Well with the low price the lens can't really compare with the big brands out there..

It jus stated to be polarized but I yet to test out in broad daylight..

I find that the fit and design wasn't too bad and you get to choose the team that you like...

Germany, Brasil, Italy etc.. Not sure what are the countries all together..

not that i am against cheap sunglasses.

i have read somewhere that wearing sunglasses that have poor uv protection is actually worse than not wearing any.

sunglasses that are just "black plastic" shades do not block out uv.
in actual fact, it may cause the iris of the eye to enlarge (due to the darker environment around the eyes), which then let in more uv than if you were not wearing any.

Me keep my sunglass on when I swing...

Haven't seen it flying off yet... Maybe my swing too slow to do that...

Think you should try it! May help you to keep the head still thru impact though...

Jus my personal opinion..

Yea, I just went for LASIK and my doc did advise me against sunglasses w/o proper UV protection.. Not saying that cheap = bad UV.. but it's generally the case..

Just my 2 cents worth.. your eyes are priceless.. Now my near perfect vision comes with a steep price... Sad
