I think the looks of these glasses are ok for the price, especially if you have a big face/head like me. They also seemed very durable and ready to stand up to the abuse probably better than the Oakleys I previously owned which were prone to scratching and the lenses peeled all too often. Visibility was fine, not as good as the Oakleys, but definitely good enough for me (road racer, often long days in the saddle year round). Unfortunately the fit was a bit tight around the temples. Also the lens replacement mechanism, although I appreciate the durable build and stability, was a pain. Taking off the nose piece was very awkward and also resulted in bad finger smudges. I was actually going to keep them regardless because for the price I still think they were a solid pair glasses, despite the shortcomings, however there was some weird unexplainable black staining on the top part of the frame that put these into the "it's not worth it" category. I think it might have to do with the gummy nature of the frame (vs the more plasticy, standard frame material that comes with Oakleys, etc.). But that is just a guess. I ended up spending $60 more to get some Smiths which are in the postal right now. It's a shame because I know Scott is not as competitive in this realm (from my impression) as some of the other brands and I really wanted to keep the less expensive, more utilitarian offering, but alas it did not work out. I hope my pair was just a fluke. Competitive Cyclist customer support was great as always. Returned these and paid the difference for the Smiths. Easy peasy.
