Summary:

The Native Eyewear Haskill looks like a basic pair of glasses, but when you look closer, you realize they are oozing with technology.

Functionality ★★★
The Native Eyewear Haskill is the perfect sunglass for chilling at the crag or flying across the country. In short terms, you can do what you want and be who you want when you rock these shades. Our only complaint is that one of the nose pads fell off after about a week of using it which made the nose piece so uncomfortable that I couldn’t wear them anymore.

Design and Aesthetics ★★★
At first glance, the Haskill looks like your average pair of aviator shades, but when you look deeper, you realize that Native has jam packed these glasses with technology. The lenses are designed with their advanced N3 technology which blocks up to four times more infrared light than regular polarized lenses. They also have an adjustable nose pad system so you can fit them perfectly to your face.

Durability ★★
The arms of the Haskill are made out of their proprietary high-performance thermoplastic material called Rhyno-Tuff which is lightweight and durable even in extreme temperatures. The lenses that Native uses are also impact resistant so you don’t have to worry about them breaking if you drop them or smash your face on something.

Value ★★
You would think you would have to pay two to three hundred dollars for a pair of glasses with this much technology, but the Haskill comes in at under $160! Most of Native’s competitors charge almost double that and their glasses can’t compare to the technology in the Haskill. Usually with sunglasses, you get what you pay for, but Native Eyewear has officially broken that trend.
