Liked but didn't love. Kept sliding down my face!
I got these glasses in my unlimited order in time for my vacation in Austin, and had high hopes for keeping them throughout Spring. They were nice enough but the fit was just awful and they kept sliding down my nose constantly. I'm not sure if the issue was a) the abnormally large plastic piece that goes over your ears just not being designed to catch your ears well enough, b) the weight of the glasses themselves constantly pulling them down, or c) the simple fact that renting sunglasses might not really be the best idea. (I mean, do they get checked out and reformed between renters? I would hope so!) If they had been more traditional plastic glasses (these have thick plastic ear pieces but thin metal arms) I might've taken them to the eyeglass store and gotten them adjusted, but with this particular pair it just seamed too risky. I'm not sure that I'll rent sunglasses from RTR again.
