Great clarity

 Rated 3.0 stars

I love how these glasses work but the only downside is the the arms are not bent in or curved down AT ALL causing them to fall off my face quite easily. Because of this I'll probably try to sell them and get a different pair.

Don't buy

rubber strips came unglued after 4 months of Texas heat. Not worth the money, not durable

High quality

From Civilian in Ontario

from Ontario, Canada

I was considering either these, or another similar design from a popular, well-known sunglasses manufacturer.

I went with these and have absolutely zero regrets. They are amazing. Lightweight, they stick to you almost. They don't shift at all. And the lenses are 100% clear. Not a blemish or any hint of a distorted image.

The only con I can see is that the legs don't "wrap", as in they stick straight out past the curvature of your head. Which throws you off when you first put them on. You keep expecting them to fall off, but they don't budge. However they're also not tight. Long-term wear is easily done. There's no pressure-spot pain from hours of wear.

I like this brand, in that they're high quality, but they're not trendy or just "fashionable". There's a utility to them.

Comes with a hard shell plus the dust bag, not everyone provides that, that's a nice touch from the company. I keep it in the dust bag, in the shell.

Very rugged. The write-up bills them as "virtually indestructible", however I'll take their word for it. I don't really want to try and bend them to their breaking point.

Peripheral vision is good. Not 100%, but better than another similar frame I've used in the past from a very popular manufacturer. I can drive through Detroit and Toronto in rush hour and do just fine merging freeways and navigating.

I expect these will be my friend for years.

I think these are the most comfortable shades I have ever owned. They do right by me at work on an eight hour tour.

From DecSgt

from Kansas

I have worn these almost every day for over a year. The only complaint I have is that they are a little heavy if you are wearing them for long periods of time. I like the protection, they are VERY durable and look almost brand new after a rough year of range trainings and daily wear.

Good product, but not perfect

 Rated 4.0 stars

From C-Los

from El Paso, TX

These sunglasses are great and do the job well. I've been using them for about 6mths now and I have put them through a lot-training, range, patrol, etc. The only thing I didn't like is that the rubber grips on the nose piece and sides began to wear down quickly due to sweating. I have had to super glue them a couple times to keep them in place, other than that small issue, these sunglasses are great and very reasonably priced.

CLIMB Series 511 Tactical Glasses

 Rated 4.0 stars

From J.Smith

from Athens, AL

I wear the CLIMB series sunglasses everyday at work. I think they are overall the best feeling inexpensive sunglasses I have ever wore.The polorized lenses provide an exceptionally clear view in intense sunlight. My only issue I have with them is they tend to scratch really easy.

Nicely, formfitted glasses for work.

I received these glasses as a gift and absolutely love them. I normally wear the O brand, but these were very comparable to that brand.
