Model/Year: 2014

Pros: perfect optics for riding in darker wood areas - very happy with the brighter lenses! great fit on gnarly terrain; extremely lightweight, nice custom designs

Cons: -fog up if sweating hard / high humidity... but that's what all shades do

Recommendation: definitely great shades for trail bikers, change lenses as needed,tbh i don't miss the polarized glasses, shades get scratches...

Pros: Look great
Don't fog
Don't fall off
extremely light

Cons: Seem to scratch easily

Recommendation: I love these glasses. They were a gift as my go-to sunglasses to use casually, but I have realized that they are very good on the trails!

Pros: -So light you can't tell they're there
-Rubber grippers on sides to keep them on your head
-Replaceable lenses

Cons: -Pricey
-Replacement lenses are pricey and the lens will get scratched while riding

Recommendation: Great sunglasses. They don't fog up as much as some others that I've used but I still get fog when stopping and trying to catch my breath.

Pros: Excellent fit. Very clear optics. Extremely durable and comfortable. I have several pair of the half jackets due to how good they are. I use them for different sports and functions. I use dark lenses for bright days and light colored lenses for overcast days. I have a pair with clear lenses in them that I use for shooting practice at the shooting range for safety, as well as indoor volleyball tournaments to keep from getting poked in the eye while blocking at the net. The different colored lenses can be changed in and out of the same frame, which makes them so adaptable. I usually get mine with the XLJ style lenses, for slightly more coverage area of my eyes. Fit perfectly under most mountain bike or skate style helmets.

Recommendation: I highly recommend the Half Jackets. They are especially good for those with a smaller or thinner face. I would recommend the FLAK JACKETS for those with larger or thicker faces.

Model/Year: 2.0

Pros: Don't scratch easily, durable, clear picture

Cons: pricey for polarized

Recommendation: Spend the extra money and get the polarized, it is expensive but worth the money. They are great glasses and will last for quite some time.
