The Be the Ball Sport Optics are lightweight and comfortable. The style is very similar and the eye protection very comparable to other more expensive glasses I have had in the past. The difference in weight is significant. At first, I was concerned that the light weight would equate to less durability but this has turned out to be untrue. I have (accidentally) dropped and even kicked the glasses and there has been no sign of wear. Can't say that about other brands I have owned. I not only recommend these glasses but suggest you will want to tell your friends about them - my wife now owns a pari of Be the Ball.
