Rated 4 out of 5 by Venator2 Optimized for fishing
I need 2.5X readers and looking for replacement sunglasses solely for fishing I bought these on sale. Frame fit is solid, not too firm, and very comfortable on my medium size-7 head. The best thing, they don't darken so much in pre-dawn and twilight like the Maui Jim's I've been using, but still shield from UV and glare in bright sun. Mostly for that reason they are great for fishing. Maui Jim's will be relegated to other daytime use for which they are intended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by latido Bifocal sunglasses
Haven't worn them much since purchase - given the lousy winter weather! They seem a little tight at the ear but may loosen with time. My previous pair, which unfortunately got lost, was extremely comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bayoubro These glasses will change your fishing life
I have 20/20 longrange vision but need magnifiers for reading (and tying on lures.) I bought these with the 2.0 bifocal magnifiers. They are placed low enough on the lenses that they don't otherwise interfere with driving the boat, casting, etc., but work like a charm for reading the GPS and changing baits. I'd given up using 4 lb test on my ultralight freshwater rigs but with these glasses I can manage to tie 4 lb just fine. They are polarized, too, so that improves the ability to spot fish. Well made and worth the $89 I paid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by onlineshopperatllbean Clear view unless looking into sunset on road
Overall I like these glasses. The top portion gives a clear view of things outdoors, unless driving into a sunset. To put the bottom portion low enough for me to use while driving, I have to scoot them down a bit on my nose. I found no other glasses like these elsewhere, so was glad that LLB offers them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bassfish51 Bifocal fishing glasses
These glasses are very similar to a pair that I purchased from LL Bean several years ago. Sadly, they are now at the bottom of one of my favorite lakes. I find that these glasses should serve me very well also. The copper polarized lenses allow me to sight fish very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MNFlyGal Perfect bifocals!
I love these sunglasses! They are perfect for fly fishing and now I no longer have to switch back and forth between my sunglasses and readers. They are also handy when driving to see anything you need to see in the vehicle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimbo54362 Great clarity and sun protection!
These sunglasses exceeded expectation. They have great clarity while easing eye strain in the sun. I wish they came in +1.25 as the +1.50 is a little too strong for my eyes.

So far so good . Nice tint and good polarization . Blocks glare well .Took only a short time to adjust to the bifocals while fishing and didn't fall in once while wading . Sturdy ,comfortable ,and good looking frame with a fair price . They work for me .

Rated 5 out of 5 by streamsurfer Light weight, clear wide viewing, strong
These sunglasses were a welcome surprise. I usually shop for rimless sunglasses at other non-fishing related sites so I was surprised to see these in the LL Bean fishing catalog. The wrap around lens allows excellent lateral viewing that is not restricted by the strong thick temple arm. The 1.5x bifocal comes in handy and I am partial to amber/copper or smoke tinted lenses. The comfortable bridge contacts bring the glasses close to the face so you may have to modify the resting position outward slightly if you have a short nose, long eye lashes, or thicker cheeks to avoid a "goggle effect".
This high quality model has a nice combination of attributes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 33Briggs Stylish and practical sunglasses
My second pair of bifocal sunglasses. Alas, first were lost! They are comfortable and really ideal for sport and travel. In addition, they look great. They are worth the price and I have recommended them to friends and family. I am a long time customer and remain satisfied with the service and quality of LL Bean products. I am glad there is one retailer I can still rely on.
