Color Name: Gold Frame/Green G-15xlt LensLenscolor: G-15XLTVerified Purchase
Well my Ray-Ban Caravans arrived very quickly but since I was not home i couldn't try them on, so a couple of weeks later I returned and opened the package. I won't lie to you I loved the look of these sunglasses. I've had Ray-Ban before... but this model is just beautiful!!.. anyway it wasn't until I tried them on that I realized that I had ordered the 55mm Caravans and they were too small for my head and if wore for a couple of minutes the sides of my head would hurt so I just couldn't wear them. It was already a month after I made the purchase so I did not returned them, I just gave them away to my cousin. I found out later that there were two sizes (55mm-58mm) but this was not specified in the description... the only difference were the "colors" which are the same. So the ones that say "G-15XLT" are 55mm and the "Green" ones are 58mm. But apparently both are the same color (Green lens, gold frame and transparent temple tip. I'm buying another pair because I really loved how these looked on me so hopefully they'll fit!!!

A great style, especially for those of us who don't go for the original Aviator style. But these sunglasses do need a few notes.

The size on these have 58mm-diameter lenses with 15 mm between the lenses (if my decoding of the code on the side is correct. This is the largest size in this style, and even at that they are just *slightly* too small at the ears for my head. For context, the Ray Ban Wayfarer with a 50mm lens and 22m nosepiece fits perfectly.

Also these, like the original Aviators, are intended to cover pretty much the entire eye socket, so if you're seeing light coming in from the side or top...they are too small for you.

In other words, if you don't have a specific size head, these may not work for you and you'll be frustrated. I know it's hard to buy online since you don't get to try them on. OTOH, it's a little unethical (in my opinion) to go to a brick-and-mortar store just to try them on so you can turn around and buy them off of Amazon. DIYD and all that.

Assuming the fit is acceptable, these are very well made sunglasses. They just *feel* like quality and the lenses are fantastic. There is some concern on Amazon about some Ray Bans being fakes. The pair I received are the real thing - look for the etched R-B on the left lens (not the lens with the white logo on it), the R-B logo on the nosepieces, the lenses being made of glass (not plastic) and the identifier engraved on the underside of the bridge...these are indicators that you have a genuine pair in your hands. I purchased directly from Amazon, not a "fulfilled by Amazon" purchase, so caveat emptor on that score.

All in all, an outstanding pair of glasses at a good price.

I really like these sunglasses. I was worried, that because they come in different sizes, they would look too small on my face (as I am a bigger guy with a larger head) but these are a larger version of the Caravan sunglasses and look great (forgive my vanity). The frame is thin so I must be careful with them, but overall they are the quality sunglasses I expected from Ray Ban.

What can one say about these glasses that hasn't already been said. They're the perfect frames for cruising up a river into Laos, or walking out in the tarmac to get into your F-105, the world altitude record dancing in your mind. Maybe you're planning a trip with your friend, torn jeans and vintage motorcycle hugging your legs.

Whatever your business, these glasses will take you there in style. Their solid, light construction offer reassuring protection from those pesky UVA/UVB rays. I only wish I would have sprung for the polarized lenses.

Color Name: Gold Frame/Green G-15xlt LensLenscolor: G-15XLTVerified Purchase
I ordered both options. The "g-15XLT" and the "Green" lenses.

The G-15XLT came with a brown case and a giant G-15 sticker on the lenses. Obviously brand new. The
Size: The g-15s that arrived say 55/14/140 on them. These are a fine and I like them

The "Green" option came in a black case and are Crystal Green lenses, this means they are glass which is what I actually wanted. They are more scratch resistant.
Size: the Greens arrived and say 58/15/135.

The two sizes are very similar. You can notice the lenses on the 55's are just a touch smaller, but I only really notice when I smile and my cheeks don't touch, but they touch slightly on the 58's. I do not know what the difference is between the 140 and 135, they feel almost identical to me.

TL:DL - The "G-15 XLT" and the "Green" option are NOT the same thing and they will be different if you order both. I'm not sure if the glass lenses only come in 58 or what. I was not given a size option, but am not upset about it either way. The difference between 55 and 58 is negligible and the difference between Acrylic g-15s and glass lenses is more significant for your purchase.

These glasses were excellent quality! All original, arrived in the Ray Ban Box, booklet, cleaning cloth, protective plastic sleeve over one temple to keep things from rubbing together in the box, snap front carrying case, exactly what I expected to receive. The weight, feel, and over all look of the glasses were fantastic. Lenses were super clear, just over all awesomeness! The only problem was my fat face, I probably should have ordered the 58mm frames, but didn't want to take another chance of re-ordering and deciding they just don't look right on ME. They look awesome on others which is why I wanted them. I was going to give them to my girlfriend because I love the look of them so much, but she's not a sunglass hoarder like me, so after a quick try on and look in the mirror I decided to ship them back for someone else to enjoy. If you're thinking of ordering these but are worried about quality or "knock offs", don't be...these are the real deal!

I've been looking for a pair of aviator sunglasses. It seemed that most of them were always too big and overwhelmed my petite face. These are perfect! My new favorite sunglasses!
