Pirates Love Underpants by Claire Freedman
Pirates Love Underpants by Claire Freedman
SO my little boy loves the "Love Underpants" series and I get to read them to him quite a bit. This book is the last of the 3 (Dinosaurs, Aliens, Pirates) that we bought and the weakest.

Pluses: The illustrations are great and the story is fun

I bought these as my Oakley Fire lenses were scratched and a bit of a mess after 2 years hard wear.

Probably the biggest thing you'll be worrying about is "will these actually fit my Oakley frame?". The answer to this is a resounding Yes. They pop in perfectly and are no harder to fit than original Oakley lenses.

The next thing is these do appear to be polarised which is a plus as Oakley polarised lenses cost quite a bit more than non-polarised.

The lenses are clear however (and here is why they are 4 star not 5), looking through the lens, the world appears bluer than with the original Oakley. My original fire lenses were more brown than blue but… Read more
