ZEAL Optics Ellume Challenge
ZEAL set out to put our ellume lenses to the test in our backyard of Boulder, CO. A quick stop on Pearl Street Mall and Chautauqua Park proved to be the perfect sun-drenched testing grounds to demonstrate the color-enhancing clarity and craftsmanship in our plant-based, polarized lenses. Don't take our word for it; see for yourself.

I must say that this is one of the best lenses I've ever had and as a sunglass 'addicted' I've got quite a few from all major brands that you can possibly think and Zeal lenses came right there on top of the list with some of them.
The frame sits very well, really comfortable and light although bear in mind the Zeal Epic does not cover totally the corner of the eyes but does give a good wrap around and I tend to believe is an 'ideal' size for a 5'9 guy but could be a little too big for someone shorter.
The only reason that I did not give 5* is that the transmission of the lenses could have been a bit darker nevertheless a very good and well made sunglass.

What size are these glasses on an average...
What size are these glasses on an average sunglasses scale? Small, small-medium,medium, medium-large large? Thanks
These are a medium fit.
You can try to find out if your nearest 'sunglass hut', or possibly even optician has theses in-stock, to try on? It's worth a call (if you are still looking, of course).
THe name says it all! These are epic! Love the fit and lens!
Got the brown ones,so good!! Lens is perfect for driving/hiking, really reduces the glare, and the frame style is on point.
