Ryder Eyewear… and Gil.

I received my pair of Hex’s from good guy Chris over at Ryder Eyewear just over a week ago. I have been wearing them all over the place now. My Oakley’s, while fine for running, aren’t the most comfortable for everyday use (fit or style). I am really enjoying my new glasses and out of 4 different pair I can choose from when I leave the house, I always look for the Ryders. I still can’t understand how they can be as inexpensive as they are for what they are. For 40bucks I have a new fav!

The deets.

  • Black on Black, can’t go wrong. Lots of other colors, even girl colors.
  • The tinting of the lens is just right. Not too dark that you heave to take them off in cloudy of lower than full sunlight conditions, Not too light that they are ineffective
  • Very comfortable
  • Ran half Marathon on Oct 2, had no issues with shifting, falling or fogging.
  • very light on face.
  • Very stylish, makes me seem cooler than I really am. I like that.
