I'm on a roll with these reviews. Might as well keep going. After all, a rolling stone gathers no moss, right Keith Richards?
Today, we have the Echo Kit motorcycle glasses -- another recent gift.
Wait a minute. Motorcycle glasses? you ask.
Yes, I subscribe to the Whatever Works School of Thought, and these lightweight, rubberized frames are just what I'm looking for in running sunglasses.
Additionally, I wanted yellow-tinted lenses because I find them most versatile (good for blocking glare from the sun or snow without reducing visibility). The Echo Kit features interchangeable lenses, providing all the versatility I could ask for with three tints: "Super Dark," yellow and clear.
The wraparound frames provide good visibility and blocks out wind. The glasses fit snugly without being too tight, and the conforming fit reduces bouncing. Also, I look totally rad in them.
The lenses are a bit difficult to swap, and there were no instructions on how to do so. I felt like I was going to break the frames as I tried to remove the lenses. However, once I figured it out, it was easy. Clue: Pull the lenses from the nose, not the temples.
The glasses come with a padded carrying case with individual housing for the frames and the additional lenses.
Now, if only I could get some daylight to run in so I can wear them more often.
Booze Hound Rating: 4 fingers, on the rocks
[Drunkard's note: The Booze Hound rating system is based on a good pour. Up to five fingers, either "on the rocks" or "neat." If you can't figure out what's good and what's bad, you need to spend more time drinking.]
