        Overall

        Very impressed and happy with mine. Violet iridium is not ideal for on-snow situations, so choose your lens accordingly, but if you want a beach-dweller that makes you look classy and cool it's perfect. The only real downside is the price, but if you've got some money to spend on quality, it's totally worth it.

        Performance

        I have the Holbrook in Matte White/Violet Iridium, and the lens is relatively light. It deals well with "cloudy bright" conditions and sunshine, but if you're on snow, especially on a glacier in the summer, I would recommend a darker lens. I love how light the frames are, it's a major plus in my mind. I like being able to forget that I am wearing them!

        Design

        You'll look like a super-smooth-fly-pimp for sure, I did! In all seriousness, the Holbrook looks good, it's got old-school styling with just the right amount of newschool influence.

        Value

        When it comes to sunglasses, you definitely get what you're paying for. The Holbrook will retail for over 150$ at most stores, which is pretty pricey for many people. Oakley has built its reputation on excellent optics that don't compromise, so expect to foot a decent bill for these bad boys.

        Fit

        First off, the Holbrooks are sunglasses, not goggles (there's no sunglasses category, just to clarify). Now that we've got that out of the way, on to my thoughts. The glasses are really comfortable and also very light, as you can expect from Oakley. I don't have a weird head shape (that I know of), so fit shouldn't be an issue if your head is of normal-ish proportions.

        Durability

        I always keep mine in a bag when they're not in use, and I don't have any scratches on the lenses. I am careful though, because I'd rather not treat them poorly. One thing that is notable is that the frame screws have not loosened at all, which I have seen happen in a few pair of Dragons and Anons. No one likes having to find a tiny screw driver every morning just to wear sunnies, and the Holbrooks have saved me on that front.
