re: Ribbing sunglasses

whilst at RIB RAID Pwllheli last weekend I shower around our safety sunglasses. Chris ( hugh Jardon ) bought a couple of pairs and below are his comment:-
we also purchased some of the sunglasses and these are just superb, without a shadow of a doubt the best protective sunglasses for ribbing we have seen. wore them all day and eve on the sunday and not the slightest bit of wind in the eye at any speed. This in itself is a huge safety factor. every thing is adjustable so no matter where your nose is, where your ears are or how fat or thin your chops are you can adjust them to get the perfect fit. Also the lens clarity and quality was second to none .


I have attached pictures of the glasses for people to see , if anyone wants any more information please contact me.

The glasses are lightweight 28g and have fully adjustable arms.

They are fully tested safety glasses and sunglasses , 100% uv

They are supplied with a soft protective bag and neck cord.

The lens are easy changeable so you if damage a lens you can buy just a spare lens.
You can also mix and match lens and frame colours.

Do you have different intensity lenses? say for low light or bright sunlight or is it just one lens type?

Are the lenses polarized, i.e. cut down glare from the water surface.

As part of my "discounted helmet deal in pwllheli in exchange for a blast round on my boat for the day" I have agreed to show the glasses on the IOW trip to anyone interested. I have suggested to Colin that if he sends some down then if folks want to buy them there and then they can, as no perfect an opportunity than when out on the water on a trip to test them.

They really need to be seen in the flesh to be appreciated. I have my own ones but you cant have them....I shall be coveting them..

I purchased a helmet for me and debs and one of each of the sunglasses as we could not make our minds up which ones we preferred, so you are welcome to take a look and try them on and see what you think.

I have found you have to dive in damn quick if you're to stand any chance of recovery with Oakleys!

after some extensive water testing in the sink they do not float, but dont sink any quicker than my other plastic glasses

i have some neck ties to go round the back but to be honest they fit so snug i have not been concerned in the slightest that they may fall off me bonce

I bought a couple of pairs too. They were superb on the Sunday blast - really good definition and the adjustable arms meant they could be set to a perfect fit. In the rain, they were like goggles - nothing got through to the eyeballs! Highly recommended and a fair bit cheaper than Oakleys

I don't suppose you do a version that takes prescription inserts like Adidas ski glasses (even better if the same insert fitted) for those of us who are optically deficient!

mmm... ...finger in eye phobia there. Laser eye surgery is preferable - but for the cost of that I could upgrade the rib. Have any of you contact lens wearers ever had problems losing them as sea - especially in a stuff etc. Bad enough without becoming blind too?

We can supply a slight different version, which has the adjustment in the arms same as the other one.
The nose clip is removable and you clip in a prescription lenses hold behind the lens. We also offer a prescription service for these glasses.

The main benefit of these is the prescription lens are protected behind the polycarbonate main lens. So if you damage the lens you not paying for a full prescription just the polycarbonate lens

£15.00 for cheap eye protection is too much, you need a pair or 2 of these!

In your opinion what makes them cheap?
I have seen ones similar to your suggested options for £0.60p.
