The Hard Top Polarized Sunglasses by Native are cool. Real cool. These Native sunglasses are better than driving a hardtop convertible through a busy highway. I imagine wearing these Native sport sunglasses would be like running as fast as a car could drive. These aerodynamic Native frames feature a superior venting system and a gripping technology that doesn’t pinch that pretty face of yours. Nobody likes it when someone pinches your face. These Native sunglasses are lightweight and durable with Rhyno-Tuff technology to give you the right amount of give and stability with none of the wimpy stuff. In elementary school people used to call me wimpy, I’ll show them, someday.
DECENT FEATURES of the Native Hard Top Polarized Sunglasses
Interchangeable Lens System
Rhyno-Tuff Air Frames
Venting System: Exhaust vents are incorporated into the design framework to enhance airflow, and virtually eliminate fog and condensation, while strategically placed hybrid vents and side vents (available on select models) keep frames snugger on your face without compromising fit. This unique design feature is the only system available that allows maximum ventilation while blocking extraneous incoming light.
Cushinol: Cushinol nose pads ensure a soft feel and custom fit, regardless of nose shape or size, and Cushinol temple boots create a non-slip grip to keep sunglasses in place during athletic activity
Cam-Action Hinges: This patented feature allows the temple to quickly lock into position
Mastoid Temple Grip: This proprietary design feature ensures the temple ends hug the mastoid bone (behind your ears), allowing for a secure and comfortable fit
Anti-Ocular Intrusion System: This revolutionary system is designed to prevent your lenses from dangerously shooting toward your eyes in the event of an impact
Optic Gear Kit and Sport Flex Included

Let too much light in on top... otherwise awesome.I love everything about these sunglasses... except the sun coming in over the top of the frames. Since that's kind of a big deal with sunglasses, I had to rate them "good not great". The lenses are wonderful on my eyes, the frames are oh so comfortable on my head, and they style looks more fashionable than I anticipated it would. If only they were a little bigger on top. Because they're so awesome otherwise, I am not going to fool around with returning them for different Native's because I have a feeling most Native's have this shape. Regardless, they're the best sunglasses I've ever owned. The first expensive pair I've ever bought myself since I'm prone to losing them.

Great glassesI'm a longtime Native owner. I swear by the brand, which has an incredible lifetime warranty. I used the warranty once when I owned a different model. The temple's rubber boot came off and I received a new pair of similar glasses.,,,,The Hardtop is my favorite model, and was my first pair without the bottom rim. I used them driving and biking. I think I used the replacement lenses only twice, but I liked that they were available, and they were much easier to change than the lenses on the models with full frames. The gray polarized lenses had very little color distortion and really cut down on glare.

I would try another brand, too many negatives for the money.I have to say, I expected a lot more for 135 - They dont stay put on your head like glasses with adjustable ear parts - the brow piece keeps sweat from your eyes, but restricts vision upwards when climbing - the lenses are NOT that easy to get in and out, and after doing so a few times, the plastic wears and they fit loose - the hinges feel cheap and make the glasses fit a bit sloppy try adjusting your glasses 5 times in 2 minutes flying down a hill on your mountainbike. on the other hand, the lenses are sweet and the look is cool, but for 135, my old RudyProject glasses were way better

Everyone needs a pair of these things!I bought my boyfriend a pair of Native sunglasses for Valentine's Day. He loves them! I guess it was one of those classic I-bought-you-what-I-want sort-of deals, so shortly thereafter, I went out to pick up a pair of "hers."
I recently learned, that at the sweet age of 43, I need cataract surgery!! My eyes are burning on a regular basis from glare and sunlight. Bright sunny days kill me, but even cloudy days hurt. I have been using all of my assorted lens and pretending like I'm Bono's mistress. I love them, and the relief to my poor eyes is amazing! I was so afraid to interchange the lens, thinking that I would break them, but they are virtually indestructable! The lenses pop

Glasses are good, but could be made stronger and less scratch resistant somehowSir/Ma'am, I am currently in the military on a mission in Kosovo. In December I went home for two weeks and while in Washington/Dulles Airport I purchased a pair of your Native sunglasses for $130.00 which is the most I have ever paid for sunglasses. But because of the lifetime guarantee I felt that it would be worth it as my mission in Kosovo sometimes becomes quite active with demonstrations and large crowds throwing rocks and bullets at times. However, two weeks after I returned to my mission, the plastic pin broke holding the temples and I had to return it to the factory which is not too easy seeing my location. Your company did fix the glasses free of cost, however, the return sh

Lie to your spouse, by the SunglassesThis is my first pair of, as my wife calls them, "adult sunglasses." I purchased said pair to wear while training this summer. So far, they have been all that I could have hoped for, and more. Leading me to ask the relatively silly question, why didn't I lie to my wife about my new found sense of responsibility before this?
I wore them last week on a 12 mile training run in Florida and they stayed glued to my face the entire time. It could have been the salty paste that was oozing out of my pores (it was stupid hot), but I like to think it was the rubber nose grips. They have been great on bike rides as well, and the interchangeable lenses are great for the trail and road rides in

These glasses are worth a look, if not more!This year I gave rebirth to my love for mountain biking, and as this quest has began, I have started collecting items that I decided would make my biking experience that much more enjoyable. As I was riding with some along dirt tracks kicking up bits and pieces of dirt, stones and twigs, I was getting hit in the face with my riding partners debris, as I'm sure they were pelted with my debris. This prompted me to start looking for a good pair of all sport glasses. Not just for riding, but for my days running roads or trails, or fishing, or snow boarding, or fishing. The sales man at MooseJaw promptly led me to the display of Native vision wear. The first thing that caught my attention

Great sunglasses!!! BUT, make sure they fit your face (duh).I bought my Hardtops (gunmetal/brown) about 3 months ago and have been completely satisfied. They exceeded all my expectation. I've been a bit careless with them, but they have survived unscathed and performed flawlessly under a wide variety of conditions. I highly recommend them, but you need to get out and try them on before you buy. If you can see out over the bridge of your nose, you will have some problems with glare, as sunlight can reflect off your eyes onto the back of the lenses. So, find a local dealer, go try them on, and then come back to Moosejaw and get them, because you cannot get a better deal anywhere else (same or better price, free shipping, no sales tax, and insane reward
