Any good or bad input on polarized electric sunglasses?

Have had a few pairs. Wasnt on the polarized bandwagon at the time. Just like all the other ~$100 sunglasses on the market. Quality of the frames and lenses were with expectation for my abuse.

If you care about getting comments for cool sunglasses, shop elsewhere. Styles are relatively conservative and with current trends, IMO.

I think Tomo is with firewire for more than just money. He helped them developed the LFT tech. I think he sincerely believes in the tech -deforest

I think the USA "made in america" board builders "marketing" gimmick falls more inline with a cult than the firewire following -deforest

Vuarnet.

Gucci were pretty great quality as well in the 90s-early 2000s. Rock solid frames and great lenses. If you can find a pair...

I already bought them and replaced a pair of ray ban I gifted to brother in law. I did not like rb because scratched easy had to baby but so far like electric lens and darkness and durability etc . Only complaint was bag instead of storage case but had extra case.

+1, didn't like ray bans. just low quality against the competition for slightly higher price.

Raen is another good brand. They've been having some online sales recently. Managed to snag a pair of polarized for ~$100.

Costa seems to be the top for best sun protection. Nearly every fishing guide seems to wear them to attest to the quality.

I don't wear sunglasses any more.

It's like wearing gloves when you work out.

Or a condom when you bone.


We all know what we hate.

We just don't know what we want.

They hurt at first.

But then you get used to it.
