Kaenon Beacon SR91 (Polarized)

I have trouble finding sunglasses that provide clear vision. After researching and reading many positive reviews about this brand, I decided to try one more time. These have proved to be the best yet - providing the clearest vision of any I've tried. This style, as all the other reviewers have indicated, fits close and is best for a medium to small head.

I'd also recommend: none

This is my fourth pair of Kaenon's over the years. I stumbled upon them a few years ago and found out that they still produce in Italy which is rare. That's all I really needed to know to become interested in them, I only wish they offered more styles than they do. Don't get me wrong - they have something for everybody but there are other brands who give you more choices yet the quality isn't as great as Kaenons. Either way though I feel extremely confident when buying a pair of Kaenons. The Beacon has a much smaller frame than the others I have owned. Think rectangular and slightly cat eyed (upwards). If you've never tried on "lean" looking lenses then you will likely be 50/50 on these so expect a possible return. They remind me of the squarish type glasses "LOCS" or a style you would see a lot in Southern California. Would love glass lenses but these are still great. Remember think thin and lean when you order these. My hat size is a 7 1/2 fitted. I would not recommend this to anyone with a larger head size...too lean. Smallish to reasonable medium better off.

I'd also recommend: Arnette

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.
