Great Sunglasses

by Bob, from United States, OH Written on April 7, 2015
I have been using these glasses since I was in the USAF in the late 50s and early 60s and they are without a doubt the best I have ever used. While the price has gone up over the years the quality certainly has not. Both the Air Force and Navy have these in their base exchanges or you can find them on-line....

these glasses are too big

by sad, from United States, TX Written on April 7, 2015
these glasses were too big for my face even though i really liked them. they took a long time to arrive so i am reluctant to order a different pair. i did like the glasses themselves, which look really well made....

Very good and sturdy

by Kiran, from United States, NJ Written on March 31, 2015
Ordered a matte chrome cosmetan brown, polarized AO (52 mm, being already the owner of a 55 mm gold frame true color gray AO glasses).
Always loved the style and this piece is no exception.
Decent packaging (minus the missing cleaning cloth).
Being made from glass, these are very sturdy and feel just right.
You shouldn't go wrong with these....

Great value

by Greg, from United States, MA Written on March 22, 2015
As good as any of the Luxotica brands for about 60% of the price. Helps to be outside that vertical monopoly. The frames are definitely sturdier than the current Ray-Ban offerings, which have definitely declined in value since being acquired by Luxotica. Recommend....

AO Original Pilot Sunglasses

by Pilot, from United States, NV Written on March 19, 2015
Love them!!! They fit perfect and look HOT!! The ordering process was a little difficult trying to decide between 52mm and 55mm. It would have been helpful if the site provide a "real size" guide. Otherwise, everything was great....

Excellent quality for a great price

by James Cameron, from United Kingdom Written on November 25, 2014
Very solid pair of sunglasses - you can really feel the quality. I opted for the comfort cable as I wear a headset at work - much more comfortable between my ears and my head than a standard bayonet fitting....

Really great sunglasses

by Sonny, from United States, NH Written on October 14, 2014
I've been looking for a good pair of sunglasses and checked out Ray Ban and others but these are great glasses for the money. They are comparable to the other name brand glasses and I'm glad I found these. I liked them so much that I ordered another pair so I can have a pair in each of my cars....

Black AO Pilot Glass Frame Color Not Quite Right

by HarleyD1259, from United States, NC Written on October 13, 2014
I have been using AO Pilot Sunglasses for years in the military and know the high quality of these glasses and this company. I ordered two sets of Black Framed Pilot Sunglasses with the comfort cable temples. For some reason both frames appeared to be a brownish "gun metal" color rather than black so I returned them for a refund. The label on each of glass box indicated black frames but they did not look black to me. Could just be me but not what I wanted for the price since I was going to have prescription lens added by my local optometrist. I have always opted for the flat silver frames in the past and have never been disappointed with the color, fit, and quality of AO glasses. I thought I would give the black frames a try but will stay with silver for now.

The Comfort Cable Temples are awesome for flying with ANR headsets as not to break the ear seals and aerobatics so they stay in place under G force....
Pros:
  • Comfortable
  • Stylish
  • great quality product
  • Different Temple Choices
Cons:
  • Black frame off color to me
  • Black frames appeared Gun Metal color
Best Used for:
  • flying
  • Any activity with headphones
  • Any activity or life style
Would recommend: Yes

Back for a replacement. I hope I don't lose these.

by Annie, from United States, TN Written on October 12, 2014
I got 55mm, wire spatula, amber polarized lens, the lens made everything look nicer. The only con was every time I look down they would scoot down my nose and I would have to push them back up. I bought bayonet type for my boyfriend. Wire spatula and bayonet both fall down face. I hope whoever found my pair is enjoying them. I want to try the comfort cable and hope it stays up better and doesn't feel uncomfortable. Bayonet frame seems sturdier than wire spatula. My ray ban wayfarer stays on my face perfect but the lenses isn't near as nice as these AO's. I think the AO's fall off easier because the metal frame is heavier than a plastic frame. I don't like nose piece. You cannot wear AO's on your head when going in stores. They won't stay on. Optics planet is a great company to order from. They shipped my first pair faster that backorder stated!...
Pros:
  • Looks good
  • Polarized amber lens
Cons:
  • Falls down easy
  • Nosepeice

Glasses Help the Eyeballs

by Me, from United States, NY Written on September 8, 2014
They help keep the sun out of your eye unless you leave them in your office desk over the weekend. Looking forward to using them on my next car journey. Which means it would have been smart to purchase before me summer car journeys but oh well....
