Strengths:    Positively the baddest pair of shades you'll ever slap on your grill. They put comparable Oakleys to shame in comfort, fit and durability. Love the rubber pads over the nose and ears to help keep them snug. If you're going to flailing in any sporting activity, you needn't worry about losing them. Once on your face, it takes a hurricane to pry them loose. And the all-important look is second to none.

Weaknesses:    Does tend to fog up easily. So comfortable that you'll often forget you're wearing them.

Bottom Line:   
The're last pair of sunglasses you'll buy because you will never want anything else.

Strengths:    Zippers are comfortable, they have clear distortion free optics that offer no wind resistance and stay in place at any speed. They great looking and come in many colors. I use Zippers for biking, motorcycling without a windsheild, boating and snow skiiing. They are strong and will not bend or break easily. If you leave them at a resturant like I did, they'll go missing very quickly and you'll have to buy another pair. Keep them on your face at all times!!!!!!!!!!!

Weaknesses:    Zippers can fog up when you heat up. Keep moving and use Smith anti-fog cloth.

Bottom Line:   
Zippers are the best all around if you want a all day all night comfortable pair of shades. They look especially good in your convertible and come in some great colors, but I chose sliver. They are average priced but all sunglasses seem expensive. If you find a better price email me.

Riding the zipper

I spent the week cooped up in a conference center in Florida, sometimes those things are OK for a break from work, but its quite another story when you're one of the presenters. I did seven presentations in 4 days and countless meetings. By the time departure time rolled around last night I was slee ... Read More »

I'm about to do a DIY frame bag for my On One Fatty, and I'm looking for some advice on attaching it to the frame. It looks like most use multiple velcro tabs. This seems like a good route, but I feel like I can do better, since this will be custom to my frame. My idea is to completely enclose ... Read More »

Wolvhammer - zipper issues?

I was finding the zippers on these boots a little stiff or sticky so I sprayed the teeth with silicone lube. LBS owner told me he has used a liquid wax lube on his and that they've had a pair come back with a broken zipper recently. Rumour has it the zipper for next year will be a beefier model. ...

I found the bags at wallymo for $2.99 in several colors, measuring 12" x 7.5", made tough nylon. They hav ... Read More »
