Be Weary of Paint Chipping
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Don't get me wrong, I like these a lot. Wear them almost every single day. They're durable, structurally. I've been having issues with pain chipping off the frame, the part that rubs against the ear. So instead of back, it's come off to the point where you can see through the sunglasses and the clear plastic. They have offered to replace them for me, however, I don't want to be out of my favorite sunglasses for 4-6 weeks. Maybe purchase a slightly higher-end model and it won't do this if you're concerned about the aesthetic?

Got these to replace my Oakley Fives when they switched the styling. Very happy with these glasses. Polarization is some of the best I've had. Glasses have a very sporty fit and stay on your head like a champ. No issue with wind when biking or skiing. Lenses came out easily when I needed them to but not when I didn't want them to come out. These went the distance until I lost them... a chronic problem I have.
Only somewhat interchangeable.

The lenses that came with these fit nice and snugly, but the lenses that I bought do not fit well at all. They pop out constantly, even though they are the correct model and appear to be the same size. The glasses themselves as you can order on this page are awesome, but just be wary if you plan to purchase additional lenses and change them frequently.
have a small face it says their a med fit...
have a small face it says their a med fit was wondering if i'd look like an a** in these. any help would be appreciated
you can check the native eyewear website to see their sizing chart. i find it very helpful when choosing native sunglasses. i was sad to lose my attacks. they were the best.
follow this link then look for the "size chart" on the right hand side as part of the product description.
Maybe a bit late but I just picked these up. Sizing on my face these things are tiny. I would consider myself on the bigger face size so it's my fault for not checking the description that says medium. Width wise these are perfect, nose pads were awesome, but on my face they look like my daughter's sunglasses. Definitely would look better on a small face.
Definitely a more low-profile sunglass. Fit similar to the old Oakley 5s. These look best on small and average sized heads. Also keep in mind your face shape. These might not be the best for round faces.
Can't go wrong with Native
When it came time to replace my original, worn out pair of Native's it was a simple choice for me to stick with the same brand. For starters, my original pair lasted about 8 years before I had any problem with them at all; that's pretty darn good, if you ask me. Beyond that, they fit my face really well, they're light weight, the leses are vented on the top to prevent fogging... what more can you really ask for? How about the ability to easily replace/switch lenses... mine came with blue lenses, but I bought a second set direct from Native in another color. They interchange in seconds! Highly recommended!
Best of the Natives
Love Natives. Love these guys. Fit my rather wide head real well. I have two pair, and several different lenses. SAC had some great deals on them.
Seem like nice glasses, but mine didn't...
Seem like nice glasses, but mine didn't have any instructions on how to change the lens and its not so obvious. Can someone share with me?
push the lens out from the inside on the outter (temple) edge.
There is a little tab on the upper inside edge...you need to be a little tough on them. Don't worry you won't hurt them...
My new Go-To sunglasses
I got these with the blue reflex lenses, and they quickly became the glasses I use most. They are dark enough for really bright light (10% light transmission) and they cut glare really well. They are light and comfortable, and they stay in place very well when running or cycling. Two downsides: first, the gray lens base preserves true color, but doesn't enhance contrast they way a brown or copper base would, so I prefer my Kaenons when sailing; second, the Reflex coating seems a bit fragile. Mine are pretty scratched up, but I guess I've been hard on them.
These are sunglasses
I have another pair of Native sunglasses, and felt that they had good optical quality and fit. The only issue I had with those was the finish (paint) is coming off around the ear pieces. The reason I went with the Throttles is that you can change the lenses, which I wanted to be able to adjust to riding conditions for mountain biking. So far, they are working out great. The fit is close, and they stay put when running or cycling. I am hoping the paint stays on over the ear pieces over time.
What does "reflex" mean on the Throttle...
What does "reflex" mean on the Throttle and Ignition options? What's the difference between "Jungle" and "Maple Tort" on the Throttle glasses?
Write your answer here...Reflex means a really dark lens-so make sure you want a dark lens with these shades.good for very bright light, but not so good for shade or intermittant light.go to Native's website if you need more info.
I have a big head (23" helmet size) on the wide side but took a chance with theses not having tried them. The attack were just a little too big. The fit is really good, any narrower and it would touch the side of my face. There is just enough clearance all the way around. The fit is low profile and very comfy. Lenses stay put and are easy to replace once you get the hang of it. I do it slightly differently than the directions and it works so much easier. I like the blue reflex. Very happy. I own the dash xr and fit OK, but sit too low on my nose.
Not just for women
I picked this up to replace a dying pair of Oakleys and am I impressed! Outside magazine gear review has this listed as a womens frame which is incorrect. There are several frames which are more feminine, but I went with the Aspahlt/Grey which are extremely lightweight, very comfortable and well made.
I've always been very picky about buying sunglasses online b/c I'm not sure how they fit. I took a risk on spending the money on these sunglasses but they turned out great. They are very styling, fit well, and worth the price if you are willing to spend this much.
I love these sunglasses. The polarized lenses are great, frame is small but still provides total coverage, and they are surprisingly lightweight. A winner!
