First time owner of Gatorz. I went with the Delta model. Overall I would say they are finest pair of sunglasses I've owned. I would buy again over other brands I have (Ray Ban, Blue Otter). They required only minor adjustment to get the best fit. The inclusion of adjustment instructions was GREAT! I'm stoked that Gatorz are engineered of the superb material and made in the USA. For shooting or driving or boating, I will reach for the Gatorz.
The quality of the glasses are amazing as usual from gators. I was disappointed with how they fit me and honestly haven’t even really worn them as I don’t like how they fit and feel on my face.
This isn’t a quality control issue just wish I would have ordered a different model.
You’re quality and workmanship are second to none.
I wanted good looking, casual style sunglasses that also gave me protection. In addition to regularly spending time on the range, I work in the explosive field where eye protection is a must. I have had Oakleys, Smiths, Wiley X, Costas, Maui Jims, and Ray Bans. These are the most well-built, over built glasses I have owned. The lenses are fantastic, the frame is unbelievably strong, the hinges are bulletproof. My only critique would possibly be adding rubber to the end of the stems to help hold them in place a little better. That’s a nitpick though.
Great product. Tough as **** and stylish in a not common way (you don't see everyone wearing these). These are bar none the best glasses I've ever bought, and one of the best purchases I've made in years.
Great fit and great value ! Always support companies that support our veterans. First heard about gatorz while working at the future seal foundation. All the guys (and gals) seem to enjoy the glasses and multiple frames to fit all face shapes!
Only complaint I have found is the metal frames scratch easily.
Purchased a pair of Delta, and couldn't be happier. Easily the highest quality shades I have ever come across. I have been waring Oakley gas cans for the better part of 10 years. The optic quality of the lens is equal if not better than them in my opinion. Haven't worn another pair since purchasing these.
I like the style of the glasses and the metal frame is great. Easy to make small adjustments for the perfect fit. The only dislike is the inside of the lense is not smooth to touch, so when I clean them my cleaning cloth snags and makes it hard to clean.
