    I'm going to (respectfully!) differ with the previous reviewer, who felt these glasses "a bit heavy for extended wear": Yes, Serengeti's frameless and (plastic) Polar Phd offerings are lighter still, but as a metal&acetate-framed, glass-lens sunglass, the Trapani is amazingly lightweight (e.g., much lighter than the Serengeti Napoli I purchased through STP a few years ago). Moreover, the inherent adjustability of a quality metal frame can make this sunglass VERY comfortable. Out of the box my Trapanis felt ok; some preliminary tweaking of the nose pads (in the wrong direction) made them feel suddenly "heavy" and uncomfortable (note: perhaps the previous reviewer's nose pads were misadjusted?). Some further tweaking of the pads and ear pieces (in the correct directions) magically "removed" the weight, and these are now the most comfortable sunglasses I own (even more comfortable than the lighter-weight, plastic-lens Serengeti Polar PhD "Maestrale" I wear for cycling). . . .

    What I particularly like about the Trapani is the lens coverage: on my medium-width face, there's almost no light leakage from anywhere around the frame (with many frames, quite a bit of light passes between the glasses and the sides of my nose); the 8-Base lens curvature wraps well around the sides, and the lens is tall enough to shield light from above and below without having the frame touch my cheeks when I smile. Getting this sort of coverage in a tasteful non-sport sunglass (e.g., one I can wear to an outdoor business luncheon) is not always easy. . . .

    I purchased the 555 (grey-green) lens. Compared with the Serengeti Drivers lenses I have on my other glasses, the 555 lenses yield a view that's not quite so "pretty": the copper-coloured Drivers somehow enhance colours while increasing contrast and cutting through mist and fog, whilst the 555s look darker (regardless of what the light transmission figures may say), and colours on a winter Boston day can be a little muted. But on the flip side, the 555 offers a sort of "Ahhh..." comfort when there's just lots and lots of blinding glare (e.g., driving into the late July sun on the Jersey Turnpike beneath a glaring smoggy yellow-white sky). I first used a friend's 555 last year, and look forward to having my own on long drives this coming summer. . . .

    One last note on glass vs. plastic lenses: the visual acuity is not quite identical, and glass (for my purposes) is slightly better. I gave my father a pair of Serengeti "Palladio" 555 glasses this fall (thanks, STP!), which have plastic lenses, and can directly compare the plastic vs. the glass lenses. That is, I have both glasses (Trapani and Palladio) in hand, both with Serengeti 555 grey-green lenses, but the Trapani's are glass and the Palladio's are plastic -- and here's how they compare: the glass lenses start off a bit darker, but both reach roughly equal darkness when exposed to New England winter sunlight. And I can convince myself that the plastic (Polar PhD) 555 lens yields slightly more vivid colours (though I wouldn't stake my life on that) when viewed in its most lightened state. When used to view an ordinary scene with normal lighting (e.g., a garden-variety sunlit landscape), both are impressive and I can't see any obvious differences in clarity and visual acuity. However, if there's an intense bright spot in the scene (e.g., the sun or a reflection off a car mirror), the plastic lens has a ray-like flare (much like "camera lens flare") angling from the bright spot across the field of view. Many people won't notice or won't be bothered by this flare (my wife can see it if I point it out, but otherwise it's invisible to her), and the Serengeti Polar PhD lens has far less of it than do many other plastic sunglass manufacturers' wares -- but it bothers me and it can make it hard to see things lurking in the shadows. So if absolute visual acuity in high-glare "hotspot" situations is important to you, then glass lenses are the way to go. And if you'd like glass lenses, then Serengeti has some of the best in the business, and this Trapani -- with its lightweight titanium frame and its fully adjustable nose pads -- is an excellent, comfortable, good-looking way to get them.

    Fits small face. Oversized glasses great with nice lens color. Not super fashionable, but excellent quality.

    Love these sunglasses. Great optics, excellent coverage, wonderful fit for medium sized female face. Earned the 5 star rating because of the accompanying hard case too.

    I like that the frame is big enough for a masculine face.

    Purchased them for my wife for her birthday. They are a little smaller and lighter than I thought, but that is actually a good thing. The lenses are much darker than I expected, which is also a good thing. Bottom line, they are better than I imagined them to be.

    great lenses Ii have come to expect from Serengeti. Frame on the larger side, though, and when pushed back on my nose, my lashes hit the lense, and make a smudge after several hours.

    These sunglasses have good lenses, but the frames are large and cumbersome on my small-medium sized face. They do not curve at all to fit the face and stick out too far on the sides.

    Have always loved Serengeti glasses and these are no exception. If I could have given 4.5 stars I would have. Shipping was a little slow but I think it was the post office, not Sierra. Price was great. I will shop here again, for sure.

    These are great sunglasses. Though they don't look it because of their relatively small size these glasses as very sturdy and I expect them to last a long time. Serengeti produces consistently high quality sunglasses and these are no exceptions. Also a great price from STP.

    The Serengeti brand is not what it was years ago... but these shades are very nice! They fit my face good. They are not too flashy but at the same time appear to be somewhat hip. Everything looks extra green in the summertime when I'm wearing these and the polarization works OK if I am trying to see beneath the water. The best part is they give good contrast and block glare while I'm driving. I would say these are a good choice at a reasonable price with no extra flair -
