This was to replace a pair of Ray Ban Outdoorsman Aviators that I have had for 15 years. I thought that they looked the same, and didn't realize that some are smaller than others. In this case, the actual size is not stated anywhere in the description. The glasses are too small for men, and the ear pieces will hurt your ears. If you are a child or a woman with a small head, these are very high quality good sunglasses.

The next time I spend $100+ for a set of sunglasses, it will be over the counter at a sporting goods store, even if it costs a little more. At least I'll know exactly what I am buying.

Having been a RayBan admirer for most of my life as well as an owner as soon as I could afford to buy it on my own (age 17), I was pleased that the typical life of these sunglasses are about 20-25 years minimum. They last a long time if you care for them (i.e. polish and clean, keep the lenses from getting scratched, tighten screws occasionally). Some people just beat the heck out of them but then wonder why they break.

The challenge when finding the replacement (hence the review title) is to make sure you get the right size. Contrary to popular belief, glasses are like shoes - they must fit the person's face. Case in point, I had ordered a 52mm size Aviators for the missus when hers finally fell apart, and no amount of maintenance could put it back together. Since she had owned hers since before flight school, it had more than paid for itself. However, the 52mm was too small even for her petite face. I later found that I needed a 58mm size. Trying to find a 58mm with a support bar (the crosspiece above the nose) and cable temples (instead of regular solid hooks over your ears) was challenging to say the least. Fortunately, Amazon made it easy and I found the right style and frame. It's all black instead of the classic gold frame, but otherwise the missus is pleased (and by definition, so am I). This is a great buy at a good price. Shipping was on time and well padded. The only item of slight concern is that the quality of the leather case appears to have gone down in manufacturing over the years. Nominal use (daily open/close while stored in the car) has resulted in the button snap starting to wear at the point that it is sown into the case flap. We'll just simply replace it with the older case which has nice fatigue patterns but still snaps confidently to this day.

Glasses were as stated but were quite smaller than the original ones I own. I returned them to the seller because they are too small for large face individuals.

I love these glasses. The wire temples hold them securely and being a child of the 80's, they remind me of the how cool it was to grow up during that time.

Had to return the sunglasses...they REALLY hurt my ears. Unfortunately, there was a Re-stocking fee that I didn't know about...sigh.

I have used Ray Ban Outdoorsman Sunglasses w/ cable temples for 20 years. I have never had a problem with them, although I have lost many pairs. The glasses are comfortable to wear and the cable fits nicely around my ears allowing me to engage in outdoor activity without their falling off. This was a good purchase through an Amazon vendor.

If you want the best, look no further. I continually purchase glasses from other manufacturers spending $100-$200 USD/per pair and the glasses usually fall short of my expectations... However, after purchasing these Ray Bans I think i've actually found some glasses that are not only super retro and stylish but are made with the highest quality materials that you can actually see and feel. Thanks Ray Ban! You've got a customer for life...

These are perfect for my man. He loved them. I was happy to report the price was a little cheaper than other sites and the product was perfect.

Bought this as a father's day present for my dad. I took some rough measurements, I was a little concerned the arms might be a little long or the bridge might be a little too wide, but they fit great. Despite the picture shown, these lenses are pretty dark and great for bright sunlight.
