Bolle Silium Smoke Lens Safety Specs
Best of both safety glasses
Working outside meant I needed a pair of safety glasses that had some sun protection. Most of such glasses cost a bomb however following other reviews I went for these lower cost glasses.
They do state to have UV protection in the lenses however the tint isnt great for full sun use but ideal for slightly shaded conditions. To me this wasnt a problem as I always wear a hat whatever the conditions.
Overall theyre a great fit and comfortable to wear day in day out, only real annoyance is when working bent over allowing the glasses to wobble and rattle thanks to the nose piece.

Bolle make good stuff
I have used bolle products for many years, I needed something offering eye protection and glare reduction, the frames are a metal back bar with sprung hinges, pleasant grey tint -not to dark, traditional adjustable nose bridges. only disapointement is they don't come with any sort of storage bag to protect them

Good price for the quality
Bought these glasses to stand in for a pair of broken sunglasses. They work brilliantly not too dark and wraps around properly. I've used them occasionally while grinding at eye Level.darkened the spark well yet I was still able to see what was going on in the background. Overall a good pair of safety glasses. And I now have also had to buy another pair for my dad who drives HGV's

Not quite the real deal in otherwords.
These are safety glasses, but the brand and styling raises ones expectations. Unfortunately imho they do not deliver.
My issue is that the the lenes slant into my cheeks so much that the specs actually sit on my cheeks rather than on the nose pads as they are meant to.
As a result they are not comfortable and no amount of tweaking the pads can change this and inevitably the lenses get mucky.
If this is an intended design feature to seal the gap between lens and face, it backfires a bit.
I didn't want to rate for reliability as only worn twice. So as system requires an entry I've put 1*
