Native Eyewear Nano2 Eyewear

DESCRIPTION

Not only did Native give the Nano2 Sunglasses high-quality interchangeable lenses, it built them with a large frame, so you don't feel like you're wearing shades made for a doll. The Nano2 Sunglasses provide all the coverage you need for hiking, biking, or chilling at the lake. Native includes two different lens tints to give you the freedom needed for any lighting conditions from thick forest to an open meadow on a bright blue day.

Strength:

Elegant, versitile, beauty, comfort, protection

Weakness:

Mirrored lenses scratches easily.

A Plus product. Practical in basically all sports activity. Can be used also as safety goggles. Ideal for motorcycle touring!!! At night time you just swap the lenses from sun glasses to clear lenses and hit the road day or night.

Good Lens

Weakness:

Plastic frame that isn't up to the task of even changing lens

Native has really turned out crap with the product. I had Nano 1 and they lasted about 1 year of riding. Had to send them back and they sent me Navo 2 as the replacement. I have had them for one month and while changing lens they snapped in half in my hand. I have been changing lens for some time so I know the process - its the plastic they used on this product now that is like a cheap item in the discount pile.. DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM - YOUR WASTING YOU MONEY.. Further I now have to pay $30 to get them fixed. So now I have over $200 (extra lens $40) invested in these glass and I still have nothing to ride with... Need I say more?

Strength:

Fit, anti-fog,

Weakness:

Durability of lenses is lacking. Nose pad eventually worked loose enough to where I actually lost one. For a polarized lens these are lacking. Customer service is seriously negligent. Called/emailed multiple times with no response. I tried to get in touch with them prior to a deployment and no luck. Suggest buying other than Native if you expect an expedient turn-around on replacements.

Stick with Oakleys or another favorite before giving these a try.

Strength:

Light, comfortable, good optics and excellent glare reduction, don't fog. Reasonably priced.

Weakness:

Some back lighting reflections in certain circumstances

Review is with the gray lenses that come with the slate frames-

Just picked up a pair of these and posting with my initial impressions. I'm a huge sunglass nut as my eyes are sensitive to bright light and glare but these are my 1st pair of polycarbonate glasses. I tried a pair (different brand) a few years ago but the optics were sub par and returned them. The reviews of various glasses here and the reviews of these glasses below compelled me to check em out.

I have a pretty big head, size 7.5 so most glasses don't fit, these are a great fit. They slide on snug but not tight. The bridge feels light as a feather but doesn't budge. The glasses cover well but have a very open feel to them. The optics are very good and glare reduction is excellent. These glasses don't fog on me. Sweat is pouring through my eyebrows, bouncing of my eyelashes and stinging my eyes...no fog!

The only negative I have to report is that there is some back lighting reflection in some conditions. I guess this is because of the open design of the frames that allow all the airflow, sometimes the sun will peek thru from behind you, but even when it does it's not bad . Small price to pay for glasses that don't fog, feel light as a feather, offer an awesome warranty and have great optics with polarized lenses!

Oh and Sunglass City thew in a hard case because Native only included one of those polishing cloth/ soft case ones...thanks SG City!

ok people, here's a follow-up:
some time ago i was riding to work, still sleepy, laptop in the backpack and all, and took a bad spill after bunny hopping. i flew over the bike, tried not to lock my arms so instead of breaking wrists and collar bone i split my chin to the bone and broke 2 teeth.

The Nano 2 i was wearing fell of my face when I hit the ground but didn't get a scratch!

It's just sad to think how much bike stuff i could get for the $$$ on dental work, these root canals and crowns aren't cheap at all

Strength:

Great fit, coverage, polarized(!), very easy to change lenses, don't fog

Weakness:

None, but a little hard to find

Tried on lots of glasses, only a handful had a nose piece that really gripped. Add very tough, polarized grey lenses with excellent coverage and clarity, include very easy to change high contrast yellow lenses, great fog venting, and charge $90 for it all! Easily the best deal around (plus not everyone has them!)! It does seem that most retailers carry the other Native products, so you may have to look around. It is worth it! The first six chili value product!
