      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.

        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.

                  I bought these as a replacement for my 70's era version of these glasses when wrestling with the kids got a bit too rough, surviving the jungle to end their days in the den. They are still superior glasses. Glare cutting, color neutral and fashion insensitive. Not cheap, but worth it.

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

                  I wear these driving, and when I'm working outdoors.

                  I wore them last friday on a job for the first time. They cut down on glare from the sun and the snow covered ground. They made a 13 hour day that much easier on my eyes. I like the idea of the glass lenses as, they should scratch less.

                  The pair I received have a sharp screw on one of the temple pieces so I'm not 100% sold on USA quality control. Also, as the frames are sort of flat, in some circumstances, I was getting reflections inside the lenses from things behind or to my side. Not the end of the world but not 5 stars either.

                    easy to clean, people ask where I got them from, next pair I might try the bigger lense.
