Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

I use the product for driving and occasionally cycling. I like the "photo grey" idea and it is helpful into the evening - but they do not get as dark as I would like or am used to with regular sun glasses.

    Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

    I both mountain bike and road bike and even though I have Smith and Oakely glasses, I find I use these the most. In the woods, overcast days, road rides that go in and out of tree cover, and near dusk, these are my go to glasses. Only wear the others on bright sunny days. But these will darken enough in bright sunshine to be helpful.

    Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

    I like the design, they are very light and flexible, so feel that they conform to my face. I wanted to give them 5 stars, but two issues prevent this. First, although the photochromic lenses are a great idea and save having to switch lenses, they don't go dark enough. These glasses are good for cloudy or weak sun days, but I need my other darker glasses for full sun days (I'm in AZ!). Other issue is that the tint is not neutral grey, it is somewhat rose. I don't notice when I put the on, but after taking them off everything looks "wrong" for a minute or two. Not a big deal but noticeable!

            I really the the glasses except in full sunlight. They just are not dark enough. But they are very comfortable and don't fog even in cooler weather.

                  These glasses are comfortable, change tint well indoors and out, fit well and do not slide down my nose once I get sweated up. Reasonably priced.

                    You don't even notice when the tint changes. They are fine in low-light conditions and I don't have any problem with the tint level even in high light conditions as some have mentioned. If I rode during warm weather in my area when high light intensity was a problem then my glasses would be the least of my issues! Morning/evening is the only time to ride around here!
