EWH Reviews- Revant Lenses
I have had my pair of Oakley sunglasses for awhile and have always dug them and have used them on my outdoor adventures. As much as I love the standard lenses that come with the shades, I have always wanted to try out new and different lenses for different situations. Or, as my grandpappy used to say, different strokes-lenses for different folks-frames.
Revant is a company that makes replacement lenses for Oakleys and other brands and I wanted to try out a pair and they were nice enough to send me their HC3 lenses. These lenses are designed to provide optimal polarization and clarity, all good things for people getting out and about in Southern California!
The HC3 is the premium lens Revant offers and after I spent 20 minutes searching through YouTube videos about how to replace my lenses, I finally mashed the lenses into their frame and gave them a whirl.
The best part? Revant makes these lenses for substantially cheaper than the replacement lenses you can buy from Oakley. So how did they do?
I took them out to my recent hike in Baldwin Hills and they performed great!
(look at that reflection!)
The optics were clear and there were no fogging issues (always a concern with hiking and sunglasses). The lenses were so sharp that you can take really cool pics with them!
(that is the sun in the clouds BTW)
Color me super impressed with these lenses! The fact that you can get lenses superior from the "off the shelf" offerings and at a better price, I think you should definitely check them out. I can't wait to see their other offerings!

The Oakley shades were provided by Revant for review purposes. I get no benefit whether you buy Oakley products or shop at Revant, its life, make your own decisions. I try to review things as honestly as possible but it is the internet, take everything with a grain of salt, thanks.
