      Comments about Nashbar Zurich Photochromic Sunglasses:

      These have the same comfortable, lightweight frame as the old Nashbar glasses that had light yellow lenses. I prefer the older, non darkening lenses because they gave adequate protection in most conditions and still offered good visibility in dark places like tunnels, etc. The photochromatic lenses are better than plain dark lenses but still don't lighten fast enough when entering heavy shadows or a tunnel. They are a little too dark for overcast or light rain.

        Comments about Nashbar Zurich Photochromic Sunglasses:

        I was looking for some eye protection, mostly from bugs, that I could use when it is darker also. These glasses satisfy that need well.

        Comments about Nashbar Zurich Photochromic Sunglasses:

        Used for road cycling & mountain biking both. Positives: Just enough tint to cut the glare without diminishing perception of visual detail; good fit for a large head (size 7 5/8). Negative: they scratch easily. Still, good value for the price.

            Comments about Nashbar Zurich Photochromic Sunglasses:

            I have owned these glasses for almost 2 years, use them about 2x/week for mountain biking and they are still working great. They fit well and are lightweight. I find they stay on well and don't slide down my nose even when sweating. They are especially great for rides at sunset where I get sun protection and they light up to almost clear for riding at night. I use them day and night. I like that the lens doesn't get too dark in the sunlight as I prefer a lens that is not too dark so I can see the terrain best.

            As for some who say they fog, all glasses fog, especially in cold weather, and you simply need a little anti fog spray to prevent fogging. In a pinch, use your spit. (A scuba diving staple to keep your mask from fogging.)

            I recommended these to two friends who also bought them and they love them too.

            Nice to where when you'll be out after dark or if you have a long ride when the the forecast is for mostly cloudy. My 2nd pair, I ran over my first pair backing out of my garage. :-(

              This is an excellent pair of glasses to use when I'm riding my recumbent trike. It has great protection from road hazards since I'm low to the ground, it fits nice and snug, and looks great.
