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.

Pros: I have had Randolph sunglasses before and have always liked them. They provide excellent glare protection and are extremely durable. Cons: This particular style of Randolph Aviator Sunglasses has very curved "arms" which, while the design keeps them from slipping off, tends to make them stick out on the sides of the head interfering with a typical general aviation headset. I am going to take them to my eye doctor's office to see if they can be professionally adjusted, lest I break them trying to do it myself.

How do I size these--52mm vs 58mm?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 58mm lenses are about 2.283 inches horizontally across each lenses. 52mm will be about 2.04 inches across so the 52mm will be a slightly smaller lens. I use a 58mm because I have my eye clinic build my lenses to include bi-focal and put them in the 58mm frame which gives me a little more viewing area than a 52mm would. I hope this helps.
is the case included?
Angelina K on Jul 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the case is included.
The title says: "gray/green" (refering to the color of the lenses) - well, is it one shade or may I pick one of either? -because I can't find any place to specifically choose one of these colors. Thanks.
Barak K on May 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The lenses are a gray/green color, this is not an option for either a gray or green lens.
