Rated 4 out of 5 by CoffeeChugger A compromise purchase
You can buy glasses at the pharmacy for $15-$20 which I do because they do the job OK, but I might lose them. You can also buy glasses $100+ at specialty retailers and then you cry when you lose them so I rarely go that route.
These glasses work better and fit better than the cheap ones but are less expensive than the top end.
I'd recommend them as the compromise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DPETE Bring back more colors!
I bought these a couple of years ago for a canoe camping trip and cycling and they quickly became a favorite. I now wear them for everyday as well as running, biking, and all outdoor sports. The lens quality is great - I am pretty hard on them and I only have one small nick in almost 3 years. Also - thank you for making them in smaller sizes! I was able to get them in this great purple color a couple of years ago and would buy more if they came in different colors.

by AbnSF Perfect winter glasses.
Well made and polarized, which was key for me. I'm afield all the time and winter snow is wicked on the eyes. These glasses came in several sizes and although I was unsure of which size to get, I guessed correctly. Thus - they stick like glue without retaining straps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelle123 Polarized Multisport Sunglasses
I recently broke these sunglasses that I had for 3 years because of carelessness. I just had to purchase another pair. These sunglasses do not fog up in extremely cold weather. Great for snowshoeing, biking, running or any outdoor activity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tenacioushunter Best sunglasses ever!
By far, the most comfortable to wear, easiest on the eyes in bright sun and the most securely fitted (due to the ear pieces) of any sunglasses I've ever had. Now, if I could just not lose them, again, it would be an almost perfect world!

Rated 2 out of 5 by TexasBeanFrequentFlyer Disappointing Glasses
I rarely find a Bean product lacking but these sun glasses are. I sent them back. I needed a back-up pair for fishing to replace a pair of the same style from LL Bean about 6 years ago. The new pair reflected my eye back at me. The lens clarity was great looking out but the reflection renders them not usable for my wading purposes. I need to see through the water without the reflection back inside the lens. They may work well for other purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by steve16 Good for Running
I think these are great for the money. I use them for running and they sit well and are sturdy.

As is customary, LL Bean you have done it again. We just returned from WDW, very sunny and hot. The glasses performed admirably!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TooMuchFleece Very useful!
I bought these to use during a trip to Kauai and they were perfect! I wore them everywhere, including the ocean, and they stayed put. Did a great job blocking the sun. They are very sturdy, and like everything else LLBean, will probably last forever! You get a lot for your money with these glasses!
