I ordered two pairs, one smoked, one clear last week. Waiting for them to come in. Right now, I'm using a pair of cheap h-d glasses I bought 3 years ago that has the foam separating form the frame. I have reattached the faom with doublesided tape a couple of times. Tired of them, plus they don't have much periphial (sp) vision. Are these "bestMCglasses" any better? For night riding, I'm using an old pair of factory safety glasses, but they are getting scratched up pretty bad. I hope they get here tomorrow, I'm supposed to go on a 200 mile ride the next day.

Just ordered a smoked pair for my wife. Hey Ian-was wondering why they don't come smoked in the "B" frame???? I like goggles that "strap on". Of course, before I give them to her..I will have to do the 80 MPH tear test..

I feel that they are just the typical $15 mc glasses. Be careful- when the arms are folded in, the ends scratch the inside of the lens' pretty bad. happened on both pairs that i have.

Any pair of glasses you have to be careful about the arms scratching--but seems a little weird to me why would the arms be bending that much in to touch the lenses? I have dozens of these glasses shipped and when I receive them none of the arms are touching the lenses...

The "B" models weren't up to par with the "A" models, so I stopped carrying them. I've had more positive remarks about the "A" then the "B" anyway, and the "A" really seem to work for everyone.

Thanks!
any idea on the cost of the transitions when they become available?? I have the HD glasses now, I like them, good tight fit... but I spent 110 bucks on them. I really like the idea of transitions, just ask Vegas1200 about our ride at Big Bear.... anyway, I was looking at HD's transitions that they sell, I only looked for a second (price was somewhere around 250+ if I remember correctly). If the price is reasonable, I may have to consider the transitions....

The Best MC Glasses get my seal of approval. I bought a pair at the end of last season, but never really got to try them out. (When its cold out, I buy MC stuff to keep me from jonesing too much) Anyway, I got to try them for a 100 mi run today and they are among the best glasses I've ever used. It was between 48* - 53*, and overcast. They did a good job keeping wind out of my eyes while still letting my eyeballs breath. I wear contacts, so too much wind is a real pain. I'm very happy with this product. Gonna get some more!

Thumbs up

Just ordered the smoked polarized. Already have the clear and smoked. They definetly reduce eye watering at speed and are comfortable , the fit and quality are great for $15.00. Would no doubt order again.
