High quality
I'm very happy with the Micropore Nickel glasses. They offer excellent visibility and sun protection. The mineral glass lens is very high quality. They are also very comfortable to wear; the leather side shields and nose bridge are both very soft, even in cold weather, and the ear pieces are flexible which provides a very comfortable fit. The glasses are well made and durable.
