Great every day sunglasses

I have owned 5 pair of polarized Bolle's over the past 15 years. The "Snake" line of Bolle's (Coachwhip, Mamba, Piraja) made in France are my favorite glasses of any I have owned. Overall, I have liked the Coachwhip's the best as the lenses are a little bigger than the Mamba's and they don't have the rubber pads like the Piraja's. While these sunglasses (made in Mauritius) do not appear to be as high quality as my previous Coachwhip's made in France, they are nice for the price of [$]. I prefer the fit and light weight of these sunglasses over my much more expensive Costa Del Mar Fathom's with 580 copper glass lenses. The polarized TNS lens are nice for bright conditions, but my favorite Bolle lens is polarized sandstone for most conditions because of the higher contrast. The Piraja's fit a little tighter than the Coachwhip's and the rubber pads at the nose and ears keep them in place better for sports, etc. Just be aware that the rubber pads of the Piraja's will deteriorate over time. At this point I can't say how durable the Coachwhip's made I Mauritius will be, but you'll be hard pressed to find a more comfortable pair of sunglasses.

good buy!

I bought a pair of Coachwhip Bolle sun glasses 12 years ago. These glasses are the only ones I wear. Just this year I noticed the polarization was breaking down on the lens. ( White circles in lens material). I loved the comfort so much I wanted to buy them again. It took a while but I found them at this site. I have my old glasses back but these are even better because they are new. I hope this pair will last 12 years like my last pair.

Great Sunglasses

I had a pair for 10 years until I accidentally ran them over with the car. Amazingly the frames survived, but the lenses cracked. These sunglasses look good, are very well made, lightweight & work well in all types of weather & activities. I believe Bolle' has discontinued the Coachwhip design. Campmor was the only website where I was able to find an available pair. I bought 2 pair, since I probably will not be able to replace them in the future.

Same pair for 10+ years, can't go wrong

I've been buying this pair for over a decade now. It started when I used the Coachwhip model when I was learning how to sail.

I have a wide head and many wrap around sunglasses don't fit me very well, except for these.

It's unfortunate that Bolle has stopped making this model, that's why I always keep 2 pairs. It'll be a sad day when I can't find anymore pairs online.

Sporty, lightweight and nice tint...

Typical Bolle quality in lens, nice optical quality, good even coatings and adequate tint for beach, boating or general use. Haven't had em long enough to determine durability but like with any glasses, careful cleaning is the key to long life so refrain from the t-shirt wipe at all costs =) I'm happy with these in terms of size, fit and weight, great for travel too.

bought one pair then reordered another

Bought one pair and was so pleased with them, I ordered another pair. The fit is perfect. The design allows shade on the sides of the temples, too. I have sensitive eyes and always need to wear sunglasses when outside. This pair does the job and prevents me from having to squint. I would purchase these again.

Great and Lightweight

I just keep on buying Bolle's from Campmor because they are durable, comfortable and they look good, and Campmor sells them at a great price. They are almost impossible to wear out or break; unfortunately I left my last great pair at a restaurant. This is my first pair of Coachwhips and I like them a ton.

Nice and dark

The main thing I was looking for was shades that long eyelashes wouldn't brush against. These qualify. Plus they look nice, fit my narrow face, and I love how dark the tint is. Great for driving.
Only complaint is somehow a small scratch appeared who knows how.

Great Sunglasses

These are great sunglasses. They really fit me well as I have a smaller face. Most sunglasses are too big but these work fine for me. I had a pair and lost them and was SO HAPPY that I found these, an exact replacement!

Basic, but a Little Too Lightweight

I am 5'7" and female. I use these glasses for hiking, driving, outdoors, functions, etc. They are just a little too lightweight for me, feels like they could get squished in a very bad way easily. I like the grunt pair I have better.

Negative Reviews:

Not what Bolle used to be

Unknown to me, Bolle sunglasses were previously made in France, but are now made in Mauritius. These new glasses are junk. They feel like junk, the frames don't open and close like they used to, and the temple legs don't align with the main frame how they used to. The slightest flex of the glasses and you can feel the lens cracking/ loose in their fit within the frames. Poor quality, junk. I will be lucky to get a year out of these glasses unlike my last pair that lasted seven years. The polarization also appears to be of poor quality or not there. I can't even say I notice it. Fit and style is an exact match. Lens are good and clear upon purchase.

Cheaply Constructed - Not Bolle Quality

The Coachwhip model of Bolle sunglassess feel extremely cheaply made. I replaced my Campmor-purchased Bolle "Boa" sunglasses with what I hoped to be a similar model (The Boa had been discontinued). The Coachwhip ain't it. They are quite smallish, with narrow lenses, leaving my eyebrows exposed. There is no rubber on the nose bridge so the frames, while very lightweight, still slide down the nose as a result. I'm constantly having to push them back up my nose. These feel particularly flimsily made, and are more like cheap drugstore sunglasses. Not worth the price, and certainly not worthy of the Bolle logo.

Looks can be deceiving

I have 2 previous pairs of Bolle which I purchased at another retailer...loved them! These don't even touch my old ones. The pics look great, but the quality is not. Not worth the money.

Poor fit

Very uncomfortable

Neutral Reviews:

OK pair of glasses

Really like Bolle products but my favorite pair of glasses I had for years were stolen. I have been trying to find a look and perform - alike replacement since this model is no longer made. These are OK; they are lighter/ cheaper for more money. Would never pay full price. Buy sunclouds instead.

I would not buy again

Not good for outdoor use where you eyes need the most protection. Adequate for driving in a car.

High Quality sunglasses but lens height

I liked the overall quality but needed more lens coverage and preferred a frame with gloss finish.
