Good glasses. Nice build quality on this model. I love the design. Only thing I’d change is to darken the tint just a bit. As is they don’t do much* to darken the glare, yet they seem too dark to wear indoors for the most part. That being said, they work well enough that I use them driving unless it’s really really bright. FYI, the black lofi are on the pretty damn dark side. The tourtoise lofi are perfect darkness for almost all sitauation other than cruising to the sun on Jeff Bezos cock rocket. They are my all time favs.
