This review is from: Under Armour Hammer Polarized Wrap Sunglasses (Eyewear)
Update: July 30, 2014. I have now used these sunglasses for several day-long outings. They are comfortable and apparently very durable, although I have not given them a torture test like allowing the grandkids to step on them. The frames are quite robust compared to many on the market, and yet they are lightweight. I now have two pairs of Under Armour sunglasses and am pleased with both. My adult daughters have tried them, and like them except that they find the size too large for their faces. If you search Amazon for "Under Armour sunglasses women", several models come up that presumably are smaller and/or lighter.

I ordered these sunglasses based on my excellent previous experience with Under Armour sunglasses. Judging by the illustrations and the descriptions, this model should be very similar and equally satisfactory. The primary differences are that these are polarized, and do not have the "funky blue reflection" on the outside of the lenses. See my original review, below.

I was hesitant to buy sunglasses online, because there are too many personal preferences and design parameters that need to be examined and evaluated. But knowing Amazon's return policy, I took a chance and I'm glad I did. These Under Armour sunglasses have proven to be excellent. The bows are flat, and relatively broad, so they fit snugly enough to keep the glasses from sliding off, but without pressing uncomfortably on my temples. They are lightweight and ride comfortably on the nose, so they feel fine for a long day in the sun. The lenses are said to be much more durable than most, and so far they have completely resisted scratching. The manufacturer claims total protection against UVA, UVB, and UVC radiation, and my eye comfort after a bright day seems to validate this claim. The lenses are also distortion free virtually from edge-to-edge. The big surprise for me, in comparison to many other sunglasses I have owned, is the true colors viewed through the glasses. The sky is blue, the sunsets are red and orange and gold, the grass is green. Some sunglasses I have make the sky a dull brownish grey, and I have to lift them to see what the weather is. These glasses have a funky blue reflection on the outside of the lenses which is supposed to have various practical purposes, but in any event it has no adverse effect on the viewing quality. In all ways, these were a satisfactory purchase.
