    Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

    I bought these because they were on sale and I wanted a pair of photochromic lenses. I'm glad I made this purchase. They are comfortable and feel pretty durable. I like the vents in the lenses because they really do help them not to fog up. The tint is not very dark but this is exactly what I was looking for.

        I've been wearing the photochromatic glasses for some time and they're really great. Too bad I keep losing them. I went ahead and bought two pair.

          I use the product for driving and occasionally cycling. I like the "photo grey" idea and it is helpful into the evening - but they do not get as dark as I would like or am used to with regular sun glasses.

            Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

            I both mountain bike and road bike and even though I have Smith and Oakely glasses, I find I use these the most. In the woods, overcast days, road rides that go in and out of tree cover, and near dusk, these are my go to glasses. Only wear the others on bright sunny days. But these will darken enough in bright sunshine to be helpful.

            Comments about Nashbar Platte Photochromic Sunglasses:

            I like the design, they are very light and flexible, so feel that they conform to my face. I wanted to give them 5 stars, but two issues prevent this. First, although the photochromic lenses are a great idea and save having to switch lenses, they don't go dark enough. These glasses are good for cloudy or weak sun days, but I need my other darker glasses for full sun days (I'm in AZ!). Other issue is that the tint is not neutral grey, it is somewhat rose. I don't notice when I put the on, but after taking them off everything looks "wrong" for a minute or two. Not a big deal but noticeable!
