Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

Really nice sunglasses, light weight, comfortable, and is a great fit for my small face.
It stays in place regardless of how much I sweat. I am just not sure if it is truly photochromic as the tint seems to be the same shade in different light intensity, but beyond that it's a great product.

Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

I bought these because I liked the styling and the great Nashbar price, but now that I've worn them on rides, I would recommend them based on their other attributes such as light weight, good fit and visibility, air venting and variable tint lenses. They are much better then other glasses I've had that cost three times more. They work so good, you simply forget you're wearing sunglasses!

    Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

    Good quality but photochromics will never go as dark as other shades. Great if you like the transition, not if you're in strong direct sunlight a lot. They run on the small side too.

        I have a small face and have a very hard time finding sunglasses that look right in my face. Although some of the reviews said these were great for a small faces I was still reluctant. These are not too big and fit great. They are lightweight and comfortable. They do not fog. Great buy.

            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.

                    Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

                    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.
