Simple style, high-tech performance.
Laid-back looks and casual, refined style underplay the Kaenon Stinson Polarized Sunglasses' high-performance materials and superior optical quality. Kaenon's proprietary SR-91 lenses offer crystal clear vision and serious impact-resistance, and they're polarized to eliminate glare so you can see more clearly when you're on open water or at the beach. The lightweight and flexible TR-90 frame is durable, yet rests lightly and comfortably on your face. Hypoallergenic Variflex nose pads prevent your shades from slipping when you're getting active, and a protective hard case secures them when night time rolls around.

I picked these Stinsons up as a more casual pair of sunglasses in comparison to my Burnets. I had a pair of Burnets with copper lenses but replaced them with the grey lens. I am definitely happy to be looking through the copper lens again (I got the blonde tortoise frame) but Kaenon lenses overall are among the best regardless of if it is in grey or copper. I golf in these and tend to find reading greens easier in the copper lens.
I opted for the Stinson over the Montecito as I was worried about the Montecito being a bit large for my small face and saw that the Stinson was slightly smaller. After trying on both in person, I realized I would have been fine with either pair as there is not as much of a size difference between the two.
If you are looking for a pair of casual frames with the best lenses, the Stinson is your ticket.
