Comfortable? Yes. Nice looking? Yes. From the minute I put these glasses on I was impressed with the fact that they did not seem to irritate my temples. Too many times have I put on sport sunglasses that they make my head feel like it has been placed in a vice after only a short period of time wearing them.

The rubber arms of the glasses were more pleasant than most as well. Majority of times when glasses have rubber arms they will stay in place no matter what. But by the time you take them off you have two bald spots above and behind your ears because they have successfully ripped out all of your hair. This was not the case with the Graals. They stayed in place the entire time I wore them, even after I began to sweat heavily, and yet I had the exact same number of hairs post ride, as I did pre ride. What a nice surprise.

Overall comfort of these glasses was extremely good and after a short time riding with them I barely knew I had them on. Not knowing you have sunglasses on is a good and a bad thing at the same time. Not knowing that you are wearing glasses when considering their level of comfort is great. However not knowing you are wearing glasses when considering the ability to see better is not so good. I have light eyes that are particularly sensitive to the sun and glare. I will only purchase polarized sunglasses as they are the only sunglasses with which I do not have to squint when wearing them. The Graals were not polarized and therefore I found that I had to squint more than I would have liked to in order to be able to see better. Had the Graals come with polarized lenses I feel that they would have been the perfect sport glasses for me.

They have a smaller frame which is good for my face because I have a smaller, more narrow face than most, and therefore most glasses make me look like an insane insect. The Graals however were close to my face and hugged around to my temples and behind my ears. I truly enjoyed wearing these glasses and felt comfortable and confident in the way they made me look. Like I said before though, polarized lenses are a must for me. Especially when riding on the road on bright sunny days. The glare off of the windshields of cars is extremely important to eliminate when manuvering through traffic and the Graals non-polarized lenses just did not cut the glare out enough for my liking.

To compliment the Rudy Project brand from a professional in the eye care field, as I was leaving my optometrists office and he noticed my sunglasses, he said "Rudy Project...Great glasses, too bad more people don't know about them."
