I use the voltx full lenses +1's for a few years and find them good quality, lasts well and they rap round the head well in the helmet, I wish they did a shaded pair in full lenses.
What did you expect? They shrank the Toblerone, they are trying to shrink the KitKat, so the solution to global population....

Mind you I would be worried at that rate of shrinkage.......

Now where did I put that Roald Dahl book I was reading......'The Twits'.....something Orwellian about it.

Well bought some of those bifocal safety glasses and used them on a trip this weekend and I am very impressed and they have solved my problem.

I also bought a pair of the bifocal safety glasses. Tried them out this weekend, and they have done the job for me, very pleased with them.
