I'm looking for new cycling eyewear, but I need perscription inserts. Any opinions on either of these? I have a small to med face. Thanks!

Greenie,
Have you looked at Bolle? The Parole (I have) is for a smaller narrow face and has an insert available for prescriptions and has a large variety of interchangeable lenses. www.pairofshades.com sells the 4 lense and case deal @ $89? and the insert is probable $40 more. Can be seen in Colorado Cyclist catalog. POShades might also have the insert.

I would favor the Kerosene's as I believe the optics are better. LG was giving excellent advice as Bolle Vigilantes/Paroles are probably the best deal going. If money is no object then you might want to look into Oakley M-Frames or Racing Jackets as both can have prescription lenses instead of inserts (which can be heavy on your face). BTW I do believe the Klip's are lighter than the Kerosene's.

I have used the Klips for two seasons. I have not tried the Kerosene's although I had a poor experience with a prior pair of Rudy's (I had the model where the outer lense was on a hinge; the hinge deteriated quickly with use). The Kerosene does not use the hinge system, although the "eye vent" feature seems like some harmless marketing hype to me. The Klips have been worked well and been durable. They suffer from the same cleaning woes that any dual-lens system does. The price of both is the same, I believe.
try some clonesTig

No need to spend money on a name when it comes to sunglasses. I bought some Rudy knockoffs with 3 lenses from ProBikeKit in England http://212.67.202.137/%7Ebikekit1/index.php?cat=51&sub=00

The quality is suprisingly good for a clone. UV protection and all the same features. Saving $80+ for something that I will drop or damage within a year makes life a little more simple.
