Randolph vs AO - these win,
October 10, 2013
By: LongTimeOrvisFan
"Lots of net discussion about differences between AO and Randolph (which is who makes the Sportsman) aviators. Many opine they're the same. They're not. These have a movable silicon nosepiece - the AO's don't. Also, the AO's are spaced a bit tighter. And the width of the glasses are a bit more with these. Lenses are darker on these. And the ear pieces are thicker.
But the important bottom line is that these are notably more comfortable overall. Even though they're glass lenses (and thus heavy) I can wear them for hours without a problem. Big thumbs up.
A small tool and replacement nosepiece is included as well. Very nice touch."

Superior sunglasses,

"My aviator sunglasses are a replacement for a previous pair destroyed by me in a bicycle crash. They are very comfortable and the lenses are large enough to provide great coverage but not over-sized."

Best Sunglasses,
April 20, 2012
By: Hipstan
from Palm Beach, FL
"I bought Serengetti's made by Corning for many years and then they stopped making them. I thought I would never find a pair of truly quality sunglasses again until I found these manufactured by Randolph Engineering. Best pair of sunglasses I have had in a decade. Well worth the money. They are comfortable while being substantial."

Overall too Small,
August 31, 2011
By: NapaVintner
from Napa Valley, CA
"I was so excited to see such a stylish pair of aviators, only to be crushed when they were too small for my face. They may look good on a thin GQ model or my 17 year old son, but at 51 and weighing 225#, these were 3/4 scale on my face. Usually Orvis has great sizing for "mature males", maybe they'll come up with a larger size."
