72 year old cyclist. Been across the US twice and North to South 6 times on a bicycle. I found the Exception to be durable and dependable . They came in handy when I had to flip up the shades to read the map. And the option to easily change lenses on those cloudy days was great. I believe I been wearing Exceptions for nearly 25 years. I'm on my 4th set. If you take care of them they last. Stay Safe and Stay Upright, Bill
I have a very high prescription and tiny face so most frames don't fit and wrap-around sport sunglasses are no good because of the distortion. These are the answer. I wear them mostly for tennis and have the Rydon with optical dock for cycling and running. I am so afraid of the exception being discontinued that I just ordered a third spare set of lenses and a third nose piece just in case I need them. They are beautifully made and I love the giant case that fits multiple pairs of glasses and spare lenses. Finally I can serve into the sun! I would give them 100 stars if it was an option.
I LOVE my RP Rydon slim Rx sunglasses but I’d really like the convenience of the flip-up shades. I sooooo wish RP would make the Exception in a smaller size to fit women’s faces. Please ... I’d buy them in a heartbeat.
