Excellent. A brand not owned by Luxottica Group is a plus.

These Under Armour brand polarized sunglasses are excellent. They have clear, crisp lenses and are a shade that is not too dark and are polarized to boot. The wrap around style keeps annoying bright light from interfering with your vision. They seem more sturdy than the wrap style I bought from Oakley in the past. As far as fit, they will accommodate a relatively wide (fat) man's head. My daughter's boyfriend tried them on and his nickname is "Stewie" (from the tv show Family Guy) and they were too tight for him. I bought them for my hubby (another wide head) and they fit him perfectly. We've tried Oakley (several times), Ray Bans, etc. These are on par with these more expensive brands. HIghly recommended!
So far, Under Armour, Maui Jim (Costco sells these) are brands not yet owned by Luxottica Group, a huge Italian conglomerate that owns the sun and prescription eyewear brands of Oakley, Ray Ban, Armani, Coach, Prada, Tiffany, Versace, & Chanel - to name a few. They also owne Pearle, Lenscrafters, Sears & Target optical, OPSM & Budget eyewear (Australia), Laubman & Pank, & GMO (Latin America). Its main competitors are Costco and Walmart (sigh). Virtually a monopoly, they control prices. This is why you pay such high prices for nonprescription sunglasses and prescription eyewear.
