      These work well. They adjust to the light so you're always comfortable. The lenses are of just the right size to protect you from those little gnats too! Heck, I wear these all the time off the bike too!

          Nose pad broke off within a year. Other than that, the sunglasses were decent. I tend to lose them often, so I never spend much on glasses. These are cheap enough that I am okay with buying another pair.

            These glasses are very good at eye protection. The side benefit is the light protection.

                  I am a15-25 mile rider. I bought these to use while biking after having a little bug or dust get into my eye. I have prescription glasses, but they seemed heavy for biking. They are very lightweight and comfortable. So far they have changed for the light perfectly. I don't even realize they have changed until I take them off. I highly recommend them.

                  Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

                  I wanted photochromic sunglasses that would stay on while riding, not fog up, and not make me too upset when I inevitably break or lose them. These guys do all of those things very well. Photochromic response could probably be faster but it's pretty good, darkening from near-transparent to maybe 40-50% absorption in about a minute.

                  The only real downside is that they feel very fragile, and being all plastic they're going to snap instead of bend. They come with a carrying bag but spend a few bucks on a hard case.

                  Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

                  These glasses are exactly what I was looking for - lightweight, good eye coverage (from the wrap-around design) and an effective photochromic response. I haven't actually measured it, but it looks like 30-40% darkening in full sunlight, and that in under a minute. The tint is good - mostly dark gray, with just a slight tinge of that odd photochromic rose-orange color. With the excellent sale price at Nashbar, these were a great deal. I bought 3 pairs!

                      I've only had these for a couple of weeks, but have ridden with them in all kinds of weather conditions: cloudy to full sun, even heavy wind. The tint shifts just enough to keep providing protection, all the while giving a very clear view. So light, I forget I'm wearing them. Great wind protection as well. And they look nice enough to wear off the bike, walking around downtown. Considering ordering another set to have on hand if I ever break these.
