Nose pad broke within a year

By Chaepskate

from Utah

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Comfortable
  • Lightweight

Cons

    Best Uses

      Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

      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 have a small face and these worked great. Nice for overcast or late day rides when you come back in the dark. Good protection and very comfortable.

              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.

              • Riding Bike

              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.

                  Excellent value. Only problem was in bright sun and sub freezing temperatures the glasses get too dark and distort colors. 40+ degrees no problem.

                    I've owned my pair for about two years, and they've been solid performers the entire time. Put them on, and regardless of the lighting conditions the glasses just get out of the way. Fogging has never been an issue, except perhaps for brief moments at stop lights. They look more expensive than they are, and if you take care of them, they should last for a long time.
