Came up short

 Rated 3.0 stars

From DanDezNJ


As with other purchasers... One rubber eye pad broke off (epoxy required for repair). Lenses scratch easily, I own the non-polarized version. Neck strap lasted a week, the rubber connection part split.

The only "Pro"... They fit my noggin perfectly!

Soon after I started wearing them for daily use
the rubber ear peace started coming off.
I have alot of other thimgs from 5.11 and all top quality

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

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.

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!

Just what my eyes needed!

Very good glasses, but not amazing

 Rated 4.0 stars

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.
