They fit extremely well without pinching my nose or behind the ears.

I recently took them with me to the Himalayas where I spent a week outside in a variety of conditions (snow, rain, blazing sun and heat). I rarely took them off and didn't feel I was squinting nor did I get headaches. Though my memory of the mountains is a bit darker than what they really are :).

The only things I don't like are that the side shield are too hard to remove and when the lenses get a little dirty are hard to clean. Pic in profile is me with them.
