I've owned 3 pairs of CDI's in the past they've always come with a set of clear lenses until this set, that was a let down. In the bottom left corner "polarized" is etched into the lenses. They Etched the ANSI stuff over the frame so you can't see it but this "polarized" is constantly in your peripheral vision reminding you of the item to intentionally purchased and likely don't need a reminder of blocking your vision.
I've put my old frames through hell one got ran over by an uparmored HMMWV and didn't break the rubber got pitted but I wore them for 3 more months before replacing them.
I love the ESS CDI sunglasses and have been wearing them since I was in the military from 2008-12. I have since left the military but still wear the ESS CID sunglasses. They have easy interchangable lenses; different color lenses, and very durable frames (got run over by car and only lenses broke; frame stayed in one piece); lost a pair too, but have since purchased a 2nd pair to keep in my car and one for every-day use. I highly recommend.

But they're actually WAY too small, and a strange shape to boot. The arms strongly curve instead of being straight, as for someone with a very small head. The nosepiece is very awkward as well, only contacting my nose in one place (which happens to be right at the spot where you pinch it to slow down a nosebleed, making it throb while wearing them) and riding high. It's actually kind of painful to wear them for more than a minute or so at a time; I can't imagine they would fit anyone bigger, even though their website claims it's a universal size.
So I had to return them, which is a shame because the lens quality is great. Although they say it only transmits 9% of light, it's not too dark for moderately low-light situations, and of course it's easy to swap out lenses. There are other similar ones available (like Native,...
