Rated 3 out of 5 by MidnightBlue OK, not great
-Not as curved or 'wrap-around' as the other styles I tried (but still not straight). For me that's a big plus. I find the other styles very uncomfortable. I wish Bean would sell some completely straight sunglasses. Also not quite as big as some (I'm female with a medium build, 5'5, 128 pounds, and I wouldn't want any larger).
-Good for a quick glance at my phone or iPod when out walking, or a map in the car, so eliminates the need to take off sunglasses and put on reading glasses in situations like these. I would not find them comfortable to actually read with for more than a couple minutes or so.
-Bifocal part is just a piece of pasted-on plastic, not a separate cut-in part of the lens. For the price ($99) I assumed it would be the latter and it really should be Also, I get very annoying glares of light from the edge where the top of the plastic starts, which would not be the case if it were hard plastic cut into the regular lenses. Big con!
-Case, while extremely sturdy is way too big and heavy to carry in a purse or pocket, so is only useful when storing at home. I will need to find another one to carry to protect the glasses when I want to take with me somewhere, but not necessarily wear all the time.
-Must get used to the lower part of the lens blurring everything when looking straight out. Personally I could use the bifocal part being a bit lower to help with this issue, but others may find it perfectly situated.
Please re-design the case and replace the disappointing cheap pasted-on magnification with a magnifieer that is actually part of the lens! I intend to try these for a few more days to see if I can get use to the glare that creates as I'd like to be able to keep.

Love the fit, comfortable and polarized, which was a must. Readers well placed, not too big.
