These sunglasses fit the bill for a polarized, non-aviator model to fit my semi-freakishly large head. Optically, they're pretty close to great, and comfort-wise, they're very good. The deal breaker in my experience was that I found them to be very susceptible to scratching, and that's with much conscious effort to take care of them.

Favorite sunglasses! This is actually the second pair of these exact sunglasses for me, I lost my first pair to the ocean this summer. I tried shopping for something new or going back to using my Ray Bans full time but nothing compares to the fit, feel, and lenses of Natives!

I bought a pair on June 2nd and they looked good, felt right, the lenses were clear and polarization was nice. They were what you would expect from a pair of glasses at this price. However, less than a week later the right lens started to show tiny cracks from both sides. I am very disappointed in these shades! Now I have to send them back and buy something else. Do not buy these!

These sunglasses are really comfortable and loaded with style. The construction seems solid and the lenses keep everything in view crystal clear. The sunglasses have venting on top and bottom around the eyes. This really does help prevent them from fogging up, although they still do get slightly foggy from time to time. These glasses would make a great choice for active people... They don't feel like they are going to fall off during activities, and they don't feel like they are squeezing my head either.

I tried several pairs of quality sunglasses with Zappos they never wavered in fast efficient help in returns till I got the exact sunglasses for me. Their customer service is beyond anything I have encountered online shopping. 10+.

This is the second time purchasing these sunglasses for my husband, he loved them that much. They look great on without being overly stylized.

LOVE these sunglasses! I too had the Ray Ban Sidestreets (RB 4068) sunglasses as the other reviewer and I disliked them greatly. I hardly wore them because of how heavy they are and the nose piece is very uncomfortable. I was very disappoint with my Ray Ban purchase and felt for the cost of them they should have actually been comfortable. I have a sport version of Native sunglasses so I was pretty confident I would like these too. They did not disappoint. They are Light weight with a comfortable nose piece that has the perfect amount of padding. They also stay put when wearing them on your head, unlike the Ray Bans where I always felt they were going to fall off. If you want a comfortable, larger fashion style sunglasses these are amazing. Native is a great brand and they know how to make sunglasses that are comfortable and fashionable. Love, Love LOVE!!! I want to note that the video shows these glasses on a male. I am female and love the look of these larger sunglasses.

Great polarized sunglasses for the price! I have used them several times skiing and biking. I was skeptical of the venting as fogging has always been an issue for me but found that the vents really do work well. These are super light and the rubber on the nose helps keep them from sliding down my face. No durability issues so far!

I don't know what the last reviewer was doing to break the temple when removing them from the bag but mine have help up well. I've had a pair of these for years and recently purchased a new color. I've ran and mt biked in them and throw them in my pack and have never had any issues. They never fog and actually fit under a bike helmet pretty well. The lenses remain in pretty good shape to considering how bad I treat them.

Really disappointed in these Native sunglasses. The sidearm snapped in half when I was taking them out of the protective soft bag that the glasses come in. I bought them because they were supposed to be "tough." They broke on the 3rd day that I had them. When I contacted Native, I was told that I had to pay $30 to get them fixed. What a joke of a warranty. I definitely should have gone with a more quality company.

There comfort and style are actually great. I just want to give them a god awful rating because they break if you even touch them wrong. I hope people read this review because I wasted the money buying them and the money sending them back to replace them 3 different times. Durability is dirt poor. Please don't buy these cheap things. Native's are a rip off and a terrible company.

This company makes the BEST glasses out there. They are expensive, but anything quality is going to cost you a little bit. They come with a protective hard case and a soft pouch that can also be used to wipe them clean. They fit my face better than any glasses I have seen on the market, including the other expensive brands like Oakley and Ray Band. These look good, protect your eyes and are sturdy without being bulky or heavy. I had my prized pair for almost four years. About three years in, the earpiece fell off after lots of use (but also careful protection). They replaced my $160 sunglasses within a week for a nominal fee ($30). I enjoyed my favorite glasses for another year before they were broken when someone hit me with a basketball. Again, for 30 bucks they were replaced, this time with a new model (DASH) because mine was discontinued. I love the product, the service and the dedication this company puts forward and I will never buy another brand of sunglasses. Ever. It is rare to find a group that actually cares about its customers as much as Native does.

Very pleased with the design. Sharp looking and lightweight. I would classify them on little on the large size, though, so probably best for people with big faces/heads.

Optical quality is very good. these are also pretty light, and have worked well for me while mountain biking. swapping the lenses is a pain, and you feel like you're about to break them when swapping lenses.

The clear plastic lets in enormous amounts of light negating usefulness as sunglasses. The chrome nose piece reflects light (let through by the clear plastic) into your eye. Work okay with baseball hat or in a car with a roof but useless in the sun without a hat.

Great glasses! They're light but fit securely on my face. I have a big head and they look great! Optics are outstanding. Not quite Maui Jim optics but very clear. Highly recommend them for every day driving or boating.

I disagree with the other reviewer. I've had Oakleys, Smiths (I thought they felt cheap!), and my go-to favorites, Ray-Ban Sidestreets (RB 4068). When my Ray-Bans finally bit the dust (literally), I started the search for another pair of sunglasses. I was looking for another polarized glass with a similar frame shape, but lighter and with nose grips (a gripe of mine with the Ray-Bans: heavy & no nose grips). These Native Chongas are sweet! They are lightweight, hug my face superbly well (less light getting in above the frame and the sides than the Ray Bans) and they grip like crazy. I got the wood/silver reflective color combo, and I love them. They look super sharp, and they are way more cost effective than Ray Bans & Oakleys.

I love these glasses. They are super lightweight and lenses are a pleasure to look through. I was looking for glasses with a clear frame and polarized lenses that weren't too sporty or too fashiony. These fit the bill perfectly.

Ironically, I knew I liked these sunglasses when I realized I forgot I had them on. They are so lightweight that I initially was concerned for their ability to withstand pressure, but so far they've performed well. I wear them mostly biking (daily commuting and beyond) as the white frames are less of a match with my everyday style and they have been worth the full price I paid for them (which was full price...). The interchangeable lenses are very handy - I use the clear lenses at night, particularly in the cold weather, to keep my eyes happier. They do fog, but only when I'm heated up and stop; it quickly dissipates once I move again. The case they come with is huge and I rarely use it; if I could change one thing it would be to have a smaller case that was still protective of the frames. Mostly I end up placing them in an outside pocket of my backpack when not in use, and they have been fine. And, of course - polarized. I won't wear anything but; it makes a huge difference!

I have used these glasses for boot camp, running and exercising as well as skiing and they work perfectly. The side vents help with fogging and the glasses also provide some protection from the wind.

They are sunglasses. I like them. What else is there to say? They have flexible frames, which I assume will not break as easily as the cheap ones.
