Folding Sunglasses

Not a bad concept, but these are not my style. The best part might be the case...

Nope

Shape of the sunglasses look terrible with the shape of my face. The lenses aren't dark enough to block light and also make my eyes look strange. I'll stick with my $10 wayfarers.

Not overly impressed

These didn't make me overly excited when I saw them in the box, and I wondered how flimsy they would be. The connector across the bridge of your nose is awfully weak and is the first part to bend when you aren't touching the sunglasses.

Just okay

The quality is just okay, but that is to be expected at this price point. However, the glasses themselves are somewhat large, so they will not be flattering on smaller faces.

a great concept

the concept behind these sunglasses is quite a good one, also the case is a nice touch, but the quality does not seem like they will last very long also, i have the brown color and they seem a tad big and slightly girly. They also maybe a little bit small fitting for some but I don't have this problem.

Coulda Been a Contenda

I love the box with magnetic clasp. Sadly, though, my sunglasses were missing the screw that holds the side to the lenses. Even worse was that my own repair kit's screws didn't fit. Bah!

Eh.

Well, they fold up pretty slim... But that's about the only positive thing I can say. The lenses are a bit too big and cartoony for me, and the frame looks like walmart quality plastic. Pass.

Fine until they broke

These were handy to keep in the car for when I needed them. I wear glasses and these were easy to throw over my specs instead of fishing out my prescription shades when I was driving. They worked fine until one of the ear pieces snapped off.

Not a great item.

Not very pleased with these. Not sure if mine just weren't as sturdy but they broke after a couple days of use. Also they seemed a bit small for my head, but I think I just have a large one.

Genius.

If you go camping, backpacking, travel a lot or hate to carry big bags, then these sunglasses are for you. They are compact and stylish at the same time.
