Okay, but poor fit and durability
First, the fit:
These kept slipping off, so I put on the headband that comes with them. That was okay, but I had to cut the headband around where my ears are so that it wouldn't push my ears out and make me look more stupid that I already do. This then created a lot of pressure (even after I tried adjusting the tension/length of the headband). The rubbery nose bridge part literally left bruises on my nose. I was pretty surprised by that. However, still, I must say that I didn't feel uncomfortable in them after 80+ miles out on the road. Just a lot of pressure.

Second, the quality:

(The good.) The visual quality is great, and I seriously can't imagine that paying hundreds of dollars more improves visual acuity "at all" . . . not even a little bit. I hear and read about distortion issues, but seriously, you'd have to be buying worthless sunnies from the gas/petrol station to get that sort of problem. In reality, I only encounter poor visual quality in cycling sunglasses as a "fear" and not as an experience. Maybe there is someone with a bad pair somewhere, if so then you just went too cheap or didn't read any reviews.

(The bad.) My pair broke on about the fourth time I wore them. I noticed right away that one has to be careful with the lenses when switching them out. I thought that with my being careful everything would be fine, but it turns out that it must be stressing the frame just too much and so as I was switching out the lenses, the frame just cracked. I put some superglue on it, but the crack just reopened during the ride. I'd say I am a fairly careful person when it comes to that sort of thing, wasn't in a rush, or anything, so I was surprised and bummed by the fact that they broke with not much force being applied.

Conclusion:
I wish these were going to last, I can deal with the fit issue and all that, since they were in the end good sunnies. However, I almost always get bitten when I try to find some cheap way out of something. So, I figure I just need to bite the bullet and step up my game to a better known brand that has some legacy quality I can rely on.

PROS: Good price and options, Foam windsweat barrier, Good lenses no distortion

CONS: Poor Fit, Weak

Did not work for me
I bought this mainly for the price but was very disappointed. The legs are too slick and they kept sliding. The lenses fogged up in no time during the summer heat and they were easily scratched with normal use. Finally the mechanism to switch lenses is poorly designed. Every time I tried to switch the lens I thought I was going to break the frame and always ended up with a smudged lens due to all the hard handling.

CONS: They Fog Up Easy, The Lenses Scratch Easily, Hard To Switch Lenses

NIce Glasses!
Glasses fit well, didn't bounce around or fall down my nose on first ride anyway. Used the low light lens (came with yellow lens) this morning at sunrise, very overcast, had no issues in woods with being too dark, almost brightened things up. Lenses are difficult to swap, but might just need to figure out technique. The wrap-around prescription lenses can be hard to get used to, caused a little depth perception issue, but after wearing for an hour last night to get used to them I rode this morning for an hour with no trouble. Should be good in winter for snowshoeing too.

Good quality and great support
After breaking the frame while changing lenses, I called Mark at Rockgarden, who was a pleasure to talk to. He patiently explained how to properly change the lenses, and arranged to ship me a replacement, to my RAGBRAI hotel no less! Simply the best customer service I've experienced in a long time!

PROS: Great Value, Good vision

CONS: Frame broke

Good alternative to contact lenses
Good for mountain biking with prescription lenses insert. The headband is best to use when riding on the rougher trails.
Remove the arms and the outer lenses and the prescription glasses will snugly fit inside the average sized ski googles for those also into winter sports.

PROS: Versatile

CONS: Arms don't mould, Weak Hinge

BEST USES: snow boarding, Mountain biking, Skiing
