    Great Shades for the price.

      Great Shades for the price.

      They don't suck

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The black has a nice matte finish that looks good and holds onto your face decently well. I got the reddish orangish lenses and they filter the light pretty well but could be mirrored a little more - like you can still see your eyes through the lens. These have been my primary pair of sunglasses and so far the lenses have picked up only the smallest of scratches from how many times they've been (mis)handled.

      Amazing

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      good looking and great lense quality nothing to complaint

      Great Glasses!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Great fit and a super cool look, love the color scheme on the matte torte and the style is awesome. Medium frame size so not massive but not tiny either. Overall quality Sunglasses.

      Love these guys

        These glasses are a classic style and look great on most faces, the Combat Green is awesome. They're comfortable and don't pinch behind my ear. Great buy if you're looking for sunglasses.

        Pretty cool...

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: Runs small

        These are pretty nice they were simply too small for my face. If you have a medium/large size face and head I would definitely go with the Knoxville XL's. Thanks to backcountry.com the exchange process was painless and I got some Knoxville XL's which I think look cooler.



        I originally got the red frame/plasma lense variation and thought it would look like the picture below from "npb4813900". The lenses seemed more like green/red than purple/pink but that could just be the different lighting situations.

        Love the Knoxville

        The best perfect polarized sunglasses out there, lightweight and can take a beating. Even if you like to take'em for a swim like i do.

        Love the Knoxville

        Sick glasses

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I really like these. I got them in the tortoise color and they look good. They also stay on your head well when you're moving around and being active which is always a plus.

        Sick glasses

        Great Glasses

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These are great durable and good looking glasses. The only downsides is they arm hinges get pretty lose which is annoying after awhile but I would totally recommend them. Still wear them today been at least a year and a half so they are great overall.

        Light and Stylish

          This is now the 2nd pair of these bad boys that I have purchased and love the way they fit medium to large faces. If you like the classic rayban style that is coming back and have a larger face these are Perfect. The lenses are light and pretty durable considering mine usually end up at the bottom of my bag with loose change. Just don't loose them!

          These sunglasses are money

            It was worth paying a little bit more for these sunglasses. The frame is a great fit, and the UV-protection lenses are super clear. The perfect blend between style and functionality.

            Green/Green

            Very distinctive, I get lots of compliments and requests to try them on.

            Green/Green

            sincerest form of flattery

              While the frame profile may look suspiciously like the Oakley Holbrook (ie: nearly identical), there are still a few very subtle design differences (like the Knoxville being made in Italy), and a few more eye-popping colorway/lens options to ensure that the Knoxville is another bitching piece more than worth adding to your collection. Besides, who cares about which design came first? This timeless and rad throwback design deserves to be owned more than once.

                Best Answer

                They're not exceptionally wide or flexible, but I have wider temples and prefer wide sunnies, and these fit just fine. Unless you've got some kind of gorilla melon, they should fit you nicely.

                how red are the red ones

                Here's another photo of the Red Plasma frames. They are kind of a translucent-ish Red.
