    back to bone stock.
    Let me start by saying I HATE shopping for sunglasses. I have a huge head. Haha.

    well back when I was poorer I’d buy one pair of sunglasses and wear them for everything. Bow hunts, fishing, driving, etc. my old Arnettes got destroyed wearing them at work. I got smacked by wet concrete. I was gonna toss them. But I love them. I decided to see if anyone sells lenses for my discontinued frame. Voila! Revant Optics. $35 seemed like small risk.
    The lenses fit well enough. Left side was a tight fit. But they clicked in.

    but I am stoked. New life for my best fitting pair. I’m kayak fishing with them when I prefer a plastic lens. Fishing heavy cover sometimes sends a tungsten sinker screaming my way. Nice to have plastic lenses in the rare instance I take a shot to the face. I think the new lenses are clearer than OEM. Zero distortion.

    if you have old favorites sunglasses, refurbishing the lens may be an option.

    I've used Revant optics for prescription lens for my ballistic glasses (airsoft). They sent me two pair by mistake and told me to just keep the extra pair..
