About Sidecars 4

  • Black Onyix frame
  • Interchangeable lenses
  • Removable, replaceable foam-lined gasket
  • Practical, inexpensive multi-purpose moisture chamber
  • See video below for lens changing instructions

Description (Rebecca's)

As a frame, the Sidecars 4 is lightweight and flexible, and when Ally and Susan and I tested it, we found that it tightened up easily with the strap on Susan (who has a small, narrow face) while also comfortable for me (I have a wide, rounder face). So I consider the fit pretty versatile.

The foam is the very soft squishy type. I like that this style has a replaceable foam gasket, because most lower cost goggle-like sunglasses just have to be thrown away if the foam gets worn out or too grubby. I didn't have any difficulty removing or replacing the gasket.

As regards the "quick-change" lenses, I found that process a little harder. Part of that is my vision (all black parts... I have really poor contrast sensitivity so it's hard for me to see them) but it also takes some practice to make it work. There's a button to press and you have to pull it apart a certain way. Personally, if I wanted both indoors and outdoors I'd rather buy two cheap frames and use the one I need than bother with swapping lenses, but I think for someone who normally uses them indoors (for example) and only now and then needs them for outdoors, or who wants a backup for outdoors or who only wants to take one pair on a trip, the convertible aspect would be very attractive.
