My Impressions:

Pros:
Lens changes from clear to smoke in less then 4 seconds.

Built in tear off posts.

Molded channels allow you to wear most glasses underneath the goggles.

Lens angle allows improved field of vision.

Cons:
None.

Bottom Line:
I don't usually wear goggles unless I have to when I am riding atv's. This is just personal preference and I enjoy a full faced helmet when the riding situation allows me to wear one.

One of the areas we always try and wear goggles is in dusty or sandy riding areas, like our last trip to the Sand Dunes at Silver Lake Michigan. A good pear of goggles is a must for riding in swirling sand conditions like you get at the Dunes. A full face will not keep the sand out of your eyes.

For that reason I chose the 3450 Light Sensitive, No Fog Goggles from ProGrip for our Sand Dunes Adventure. Also during the summer months in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where I live, the trails get really dusty at times, and these goggles fit right in for those times when the dust is just too much for a full faced helmet to endure.

First impressions for me is, these goggles fit nice, feel comfortable, and do not seem to fog up at all. A cool feature is the way the light sensitive lens change back and forth to the available light conditions. It is like having two pairs of goggles in one, and really are nice for riding anytime of the day.

Although we do not to the race thing where we need or use the tear away disposable lens's, this is a nice feature that racers will like.

Just for grins I inserted my reading glasses into the goggles and tried them on, and they seemed to work ok. So if you have small glasses, they should fit ok for you with these goggles. A large pair may be a bit of a squeeze.

Bottom Line is, if you are the rider that likes to wear goggles, and you want a quality pair that not only looks good, but does the job well, then I would highly recommend talking to your dealer about ProGrip.
