      Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

      Well worth the price, esp if on one the frequent sales. I don't see much change in varying lights, but the light grey tint works pretty well all around. They are comfortable and compatable with my new POC hemet so I'm very happy with them.

        I had read another review suggesting that the lenses change so well you really never notice. Absolutely true. Very light. Comfortable. Great value.

            Bought these to use Spring and Fall when daylight hours run short for bicycle commuting to work. They lighten up enough to wear in the dark and they darken down enough to wear in the sun. Just what I wanted. Don't seem to steam up much either.

              Great glasses. I took them on a 20-mile ride this weekend for the first time and I forgot they were even there. Very lightweight, seem durable (time will tell), and stay in place even over bumps. I would give them five stars, but the nose piece seems a little tight for my face and they can't be adjusted, so they sit a bit higher than I would like, but like I said, on my ride I didn't notice them there at all so this is a very minor issue for me. Only fogged up a little around the edges when I was stuck at stop lights, but cleared up right away once I got moving again. Would definitely recommend for people with small faces like me.

                Enjoying these sunglasses! Especially like the fact that they don't distort the image, everything is still clear, and they stay put! Definitely worth the money!

                  So an elderly lady turned in front of me yesterday and the only place for me to go was into the passenger side of her vehicle--at about 16 mph. The right side of my head/face made full contact with her window and these glasses did not break. They are badly scratched and therefore will need to be replaced but the important thing is they protected my eye from a very bad collision and a potentially bad outcome. Fortunately between this and my helmet all I ended up with was bumps and bruises. I highly recommend this product!
