I have a pair of Ray Band Folding Wayfarers and these fall on the opposite side of the scale. I know not to expect Ray Ban quality, but the nicest thing about these shades was the holder that came with them. That being said, they do a decent job in a pinch. The style is a bit outdated for my liking.

Cool shades

These are great shades. They filter light well and are comfortable. I love the folding part. It minimizes space used and makes them easier to carry in my pocket. The only downside is the lense shape is too big for my face--they rub my cheeks. I'd recommend for people with different face shapes. For me unfortunately they will only be a backup pair kept in my glove box.

I liked the novelty of this item, but literally the first time I was removing them from the box, the screw on the temple fell out and into the grass I was standing in at the time. Not a particularly positive experience from the get-go.

Let me start off by saying that I wear prescription lenses, so my use of non-Rx lenses is highly limited. That being said, I was nonetheless intrigued by these. I liked the idea of folding sunglasses, I liked the style, but the nose hinge stuck out like a sore thumb. I don't know if I could wear these out in public.

Not great. But great deal.

This product is fine. I've worn them a few times. I have better quality sunglasses, but the package is nice and good to just keep in the glove box of my car.

Like the design and they fit well over my prescription glasses thought not designed for it

Cool idea, but the girls around me laughed and said there were ugly. So I won't be wearing them again
