The Native Itso is one of the newer members of the Native performance eyewear line up. Just about every product from the company comes with a polarized lens and the Native Itso is no exception. Our gunmetal colored frame came with a silver reflex polarized lens along with a Sportflex option which we used for our testing.
The Native Itso fit well. Not too big or too small, just right. Native lines the interior of the temple with a lightly rubberized material for nice grip. These shades definitely stayed in place despite being one of the heavier in our test. The Native nose bridge also contributed to the comfort of the frame.
The Sportflex lens is the second lightest tint offered by Native. It worked well in our early evening rides through the hills.
Weight: 1 oz
Swapping the lenses was relatively easy although a little disconcerting. You really have to work at getting those lenses dislodged, an exercise that requires a fair amount of frame twisting. To Native’s credit, the Itso’s seemed no worse for wear once we swapped out the reflex lenses for Sportflex. The included hard case includes a convenient storage slot for your extra lenses, btw. Soft pouch also included.
Ventilation was also good and we noticed no fogging on our rides.
If you like the interchangeable lens option, the Native Itso is your best bet.
