We had a chance to try out the Brazil Matt Tortoise sunglasses with polarized lens from XX2i recently and wanted to share our take on this classic design.
XX2i offers some really great glasses at a great value. They are miles a head of the cheap gas station sunglasses you buy, but are paying the huge premium for some of the big names in the optics industry. With all the same features including polarized lenses, UVA and UVB blocking, color popping view, and a really nice semi-hard case, these are a really good value for the price.
In the photo, you can see how the lens really add a dramatic effect to the view. The leaves look greener, and colors pop.
The glasses are a medium fit. I have a bigger head, and like a bigger set of sunglasses. These were a little right behind the ears for me. The fixed nose piece was very comfortable, and they stayed in place, even with sunscreen and sweat on the nose.
The lens are really great on these glasses if you like that sort of faux reality. Hiking seems to come life, behind these lens. They also look great with the tortoise color frames and blue mirror lenses.
XX2i offers a no question asked warranty. Seriously, scratch them, sit on them, just pay shipping and handling to get a replacement!
Additionally, they offer 365 days to try them out. Again, seriously take a year to try them in all conditions if you dont like them send them back for a full refund minus shipping and handling.
These are on sale right now for $34.99, really good value for that price.
