Great sunglasses!

I've had another smaller pair of Natives for several years and have been really happy with them. When my kids scratched my Spy glasses, I turned to the Natives. The lifetime warranty is a plus, but I wouldn't have bought them if they didn't fit so well. I wanted a second pair of glasses with a larger profile and more side coverage and these fit the bill perfectly. The nose pieces are grippy, but the temples are not. They stay put very well. I also like the down-curved temples because one problem I've had with straighter temples is that they bump against a hatband. One downside is that extra lenses are not included. I love the amber lenses of my other pair, and maybe I'll buy those for the Bombers someday.

Native is a quality brand, which builds durable shades. The bomber fit my 23 inch head and face much better than the slimmer Triumph. If you have a larger requirement for sunglasses, they can be hard to find. The bomber fit nicely, won't fall off while in action, and there's minimal behind the ear pinch. I always have this problem, the bomber is made for guys with a mellon. They might fit bug'ishly on a slender dome. The lenses are what you'd expect from a polarized Native. They make cloudy, low-lit days bright and block sunshine and glare perfectly. The styling on the wood frames is really new and nicely updates the typical brown framed shade that I always sick with. The brown lenses are pretty solid all-around. Rose lenses are my favorite, but I am really happy with these. Doubt I'll be changing the lenses out for conditions; work great in all light conditions as the rose version do... for those who are a rose fan.
