Steamy sunglasses

Posted24 September 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, cheap(ish)
Cons: Poor quality, Uncomfortable, fragile, steam up
Work fine as long as you are moving, but steam up as soon as you slow down as there is naff-all ventilation. This makes them a pain for climbing.
I also apparently have an abnormally wide nose, so they sort of perch on the bridge. This wasn't a problem in the shop, but makes them sloppy on the bike.
Also, the legs are somewhat fragile - I managed to snap one of mine on their second outing trying to fumble them into a pocket.
In conclusion: for fast people with thin noses who don't sweat and are delicate, these are fairly decent. Otherwise stay clear.

Light reaction sun glasses

Posted09 August 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable
Cons: Expensive, not light reactive
Liked the look of these because of the colour of the frame and the fact that they were light reactive. They fit well but I haven't seen ant light reaction in the lenses at all. If that had have been an important feature for me I'd have sent them back.

Endura Manta Light Reactive Glasses

Posted22 May 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Expensive, not very reactive, not dark enough, poor quality case
I bought these on-line to replace a bust pair of cheap sports glasses with changeable lenses which I used when cycling. They are comfortable enough, and you get a soft case, and a hard case with them. The hard case is okay but bulky, and the zip broke after a couple of days, so it's now useless. The glasses provide good protection from debris, but do not appear to react when light levels change. And in bright sunlight, I personally find the glasses are not dark enough to prevent squinting. I used Tesco Clubcard rewards to order Evans vouchers, so I guess they cost me next to nothing in real terms. If I had paid by another means I'd have felt a little bit cheated.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
I bought these as I found my usual shades too dark when going through tree covered trails. They work a treat, they don't go completely clear but are much better than 'regular' sunglasses in shaded areas. To be honest, the first time I wore them, I forgot I was wearing them- and I mean that in a complimentary way!

Great Looking Glasses!!

Posted08 May 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
A very comfortable pair of shades, look great and are great for cycling in. Large lenses give all round unhindered vision. Good price level glasses compared to the more pricier ones such as Oakley etc that I also tried on in the shop...Thanks.
