Why we don't sell polarized sunglasses
Many sunglasses today are polarized, meaning they use an optical filter to reduce glare. While this is fine for fishing or driving, it's a bad idea for pilots. That's because many cockpit instruments and glass panels have polarized faces, and polarized sunglasses will render these unreadable. In addition, the iPad screen will be blacked out in portrait orientation when wearing polarized sunglasses. Sporty's sells a wide variety of high quality sunglasses that do an excellent job of reducing glare--but without polarization.

I've been waeing them for over 50 years.
The same great sunglasses I was issued in the USAF. When something works, you stick with it. (But, they are getting a tad expensive.)

Pros: Comfortable, no eye strain, quick to remove and put on. Cons: None These are the best sun glasses I have ever owned. I give them top rating. However, I cannot rate them for durability or reliability after only two weeks.

Pros: I PURCHASED THESE GLASSES FOR MY SON WHO IS A PROFESSIONAL PILOT.THEY WERE NOT QUIET WHAT HE WANTED. SO RATHER THAN RETURN I KEPT THE GLASSES FOR MYSELF. THEY WEAR EXTEMELY WELL, GREAT FIT, AND THERE IS NO GLARE, OR STRAIN ON MY EYES.I WOULD TELL ANYONE THAT IS CONSIDERING SUNGLASSES, BUY A PAIR OF THESE GLASSES. THE PRICE AND QUALITY ARE WELL WORTH IT. Cons: NONE VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER.

Pros: I like the shape of these glasses. They truly attracts attention wherever you go. The neutral gray lenses are just the right tint for those sunny days. Cons: The lenses don't seem to have the clearity as the new Serengeti glasses I just bought. Also, the arms digs into your ears a little causing pain after a while of wearing them. Overall I would say these are good sunglasses; just don't expect the BEST! I also hear Randolph is developing a new pair of aviators.

Pros: Clarity of the lens is great, with minimal color distortion with the grey lens. Very easy to put on when riding my motorcycle with a helmet on. Lightweight and does not put uncomfortable pressure on my nose or ears. Look very good while wearing and I get frequent compliments. Cons: Not the best for active outdoor use where physical motion can allow the glasses to fall off because they don't grip as snuggly as standard earpeice type grips. I love these glasses. This is my second pair, but only because I ran over my first pair with my motorcycle. Not only are they great in the airplane, but when I ride with my helmet on the bayonett ear pieces slide right in the helmet and over my ears easily. I recommend them to anyone who wants a quality pair of very comfortable glasses.
