from NH

Bought for my husband and he absolutely loves them. Says they fit great are light weight, he actually forgets hes wearing them.

Shear Garbage.


From The dude.

from Orlando,FL

I bought this product mainly for sun protection. I wanted polarized which these are not and if they were i would rate them extremely weak.
They scratch really easy, the rubbery grip areas were falling apart within a month requiring extensive super glue surgery,mind you im very OCD so they were cared for. Waste of money for sure.

*Things that are great?.. They look really cool!
*Things that aren't so great?.. Enough said.

Good glasses, but falling apart


From Chris

from Roanoke, VA

Bought these glasses for use at work and, within 6-8 months the rubber on both ear pieces has begin to come off and the rubber on the nose piece FELL OFF. I take good care of the glasses and they don't get abused

Very good glasses, but not amazing


From USN

from ATL GA

These glasses have great UV protection and comfort. For the most part they are great glasses. My only problem is the 5.11 emblem fell off and the rubber on the ear piece is coming off after less than 8 months of normal wear. They also scratch very easily. I would be totally ok with this if I hadn't spent [$] on them.

Just what my eyes needed!


From Bushman

from Enumclaw,Wa.

so light weight I can wear all day and forget that I even have glasses on . I would and probly will buy more .

Very nice glasses


From AZ TBird

from Mesa, AZ

I would have rated 5 stars, but the rubber nose pieces keep falling off. Be sure you have some Krazy Glue on hand for repairs! Other than that, I love them!

These are in the same league as Oakley!
