RIP at the bottom of Lake Hartwell
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Kaenon Burnet Sunglasses, oh how I loved you so.
On the boat, ready to surf, dive into the water I go.
Should have known, with a lens so clear, that you were on my face.
Cause, while underwater I saw you sink at an incredible pace.
Each day since, as I'm about, with the sun blinding the sky,
I'm reminded of your mighty shield that once polarized my eyes.
I dream of the day, upon each day of when I will wear you again,
I just cant imagine spending another freaking fortune again.
Question: how much smaller is the Burnet...
Question: how much smaller is the Burnet vs the Burny (dimensions, weight, etc)? Loved my pair of Burny's but lost them last week swimming across an estuary in CR without my Croakies (do'h)! Sunglasses pictured are the Burny...
The specs for the Burnet are as follows:Temple Length: 118 mm
Frame Width: 140 mm
Weight: 1.1 oz
Lens Height: 44 mm
Lens Width: 58 mm
Bridge: 15 mm
For comparison here are the Burney specs:
Frame Width: 141 mm
Lens Height: 42 mm
Lens Width: 62 mm
Bridge: 17 mm
It's like my eyes have a "dimmer" switch
These glasses are just too cool. Pretty sure anyone would look awesome in them. I'm extremely picky about eye protection and Kaenon's are my new obsession. I tend to take glasses everywhere; into the water, running, sleeping... These ones fit great and have AMAZING clarity. It's like I'm not even wearing sunglasses, just my eyes used their own dimmer. AWESOME!
The Best, hands down
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had a lot of sunglasses. Most have been polarized. These are hands down the most comfortable, best fitting sunglasses I've ever had. Rubberized nose piece adds comfort and grip and the frames stay put on your face extremely well. The lens is unmatched for clarity and weight. Hinges are well built and frames seem very durable. No one wants to pay $240 for sunglasses that are going to fall off doing anything active...especially something like deep water fishing and have them slip off your face into the water. These can be worn running, hiking, biking and even kayaking or rafting (although I'd get some chums!). If you have the cash, and are good at keeping track of your sunglasses, pull the trigger.... you wont regret it. * MADE IN ITALY
Can't beat it
Kaenon sunglasses are the way to go. I bought my first pair 4 years ago and haven't even thought about using anything else. the best polarized sunglasses you can get, that look good and feel good.. awesome for sports too. the newer burnets have a snugger fit so they don't feel like there going to fall off. get a pair! you won't regret it
special sauce boss
The Burnet is my first pair of sunnies from Kaenon (pronounced "kay-nun" - just throwing that out there), and I'm now confident it won't be my last. It's not kool-aid; the SR-91 lens technology that Kaenon has patented is the real deal. The downside with many polarized lenses is that the polarization filter often adversely impacts the clarity of the lens itself, but that's the magic of SR-91 -- it delivers maximum glare reduction while still preserving its near-perfect clarity. Kaenon also adds a comprehensive series of scratch/impact and moisture-resistant coatings to the lenses, which have a nice mirrored finish to them - even the lighter Copper series of lenses. Now, as for the Burnet frame itself (I got the Special Sauce colorway), it's masterfully constructed in Italy using a very high quality and lightweight TR-90 plastic. I would have almost preferred that Kaenon use acetate, as it would allow for a little more precise frame adjustment, at only a slight weight penalty. I only say this, because the Burnet is definitely a smaller frame best suited for medium-sized faces. If you need a little more coverage but love this subtle retro style, check out the Burny. I'm willing to forgive the minor sizing gripes though, as the Burnet really is an impressive and timeless sunny, and one I fully expect to wear when out for long hours out on the road or water.
* Special Sauce, Black/Tortoise, and the Tortoise colorways are quite a bit darker than pictured - only under direct sunlight do the colors really come alive
* Kaenon has discontinued the pictured silver hard case, and is now shipping its sunglasses with a zippered black and orange soft case, along with the included microfiber storage bag
What size of head are these glasses made...
What size of head are these glasses made for ?
I would say this is a Small-to-Medium frame.
what is difference between G12 and c12?
what is difference between G12 and c12?
G12 is a gray lens. C12 is a copper lens. They both have the same amount of light transmission (12%). I have the c12, Havana. It's my guru photo on the page... So you can clearly see the copper lenses aren't as bright as they look in the photos.
These are sick. Havana isn't as bright as the picture shows which I like more.
best i've ever worn
I wear these daily and love them. The black/tortoise is darker looking that it is in the photo above, definitely not as bright looking. I've taken these hiking, stand up paddling, through two summers at the beach, running, etc. and they still look brand new. No scratches, no delaminating of the lenses, the frames are still in the exact same shape as when I first got them (no warping at all) and I leave them in my hot car all the time. Couldn't recommend a better sunglass. Seriously everyone that I let try them on wants a pair.
