If you want a pair of shades that will last forever, never break (& if they do, you can get a new pair)look amazing (I get asked on the street where I got them from), Gatorz are the wave of the future.

Strengths:    Extremely well built. Most glasses only have a single hinge, these have dual hinges on each arm!

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
Very sharp shades that are built like a tank. Frames can be adjusted to suit. Good warranty program ensures long term value for money.

Strengths:    Built to last. Lens replacement service and lifetime warranty.

Weaknesses:    No so far

Bottom Line:   
Other glasses would fog up and break easy. Straight out of the box you know these mean business and I had no fogging issues with them. Love the fact I can replace the lenses should they get damaged and the lifetime warranty protects my investment. A must have!

Strengths:    Destruction resistant Aircraft Aluminum frames.
Exceptional tight fit. Sun, wind, and dirt wont get in.
Lifetime Rebuild warranty.


Weaknesses:    Everybody wants to buy these glasses right off of my face.

Bottom Line:   
Gatorz makes the best sunglasses all around. These are great for biking, hiking, and boarding, as well as driving around town.

These glasses are extremely durable due to their Aircraft Aluminum construction. I have dropped them many times on the rocks and they did not get damaged.

I got a great deal at www.ATGsunglasses.com and they have a larger selection of Gatorz than most other stores.

Date Reviewed: August 18, 2000

Strengths:    Gatorz are the strongest sunglasses I have ever used. The lenses are awesome just like the design. They look and feel like they will outlast anyone alive today! Replaced my Oakleys with these and proud of it.

Weaknesses:    None at all.

Bottom Line:   
Well read their rebuild agreement. Lets say two years after I purchased them, I am riding down a hill and they fall off. My buddy behind me runs them over and they get bent out of whack....well Gatorz says "bring them in or send them in with $40 and get your NEW PAIR!!!!!"

Cannot beat that anywhere. PERIOD. The best aluminum sunglasses and first ones at that.

Date Reviewed: May 31, 1998

Bottom Line:   


The Billets don't fit too well and the grip is weak. They may be strong, but they don't fit as well as Oakley Zeros or M Frames. I presume that Pro M's fit better but I don't know. Bottom line: these are crap and a bit more money should be invested into a pair of Oakleys.

Date Reviewed: March 5, 1998

Bottom Line:   


I have used just about all the major brand of sunglasses and I must say that Gatorz Billets are the best. They are
incredibly strong and built for durability. The Billets fit like a glove and are quite comfortable. The company backs
their product with great customer service. These are not disposeable eyewear. You can send the glasses back for
new lenses at a minimal charge.
