Ektelon Strobe Navy Racquetball Eyewear

Comments: Love these. Never fog, unfortunately the hinge is a weak spot. Now on my second pair. Ektelon would have a great product if they could reinforce the hinge.

Comments: Awesome googles.  Went thru several pair from various companies until I got these.  My friends are constantly cleaning theirs due to sweat, but not me.  With these, the lenses never touch my face.  I clean them before each day of playing.  No need to clean after or during each game.

Comments: Hinge broke on the first pair and the second pair broke in half, both from ball hits to the side. But I'm sticking with the model because they are by far the best ventilated goggles I've found and very comfortable.

Comments: I have been playing wearing the Strobes for about a year now. Have survived three hard and direct forehand shots, two of which took the glasses right off my face. No real damage to face or glasses. They vent well, no fogging, and are quite comfortable. Slight scratching, but still serviceable after a year of regular use.

Comments: I played with these glasses for a month before I took a ball off of the back wall that hit me in the glasses and cracked the lens right in two above the nose piece.  I loved the glasses, but would question their durability.

Comments: I really love them! The only thing I don't like is that mine broke (the hinge) but that's why I'm buying some more! They never fog and they're very comfortable!

Comments: A comfortable pair of glasses. Never fogged up but the plastic is very weak. Broke two times in a couple of months.

Comments: Great design; No fog; no problems with the hinges; did, however, use an ammonia free glass cleaner on them and ruined them...looks like it chemically burned the surface.
From: Brad, Las Vegas, NV, USA 02/07

Comments: Agree with the other posters. Great fitting, did not fog. But I bought 2nd pair after first pair's hinge broke and second pair broke soon after unfortunately.
