Here's what others have to say...

Castelli really hit a home run with the Nanoflex fabric ? it's brushed for warmth, and repels wind and moderate moisture (rain, snow, etc.) with relative ease. No wonder why the Garmin guys insist on this stuff. Downside: zero articulation in the construction. No elbow bend or shaping makes the warmers bunch up where your arms bend. Not exactly uncomfortable, but not ideal either. Still a great product.

"Asian Fit" tends to turn a lot of prospective wearers away, simply because it's a bit misleading. This delineation is simply reserved for certain Oakley frames with a slightly narrower and deeper nose bridge. They certainly fit a good many Asian facial profiles, but other facial types are not a complete exclusion. To really dial in the right fit, Oakley also includes a second pair of specially-sized nose pads with the AF Split Jackets which allow the frame to sit a little bit higher on your face. If you struggle with finding sunglasses that don't perch comfortably on your nose and bump the tops of your cheeks, the Asian Fit might be for you. Frame width is not part of the equation here; if you have a wider head, they'll still fit, but if you have a wider or 'taller' nose, you'll probably want the standard Split Jacket. Fit aside, the Split Jacket is an excellent medium-coverage sport frame that lacks some of the overt aggression of the Jawbone, while still delivering top-tier performance with an intuitive lens interchange system. Note that all Split Jacket lenses will fit any model of Split Jacket frame - Asian Fit, or otherwise.

* I have a medium-large sized head and prefer the coverage of the Jawbone, but this Split Jacket still fits fine - it's just a matter of getting the nose bomb fit just right
* changing out the nose bombs on the Split Jackets is easy, but there is a specific technique to doing it without damaging the mounts:
1) unlock the nose piece to open the frame's "jaw" and remove the lens
2) take notice of the tiny "claw" opening on the nose piece (the part that attaches to the alloy bar in the frame), grip the frame firmly (you might find it easier to close the jaw first), and pull the nose piece directly downward - opposite the attachment point and away from the frame

Honestly not a big fan of any saddle bag, but this was a nice compromise. Went with the Small and was pleased at how neatly and securely it tucks directly beneath the saddle. While you should expect a pretty snug fit, the Small should fit a single tube, a C02 cartridge + inflator, and a pair of levers. There's also a clever external pouch on the underside of the straps for your multi-tool, which is especially handy as it grants quick access to this regularly-needed tool without forcing you to dig through the pouch. Bear in mind that if you plan on carrying your phone or any snacks in the pouch, I would recommend getting the Medium size.

I'll come right out and say it: the Hard Kore is not the most cleverly named, and it certainly lacks some of the refined sculpting and frame design that I've come to expect from sunnies at this price point. It even almost feels dated in both of those respects. However, there's something about the Hard Kore (ugh) that still feels refreshingly utilitarian -- a timeless sport-performance profile, if you will. It's pretty clear that Kaenon is putting all their eggs in the basket of optical performance, and luckily their SR-91 lenses deliver in spades. For me, having a contrast-enhancing lens that protects and cuts glare on sunny days but delivers perfect clarity on cloudy days is a huge win -- the C12 (copper, 12% light transmission) is the ultimate in all-day, all-sport versatility. Plus, its mirrored finish looks absolutely badass. No complaints on the fit or wearability - it's definitely a large wrap frame with beefy arms and big lenses. The rubber nose pieces and long rubber temple tips are more than adequate to keep things snug. Still, if you have a smaller mug, or just prefer smaller sunnies for sport, check out the also unfortunately named Soft Kore.

* made in Italy, if you're into that sort of thing
