Rated 5 out of 5 by Nighthawk865 Comfortable, light weight, highly functional
These are the best pair of sunglasses I have owned. I've used them for almost a year now and they have stood up to all the use through which I've put them from biking in San Francisco, to regular use at college in Boston. The first thing you'll notice about these glasses is just how lightweight they are. They have rubberized grips on the frames where the body will make contact with the side of your head for grip. The nosepad on the bridge feels like a rubber material as well, adding for even more grip during wear.
Notably, a light weight and body does not make these glasses flimsy and easy to break. They are rather well built, on the contrary.
One thing I would suggest is to be careful if you're wearing them on your shirt (when you step indoors or into a bus, for instance). I nearly lost them in San Francisco when I knocked them off my shirt, only to find them a few minutes later (to my relief!) on the floor. From them on, I decided to just put them back in their case and my backpack when I'm not wearing them, so that I won't lose them.
A wonderful buy and I would highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gemini8 top quality maui jim and llbean
These Maui Jim sunglasses have all the expected features including the must have anti-reflective coating on the inside of the lenses. They are also extremely light weight and don't weigh heavy on the nose. The rubberized nose piece helps them not slip. Very comfortable and come with protective bag/cleaning cloth and zippered case. This is a good combination of the Maui Jim and LLBean quality in one product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jrouha Very light sunglasses!
I got these sunglasses about a week ago and think they are great so far.
They are the lightest pair of sunglasses I have every owned. While this is great, I know I'm going to need to be careful not to lose them or handle them too roughly.
I've got a large face with a big nose... and they fit me great. I would not think they would look very good on a petite person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nighthawk865 Great fit, lightweight, durable
I just got these glasses in the last month. At first when I tried them on they felt like toys (very very light and I thought they seemed cheap), and too large. However, I quickly got used to them in a couple of days. THe flexibility of the frame and the look is definitely appealing. I highly recommend this pair of sunglasses as a versatile daily-use pair. They're adaptable enough for me to throw on with a suit or just on a sunny day outside with more relaxed clothing. They feel incredibly durable and I expect that these will last with me for quite some time.
