    These shades are cool. They have great coverage for small lenses and they don't swallow your face like most sun glasses these days.
    They fit great, look great and work great. Lots of compliments.

    Never got into the retro aviator fad- these classic small frames with polar blue lenses look cool and tone down the glare. I like them a bit better than the darker green lenses as they work in bright sun or cloudy days to relieve eye strain. A good buy too if your lucky enough to have a coupon

    I'd been eyeing these for some time---pun intended----and when they finally got a deeper discount, I splurged. I don't REALLY need new sunglasses but I'll enjoy wearing these. I have a small face and they fit well---with a kind of retro look. They might not be enough coverage for the most brilliant sun---it won't be summer here for quite awhile! But I'm looking forward to wearing them come summer. They seem well made and I expect to have them for many years.

    Excellent shades, the polarization is really helpful. I bought these for travel in both the first and third worlds. The West African Sun was tamed well enough. And the tint is enough to take the bite out of snow. But--and this is key for me--they aren't too dark. I think Bolle found the perfect balance.

    As others have noted, the lenses are smallish. Yes, they will let some light in from the sides and top--buy goggles if that's a problem for you. I am a male with a slightly narrower face, and prefer smaller lenses, so these are just perfect for me. If you have a really big face, these will look stupid on you. Your mileage may vary.

    I have the blue mirror versions. Note that the view through the lenses is not blue tinted, but neutral, which is really ideal for glasses you actually want to SEE through.

    One item of note: with intensely bright light, there is some blue artifacting through these lenses. For example, oncoming headlights, or sun in the field of view, will yield a slight blue artifact visually near the light source in your field of view. It's not bad at all, but presumably is an optical artifact from the blue mirror coating. In light of this unexpected feature, I would rate the product four stars, except that the price pushes it over the edge for me to five stars.

    These replaced my Ray Ban aviators. Very nice shades and quite comparable to the Ray Bans

    I will use these mostly for driving, walking around outside on sunny days.

    They have really small lens. Not John Lennon small, but not much bigger. I have a couple other pairs of Bolle's and I love them. But I had to return these. Did I mention that they are really small?

    I usually wear "O" but have been looking for sunglasses w/ blue lenses and saw these so took a chance. LOVE them! Seem sturdier than many of my "O's" and didn't cost a fortune. Unisex style/size so don't look huge on me. Very comfortable bows and great blue polorized lens. Mine have hit the floor a couple times and haven't hurt them one bit! I don't find them heavy at all, just super much so I ordered 2 pair!
    Sierra service ROCKS and is 2nd to none!

    These sunglasses are well made and have good clear optics. After wearing them for a while they do start to squeeze a little over my ears, but I have a slightly big head. The good news is that they hold on pretty well without wanting to fall off if I bend over (like some of my other sunglasses). The stems have springs so, while snug, they don't bind too much. The lenses are small of course, so I consider them more "fashion" than pure practical -something I knew when purchasing. Overall I'm quite happy with them.
