Rated 4 out of 5 by Tarponman Polarized
These are nice glasses, but although it doesn't say so in the LL Bean copy, they are polarized. I was looking for non-polarized sunglasses and so bought these based on the description. However, I am going to keep them for fishing.

As a person who needs reading glasses having sunglasses with reading lenses is very useful. Whether trying to read cycling route maps, bike computer, phone or other device, these are a great help as well as providing polarization to keep flare to a minimum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrHomer The BEST protection EVER Plus...
After wearing my $1500 "sunglasses" for a few months I began to feel like even my eyelids were sun burning. I wear trifocals and didn't want to spend a LOT of money again so, when I saw your bifocal TRUE wrap around sunglass, I gladly took a chance. Now I can be in the sun without ANY glare and also read my iPhone with the bifocal. AMAZING! As always, you do a good job. Thank you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ScreamingHoller Some issues in heat
Basically, these sunglasses are nearly optically perfect and fit me very well. I have a big head but these have no problem staying on or aligning to my eyes correctly. The main problem is that they can't tolerate being placed in a hot location, like the dash of my Jeep. My Jeep interior is black, and I typically place them on the dash when not used. In the hot summers where I live, the dash can get very hot. The heat caused the thin plastic coating on the sunglasses to warp and wrinkle, especially on the temples and temple tips. The wrinkles ended up being very rough and caused soreness on my ears. The good news is that this plastic coating can be peeled off to get rid of the roughness. They don't look as good now but at least I can wear them without discomfort. Otherwise, these are excellent sunglasses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maineiyak Perfect for Outdoor Adventures
These sunglasses are great for the outdoor enthusiast. Comfortable, lightweight just dark enough. The bi-focal part is low enough not to be in your field of vision. And now I can read my GPS without squinting or getting out my reading glasses.

I have purchased two pairs, one for a girlfriend and one for myself. We both like the clarity and brightness of the lens plus the convince of the reading (or fishing) insert.

These sunglasses are awesome! They really cut the glare and are very comfortable. It's so nice to be able to read without having to remove sunglasses and put on my "readers". They are perfect for the beach, driving...anywhere. I 'll be ordering a spare pair to leave in the car.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bicycleforever great sunglasses for awhile
Love these glasses on a tour in France. Easy to read tour maps but the second trip I wore these, the lens fell out on the road and they are not supposed to be removed so I would not recommend these glasses.

Rated 3 out of 5 by FloridaFlyFisher Great but let too much light in
What they do, they do very well. Unfortunately, they let way too much light in on the sides of the lenses. I purchased these to replace my 20 year old pair of Costa Del Mar Deep Blue. I now use half-eyes or readers at +2.50 and need them when tying flys, even my large saltwater streamers.
The Suncloud Zephyr Bifocal Sunglasses work great as bifocals but fall short at protecting your eyes from side glare. If the lenses wrapped a little further around the side they would be perfect.

I recently purchased these sport reader sunglasses and am pleased with the purchase. I wear progressive glasses and really need them for reading up close. I'm very active and often engaged in outdoors sports at all seasons, so I needed reader sunglasses that: fit firmly, had a sport profile, and helped me read maps and fitness units (gps, odometers, etc). These fit the bill. They are very light and I don't have long-term experience with them yet, so I can't speak to their sturdiness (If there is a problem, LL Bean's great policies will have me covered, no doubt). I've had them out on a hike, on open water and on a fast, sweaty bike ride and they performed very well. The polarized lenses helped with glare, the wrap profile helped with wind, and the bi-focal lens helped me read maps, guides and devices. I have a larger size head; these fit well without being tight.
