    Frame Adjustment

    Temple Adjustment


    Frame Adjustment

    Tighten the Fit
    If your frame feels too wide, begin to bend the frame in small increments. Face the lens towards your chest, and place your thumbs on the edge of where the lens meets the bend in the frame. Firmly but gently, make small pulses to adjust the frame inward. Try them on, and continue to adjust as needed.

    Loosen the Fit
    If the frame feels too tight, again face the lens towards your chest, with your thumbs at the edge of the lens, and pull gently outward in small movements.

    Temple Adjustment

    Loosen the Fit
    After wearing your Gatorz for a few hours, you will notice if the temples are providing a comfortable fit. If they are placing pressure on your head, hold firmly at the base of the temple and pull the end outwards with repetitive pulses. After adjusting both sides, try them on and determine if you need to make any more adjustments. You may need to wear them for several hours to determine if you’ve found the right fit.

    Tighten the Fit
    If the template feel too loose, place your hands as you would for a temple adjustment and pulse the end inwards until you feel you’ve reached the right placement. Try them on and wear them to determine if any further adjustments are needed.


    Raise Glasses Closer to your Face
    If you feel like they’re sliding down too easily, pinch the nosepiece closer together. When making any adjustments to the glasses, we recommend making small changes, rather than big adjustments. This will help you move easily into the right fit without overdoing it.

    Separate Glasses from your Face
    Start by placing the glasses on your face. If they’re sitting too close to your eyes, pull the nosepiece away from the frame. Keep in mind, most Gatorz offer a wrap style fit, so they may take a little getting used to.

    I love this sunglasses

    Little background about myself, Iwork in fire service as driver/operator. I am allowed looking for best pair sunglasses as I can. I rough on my sunglasses. Gatorz have stay up so to the abuse I have put them though. I love their polarized lens , when I’m driving some time I would have to lift up my sunglasses see screen before with my old glasses but with Gatorz Lens I can see screen clearly. That makes it all safer when I’m driving heavy fire engine down the road. I think biggest I love my sunglasses that make right here usa and plus they are local company to where I live. I won’t go back to my old sunglasses from Company the start with a letter O.

    Top notch

    I have 4 or 5 different styles of gatorz but IMO these are the best by far. I love the style, they fit my face perfectly and are amazingly comfortable. Plus they are polarized and work great on the water when I am fishing.

    Right out of the box, these fit the best out of any pair I’ve had. I love my Magnums, but the Specter take it to a new level for me. No adjustment needed whatsoever. My only reason for waiting as long as I did was because I think the OPz lenses are the best offered and was hoping they would offer them for this frame. Which they finally did. Great product.

    Best yet

    I’ve owned numerous pairs of gatorz and while they’ve all been great the fit and feel of the specter is best in my opinion. Will be wearing these as long as they make them.

    The best yet.

    I have worn Gatorz for years and the Specter with Cerakote and OPz lenses takes Gatorz to a whole new level. They fit better, more secure, and more comfortable than my old Magnums and I didn't think it was possible. The Cerakote makes them stay in place and reduces slippage to nil. The OPz polarization is perfect for using electronics especially if they have protection films and or plastic covers, but they still stop glare fantastically. If you want a fishing lens go with the standard polarized, but if you work with gear, these are perfect.

    Like no other

    The metal frame is fantastic, stays cool to touch no matter the weather condition. Finish isn’t bulletproof but only wears at friction points, and not very badly. Lenses are the best I’ve tried. Would definitely recommend, worth every cent. My only desire is that I could easily change the lenses without having to send to the dealer.

    Best GatorZ yet!

    Best pair of glasses I’ve owned hands down. I initially purchased magnum but the Specter are even better, like a wrap around just bulkier and fit my face like a glove!

    Best Gatorz yet, if I could give ten stars I would without hesitation! I've have two pair of Magnums and a pair of Deltas and the Spectre blows them all away. Gatorz has, at least in my opinion, made the perfect pair. Get yourself a pair and see for yourself.
