Cheap Ugly Garbage!

So far the worst item BB has every carried! These are hideous! Oversized cheap plastic "birth control glasses "(BCGs as the military calls them) in an even uglier case. This is a situation where the idea trumps the actual product. BAD BB!

Cheap Plastic, Breaks Easily
Purchased

Wore these maybe 5 times before the frame broke at the nose making them useless. If they were better quality they would be awesome, I love that they fold. Spend more more get the Persols that is all!

Really liked them...

Broke after only a few wears. Nothing even happened to them, just taking them off. Looked good and enjoyed them while they lasted but would never buy them.

since thy're now in 2 pieces it's hard to :(. tried supergluing but that defeated the folding novelty. would buy another pair but not at 25$.

Adorable but cheap

I was SO excited to get these in my box...the case is a perfect size for a small bag and the compactness is ingenious, however, the first day I took them out to wear them, the stem snapped in half. The sad thing is that they looked REALLY good on my face!

Cool idea, bad design
Purchased

These sunglasses broke within two weeks of having them. The hinge along the nose snapped when folding the glasses open to wear them. It's unfortunate that this product was not more durable, because it's a great idea.
The case that came with it was a little bit thicker than a deck of cards, and easily fits in a purse or side pocket.

Broken Promises

So, my first pair of these broke as I was removing them from the box - seriously, first time. I called BirchBox and they sent a replacement very quickly. The second pair has a home in my work travel bag. They survived the first trip, so the jury is still out on the quality - the idea is great though.

Bad pair at the least

Came and one screw that was holding an earpiece on was not set it was able to fall out when upside down. great product idea wish my pair was functional. The sunglasses quality was good enough.

Looks cool but breaks easily

I was pumped when I got my box and found them inside. They liked cool and were a little tight on my face but I persevered and wore them driving from Houston, Texas to Bangor, Maine. They became very uncomfortable to wear after 30 minutes and finally broke. Do not buy.
