Rated5out of5byDJPfromSurprisingly Nice Glasses for the PriceI wanted a pair of polarized sunglasses for use on dive boats, and these seemed perfect at the sale price. I'm pleasantly surprised with what I got, they fit well, the optical quality of the lenses is good, and the case is very useable.
The earpieces lock open, and I do wonder if that feature will be a weak point but so far so good.
Overall, I like them.

Rated5out of5byRecontraBacanfromAwesome--I own two pairsI've owned two pairs of these Native Nano 2's, lost one so had to buy another. The Blue Reflex is great for driving and has good true color retention. It is, however, very dark. Great for driving, bright sun, skiing on a sunny day, etc. The Polarized Amber lenses have awesome contrast and I use them for umpiring baseball on sunny days. They make the contrast "pop" and are great from very sunny to overcast days. Tracking an 80 mph baseball towards my face is easy with the amber lenses. Also, both come with replaceable low light lenses that are simply phenomenal and actually help you see in bright to flat overcast conditions and even once the sun goes down better than no glasses at all. Lights on in the baseball stadium, I keep the low light lenses on. The Ambers are also awesome for enhancing contrast while skiing on cloudy but still bright days. The moguls and texture of the snow "pops." Also, these Nano 2's fit a larger face, are slightly wrap around (no light coming in from the sides), they stay on your face without movement, they stay securely on the top of my baseball cap as I run around the baseball field--have never fallen off even when I've been running, the replaceable lenses are easy and secure, they vent extremely well (no fogging while skiing or umpiring with a face mask on, and lots of sun glasses I've tried fog up with an umpire's mask on a hot day. The only downside to the Polarized Amber lenses is that they don't maintain true colors as well as the darker Blue Reflex lenses. The only downside to the Blue Reflex lenses is that for many applications, they are simply too dark (and don't enhance contrast). If I could only have one pair, it would be the Ambers. Best umpire and ski glasses I've worn. Both these absolutely Rock.

Rated5out of5byVBfromGreat size for big facesI'm Asian and have a round face...with a rather large head, so its difficult to find sunglasses that are wide enough. These Nano2's fit the bill perfectly. I love the interchangeable lenses, as I've had to use the other lenses in low contrast situations (overcast day in the snow). The only problem I have with these is that they tend to fall out of my shirt collar when I bend over and somehow always lands on the front of the lenses right in my sight line. I obviously be more careful, but sunglasses should be expected to be dropped at least a few times in their life. They are very comfortable and can be worn all day...which I do here in sunny California.
