I've been wearing these since summer of 2015 and they have been an incredible investment so far. Since I'm a lifeguard, this pair of sunglasses has seen more than its fair share of sunscreen on that rubber nose piece part. I was just sure to clean them after every shift and I haven't seen the rubber nose piece release little particles or anything like that. They're working just fine. They also do their job when I'm at the range practicing the skills I've learned from my handgun tac1 course. I've been on four ride-alongs with three different police departments and they also give me great comfort from the vehicle, to the outdoor environment, etc. I would highly recommend buying a pair of these.
I love these light weight glasses. They wrap perfectly and are very comfortable. The only issue I have is that the nose piece is disintegrating. It might be from sunscreen or sweat, but it's disappointing. My wife's are doing the same, just not as bad. I ask 511 about it and they stated that it wasn't part of the "life time warranty". Regardless, I'll get another pair since they are the best sunglasses I've worn.
Great glasses all around. Wish that you could get them in a like a flat black instead of shiny black. But still love them.
On my rought to work I was riding my motor bike when a rock stuck me in the right eye. The rock was moving fast enough that I didnt even see it coming until it hit me. Thanks to my 5.11 shades I still have my eye. But now I need to know how to get replacment lenses due to the fact I can no longer see out of the right eye. Thank you 5.11 for putting reliable gear out there that acutally puts up with the life style that I live.
The sunglasses are really light. The rubber material in the nose piece keeps the glasses securely in place. The hard sided case keeps the glasses safe.
Very rugged - have withstood multiple "everyday" impacts to both the frames and lenses without damage. However, the nosepiece deteriorated within a couple months of wear. Even still, after removing the remaining rubber myself, these are my daily duty eye pro in both the street and tactical EMS setting. The Burners fit just as well without the rubber nosepiece.
I wear these everyday and they are durable. I had polarized lenses before and the lenses in these are just as good. Its great having the 3 different kinds of lenses which are very simple to change. The carry case is awesome and fits on my COVRT 18 backpack even though most time I keep them in the sunglasses pouch
These offer great protection.
