Great set of glasses. I have a fat head and it’s tough to find a pair that fit right and are comfortable. Happy with the purchase.

Best sunglasses I've owned. I have the basic version of the Knoxvilles and these "S" versions are a definite step up. They're a little sportier and more functional than the orginal version. They are the same size and style as the original version, but are a little lighter and have a different arm. My go-to glasses. I barely feel them on my face. They equally look good in a suit or in jeans.

Fit is large, but a classic style. Did not fit my face well, although may look good on others. The DarksideTort color looked good in the pictures, but the matte black contrasting with the polished tortoise looked strange.

I’ve been wanting the dark side swingarms for awhile and I finally pulled the trigger as a birthday present for myself and I’m so happy I did. They are now my favorite pair and I’m not sure what to do with all my other ones that I used to rotate wearing daily.

These are a great new style from Electric. I love the look of the gray tortoise in person. It looks really cool. I've had many compliments on the weekends adventuring and during the work week. I do have a huge head and have worn the Knoxville XL for years. The Nashville XL is not as oversized ans The Nashville XL. The Nashville XL does look smaller on me. These are nice shades and very lightweight.

I got these glasses in the black matte, nice, smooth finish. They have a nice fit. Not loose, but not so tight they are uncomfortable. The shape of the glasses can fit most face shapes. They are also universal. My son and daughter both wear them! If you like a bigger frame, these probably aren't the glasses for you, but if not, these glasses are great! Electric has impressed once again with the Swingarm!

These Electric 'Swingarm' glasses are nice. They are light weight and comfortable. The matte finish is very stylish. The polarized lens makes them perfect for mountain bike riding or skiing this winter.

I have a nice round face that does not fit most sunglasses without looking like the frames are stretching outward and are about to snap. These Knoxville XL are XL. Not XXL but a legitimate XL. The only thing NOT XL about these sunglasses is the price. You definitely get your money's worth with these Electrics. Whether strolling through the Village at Mammoth Mountain after riding all day or sitting in bumper to bumper traffic on the 405 after grinding in the office all day, these are the perfect glasses. Polarized too for all of you that love to fish, spend time on boats, or hang out around lakes and beaches.

Great sunglasses for outdoor activities! The grip on nose and by ears is fabulous! The lens would be better if polarized /more comfortable sun protection Disappointed they do not come with a hard case.

The box that the glasses came in was not in the best shape and there were fingerprints all over the lenses, but once they were cleaned off, the glasses are great. They are lightweight which was main reason for my purchase.

I work in construction and these are great. They fit well and are very comfortable, are also great for outdoors. If you work in construction and or hard working conditions I definitely recommend these shades.

I like the Knoxville XLs A lot and use them for everything. I have a bigger head so they fit very well. I take really good care of these shades and they seem to last me for so long and do not feel cheap to me at all. One of the best quality sunglasses that I have owned.

I got the blue polarized lens with gloss black frames. These shades are sick and let you stick out more than your 9 other friends with the same pair of Ray Bans. These sunglasses also seem to be very well made and have a good weight to them.

Nice glasses, but not XL. I wear a size 8 hat, and I will need to be finding a place that can stretch these out for me. Also, the build quality is not that high. One of the arms already bent once, and they feel a little bit like cheap, swap meet glasses. I wish I would have tried them on before buying, but it's too late to return 'em!

Nice shades. Perfect weight and don't feel cheap. I purchased a pair of Oliver Peoples and the quality wasn't as good as these. I have a large head and these fit the bill. Great for driving!

I have a pretty large head and these glasses fit very well. I have had difficulty finding this style in one that doesn't make me look cross-eyed and these fit the bill perfectly. The transition of the lens from blue to red is very nice as well. I have already had a few people ask me where I got them and what they are. Definitely recommend.

I really like this pair of sunglasses. its a good weight on my face, it doesn't leave any marks on my nose, the quality of lense is high. I would wear these with any of my outfits, it looks good enough to wear with formal dress or at the beach.
