Do you have a big head? If so, what kind of sunglasses have you found that fit well? I have a big head and I have problems finding sunglasses that dont push against the temples, making them uncomfortable..thanks for any help.

Costa Del Mar Fluid or Performance Vector.Both are great for real big heads. The Fluids are a little bigger, but cost about five times as much as the Vectors.The Vectors have a set of clear lenses.If a baseball cap looks like a beanie on your head give these a try.

I'm a big head as well and after tiring of buying and breaking cheap sunglasses I actually tried on a few higher end pairs yesterday. Both M-Frames and Straight Jackets fit my fat temples well. Actually about every oakley I tried fit better than anything else I had tried. I tried everything they had in stock at performance and nothing fit well. It's looking more and more like Oakleys, but I have a hard time justifying the cost. I'm planning on trying out our local Rudy dealer to see how they do. Any fatheads like rudy's?

My head is on the big-ish side, 2 recommendations: Rudy Project Kerosene's or Briko Sprinters. Both have interchangeable lenses, both hold the lenses at the top and center so there's no frame at the bottom of the lens. Very cool feature as it lets whatever sweat gets on the lenses just roll right off. Rudy's have a bigger selection of lenses, and are more adjustable, while the Briko's are far lighter and the lenses sit further away from your face (less sweat splatter). Plus you get the bug-eye thing going with the Briko's.
What about small heads?Ben S

Rudy Project is kind enough to list their sunglasses
recommendations for small faces:

and large faces:

I (large face) have the Kerosene and I'm happy with it.
The lenses don't scratch my cheeks unlike the Oakleys,
and the price is much lower. The lenses are not as good
as Oakleys, but for the lower price it's a good deal.
