Good enough for day to day, but quality control issues.
on 24 February 2013
This was my third pair of these glasses in about 2 years. Not because the others had broken, but because I lost each of them in turn. I had used them every day, and loved their lightness and clarity. They certainly flexed as expected, and even creaked occasionally, but never broke. I found their optical quality as good as any other off the shelf ones I had ever had, some at 5 times the cost, and even a pair of prescription glasses.
Consequently I didn't hesitate to order a replacement pair. Unfortunately I found the hinges very stiff, and within a day one of the arms had snapped off. So having arranged a refund from Amazon I re-ordered another pair. I was quite annoyed to find this new pair had one badly scratched lens. So again contacted Amazon. I must say that they had a replacement set to me by the next morning, which proved to be 100% OK.
If I had not had these quality issues I would probably have rated them 5 star.
