poor quality. brand tries to be all hipster cool but its mediocre in its execution. the army green canvas case is unfinished on the inside and leaves lint all over the lens of the glasses... really stupid design! they also fit huge. sent back right away.

I absolutely love these sunglasses! Yes, they are huge, and I have a somewhat small face, but I like to block out the maximum amount of light possible and avoid eye contact with people, and these babies get the job done. Every other pair that I have had has had annoying problems like slipping, nose pieces tangling in my hair when putting up on my head, light entering sides, pressure points, etc. I mean, I could go on and on; you guys probably know already. But the design and materials of this Penny Lane pair is genius. I can sweat like a pig and move around like crazy and they do not move a millimeter, or cause any discomfort in the process. About the lenses - I am impressed. I like grey/black polarized lenses, so that is what I bought. The clarity and degree of shading is perfect in my opinion. These must have been designed by athletic, outdoorsy people because it is easy to see what is going on around you, even in bright sunlight and more dim conditions. I keep these on even at dusk and have no problems seeing. I forget that I have them on sometimes because they are so comfortable. The notch above the ears gives a locking effect and eliminates pressure in that area. So smart! I really feel like the character of these glasses is sporty/athletic, but the style is sophisticated and does give off a 60s vibe. The different color choices change the overall tone and style. I feel that the lighter, contrasting color frames are more sporty-looking than the black and tortoise styles. It is obvious that I am thrilled with my Zeals, right?! I lost a pair recently and it hurt to kick out so much money to replace them, but there was no question that I could not live without them. Try them out! You can always send them back if you do not like them. I think they are unique looking now in 2016. Everyone is wearing 80s styles now, but I am telling you... These are still cool!

I love the look and fit of these Goggles, but the quality of the lens is suspect. I have worn them 7 times this ski season and the lens scratches with any minimal contact. I take great care to keep the goggles in the bag when not in use, but the lens in completely scratched. Not happy with the quality/toughness of the lens.

My husband and I both ordered about 10 pairs of sunglasses on Zappos - we were determined to find a pair that we liked that was affordable. We both picked Zeal! These are really nice sunglasses and we both like them more than our more expensive ones!

I really wanted to love these sunglasses when I found them at a local gear shop (did not buy from Nordstrom, but want this community to be aware of the issues with this product). Looking at them, they are a great riff on a basic shape and I loved the matte finish, polarized lenses and minimalist design. They look and feel great on, and they're biodegradable?? How cool is that? Unfortunately, I am about to send my pair back for their second repair. The first break was less than 2 weeks from purchase and the arm snapped right off behind the hinge when I was putting them on. This week I noticed the frame cracked on the nose side of the lens and when it snaps, the lens will pop out. I have been very gentle with them and they have been in a case or on my face the whole 2 months I've owned them. I have to give Zeal credit for having a great repair policy and waiving the fee for me the first time, but I wouldn't recommend these frames to you unless you get 2 pairs--one to use until they break and then another one to wear while you wait the 2 weeks it takes to have them repaired. Sorry Zeal, but I think this material needs some more testing before you charge money for it!!

I have enjoyed my Zeal Kennedy sunglasses very much. A friend of mine had a pair while we were fly fishing and I tried them out. The ellume polarized lenses really made a difference on the amount of trout I could see in the river and where the holes and structure were under the water. The frames are light and comfortable and the proflex design allow them to stay on your face with the rubber nose and ear pieces to help. The frames also seem to be very durable as well. It's almost like they aren't even there. I also like the stylish frames and have received many good comments from friends. I would definitely recommend.

Bought these for my partner, who is looking for a more lightweight alternative to Ray-Ban Clubmasters. The style isn't bad, but am returning because they are a little tight around the temples/head.

Really love these shades. This is the second pair I have owned. They are super light but still have a top end polarized lens. Plus people are always asking me "what kind of sunglasses they are" since the brand is relatively unknown. You definitely can't find these in a sunglass hut

Awesome product, 6 days at Breck all kinds of conditions and I was the envy of the 6 guys that were with me. They were changing lenses or goggles and these did everything with no fogging and a spectacular view.

These are a nice style but they are too small for me on the nose. I do not have a wide nose but it would work for someone with a thin nose. I also see a imperfection in the lens. I do not think that the glasses are worth the price. I am returning them.

Cutest shades I've ever owned! I love the wood accents on the side and the dark grey lens -- it is one of the cutest aviator frames I've found. i usually have a problem with aviators being to big for my face, however these are small enough that they fit just right!

This sunglass is so cute! It has that big frame feel that makes you feel like a rock star when you rock down the street! I absolutely love this frame!

Love these glasses! I like fashionable sunglasses and usually buy the cheap variety, as I live at the beach and lose them or they slide of my head & break. All that changed recently when my friend was donning these fabulous stylish functional sunglasses in a gorgeous aqua green color. I was initially attracted to the style. When I tried them on, the extra added bonuses were the reason I ended up buying - the lenses are polarized, cutting glare & making them perfect for being in and on the water. I stand up paddle board & these cut the glare on the ocean. Secondly, they are slip-proof! You can look down, shake your head, bounce around, jump and they stay put! No more sliding glasses or having to wear Croakies to keep your eyewear in place. this is the most I've spent on sunglasses and they're worth every penny. Stylish, awesome colors from which to choose, the polarized lenses that help you see the world more clearly on bright sunny days and they stay on your head. Great for athletes who sweat & water activities. I'm a fan!

Excellent pair of glasses. I have 3 pair, 2 black, 1 wood grain. They fit great, feel great, look great. Durable, quality made. They have a special rubber insert there they touch your skin on your nose and above your ears making them super comfortable. Could wear them all day.

I was really excited to get these, but I was not impressed. For the price I have seen better quality. I love my zeal sunglasses, but the goggles just felt cheap and I could see glue on them as well. I didn't try them on the mountain so that might be different.

Was looking for a new goggle for the season & found this on sale. Goggle looks great , but it's pretty big due to it being able to be worn over glasses. The HD video recording is good, but there's a lot of loud wind noise during playback. Picture taking is pretty decent.

This is the first goggle I have found that truly fits my face! I have a tiny face, and I have a very hard time finding a goggle that fits, yet still allows me to see most of the world around me. The spherical shape of this lens allows me to still have a great view of the outside world, while still finding a frame that fits my face!

These frames are incredibly because they fit both a girl or a guy. I recently bought a pair for my boyfriend, thinking they were more of a guy shape... after he started wearing them, I decided to steal them and wear them out for a day or two. I came to love them! They have that old aviator style with a modern twist! Stunning!

I absolutely love these glasses. They are unlike any I have ever seen before. In addition, all the metal sunglasses that I have owned in the past have been really uncomfortable or hurt my head throughout the day - these do not have this effect! I can wear them all day with no pain or discomfort. In addition I absolutely love the lenses. They make me feel like the world is brighter than ever before!
