Summary of Services:
This is a relatively confusing one. The prices are all over the place, for no apparent reason. The frames they show are very similar to other retailers and range from cheaper, to significantly more expensive.
They do have some unique frames that will undoubtedly attract some buyers tired of seeing the same designs at various online retailers, but the shipping costs of $14 will scare away the majority of interest.
Polarized lenses are available for $46 which isn't a bad price. They're not available at all at most of the low-cost online retailers.
I bought a pair from them to test them out and they weren't cheap. Overall, I like the product I got, but would probably look elsewhere in the future if there wasn't a shipping deal available.
