I have been using these since last August and only just got around to writing this review!
First, I LOVE the look of these. They make me feel like the modern retro-inspired young adult I've always aspired to be. I am a huge fan of tortoiseshell and I always go for amber lenses when I can. I also don't buy sunglasses unless they are polarized, so I was very happy to find some that were both polarized AND stylish. The shape is unique, like a round wayfairer. And the bamboo arms are very clever.
What I find challenging about these is the glare that comes in from behind when the sun is at certain angles. It can be a bit jarring for a flash of light to bounce back into your line of vision when you are wearing sunglasses! Sometimes I can see the reflection of my eye from the inside, as well. I also worked a rather active job in August, and between the heat and the activity, I did find them to slip a bit. But I would say I have a medium-to-small sized head so that could be why.
I still wear them because I love how they look and when they don't glare, they are great. I suppose I am wondering if there is a way to remedy the glare problem, if maybe my head is just a weird shape and creates the glare, or if it's just a compromise we make for style.
I'm so happy SOLO exists and is doing what they do. Thank you for your social and environmental consciousness!
