My Shop Item Rating: My Rating 4/5

I recently tried a pair of Windrush sports sunglasses at a summer triathlon.

I wore the glasses for 4-5 hours and found the comfort factor to be excellent. The quality, look and feel of these sports sunglasses is also excellent.

I found the glasses were lightweight and comfortable. The lenses wrap around nicely and give enough coverage that there was no unfiltered light reaching my eyes. I had thought that the lack of air vents at the top would cause them to fog, but the slight gap between the lens and frame itself (given they are interchangeable lenses) was enough to vent hot air behind the glasses.

I also noticed that the nose bridge on the Windrush sunglasses doesn't have shatterable or skewering parts, instead it features soft rubber flexible nosepads. My other sunglasses have a nose bridge with small metal rods between the nose contacts and the frame. If I were to come off of my bike I suspect the Windrush sports sunglasses would be less likely to cause injury.

Some of the more expensive sports sunglasses on the market are photochromatic but as triathletes start around 8am and finish by about 10am and the sun is already up, you're not getting much use out of the fact that they can tint on the fly.

I think the Windrush sports sunglasses represent excellent value for money and I would recommend them to others over my more expensive photochromatic sunnies that clocked in at $110.
