Pros: Good value, Comfortable, Lightweight, effective
Like so many things, you have to find what works for you. This really works for me. I wanted something that I could take a quick glance at and it gives me a heads up on what's behind me, and this does just that, so for me it's a winner.
Pros are that it sits right on your glasses, can be adjusted to any angle, and gives you an immediate view of the traffic behind you.
Cons are that it doesn't seem to attach that securely to the specs, I'd be worried of it vibrating off and going under some cars wheels, so I've secured it with wire.
It's a small mirror so it won't give you a panoramic view of what's behind you, but a quick glance gives me a clear view of what's coming up on my rear.
It does obscure your view a little to the right, but you can easily get used to that.
Overall, great product and works for me

Good value for the money

PostedJuly 15, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
This is a good product but could be improved a little if the mirror was slightly more to the right it would give a much greater field of vision, perhaps mirror positioned horizontally.
Great value for money.

This is a great product, easy to fit although I did have use some tape to secure it. Easy to position and gives a clear view with a little practice.

Excellent rear vision

PostedJuly 15, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable, Lightweight
Just completed Jogle with 4 others. Being able to see what/who is behind without constantly turning round was great. Brilliant on fast downhills.
Fitted well on right side of glasses, got used to it very quickly. Was slightly sceptical when someone suggested it but having used it would recommend strongly, well worth the money, will now try it out around town.

hard to use

PostedMay 21, 2012
No, I do not recommend this product.
I guess this is for American roads as it does not attach well to the right leg of my glasses.
