I like these glasses. Comfortable, durable, and versatile. Decent design. Pros: - Design is decent. I prefer more rectangular glasses, than the cat like shape of the Raptor. But I love the fact that the lens wraps around so that your peripheral vision is wider with them on. - They are light weight enough that it doesn't sit heavy on the face. - No awkward and annoying pressures around the eyes and bridge of nose. The Oakley type arms keeps the glasses in place with very little to know movement, or adjustments required. - The multiple lenses add versatility in different lighting conditions. Although, even in bright days, the amber does a pretty good job of blocking out most of the bright light so that you don't squint. I've used the smoke lens a few times, but my go to are the amber and clear lenses. - The included strap is a nice addition for highway riding. It's easily attached to the arms, and wraps snuggly round your head. No worries about the glasses flying off your face at high speeds. Cons: - These glasses do an okay job of blocking out most of the wind. I wear contacts so this is very important. However, during windy conditions and riding at higher speeds, wind tends to sneak in, drying out my contacts. I would have to start blinking to moisten my contact lens, then adjust the glasses so that they have a better seal around my eyes. Along with that, I have to adjust my head position a certain way to prevent excess wind from entering and drying up my contacts. This is using the close cell foam. I've tried the open cell foam (also included), and it does a better job of blocking the wind, but it's also thicker. And makes the glasses look bulky on my face. A trade off of comfort and style. Since, I am able to adjust on the fly with the wind issue, I chose style. - The pros that that multiple lenses makes these glasses versatile in any lighting conditions, is also it's con. Since you have to carry the extra lens, if you end up riding from day to night. And you have to swap them out. But with the additional cleaning of the lens to get rid of your fingerprints, making sure your vision isn't distorted, it takes a little more time. And if you don't have a saddle bag or ride with a backpack, you end up having to use extra pockets you have for storage. - Bobster advertises that the lenses are anti-fog. Well, they still fog up. But only when your at a stop, and air temp is cooler than your face (the recipe for condensation). But it clears up almost instantly once you start riding. But not a comfort considering they're still fogged up for the first few feet when you start moving. Your able to see through the fog if you look and focus really hard. In my experience, it's enough time for it to clear up. But if someone suddenly just darts out in front, you can be in trouble. Most times I would adjust it at a stop so that more air can get in to cool the inside and stop the condensation. But on the move, I would have to re-adjust again so that there is a better seel and wind doesn't dry my contacts. I'm giving this product a generous 4 stars. But it's more 3.5. Especially how much I spent on it. $60+ dollars isn't exactly cheap. If they fixed the cons, or dropped the price to about $40-45, it would be a solid 4 stars at least. If you can live with one colored lens (most likely clear for night riding), I would recommend the Shield II ($16).

I am on my second pair...almost third as I just found them after leaving them at a restaurant! I use these as my main sunglasses too. When a lens is scratched..no big deal to order the $10 replacement set instead of the entire package. the 2 selectable "foam" inserts give you a good choice of the major types of insulations on the market...the open cell is a bit more airtight, but a little too warm perhaps in the summer. these are also good for wider heard sizes, as they flex easily.

Great riding glasses! Perfect to swap out the lenses for the different riding conditions one may encounter. Only draw back noticed was the closed cell foam came unglued on one of the two pair we own and thus needs replacement, good thing the replacement can be obtained!! Wife lost her set and we are replacing hers with the exact same set! Would definitely buy them again and recommend this model to anyone!
