Strengths:    Fits my face very well. Nice deep, full-coverage, wrap-around lense. Decent looking.

Weaknesses:    As previous review said, glass lenses quite heavy and the frame is quite stiff and grabs your head firmly. May be uncomfortable on fat heads. They fit me well (I wear medium helmets). Despite this snug fit, they don't seem to sit well on top of your head. The ear pieces not the most comfortable on top of your ear because of very firm rubber.

Bottom Line:   
Very good glasses. If they had lighter polycarbonate lenses with similar optical qualities and somewhat softer and grippier ear pieces, they would be the ultimate sunglasses. As they are, they come close. 4 chilies overall.

Got them for $50, so 5 chilies for value.

Strengths:    excellent optics (clarity)

Weaknesses:    weight, a little too snug

Bottom Line:   
the optics on these things can't be beat. better than oakley. glass lenses offer way better clarity than polycarb, only drawback is they're heavy. so they're not as comfortable as my sliders. but on the plus side, the lenses WILL NOT SCRATCH. impossible to scratch these things.

fit is great. relatively low profile, but keeps out the wind real well. i wear contact lenses and have no problems with these at all.
