Strength:

can't feel when wearing
stay put all day long

Weakness:

no hardshell case

I bought a pair of these with G40 Transitions lenses and have been very happy, but I have only used them for a few rides. So far, I have put them on in the early morning when light is dim, and took them off when I got home after a long day of riding.

They feel like nothing while wearing, and the grippy rubber ear socks just grab your helmet cage and stay put.

The full-on dark tint on the lenses isn't very dark (40% light transmission). I have pretty light sensitive eyes and although the January sun was bright when viewed directly, when out riding and looking around it wasn't a problem. Might need to make a different choice for summertime riding.

The low-light tint is very usable. Early morning just at sunrise is no problem. The rose-coloring even has nice vision enhancing properties. I just used them to commute home at sunset with the fog rolling in. Still could see pretty well.

No problems fogging while climbing yet. I just usually slide glasses forward a bit on my nose to clear that up when it happens.

The best part is I got them at 1/2 price. No hardshell case, but I'm usually pretty careful with sunglasses so it shouldn't be a problem for me; Overall, a nice pair of shades.
