    Comments about U.S. Military Issue Sunglasses - Pilot 52mm:

    These glasses are described for men that wear medium to large clothing. My husband is average-sized and wears medium to large clothing and these glasses clamped his head. He offered them to a pilot friend who has a very slim build and facial features and they were also like a vice on his head. We are very disappointed the glasses did not work and spent almost $22 for shipping in the purchase and return process. Would be nice if there could be an actual photo of the glasses instead of an illustration on the Duluth website.

        Top quality optics and way better frame design than the big name brand, this is a no brainer.

            I use these every day they are real confortable and fit nice.
            They are a bit tight on the sides.

              Received my first pair in the military in 1962. Found them to be the most comfortable and right size. Have purchased several pair since then.

                My original sunglasses were USAF issue and I do not like any others near as well. This is my second one from Duluth Trading.

                I love these glasses, clarity from the durable "glass" lenses is great, frames are very sturdy and strong, straight bows slip into a sled or cycle helmet easily.

                    This style of sun glasses is hard to find - couldn't even find them at the military exchange on base. Other online business wanted much more for them. I've worn this style for the past 25 years - these are the real deal.
