      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.

              Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

              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!

                Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

                I agree with the folks that are saying these glasses do not get dark enough in sunny conditions. They would be ok for a cloudy day ride but I wouldn't use them on a bright, sunny day. It's too bad, because I like everything else about them but I'm just not sure they will protect my eyes from any glare.

                  I really think that these are the best three season shades that I have ever owned. The tint is not adequate for full blast summer sun, but they excell at twilight conditions in November. They have theses little vents in the upper corners that really work, great protection without fogging.

                  I bought these to replace a pair I bought a couple years prior. I was looking at brands costing about $70 and found these on sale for around $30. They get very dark but not light enough for my liking. Overall they are a great value and Imuse them on every ride.

                      Great low light glasses however they feel a little snug on my head. I do have a wider face so it should fit most well.

                        I bought these glasses for trail running. The photochromic lenses are clear enough in low-light to act as good eye protection against limbs, dirt and other debris. They darken well enough to provide good eye protection under intense sunlight.

                        These glasses are on par IMHO with major elite brands of cycling glasses at a really great price-point.
