    Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

    I agree with the folks that are saying these glasses do not get dark enough in sunny conditions. They would be ok for a cloudy day ride but I wouldn't use them on a bright, sunny day. It's too bad, because I like everything else about them but I'm just not sure they will protect my eyes from any glare.

      Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

      I really think that these are the best three season shades that I have ever owned. The tint is not adequate for full blast summer sun, but they excell at twilight conditions in November. They have theses little vents in the upper corners that really work, great protection without fogging.

      Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

      I bought these to replace a pair I bought a couple years prior. I was looking at brands costing about $70 and found these on sale for around $30. They get very dark but not light enough for my liking. Overall they are a great value and Imuse them on every ride.

          Great low light glasses however they feel a little snug on my head. I do have a wider face so it should fit most well.

            I bought these glasses for trail running. The photochromic lenses are clear enough in low-light to act as good eye protection against limbs, dirt and other debris. They darken well enough to provide good eye protection under intense sunlight.

            These glasses are on par IMHO with major elite brands of cycling glasses at a really great price-point.

                  Very comfortable and do not fog up while riding my road bike. I tend to ride in early morning and lower lighting conditions. The lighter tinted lenses are great for low like versus the darker lenses for bright sunlight. Recommend for commuters and early morning riders.

                    Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

                    The feature I most like about these glasses is that they are designed in such a way that reduces the effect of wind on the eyes. I live in an area which is frequently in the single digits as far as humidity. So, with some biking glasses, I have to squirt eye lubrication into my eyes after a ride. Not with these glasses! I don't know if they purposely designed them to deal with this problem, but it has succeeded.
                    The thing I like least about the glasses is that the photochromic lenses aren't quite dark enough when they get to maximum opacity. But that's really not a significant problem.
