FEATURES of the Native Silencer Polarized Sunglasses
Single Snap-Back 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

See through clothing with these!!!OK, not really. But they're still amazing sunglasses. I have a medium profile, and they grip securely and comfortably. I'm not worried about losing them while hiking, bouldering, driving, or propping them on my head to look cool in public. The frames are vented, so I've rarely had trouble with them fogging up. Switching lenses takes some getting used to (I was initially worried I'd snap the lenses in half) but is easier with practice. Visibility is ridiculously clear. I haven't had an issue with lens damage (one small scratch during a basketball game when they hit the pavement), but I use both the cloth bag *and* the reinforced carrying case.

Great shades for the smallish face...I was super psyched to get these new shades. Unfortunately for me, I didn't try them on first. They're a great looking set of eye protection; the frames are great, lenses perfect, and the padding soft and comfy. Then, I put them on my face. I'm not a super big guy, but apparently I have a big face. These shades are small...wearing them for a bit, I definitely felt a good amount of pressure behind the ears. If you have a smaller build or a narrower face, these would be awesome. Ah well...it's prolly a good rule to try before you buy. As aways, Moosejaw customer service is great and I was able to get a different set that fit better. Holla!

Way comfortable and breathableThese are by far the best sunglasses I've ever had. They fit like a glove, block the sun entirely, breathe awesome and all the while I can't even tell I have glasses on. I bike and play volleyball and disc golf, among other physical activities, and these things never fall off my face...and believe me I DIG for that volleyball. They never fog up, and they stay on my head when I take them off my face, even while I'm active. They are definitely built more for people with smaller heads so for those of you who have oversized melons, move on to a different pair of natives. But trust me...stick with natives and you won't be disappointed.

Best I've WornI currently own the Silencers and previously owned a pair of Dashes. I think that hands down, Natives are the best sport sunglasses I've ever owned. They're extremely lightweight, durable, and comfortable. The interchangable lenses make them a breeze to clean, the polarized lenses are great for reducing glare, and the fact that they come with four sets of lenses makes them great for just about any lighting condition. I never had a problem with the lenses popping out on their own, which was a concern when I bought them. Needless to say, when I finally beat this pair up enough, I'll probably be buying Natives again to replace them.

Buy them more than once.I've had three pairs of these over the last 4 years or so. I've skied/climbed/fished/flown Alaska in them and they have been awesome. The polarized lenses are nice for spot fishing. They protected my precious little retina's and other various eye parts while deployed to the Middle East. The polarized lenses are nice for spot fishing. I lost a lens at the beach and I just bought a new pair and then an ammo box fell on those and it was new pair time. I totally don't like having spent the money, but I like the glasses and the glasses have been good to me. If you buy them, you'll be glad you did.

I absolutely loved my Silencers that I bought back in 2005- But the new model is literal shit-I used to love these guys, in fact I used silencers for six years now, which is why i'm pissed by their pathetic customer service. I've been on the phone with them for a month, e-mailing them for three weeks, and sent them my shades two weeks ago. Why? The new "sport flex" lenses don't fit the frames, and they don't have a problem with that. Today they called me and informed me there "was nothing they could do" about my problem. They have no problem selling these shades at full price, knowing that they're defective and giving you the finger if you say anything about it. This has been my worst customer service experience. My advice: avoid native indefinitely, they'll treat you like shit-

If you need more than one lense and a great warranty with great looks, these are it.Okay, I have owned Natives before. I have owned the Lowriders, but they were too big, so i decided to get the silencers. First off, they are very clear, and once you put them on you don't want to take them off. The interchange lenses change in seconds without any effort. The lenses that come with the glasses are amazing too. I use all of them on a regular basis. I use these glasses for mountain biking, kayaking, and driving. The interchangeable lenses help with the biking. Everything else, polorized lenses all the way! Also, the fit is amazing, they wrap around your head and stay put. The warranty that Native has is for real. They will replace your glasses for 20 bucks! No matter what!

Nice shades, shady company!!!I don't normally like to write bad reviews of products since I spend so much time researching anything I buy, but this was something I didn't foresee. However much I liked these sunglasses I could not overlook the shady workings of Native. Upon delivery of my Silencers, I inspected them and discovered they were missing the rubber nose piece. I went online to find Native's Customer service number, and it is unlisted. I found an email and sent them a request for the missing piece. The automatically returned email informed me that that I had contacted them in their busy season and they would return me inquiry in 3-4 business days. Upon further inspection of the website I found out that I
