Rated 5 out of 5 by Moey First pair of Rayban Aviators
I felt like treating myself so I bought this pair of RayBans after much research. This pair feels so luxurious and not flimsy like the traditional thin framed aviators and have a bit of heft to them. Seeing the price of this pair, I was expecting the frame in its entirety to be made of carbon fibre. However it is made from a light matte black plastic (or "resin" as they call it) and is coated with a hair thin layer of carbon fibre. So the carbon fibre provides no function and is purely there for aesthetic reasons. The catch is that when you do wear them, it does look like it is fully made of carbon fibre due to the clever design.The lenses are made of glass with a silver mirror finish on the outside (the gunmetal version) and on the inside it shows the glasses real colour which is a very nice blackish blue and you see the world through a cool blue tint. Since it is made from glass and not plastic or acetate it is on the heavy side of sunglasses. As for the function it is polarized and is very comfortable to look through during the brightest of days and I didn't even have to once. Also they do have some weight to them so you're aware that you're wearing them online say the lite force raybans. The nose bridge doesn't feel uncomfortable or comfortable either but maybe I am saying this because I am more used to the nose bridges on pairs like the wayfairers.These glasses can can absolutely be an everyday pair of sunglasses however do be careful with them since they are not a plastic/acetate sports pair of sunglasses and can bend/shatter if they are manhandled or dropped. Overall these are an amazing pair if you have a bit of extra cash to splurge but if you're on a budget and love the aviator style then get the regular aviator in mirror or polarized since the carbon fibre serves no real function other than to sit there and look pretty.
Rated 5 out of 5 by queenofhearts A classic style
This style is a great alternative to the original Ray-Ban aviator (3025) for those with slightly smaller faces that are overwhelmed by that lens size.
This pair is also extremely light because of the carbon fibre components and looks sharp with the contrasting gunmetal frame and gold-brown mirrored lens. I am extremely pleased with this style.
