|Just got a pair myself. Haven't had time to put them through their paces, but they've made a very good first impression.|
|I have had a pair for about a year.||czardonic|

|They hold up really well, fit me good, and you can get a prescription insert if you need it. Prefer them to my Briko's that I have now-the Bolle's are made MUCH better.|

|I bought a pair of Bolle on an online clearance (not Performance) earlier this year. I use them with the prescription inserts. They fit comfortably, seem durable,and have good coverage. They do seem to fog up a bit easier than the Brikos I was using|
|I just returned a pair...||JFR|

|of the Rogue Polarized model.
I had serious trouble changing the lenses... they came with the nearly clear orange tint lenses. I tried changing to the brown lenses, but barely got one in and simply could not get the other in... neither could several other people including a Bolle dealer (who admitadly didn't have any experience with that model). Bummer, cause otherwise I think I would have liked em.
Maybe there's a secret trick, the "owners manual" was useless as it appeared generic for all Bolle glasses.

|But once you get the right technique down, it's a "snap" (pun intended). They are, after all, French =)|

|I have trouble changing lenses and it has nothing to do with technique -- one side just won't snap in firmly, mainly when I try to insert the pink lens. One of these days, I'm going to remove my glasses during a ride or try to wipe something off the lens and it's going to pop right out. If they hadn't been super cheap on clearance ($20), I would have returned them long ago.|

|i just ordered the Bollé® Vigilante in red for about $50 altogether. i figure if i don't like them, i'll just return them - no biggie.|

|I've had the Parole with prescription insert since this spring.
I like them a lot. The lens changing is somewhat difficult
but once you get the hang of it it's not so bad.
