So far so good... obviously sunglasses are so personal in terms of fit and style but I can tell you the lens quality on these seems amazing (to an amateur).

I have tried almost every brand of sunglasses and there are few brands that match Kaenon's Quality and Value. The Copper lenses are incredible, great for driving, they make colors more vivid, and if you go to the beach or the water a lot like I do, the clarity when looking into the water is unparalleled. I give them 4 stars for style only because I have a small face and so they left a gap around the hinges that I didn't like, so I exchanged them for Kaenon UPD's (my first exchange with Zappos and I was very impressed). If you have a medium to large face, get these, you won't be disappointed. I wish they fit me better.

This is my first pair of high end sunglasses and I'm very satisfied. In this case they're just not charging for the brand, these are quality.

I have had these sunglasses a couple weeks now and I can say I am happy with them. These glasses have a quality view and definitely look good compared to anything I have had before. One thing I like is that they fit snug to my face, and I have a somewhat narrow one, and do not slide down my nose if I lean forward--even while sweating. They have rubber pads inside the nose piece that help grip the glasses to the face and keep them from sliding even when your face is greasy or sweating. The only downside, and my only complaint, of this "snug fit" is that I can feel a slight pinch behind my ears after a few hours of wear, but honestly it is not too bad and probably better than constantly slipping if I were active while wearing them.

Initially, I was drawn to this pair due to the combination tortoise shell frame and grey lenses which is uncommon but preferred by me. I hadn't heard of Kaenon before. I have to say that for the other high end sunglasses I've bought, the fit and construction of these actually match the price. These sunglasses are incredibly comfortable with the inset rubber in the nose piece and the temples that wrap to hold them firmly yet comfortably on your head. The lenses are as good if not better than Maui Jim, the lens technology leverages the durability of polycarbonate and the clarity of glass.

I'd also recommend: Maui Jim
