XPS by Fisherman Eyewear 14OC Polarized Sunglasses
Good Bang for the Buck
These sunglasses with the brown lens are a steal for the price. I needed a pair of sunglasses for use when cloud coverage was present. I will say these performed better than expected. The fit is comfortable and very lightweight. They also have a built in side shields that keeps out peripheral light. Frames have an interesting style and blended color scheme that looks like a fisherman designed them.

I have purchased the item as a replacement for my Rapala Sportsman polarized sunglasses, but they did not live up to the expectations especially in comparison to the Rapala.
The good: lightweight, comfortable fit, good lateral protection.
1. It is not as portrayed in the picture: the color is not brown, but fades from brown at the upper side towards white at the bottom.
2. does not reduce glare as well as it should: driving on a wet road with the sun shining made me squint quite heavily.
I've kept it solely because I need polarized sunglasses to be able to drive in certain condition, but only until I'll find another Rapala.

Not Bad at All
The glasses fit great and the lenses offer great glare reduction and really help your vision. I will say that after wearing the shades only a few times the rubber cover for the nosepiece did come off. A little bit of superglue fixed them right up. After spending over $200 every time I broke or lost a pair of shades, I'll feel much better when something happens to these and I'm only out twenty bucks. Performance and styling are good while it remains to be seen how long they'll last.

Well Worth The Money
The lenses are pretty good quality for a 20 dollar pair of sunglasses. They definitely are comparable to the lenses in large sunglass companies. They don't make you look bugeyed, and they are comfortable enough to wear for many hours at a time. The only improvement I would make is to put a green mirror finish on the lenses. Great buy if you are looking for cheap yet trendy sunglasses. Don't mind abusing these a little.
