I've been looking for a pair of good quality flip-up glasses for a long time. I found these and I am very happy with the quality. Other brands feel cheap and flimsy, but these are nice and sturdy. My only problem is that the arms are a little short. 145 mm is the standard size. I wish 9Five provided longer replacement temple arms. 150-155 mm would suffice. The arms don't hurt or make the fit uncomfortable, but a little more length would provide the perfect fit for my head. I get compliments on these glasses all the time. And I especially love that I don't have to carry glasses AND shades. I love that I get two in one.
I've wanted a pair of flip-up glasses for years. The only problem was that all of the pairs available seemed cheap and flimsy. These are very sturdy and they seem like they'll be durable and last a long time. I get compliments on these all the time. The only reason I gave four stars and not five is because the arms are a little short for me. I guess the 145 mm is the standard for glasses. I wish they were at least 150 mm, or that 9Five sold arms in larger sizes, that way I could put them on myself. They do fit okay, there's no pain or anything, but a little more length would help someone with a larger head like mine. Also, the shades are dark enough to block sunlight but they're not so dark that your vision would be hindered. Overall, these are great glasses. And I really like the fact that I don't need to have a pair of shades and a pair of clear lenses at all times. Can't beat this two-for-one deal.
I don’t wear precaution but I found these Lanes convenient going in and out from inside to outside and with a flip being comfortable without having to remove them. Difficult to find a true black lens that’s actually polarized. Attractive and well constructed. Arrived within in three days. Im Happy.
I love this frame! I've always looked for flip-up frames, but they never seemed to fit me or they just looked ridiculous. 9five has found a happy median. I love the looks I get when I rock these.
