2 months agoDurability2 / 5Reliability2 / 5Performance2 / 5Ease Of Use2 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?NoInexpensive and AdequateEvery plane should have a view limiting device on board. These will fit over your glasses, but not comfortably. When you put your headset on, the tips of the bows will dig into the side of your head. I would have been further ahead putting some masking tape onto a pair of safety glasses that are meant to be worn over glasses.July 17, 2019Purchased
10 months agoResponse from Sporty's Pilot ShopThank you for the review. These Training Glasses have adjustable hinges. This allows you to rotate the temple pieces upward and put them on top of the headset ear cup.July 18, 2019Doug RDurability3 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use1 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?YesFit problemsNot great. Less than comfortable with my glasses. Looks like I need to buy an old fashioned hood. Without glasses I think they would be great.Thanks,Bruce G.March 19, 2019Purchased

My two nits would be how it fits under my headset (I have a Lightspeed) and in doesn't offer much protection against bright sunlight when you have eyes that prefer sunglasses. So far they have held up well bouncing around my flight bag.December 5, 2018Purchased
