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....

Wild Animal

by Warbird, from United States, MA Written on September 6, 2014
I've had these type of glasses since they were first issued to me in flight school over 25 years ago. The issue sunglasses were 52mm Matte Chrome Bayonets with Polarized Gray lenses. Over the years I've grown an affinity for Brown Polarized. OpticsPlanet allowed me to "build" the glasses I REALLY wanted and now I have them: 52mm Matte Chrome Bayonets with Polarized Brown glass! They're kind of a wild animal, but they're perfect. Warbird out....

First Pair of Sunglasses

by Al, from United States, CA Written on September 5, 2014
I was tired of dealing with the bright, eye squinting, California sun for what seemed every morning, so I decided to purchase some aviators to finally be able to drive in peace on my way to work. I ordered the following model:

Cosemetan Brown Lenses
55 mm
Polarized
Wire Spatula
Gold Frame

The sunglasses are great, they block out the sun, allow me to drive in peace, and allow me to still distinguish color. Glare is virtually non existent while wearing them, and they are fairly comfortable on my head. The only thing I wish I had known was regarding the lens diameter. I have a fairly big head, and while the sunglasses fit, I feel I should have purchased the 57 mm, yet they would have taken 10 weeks for a reorder/replacement. For people who have a fairly large head, I would suggest going to the 57 mm. Overall, I am satisfied with the purchase, and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great pair of sunglasses and want a reasonably priced pair....
Pros:
  • polarized
  • Sturdy
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • Driving and beach

practical & good lookin' too

by hewhoisdom, from United States, NY Written on August 30, 2014
I like these glasses so much that I'm ordering another pair after losing the first at the beach. They look great and do the job. I like the comfort cable, but it was a little uncomfortable. Still, if you're bald like me the comfort cable keeps the glasses from falling off your face when you bend....

Best pair of sunglasses I have ever owned.

by Geoffrey, from United States, TX Written on August 26, 2014
You can spend 3 times this amount on a pair of copycat Ray Bans and still not get the quality that you get with AO. Watch old WWII videos and you will notice every aviator is wearing a pair. Best pair of sunglasses I have ever owned....

Over a year and still going strong

by Matt, from United States, MN Written on August 20, 2014
I love these. I have worn them in around cities, hiking in mountains, fishing in the country, traveling, through bitter cold and blistering heat - pretty much all the time. My sunglasses have been dropped at least a dozen times by my careless hands onto asphalt, rocks, and more, and show barely a scratch. I even popped out a lens by accident a couple months ago, which easily popped back in. I love the shape of the "pilot," and frequently get compliments here and while traveling abroad. It is so refreshing to find something that is more attractive than Ray Ban (to me at least), more durable than Ray Ban, not as ubiquitous as Ray Ban, and all at the same time much cheaper than Ray Ban. Keep it up! I look forward to being a loyal AO customer for years to come....
Pros:
  • value
  • durable
  • High quality
  • Appearance
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • Mountain Trekking
  • urban life
  • fishing
  • driving
  • eye protection

Cool goggles!

by GJ, from Netherlands, ZUID-HOLLAND Written on August 14, 2014
Very light weighted and very cool pair of sunglasses! In the Netherlands the AO Original Pilot sunglasses are not very well known so this is really something special over here. I ordered the Matte Chrome, CC Gray Poly Lens, 52mm, Bayonet, Polarized model but unfortunately they are a little bit too small for me. I’ll order the 55 mm model, same specifications....

Great sunglasses

by Z, from United States, NY Written on August 10, 2014
I wore these in the cockpit for years, and now I wear them outside as well. Great sunglasses, available in any combination of temples, frames, and lenses. These are indistinguishable from Randolph Engineering sunglasses, but less expensive....

These sunglasses are OK

by Brian, from United States, IL Written on August 7, 2014
These sunglasses are OK. They look very good on me but I am not sure how they would look on someone with a smaller head. I guess every now and then it is good to have a large head, huh. Anyway, they are very comfortable and stylish. The only complaint is that the nose piece feels a bit tall....

Great glasses

by Mave, from United States, IL Written on August 7, 2014
These glasses are really great. Sleek style and comfortable. I highly recommend them to everyone looking to keep the sun out of their eyes while also looking good to everyone else. Go for a darker shade if you do not want your eyes to be seen!...
