Fantastic sunglasses for the price. Flight goggle 58. American optical was one of the original manufacturers of these sunglasses for US airforce in the 50s. They went to Vietnam and outer space. I abused my first pair for a couple of years until a drop broke one of the lenses. Now on my second pair. The glass lenses are thick and clear, resist scratching as expected. The frames are resilient, they are strong with a good balance of stiffness and and ability to strighten them out if you sit on them- countless times- the frames do not appear to work harden and break like cheap metal frames. Fold up nice and flat.
Vayonet style not much confortable. An size of glasses is quite small. For the peice they promise more than it gives
No, these sunglasses are not polarized. Unfortunately AO Eyewear does not make polarized sunglasses.
