i have a big head, these work for me

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

very retro chic, i dunno they are glasses, they fit good, tint is great, and i love em. not much else to say.

Nice Tints

    Great shades. High quality that you expect from VZ. Made in Italy. Great lenses that work well in most lighting.

    Pair numero dos!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I just love these shades! Lost my last pair :( so had to go and get me a new color! The size is just right for my liking. Now if my lady would just quit taking them from me so I can actually wear them..

    So 90'S

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I used to rock the Oakley FrogSkins back in the late 90's. I went back to these from wrap around sun glasses and there great. Compared to the Frogskins, they are a little heaver, but much better quality.

    Straight Diesel

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Fit my big head

    I have 3 pairs of these with one at the bottom of the lake and my brother also has 3 pairs. We have some of the originals, the spaceglaze, and the mindglo editions. These things are built to last and are straight diesel. Wanna look pitted on the lake, at the track, or at a black tie event? Then don these bad boys and your fingers will get stanky. As the great George Washington once said,

    Straight Diesel

    Wow...just....YES!!!

    This is amazing

    Where are these made?

    Made in Italy

    Good Enough for Zack Morris!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Zack Morris doesn't leave home without these shades. Perfect for checking out the morning surf and the occasional long-butt in Malibu! The shades are the perfect size for hiding your eyes from hang-overs and checking out the babes.

    Not for me

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large

    Thanks to the awesome staff (Trevor) at Backcountry, I was able to re-route my package just before it was shipped so I could have my sunglasses for my adventure. Unfortunately, the sunglasses were way too big for my face, I'm a petite woman and I do have a pretty round face but the sunglasses I think are made more for a man's head. They seem like great sunglasses though, very durable and great colors, just not for me. Thanks anyway Backcountry!

    Fits my fat head!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    Got the glazed/purple ones ... lens colour is fantastic ... similar to the rayban green/brown ... makes everything brighter but not a strain on your eyes.



    The size if them is perfect for me ... I have a large head, tend to fit a Smith XL helmet and XXL helmets for DH biking do fits my face very well.



    They stay put on my nose bridge too unlike some previous oakleys I've owned and since I got them 1/2 off it was awesome!

    Like Candy Apples for your Eye Holes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Even though the sun is a 92 million miles away from the earth, she's a bright little number. Protect your eye holes with the dark lenses of the Elmore! With a more affordable price than most glasses that look this trendy, you won't feel so bad when you drop them off a cliff climbing or lose them in the backcountry.



    And they make you look goooood.



    They are a bit on the bigger size - so if you have a larger noggin like myself - they'll fit amazingly. If you have a smaller shape to your dome - these glasses may be a bit big!

    AWESOME

      I like it a lot, perfect match for me, it hard for me to find big, cool sunglasses, but this one make the job!

      The Purps

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      Got the FROSTBYTE LIMITED EDITION Black Purple Pow Pow colorway. For someone who's obsessed with purple these glasses fit me perfectly! Has a bigger and sleek square design. Overall the glasses have a pretty strong build as well.

      Wide Frames!

        Great fit! I have a wider head and these are great! Some sunglasses will have over sized lenses but still have a narrow frame and will crush my temples. These fit great!

        I Love this.....Goooooood quality...

          Looks Good on Ya.

          These have a Very large frame, so I would recommend them for people who have a larger head. I prefer larger sunglasses, and people compliment these bad boys all the time. They are really comfortable I have the Battlestations with the Gold VZ Logo on the siding which really makes them pop. So far I'm satisfied with the quality and I have even dropped them several times from about 5 feet to the concrete ground. Like!

          Looks Good on Ya.

          I Like A Lot!!! But...

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
          • Fit: True to size

          I meant to order the Fulton's. Had both of these in my cart and deleted the wrong one. My face is medium to small and theses are just too big.



          That being said these glasses are awesome! It's crossed my mind to just keep them cause they look fantastic, feel pretty good and yeah make me feel stunner status. But I'm thinking for me the Fulton's are a better choice. Expecting the same like for those, but they will fit my face better.



          If you have a larger face, I would highly recommend these. If you're smaller to medium face, I'm thinking the Fulton's are the better option.

          We outfitted our entire wedding party in VZ shades the boys were pumped to get these Elmores in the Battlestations Black/Gold Glo colorway. They fit great on almost anyone and the mirrored lenses are perfect.
