    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.

          Hard to argue with $40 photochromics

          Best Uses

          • 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.

          • Indoor - Outdoor Work

          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!

              Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

              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.

                Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

                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.

                  Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

                  The edge to edge clarity is excellent on these. The shade would not be dark enough for full sun on like sandy conditions but is more than adequate for riding in the woods.I have a small face and these fit excellent and don't look like aviators. They are very comfortable and seem to stay put while riding some pretty rough terrain.
