Caxman offers two different kinds of sunglasses: w/polarized lenses, which filter out glare from reflective surfaces and blue light blocking lenses, which filter out harmful blue light, which can cause eye strain, fatigue, and increase your risk for macular degeneration. Both kinds feature full protection against harmful UV rays.

Each pair of Caxman sunglasses comes in a semi-hard polyurethane leather case with the logo on the front. The back of the case is soft and malleable, and it closes with a simple snap button. However, the front of the case has a hard shell to protect your sunglasses and the interior is lined with a soft felt. You’ll also receive a microfiber drawstring bag in which you can store them to further protect against scratches or damage. The nice thing about the case is that the front of it is crushproof and very durable. I also like that you can use the soft satchel as a cleaning cloth to clean the lenses if they get dirt or fingerprints on them.

Both of these sunglasses use the same basic wayfarer style shape and the frames are made from durable polycarbonate plastic. The arms of the sunglasses are straight with a slight inward curvature. Since the arms don’t curve down around the back of your ear, it relies on side clamping force to stay in place. You’ll also notice that they come pre-installed with translucent side shields on both sides to protect against peripheral glare, wind, or debris though these are detachable. Both frames come in several color choices combined with different lens color and tint options.

The arm length of the glasses is 139 mm or about 5.5 inches. They have a sport wavy exterior design and rubber padding along the last 2.5 inches or so at the temple to provide traction and grip to the sides of your head. Marked on the inside of the arm you’ll find the other dimensions such as the 55mm lens width and 17mm nose bridge width. The TAC polarized lenses are about 2-1/8” wide and 1-3/8”tall. They are UV400 rated and provide 100% protection against harmful UVA & UVB rays while improving contrast and reducing glare. The fixed bridge width of the glasses is about ½” and not adjustable.

One thing to note about the side shields is that they are not transparent, so while they do cut down on side glare, they could occlude your peripheral vision. If you need to remove them, simply grasp the frame’s arm with one hand and pull back on the shield with your other hand then pull straight down, as they attach with a simple slide-hook. Removing and re-installing them is quick and easy, leaving you with very typical and normal looking sunglasses. They are super light, weighing only about 22 grams with the shields and 18 grams without. The shields themselves are made of a surprisingly thick plastic, with a semi-translucence that filters light that passes through them. Note that when you close the arms, the shield will stick out about an extra ¼” from the frames.

The polarized lenses will provided darkening as they reduce glare from horizontal surfaces; this makes them great for very sunny days when the sunlight is harsh and where there are a lot of reflections off flat surfaces like a lake or the ocean. However, you’ll notice that polarized lenses often make it difficult to view screens on electronic devices, distorting their colors or occluding them completely. That’s where blue light blocking lenses shine. Since they aren’t polarized, you’ll still be able to see your device’s screens clearly, but without the blue light that digital screens emit, which can cause eye strain, fatigue, and retinal damage. These are also UV400 rated against UVA and UVB rays, but won’t provide the same level of darkening as polarized lenses, as they have a yellow tint to them. These lenses are instead coated with an anti-reflective film, to cut down on internal reflections in order to reduce glare. This also made them great for driving on overcast days and night driving, though the straight back arm style wasn’t ideal when wearing a tight fitting baseball cap.

Overall, I've been very pleased with the fit, comfort, and performance of the sunglasses for their respective purposes.
