Suncloud.. my favorites...
on August 25, 2008
When my old sunglasses finally wore out after 20 years, I decided to replace them with another pair of the same brand. I was pleased to find such a good price.
They are not as dark as my older pair, color suffers less distortion. My only complaint would be that there is some glare from the frame, my older pair had an opaque frame that did not allow light through. These glasses "wrap around" more than my older pair having better visibility on the side.
Update... these glasses did not last as long as the earlier pairs... the polarization began to bubble and wrinkled along the edges... looks like cheap diy auto sun film ;-)
I contacted Suncloud, thinking they might have had a bad batch and would want to know the material did not hold up....
I was told to ship them to Suncloud, insured and tracking, and their people will look at them and decide if they are covered by the warranty and then the will issue a new pair at a discount price.
Doing the math, I find there is no financial advantage and there is the need to replace them if I mail them anyway.
With their discount under the warranty, and the cost of shipping, I will pay the same I might pay for a new pair on sale without the nuisance of shipping and waiting.
I'm looking at other brands now, if Sunclouds are not going to hold up, there is no reason to purchase another pair.... though, so far the cheaper glasses recommended to me by friends, do not have the polarization my Sunclouds did...
