When you see the Kaenon Burnet Black Label Sunglasses, you can imagine cruising down the street, perhaps in a souped-up '60s T-Top. These polarized glasses balance classic design with modern performance. From behind the wheel, the Burnet's SR-91 polarized lenses cut the glare off the freshly waxed hood, and Variflex nose pads offer ultimate comfort. Discrete branding and a pure metal inlay keep up the good looks, even at close range. Go ahead, juice the gas pedal a little, and enjoy the view from behind these optically crisp, distortion-free shades.

This is my second pair of Kaenons and I could not be more pleased. I use them for everything including ski touring, golf and casual wear. I have compared them side by side with all the major competitors' composite lenses and nothing comes close in terms of clarity (Oakley's new PRIZM is the only thing that comes close but, I still have a slight preference towards the Kaenon lens).
The lens is a polycarbonate grey lens with a slightly mirrored finish. Kaenon calls the lens G12 as it is Grey and has a VLT of 12%. This is their darkest lens. I take pretty good care of the glasses/lenses so can not really speak to their durability but I am approaching the year mark with these glasses and the lenses do not have any scratches on them whatsoever. Just keep an eye on the hinge. If it gets too loose, the ear piece can rub against the back of the lens when the glasses are folded. A quick tighten of the hinge remedies this issue.
In terms of fit, the technical specifications are accurate in recommending these frames for small-medium faces. I tried on the bigger brother, The Burny, and they were much too large for my face. The Burnets do a great job of walking the line between a sport specific frame and a lifestyle frame. As long as you are not doing anything too crazy that would require the frames to be closer to your face, these are a perfect option for any activity in the sun.
All in all, if I lost these glasses, I would not hesitate to replace them with the same pair.
Here is a selfie I accidentally took when trying to get my phone out to snap a picture. It should give a pretty clear idea as to how they fit the face.
