I really like these glasses for a lot of reasons, they're nice and dark, comfortable and all that. However, the strength of the lenses is what prompted this review. I was shooting a scoped rifle for the first time, and held the scope much too close to my eye, basically touching. The recoil drove the scope straight into the lens, I ended up needing stitches for a big cut above my eyebrow, but if the lens had shattered I would have been fishing glass out of my eye instead of getting stitches. So in addition to being nice glasses, they really do protect your eyes.

I'll admit the frames are obviously not the highest grade of materials. For luxury frames, you'll need to spend a few more dollars. But, these frames are very lightweight and quite comfortable. What impresses me most is the quality of the polarized lenses. These are the real thing! The clarity is remarkable and I now realize that "polarized" lenses in drugstore sunglasses are inferior. After only a few seconds in bright sunlight, I honestly cannot tell I'm even wearing them. They deliver a literally flawless field of view and provide crisp image definition. I can only hope they remain unscratched, because I really feel like I scored with this purchase!

This set of shades is excellent, and for a cheap price! Upon recieving them, the weather turned bad with rain and all but the lenses work great. Driving with them off it was difficult to see other cars on the road, but with them on the outlines of vehicles were easily viewed. Polarization of lenses are great also.

Durable and cheap... Good buy. The amber is just dark enough for bright days and light enough for low light days such as overcast days.

I shoot many television series both fishing and hunting for the Outdoor Channel and finding equipment that can handle the beatings I give them is a difficult thing to do. This is not my first pair of Flying Fishermans as I Purchased a really nice pair from BassPro for about $80 last year. Since I tend to lose items in the ocean or get smacked in the face by Thresher sharks I figured cheaper would be better. Who would have thought that the cheaper model would stand up to it. Lightweight, great polarization, minimal light creep and they fit on my melon. The lenses may pop out but they go back in and I have yet to scratch them even after many times hitting the deck. Would highly recommend as Flying Fisherman has never done me wrong.

Only used the glasses for one week while on a trip. Glasses purchased for this purpose. Seems durable and flexible curved frame fits on top of my head when indoors. Lightweight and comfortable. Works well outdoors with bright sun. No glares.

Well, it was just a little annoying that practically every time I cleaned the lenses the lenses came off. They are pretty easy to put back in place. After only using these glasses for a few weeks my son had them around his neck in front hanging from a sunglasses strap. As the boat approached the dock he threw a rope over the dock cleat and knocked both lenses off into the water at the same time. Both lenses were lost.

Other than that the glasses were pretty good for the price. However I will not be buying any others of this make.

I have owned several expensive sunglasses........only to lose or otherwise break them. I opted for these because of the quality look and affordability. They are very stylish and have a great fit. Moreso, they provided the "bang for the buck" I was looking for. The only issue, and by no means should this be viewed negatively is usually these types of glasses come with a pair of replaceable lenses (which can be snapped into place). Also, there was no cover or pouch for the glasses. The bottom-line is if you are looking for a good pair of glasses which provide excellent sun protection......without spending a fortune you will like these.

Overall these glasses worked as I expected. I am very happy. So, I did not feel that I should ding a star just because they 'felt' cheap to me. The proof is in the pudding, as they say, and these glasses fit the bill perfectly.

Here are my thoughts.

My initial feeling was that they were cheap. No case. They came in a small clear sandwich bag. The rest of the box was filled with airbags. I wasn't looking for a case, but for 20 bucks.......... I would expect some kind of case.... or,, put them in a gift box or something. Even a cardboard box would have helped.... in addition to the Amazon shipping box.

To be clear - the description did NOT mention a case, and I really wasn't expecting one. It's just that when I saw them in the clear sandwich bag... it kinda turned me off.

The picture of the product on Amazon has the "Flying Fisherman" logo silk screened on the glasses. The product I received has the logo on a striip that is glued on the side. It kind of makes you think that the glasses are not 'personal'. Again, the feeling of cheap comes up again in my mind.

Now, I received these exceptionally fast........... maybe the lack of a case? lol

It's a cloudy day so cannot check out right now.... so I thought.... see comments later in the review.

Funny, was checking out the glasses in the bathroom… the blue walls actually looked blue with the glasses on… usually there is too much glare and the walls never look right.

There is no distortion in the lens. Nice. I have a large head. They feel fine on the face. I saw some reviews mentioning that the nose guard gets in the way of the view.... not for me.

Dimensions:
5 ½ inch wide – to the side of the frame - 1 ¾ in high
5 inch wide to the outside edge of the lenses – looking from the front
Depth 5 to 5 1/2 inches from the nose to the center of the ear rest. The frames go back about 6+ inches, but that last ½ inch or so is needed to hold behind your ear. At least that is the way I am thinking about it. Normally you want the glasses to land on your ear, and then curl down a bit so they don’t fall off.
Front to back 6 ¾ to the end of the frame from the front of the lenses

They stay on your head….. tension is fine. And, the little dip after the ear rest also works nicely.

Cloudy day – looked outside at my car… There is glare on the top of the car from my upstairs window. The glare was completely eliminated. The glare on the side of the car did not change noticeably
.
They look ok…. I felt the lenses were were a little too large. That is a personal preference only. As I looked in the mirror, I kinda felt that I had on those glasses that they give you after cataract surgery. But, my purchase was for the polarizing feature...........not on looks. Use the measurements that I gave you earlier to compare to your face/fit.

Real world daytime test:

I got these to stop the glare on my windshield from the large dashboard. Yes, they work great. I no longer see
the dashboard reflection. Polarize function works fine. I am a happy camper!!!!!

I even use these on cloudy days now.

I got the smoke color lens…. They are not real dark, but, they are not light either. You would not want to use these at night or dusk. For me they were just right.

As soon as I opened the package and took the sunglasses out, any slight adjustment to the glasses you can feel the whole lense section wobble. Not sure how people claim to use these glasses outside.

Not sure if I received a defective product, but man I waited 2 weeks for this?

Here is a youtube video I created to show the issue.
