Frame: Woodgrain
Lens: Prizm Daily

The Catalyst is, in my opinion, an active version of the Holbrook/Garagerock style of large, square frames. With Unobtanium earsocks and straight arms that fit well under or over a hat, the Catalyst has a more secure fit than other frames with no socks. The lens covers a lot so I never had an issue with the frame being in my field of view. However, the frame is not contoured which lets light come in thru the sides slightly.

The Catalyst is a good choice for everyday wear; not too heavy, not too fragile and a cool modern look. If socks were still available in stores, I'd wear them a lot more.

Frame: Matte Black
Lens: Black Iridium Polarized

This is an updated Garage Rock in my book, but better, much better! I love the addition of unobtainium earsocks and icon which I think might be interchangeable down the road. The lines of the frame are much cleaner than the GR as well, gone are the rounded corners, replaced by straighter lines on the frame and legs. I'll be getting many more pairs of these.
