Great For Road Cycling

I originally bought my Half Jackets with Transitions lenses for the versatility that photochromic (variable tint) lenses provide. I couldn't be happier with the Half Jackets; however, when I took up road cycling as a hobby, I quickly realized that the regular shaped lenses did not provide enough coverage when I'm riding against the wind. I bought a set of XLJ lenses to address that issue and now, I think I have the best of both worlds -- regular shaped Transitions lenses for casual wear and XLJ lenses for cycling. If I had known, I would've opted for XLJ Transitions lenses (assuming that they exist)!
