PostSubject: Awesome sunglasses   Tue Apr 21, 2015 8:14 am

Purchased these for an upcoming holiday in which i'll be quad biking in the sand, and as i wear contacts i wanted some sunglasses which keep the wind and dust out:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Anti-Fog-Padded-Motorcycle-Sunglasses-Biker-Glasses-Free-Pouch-Postage-/161036780592?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item257e8a4430

And all i can say is wow, they work very well. Tested them out on my bike yesterday and i couldnt tell if i had my visor open or closed! Keep the wind out a treat, no misting up either. Look cool with or without a helmet and imo give the perfect tint for sunny day riding. Not too dark but not too bright.
Flexi arms make them relatively easy to slip into my full face helmet too. Would recommend

I have one alike for more than two years.
But with the wind, sun, rain, fog and using them on and off, the rubber lined took off from the interior frame. Using loctite super glue and they are like new.

You won't be disappointed. I dont know why i messed around with cheap aviators under my helmet for so long. Those things would mist up, get dirty easily and let in loads of wind.

Bloody hell, mine still ain't here. Just checked the tracking number & they were in the Yorkshire DC ready for distribution at 10,32 last night. Can't complain I suppose, first ordered on the 18th.

I received my black and amber glasses today, Brilliant. I am amazed at the quality of the glasses, better than some I paid three times as much for. I will now order some more, of a different coloured lenses for additional choice. I will order more of the amber ones when they are back in stock as well.
Great quality glasses at a great price.

Very nice but time will tell how the hold up against scratches.  By me it's all sand so they really take a beating.

They are made of plastic & sold at a low price, keep them out of the sand then. I have 5 small grandchildren, so I will keep the away from them as well as sand, simples.

They come with a handy little bag/sock to keep them safe and not get scratched whilst in the panniers.

After losing my last pair of these off my saddle bags on the RBL Ride of Respect trip & Sim and Pete happily telling me they nearly ran over them.   I have decided to buy another pair to replace them. Last time instead of buying normal tinted glasses, I got the Amber/black ones and loved them, if only for a while.
This time I bought the yellow/black ones and got them today & I love them even more than the last ones. Surprisingly when I first put them on, I was expecting to see everything permanently in yellow but that wasn't the case. My eyes adjusted within seconds and rather than constantly seeing everything with a yellow tint, it was just slightly darker than not having them on.
Got to recomend these glasses, great buy, great price & this time I found a UK seller at the same price, so they only took a couple of days to come.

I saw those ones when i ordered mine Dave, they look almost identical to the ones in my original post.
Still love mine, perfect for keeping wind out.
A must have for contact lens wearers imo

Hi Dave:
On your site link i saw that they have also the Locs sunglasses. I bought one from other Ebay seller and in my opinion, one of the best sunglasses for riding.
They didn't need the foam lined for wind protection as those from "Global Vision" i have also.
The "all around frame fits so well like a glove", that even in high speed, the wind makes no difference at all (i use it always with a jet helmet and not with a full face).
The lenses are so dark that even with a shinny sun pointed into my face, i can ride without have to turn my head down. .
The one i have is none of they sell on the site. Mine is like this:

Good Sunglasses, the only problem I've found is that they start rising up my face above 65mph and allowing wind into my eyes, great for round town though. I've ordered some with a strap that goes round the back of the head so hopefully they'll work better above 65mph? 3X the price though! but come with Three interchangeable lens's (dark,clear & mid) so it's like having three pairs of shades in one.
