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.

Cerakote Rose Gold STARK

I absolutely love them. No issues. I’m only Butthurt that you guys re-released the mini ammo right after I purchased them. Super sad.

Phenomenal eyewear.

These are just what I needed for outdoor use for fishing, boating and general use. Clear and crisp lenses that don’t fog up. A great product!

I love these glasses. Works great in the desert sunlight. I have honestly never heard of this brand until a co worker told me ablut them. So I bought three pair.

Too small

Great experience overall Unfortunately glasses were to small for me even trying to adjust to fit which was not an issue but just looked to small on me even though I like the glasses look and design very much, hopefully you guys can make a larger frame to fit big head guys like my self lol thank you

Love these! Best outdoor/shooting glasses

I just got my Starks, green mirror lenses, and these things are fantastic! Stylish enough to wear around town, tough enough to use on the range while training and teaching classes. Extremely comfortable out the box, even MORE comfortable after molding them to your face. Don’t bother looking at other expensive type of shooting glasses (Oakley, gargoyle etc), just go with the best- Gatorz. You won’t be disappointed.

Heavy duty for active lifestyle

I work out hard quite a lot. Not to mention chasing down two toddlers. So far, these glasses have been excellent - not only staying strong during play times and workouts but not falling off my face! Very happy. If only the skyhooks came out 4 days before!

Support of my country is a major principle by which I try to live, so being able to buy a product from my country makes me proud. Stark version is durable, allows good peripheral vision and its polarized. I think my eyes are more sensitive to the sun than other peoples' eyes, so I was hoping the shading protection would have been a bit more intense which is the reason for marking off one star.

Awesome, but…

These are great shades. I was looking for a good aviator style with a bit more robustness. They don’t fit on top of my head too well when not in use, though.

My New Favorite

These glasses are badass. Style, fit, construction are all perfect. Shipping was quick and flawless. If you are on the fence about these, just buy them. People will instantly wish they were you, not even joking.
