Good value and quality, but you can see under the lenses!

Great to see Suncloud back on the scene. I used to buy these in the '80s when they were a slightly-less-expensive alternative with Vaurnets and had the pink-tinted glass lenses. Snagged these in black for just $25. Nice and lightweight, good optics. Like the rubber on the temple tips and nose pads and the storage bag. The fit is generally good. On my 7-5/8 hat size head, the flexible temples fit snugly without pinching and there is good clearance for my eyes behind the lenses. My biggest issue with these is the lens height. While the visible width of the lens is 64mm and offers "wrap-around" protection, many users will find that the lenses are unusually short. I measured the usable height to be only 34mm. In practice, this means that I can easily see under the bottom of these sunglasses. Not as bad as light leaking in the top, but annoying nonetheless. From a style perspective, there is also a little "notch" cut off on the bottom inside corner of the frame under the nose pads. Not a deal-killer, but a style feature worth pointing out. I prefer the lens shape on the Sundcloud Tailgate, which I also purchased recently.
