- Q & A
Like them, but they are narrow
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
This is my 5th pair of Kaenons. I really love the lenses and quality. My favorite pair finally got scratched after 6 or 7 years. The others are going strong. This is definitely the narrowest pair I've had though and are nearly too small for my face.
Liked, but too tight
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
Although I was glad to have polarized lenses, I was not happy with the fit of these sunglasses. Fashion aside, (the look was fine), but they were too tight. That is crucial to me when I was planning on using them for outdoor activities. For the length of time I would be wearing them, comfort is too important, and these aren't going to work.
Nice, but made for very small faces
I got these sunglasses mainly for fly-fishing but also all around use. They are great but are pretty snug around the temples, and I am a very small framed girl, with a very small face. I would advise a different style if you are concerned with comfort. I have only had them for a month or so and the quality seems great for my first pair of Kaenons.
Kaenon Bolsa - Best Sunglasses for Smaller Faces
I have a very hard time finding sunglasses that fit my relatively small face, and the Bolsa is the best I've ever found. I'd say these are slightly narrower than the Smith Method, and for me are a better fit. Other than that, they are a very similar frame shape. The Kaenon lenses are top of the line, and everything is very crisp. I also won't buy anything that isn't polarized. The lenses do not seem as dark as others I've worn, though I never find myself squinting, even in the brightest of light. It seems that enough of the visible light is blocked to keep your eyes relaxed while the visuals remain bright. This also means that these do well in a wider range of light conditions (better than others in lower light). My only complaint is that I sometimes see the top and bottom of the frames in the upper and lower range of my peripheral vision. I highly recommend Keanon sunglasses, and these are the best choice for those with smaller faces.
As a side note, the C lenses are Copper colored and the G grey. All lenses offered in the Bolsa frame let through 12% of visible light.
Best fit and great lenses
Small face fit glasses are really hard to come by but these are perfect. They have a fashionable square shape to the lenses but they don't overwhelm my face like most BIG glasses do, these fit so well. The lenses are to die for clear; I don't think I've ever loved my sunglasses so much until now. If you are considering Kaenon - I'd definitely say to give them a try, you won't be disappointed!
Worth the Sticker Shock
These are pretty expensive glasses, but theyre worth the money. Even on bright sunny days, these glasses will keep you from squinting but give great visibility. On cloudy days they'll make everything look sunny and clear.

Write your question here... i was considering...
Write your question here... i was considering buying the kaenon bolsa polarized sun glasses cant decide between those and the wiley x reign polarized ineed them mostly for fishing ineed the best lences for the bottom of murky water.whats your honest opinion?
I can't comment specifically on the Bolsa, but I really like the Kaenon SR-91 polarized lenses for fishing. Obviously, no lens is going to allow you to see through murky water; what polarized sunglasses can do is allow you to see through the surface glare (to better see what's under the water). I've tried polarized glasses by many manufacturers (Oakley, Maui Jim, Action Optics, Bolle, Smith, etc.) yet haven't found any that top Kaenon polarized. It's also important to find sunglasses that fit your face well and don't let in too much light around (or below) the lenses. Also, there are different lens colors, as well as lenses that let in more/less light, so one lens may work best on bright and sunny days, while another will work better on overcast days (or once the sun is off of the water).
