    Can you Frogskin gurus please enlighten me as to the differences in the Generation 2 and Gen 3 frogskins sunglasses? I know Generation 1 is metal hinges, is that all? Thanks.

    The lense size is a bit smaller on the Gen 2 and the hinge is a bit different. Also the material feels s bit harder on the Gen 2. The made in USA ce is located in a different spot on the arm. Closer to the orbital. All in all the Gen 2 a bit smaller.

    In the photos notice the difference between the hinge on the Gen 2 on the right vs the Gen 3 on the left. As well as size of the frame. Hope this helps Gen 1,2,3 differences - 1454647505844-746532023.jpg Gen 1,2,3 differences - 14546475541991116898110.jpg Gen 1,2,3 differences - 14546475951321324190537.jpg

    @SoulfulFrog thank you got this great info. Are the lenses interchangeable in all 3 generations?

    No. You will break the Gen 2 orbitals if you try to put Gen 3 lenses in. The Gen 1 are a bit taller than the other 2 and wont fit in either. Gen 3 lenses fit in Gen 1 loosely. Works though without falling out.
