by fromOK, sensitive to fingerprints & scratche function fine as sunglasses; fit me well (naturally ymmv depending on head shape); without a frame, need to touch the lenses -- so smudges are a constant issue; seems like it scratched way too easily -- as I was being very careful yet got a scratch; my first foray into more expensive sunglasses and, at least this one, not worth the premium over more moderately priced ones

by fromOkay and a bit expensive I had a pair of Nano3 sunglasses for many years. They were the best pair of sunglasses I'll ever own. The combination of interchangeable lenses provided the perfect tinting for any lighting condition. I did everything with them and had only a few minor abrasions on the lenses after all the abuse I put them through. Finally the frames started to bubble a little and I decided to take advantage of the lifetime warranty offered on all Native Eyewear. The Nano3 is no longer made so I received the Nano as a replacement. The new frame is a better quality than the old but the lenses are soft. I've only dropped them once and managed to put a deep gouge into the left lens. The tinting on the polarized lens is too dark for me. They work great in very bright conditions but can hinder my vision under normal conditions. The SportFlex lenses do work really well in low light conditions. The old Nano3 also had a clear lens and the replacement frames came with an extra set of clear lenses which are not included with the Nano. A big thank you to Native Eyewear for including them. I have been very satisfied with Native Eyewear and their customer service. I would definitely recommend their products. I just haven't been very happy with this product.

by fromKeep your proof of purchase!!! Dan - Julie V's husband's review I bought my original pair of Nano's on Sale at an REI for something around $80 back in 2007. In 2009, by some way that I still am not sure, I broke the frame. I did NOT have my REI proof of purchase. However, I got the "one time exception that they talk about on their website and they shipped me a brand new pair of Nano 2's since they didn't have the original ones anymore. I then saved that proof of purchase. Fast forward another 4 years. I am a regular commuter, which is where I wear these glasses. I love the 3 interchangeable lenses. I can wear the clear ones in the mornings when I go early in the morning dark, and then have the sunglasses for the ride home. I am not easy on these things, but I take care of them as best as I can. I have even used them for running when I need some eye protection and sunglasses are too dark - like this past years Marine Corps Marathon that I ran in the pre-Hurricane Sandy wind in DC. About 2 weeks ago, I pulled them out of my bag as I was walking to my bike and for some reason, the temple decided to give out. I filled out the forms on line again, paid the fee and sent in the glasses to them. In way under the advertised time, I got a brand new pair of Nano 2s back. Complete with a new case and lens. Great, versatile product and a great company!!!

by fromGreat shades, even greater cust serv I originally bought my Nano's over 10 years ago. I have since then, sent them in twice for the same issue. The soft nose guards unglue from the frame. Only begins about 4-5 years of daily use. If you typically break or loose shades in this time frame, you'll love these glasses. If you are like me and take care of your stuff, you'll love the customer service. You send in your shades to Native and for a $30 fee, you'll get a new pair of glasses. If your model is no longer available, they send you the latest model. I started with Nano's and have been upgraded to Nano 2's and I swear by this company/sunglasses. Also get plenty of compliments on them. Got them because of their stylish looks and width due to my big head. Oh well - at least the glasses help minimize the size of the ole melon. And you'll feel fashionable to boot.Cheers

by fromGreat Sunglasses I rarely write reviews but I love my Natives. I'm always looking for user reviews when I buy new gear and am disappointed or hesitant to buy without reviews. I have owned four pair of Natives. Two Nanos and two other models. I bought my first pair of Nano sunglasses about 10 years ago. I bought a second pair because I liked them so much (and they were on sale). I really liked the lens and figured I could interchange lenses or frames should one break. I've rarely used the second pair waiting on the first pair to wear out. I use them primarily for road and mountain biking. My only complaint, as noted by other reviewers, is that eventually the nose pads tear where they connect to the glasses. I have glued several pads back to glasses. While trying to repair one pair I got glue on the lens and sent them back. Native made good on their warranty and sent me a new model. (The model I owned had been discontinued) The new pair sent to me I use mostly for driving or hangin' out. I have had them approximately one year. They are not Nanos and are a little more stylin', in my opinion. More importantly they have a new nosepad design which seems less likely to have the issue of the previous design. Time will tell. Despite the nose pad issue I give them five stars. I believe Native has worked out that issue with their new design. I have rarely been as satisfied with a product.
