I am interested in these sunglasses.
Do they fit a larger headed individual very well?
Currently have some Smith Pivots and they fit
my head well, but looking for a different style.

Thanks

As a, er...."large headed individual", I like the fit of the Ekynox. They have very adjustable arms and nose piece, so the fit can be completely tailored to any one person. I have a pair of Rudy Project Tayo, and the Ekynox fit better. I've used Smith Bazooka Sliders before, and the Ekynox fit much better. Lens changes are also very easy with the Ekynox. I have laser blue and racing red lenses, but if I could only have one it would be racing red as it is great in almost any light situation.

I have been wearing a pair of these for a couple of months and i think they would fit you just fine. I wear Oakleys also. They are good quality and appear to be somewhat more durable than my Oakleys. Although i like my Oakleys also.

Coming from someone who deals with eyeglasses every day (Ok, my staff does most of the hands on stuff, but I'm exposed to it every day) you really need to try them on your own head to know. The temples are pretty straight (they are adjustable to some degree) which makes this frame more of a go/no go than the Kerosenes or Skeey/Skeey Uno frames are.

Locate a dealer near you and check them out. You will find more color choices and can even custom order frame/lens combos via a dealer. Places like Performance (love them) will save you maybe $5, unless you catch a closeout deal and you will have to pay shipping etc.
