Good lenses a little large

The wide coverage makes these good for cycling (my primary purpose) without looking too much cycling specific shades. The big frame and lens has its drawbacks as well; the frame sometimes touches my cheeks and they are prone to fogging in humid conditions. Once you getting moving any fogging clears quickly without leaving a visible residue. The frames are very light and comfortable (aside from them occasionally touching my cheeks when I'm sweaty) but don't offer much in the way of adjustability aside from slightly tightening the nose bridge.

The photochromic effect on these isn't extreme but it's adequate for my purposes. They don't get too dark, so probably not best for the desert, but they transition well from shady forest to open sun and are good for morning and evening rides. The tint is just enough to the amber side to increase contrast and make colors pop without looking unrealistic. The mirror effect is subtle and appealing (not like state trooper shades). The lenses seem to shed water and sweat fairly well and clean up easily with the included cloth.

Overall pleased with these but wouldn't recommend for anyone with a smaller than average size head or face.
