  1. 5 out of 5 Randolph Aviators are Awesome

    I had many different brands of Aviator style sunglasses for general use and for use while flying. Without exception, the Randolph Aviator sunglasses are by far the best I’ve ever had! I would recommend these to anyone considering high quality sunglasses.

  2. 5 out of 5 Best of the best!

    I have pair of these from 1980, as well as a similar pair from American Optical, and 2 pairs of aviators from RB; not purchased as fashion items, rather I was in the military, needed good sunglasses, they were available and affordable “back then”. All 4 pair worked, performed, and survived remarkably well; however the RE’s with the bayonet arms are the better of the 4, in my opinion w/r to still Looking good, wonderful lens, and holding up to wear n tear! Definitely the choice to go with !

  3. 5 out of 5 2d pair in 40 years! Simply outstanding!

    Wow! Are these new ones are nice! My original first pair I purchased circa 1980 at the PX @ Ft. Dix, while in the army. They served me well in the sands of the Sinai and Afghanistan, as well as the beaches of NC and Georgia! I sent my old ones in for a service update when I received my new ones to give the original ones a second life! Actually, my 40 year olds held up remarkably well considering what they’ve been through. These are absolutely worth the price, look great, glass is in great condition… I do absolutely love the classic , clean look of the new ones, but appreciate the service and quality of the 40 year old originals. Definitely a pair of classic sunglasses that can, and will, be passed on to a second generation!

  5. 5 out of 5 I absolutely love them

    The polarized glass lenses are a dream!! Besides which, they look great and are super comfortable. I love the oversized lenses (58mm) and how high and secure they sit on the bridge of my nose. I’m super happy with them!!
