Good idea, terrible construction
On first use, I found the ability to flip up and flip down the view-limiting device very useful (simulating going into and out of IMC conditions). However, the product is very poorly made. The white visors are held in by a small bolt and nut that fell out after only a few uses. I was luckily able to find this hardware, tighten it up and super glue it. Not too many flights later the white shades no longer snapped in properly and would completely fall off every time you flipped up the shades, rendering them useless. Might be acceptable if they cost $5, but terrible for a $30 product.

Look elsewhere for a VLD
Jeppessen needs to stick to the literature. Their books are great, foggles... not so much.

They are uncomfortable to wear for any time over 30 minutes. They don’t withstand much abuse either. Many of my other classmates have had to epoxy, rubber band, and tape these things back together just to get through 30 hours of instrument training. Unfortunately, I will be spending more money again on a VLD.

Perfect for me
I started my ifr training with foggles. But because I wear glasses with progressive lenses I had trouble seeing. Plus taking them on and off, with my glasses was difficult. My instructor had some JeppShades and let me try them. They worked perfectly. No need to take them off, just flip them up. The best part is you are not looking thru another layer plastic subject to glare so you can see much better. The quality is acceptable.

Returned
These IFR glasses did not offer any visibility for me I could see pretty much everything outside. I wear glasses and these just don't work well with glasses. The way they have to fit, the view just isn't limited.

Worst product purchased from Sporty's
I purchased this product for instrument training and assumed with the high costs of $30, these training glasses would last for years to come. Long story short, they lasted 2 training flights. The cheap materials and lack of a secured screw the size of a pen tip went missing from the hinge. Now I have to spend more money to purchase a different pair to continue my training. The cheap materials used to make these glasses are no where near the cost of $10!!! I've never been to impressed with Jeppesen products and this confirmed I will avoid their products in the future.

Simulated IMC
This product is much easier to use for simulating IMC. The only issue i have is the blue die from the head band bleeds onto to my temples. It washes off easy but maybe they should consider not dying the headband.
