Great for pool-party season!

I have a pair of Initium Aviators that I have owned for probably 9 years; they are impeccable. BUT, would i dare drag them through the Vegas Wet-Republic/Rexab scene? Never. Now THESE are the perfect balance; compact, a little bit awkward in the fit, but considering the circumstances where i plan to where them, i doubt anyone will notice, and anyone who does is not going to call me on it. Carrying case and fold-over size is easy fit for board shorts too. Only reason I am not planning on purchasing is I am not planning on losing them; but, ya never know... It's Vegas haha

cheap
Sampled

Granted this only cost $25 but i would much rather they charge $50 and spend a little more on quality.....they feel like cheap plastic. Good idea, just bad execution.

Neat Idea
Sampled

When my finacee took these out of the packaging one of the screws had already fallen out causing one of the ear pieces to fall off. We screwed it back together but not a good first impression! They were also way to small for his face, they are actually tight on me, a girl! So he cant wear them so I took them and now wear them once in a while. I like how they fold up and can just be thrown in my purse (in the box of course). The color of the frame and lenses are nice too.

SHADES

I will say although these glasses are compact, every time i go to unfold them i find myself leaving my finger print on the lens. No cleaning cloth and not even POLAROID...

Sits low
Sampled

The folding aspect of the glasses is totally cool and makes it easy to carry around, but the glasses sit very, very low on your nose. The lenses sat on my cheeks (I've got big cheeks and deep set eyes). A friend tried them on and they sat really low on her as well.

Pretty cool package. like that it folds so that it is less likely to break, especially with the case.

awesome!

my husband received these sunglasses in his box this month.. at first he thought they fit a little funny where the sunglasses rest on the nose but once he realized he was able to fold them up and put his case in his shirt pocket and never lose them he was SOLD!! very stylish and very convenient! overall--he was very happy with this product!

Broke on 2nd wearing
Sampled

I thought these were great but they broke on my 2nd time putting them on. I have worn glasses for my entire life so I am good about keeping them in good condition but the arm broke off simply removing them from my head. Bummed.
