  • Fantastic moisture chamber sunglasses for small faces

    Hey guys,

    It's been a while since I last posted, but what I found today was so awesome, I just had to share in the hopes that it helps someone else.

    Wiley X AirRage sunglasses has been my go-to sunglasses. But maybe a couple of years ago, Wiley changed the foam gasket, so if anyone buys a new pair now, you'll get a pair that doesn't fit narrow faces quite as well anymore (the new-style gaskets leave a gap for wind to get in at the temples).

    So, if that is a problem for you, try these:

    Harley Davidson Tori sunglasses. http://www.harley-davidson.com/store...asses---bronze

    They cost 50 USD per pair, and I just bought a few pairs at Disney World, of all places (Harley Davidson shop in Disney Springs).

    The really cool thing is that their foam gasket has a nice low profile, so the sunglasses still look fashionable. I'm thrilled! You can't remove the foam gasket, but the glasses have a 1-year warranty according to the sales person at the shop where I bought them. So even worst case scenario if they only last a year, 50 bucks for a year's worth of fashionable moisture chamber wearing is not half bad.

    I liked them so much I bought several pairs.

    Anyone have a time machine so I can go back and undo this mess?

    The 7 eye Churada also fit perfect for small faces. http://www.7eye.com/Churada/.
    I tried them on at a Harley Davidson store today. They have a larger gasket than the Harley Davidson Tori glasses, so they are bit less stylish, but pretty nice regardless. Kind a sleek looking.

      Nice! does the gasket form a full seal without gaps for you?

        Thank you very much SAAG.

        I wear the airrage too. And the new thin gasket is a real problem. But you can find the thicker airrage gasket on the Wiley-X website: http://www.wileyx.com/ProductDetail/...hicker-version

        I purchased some this week. Let's see if they are fine as before.

          The 7 eye Churada gave a full seal with no leaks when I tried them on ... I have them on order so I'll be testing them out soon.

            The problem with those types of glasses is that unlike WileyX or 7 eye you cannot get them fit with prescription lenses....sigh....F/G

              Not 100%, but better than the new Wiley's gaskets. AND, these Harley Davidson ones look almost like normal sunglasses so I feel like I look NORMAL when wearing them - It's been YEARS since I had a pair of sunglasses that looked perfectly fashionable AND protected my eyes hehe
