Comment: Best sunglasses I've ever owned. Had a pair for over 4 years without a scratch. Will never go back to plastic lenses again.

Comment: High quality at a reasonable price. I have two pair of these, 1 polarized pair and 1 regular pair for driving so that I can read the onboard auto computer and navigation screen.

Comment: Best pair of sunglasses that I've ever had. I saw my brother-in-law wear a pair on our recent visit and I loved the sunglasses. I ordered my pair that night and have not been sorry.

Questions From Buyers
What is Grilamid? Grilamid is a nylon characterized by an extremely high bending strength, low density and a resistance to UV damage. So the frames are shatter-resistant, lightweight and durable.
What is an 8-Base lens? A lens' Base refers to the amount of arc in the lens and therefore the arc in the frame. A 6-Base has a more flat, square shape creating a more scholarly look. A larger base, like a 9-Base, is more wrapped and therefore will appear more suited for active endeavors.
