On a related note, are we sure Bono's glasses aren't mirrored at some point in the concert? I was watching the Meerkat portion or the Paris II show on the HD file that is out. His glasses seemed awful reflective and dark. Does he switch glasses for the e-stage set? Just my observation. I'll try and post some screen shots when I get home later.

Just heard back from Revo - here are all of the translucent colors:

Hey Doug! To get the see-through ones, make sure you select the "custom" blue lens color (or lavender, green, or brown!). The custom ones are the see-through and are different than our normal Revo Blue Water lens!

I always wondered about the green and brown - even though Bono doesn't wear them on stage, I have a back stage pic and you can see his case with brown and green versions. I don't have the ability to post pics on here anymore but if one of you who does has an e-mail I'll send the pic to you so you can post.

Wow, that was FAST! Just checked the Revo website to see if they sold out of the Lavender colored lens and they did. I wonder if they will make more or they'll wait until the other colors sell out first.

Can't wait!

A SHAME !!!
I just woke up and get the news with the forum. In France : no email from Revo (tough I contact them last week for the 4th time).
Rushed to my iMac and the purple colour was already non available. I am disgusted.
Bought them with green custom lenses (bman was wearing this model in Paris Bercy on the 11th of November), but wanted purple too...
It's a shame that Revo really did not communicate properly.

So I guess I bought the same model. Pretty sure he had them most of the time during the end of European leg.

Lavender are available again. Bought one pair. Twice today I guess that's enough.

Just got an e-mail from Revo - 20% off all sunglasses today only by using the code CYBERMONDAY. Looks like it applies to the Sungazer model too....wish they would have had this last week

As far as i understand Bono wears onstage the Puple (lavender), a pink (which doesn't look to be avail for sale), and a blue....but is this the Custom Blue or the Blue Water shade?

nVM: just saw the post with email response stating the CUSTOM are the see-thru like Bono's.

Too bad his Pinks aren't available

If you watch the middle e-stage portion of the leaked Paris HD concert, you can clearly see Bono is wearing mirrored blue lenses. Not sure if they are custom or one of the available colors. At the beginning and end of the show, he is wearing lavender. I guess he changes during Invisible and then again later in the show.

I got mine today too fellas, lavender and blue. The packaging is beautiful but I was really disappointed in the lenses. I was hoping they would be as transparent as the ones Bono wears. In all the photos I've seen of Bono wearing these (even in daylight or regular light indoors) they are as transparent as pairs he's worn in the past. In other words you can see his eyes clearly. When you look at these they are mirrored, even in brighter lights. Plus the custom colors Revo offered look much darker than what Bono wears. I'm sending mine back. Hopefully they will make them lighter and clearer in the future. Vision over Visibility indeed

Just got mine today too. Like DD said, the packaging is great and top notch. The case is hard and will protect your frames well.

Now the details: The frame is large like Charleswise said so if you have a big sized melon, these will fit fine. If you have a smaller head, then these will look HUGE on your mug. The Lavender lenses, however, are a different story. They are not as transparent as Bono's but I do like them and plan on keeping them.

I used my 10% off Welcome coupon at the time of purchase so I saved a few bucks. I am glad I didn't buy them in different colors though.

Doesn't Bono wear the green ones onstage? I'm sure I've seen pics of him wearing the green ones

Ive been going thru pictures from the 12 i+e shows i attended this yr, and i only see evidence of him wearing the purple (lavander) and pink on-stage. Are we sure he's actually wore the blue onstage? The odd pic here or there that appears to be blue coukd be lighting hitting the purple.....

Also, what about the aviators (blue and pink) thats he's been wearing off-stage arriving at venues. Have those been found to avail online anywhere? (Not sure if they are a Revo model)

Perhaps these are the Zifi model Revo offers?
