I have a small face, so the right sunglasses are hard to find. I want something that looks good on, but can wear well, as I am constantly dropping them, sitting on them, and playing outdoors in them. So far, these have lived up to expectations. The nose pieces are comfortable and flexible, the lenses provide good shade without distorting colors much. There is not much padding on the end of each temple tip. But these are thin, so it is not a big issue.

One of the lenses was loose and I have to figure out how to glue it in place, I don't want to bother sending them back. The size is perfect for smaller faces like mine, so I didn't want to take a chance in not getting a pair if I sent them back.

Very bold styling and large size may overwhelm some faces. Perform very well in lower light/hazy/cloudy conditions. Very adequate bright sun protection, too. Nose pads keep glasses from sliding. Do not feel at all heavy although they are large.

Without a doubt the best clarity I have ever experienced in a pair of sunglasses. Keeps color true as well. The nosepiece has a unique design, which took some getting used to, but is reasonably comfortable. The vent holes in the top of the frame seem to help prevent fogging up as well. I biked through rain for a couple of miles without getting any fogging. The styling is a little on the metro side by my standards, but overall a good pair of glasses. Would have rated at 5 stars except for the nosepiece, which probably would be more comfortable for someone with a smaller nose.

I'm used to Bolle polarized glasses but decided to try these since they looked great on the website. I love them!! I have trouble finding sunglasses that are stylish but aren't too big for my face - these are perfect! I also love the air vents at the top (they won't show) so the lenses never fog up when changing temperatures.

The lenses on these natives are great. Clear as can be and great polarization. The con is that too much light can come in through the top of the glasses due to the design of the slightly "angled" frames.

wanted to like these. definitely bold styling. biggest problem for me was the fit at the nose. i guess i have a wide nose bridge and these have a soft rubber nosepiece that did not stretch out over 2 weeks of wearing and was still painful on the nose. so if you have a normal-narrow nose, maybe these will work better for you.
