EWH Reviews Revant Elite Mirrorshields
Those folks at Revant, they never stop improving their products and who am I to stop them? I was a huge fan of their HC3 replacement lenses for my Oakleys so when they said they had a new Elite lens for me to try out, I jumped at the chance.
Don't get me wrong, Oakley lenses are pretty great but I like my Revant's better and their price point is far far less than what Oakley will get from ya. The clarity that these lenses give you, while not imposing a grey fog over everything is the real key. I don't feel like I am wearing sunglasses while using these lenses which I think is the biggest compliment I can pay them.
So how were the elites?
I used the Elites on the trail in Seattle, on a golf course darkened by redwoods and also while I was tooling around Seattle staring at the water and in each light condition they worked great! The lens is just as good or better as the HC3 which was pretty darn good to begin with. If you want to change things up with your Oakley (or your Ray Ban or your Smith or your, well you get the idea), then Revant is the way to go!

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.
