Rudy Project Jekson Reviewed
Rudy Project Jekson
Features:
  • Poly Carbonate Lenses
  • Quick Change Lens Technology
  • 2 sets of lenses standard
  • RPOptics provide full UV protection
Reviewed by Garuch

Overall out of 10: 6.5

Well it had to happen at some point, and this is weird, but I am not deeply in love with these glasses, that being said I have probably worn them more for daily use than any other pair of Rudy's. While in some aspects less radical than many others in the Rudy line, they seem to come across as more "traditional" and thus suited for street wear. Since I have been wearing contacts a lot the last few weeks I have been wearing them a lot.

So what's wrong? I have extensive peripheral vision and I see the underlying frame a lot, particularly the bottom of the frame. The frame actually sits in back of the lenses and is substantially smaller than the perimeter of the lenses. The effect is as I mentioned above a traditional looking set of glasses. I am sure it made sense to someone at some point, but Rudy makes so many free floating lens designs that the frames appear somewhat of a throwback technologically.

As always the optical quality is excellent and the vision with the glasses is superlative, save of course the obstructed field. I do get used to it, but I also find it annoying when I first put on the glasses. Sadly, and this is a first, I'd pass on these.
