These sunglasses are constructed using Native's Rhyno-Tuff coinjected polymer frames to keep things super light but still super strong. Combined with Cusinol temple and nose pads the glasses fit well and stay on. The Eddyline glasses feature N3 polarized lenses that block up to four times more infrared light than regular polarized lenses and provide UV protection up to 400nm, meaning they block 99-100% of damaging UV rays.
The lenses significantly reduce blue light and selectively filtering UV, thereby delivering better contrast and sharper, crisper vision. They also pass Z87.1 government testing standards for safety glasses. This makes them perfect for a wide range of sports as well as work activities.
I've been wearing the Eddyline sunglasses with Desert Tort frames and brown lens since February and have used them on the ski slope, careening around on my mountain bike, on hikes and backpacking trips, and just as an everyday pair of sunglasses. With pale blue eyes that are sensitive to sunlight, I live in sunglasses so I have given this pair of Native sunglasses quite a workout.
If it wasn't for how they bring the world into quiet focus I generally would not know I had them on, since they weigh just 1 ounce. The contrast while wearing them is very crisp and they do a great job of protecting my eyes. The cushinol pads do a great job of lightly holding them fast to my head and I also appreciate the cam-action hinges which make putting them on a breeze. All in all, just a great pair of every day, every sport sunglasses that also look fabulous.
