I needed sunglasses with the reader function and these are perfect. No more switching back and forth between my readers and sunglasses when trying to read my gps on the trail. The tinting is not so dark that you cannot see in low light conditions.

I originally decided to buy the Coyote Polarized/Bi-Focal sunglasses for fishing. Unfortunately as I've aged, seeing fishing line while tying knots has become a problem. After having to basically tie off blind and repeatedly impaling my fingers on hooks, I began carrying readers. Almost as annoying but not quite as painful (until the cheaters fall off and disappear into the abyss at which point I was back to blindly poking my fingers).
Being somewhat addicted to quality glasses such as Maui Jim and Ray Ban, I had doubts on how much I'd enjoy these. After two weeks which included one quick fishing trip, the Coyote glasses have exceeded my expectations. The lens clarity is very good. Admittedly not quite Maui Jim level but far better than the "off the rack" quality found in Panama Jack and similar brands. They also have a nice quality feel to the materials and hinges.
The bi-focal feature works well for me and has proven to be helpful with more tasks than just fishing. I wanted the 1.5X magnification but they were out of stock. So I went for the 2.0X magnification figuring I'm only gonna get older. The magnification area is positioned very well. It does not affect distance vision but is right where I need it when I want it. This was also true when I wore them for a drive. Again, great clarity and glare reduction from the polarization with the added benefit of being able to easily see details from the dash.
The only aspect I would like to see improved with these glasses is the weight. The longest I've worn them to date is 3 hours, but I can tell a long day in the sun will have my ears feeling rather irritated. However it's an acceptable price to pay for a day spent fishing. . .

The glasses fit well. The 'bi-focal' is actually a stick-on to the lower edge of the lens. My partner had bought this type of stick-on for his prescription sunglasses as well. It's a great option to reader sunglasses so I don't have to keep switching them out when there's something to read.
It is a measure of impact resistance. Think safety glasses.

That is the reading glass insert magnification.
These have a small reading glass insert at the bottom. It is very difficult to see but is very functional.

Mine is 2.0. And they are fantastic! Look and feel great, and the lenses work very well.

It means the strength of magnification. The higher the number, the stronger and larger the print on a page or the fishing fly you're tying to leader line appears. These glasses are commonly called "cheaters" and for far sighted people.

The numbers, 1.5, 2.0, etc is the strength of the bi-focal portion of the lenz. You have to pick the strength of your bi-focal.

These numbers refer to the bi-focal magnification you can choose. Not model numbers. Hope that helps :)
