LATCH is the perfect name
October 7, 2016
Originally I purchased them for the style. I normally wear square sunglasses but thought I'd go back to round. Out of the box, my first impressions was, "light weight". Then it made me think, cheap and flimsy but they are not. They are light by design and once finding out it was developed for skaters, it made sense. I did wonder why it was called the Latch. I even said to my wife, why do they have to try and come up with dumb names that don't really mean anything in the end. Well, I ended up eating those words because it turns out the glasses have a built in "LATCH" to clip onto your shirt. Probably for those skaters so they don't end up dropping their glasses and scratching them up on the ground.
Anyways, best glasses I have ever owned. I usually only wear glasses in my car driving but now I wear these everywhere. Right up until the Sun goes down. They are that comfortable and light. Very stylish and the latch works great.
My only complain is the price. $90 to $100 is what I think they are worth, but the base model is like $130. I would still buy it but makes me resent them for a day. Buyers remorse I guess.
Lastly, I would make a recommendation to Oakley, it would be awesome if they would make click on leather side covers for these. Ones that would not get in the way of the latch. I would pay an extra $30 for those. :)
