  • Brown frames feature polarized brown lenses to eliminate glare and produce the truest transmission of natural colors
  • The SunCloud King polarized sunglasses come with a soft pouch that doubles as a lens cloth

SunCloud King Polarized Sunglasses - 2011 Closeoutis rated5.0out of5by2.
Rated5out of5byfromGreat valueThese glasses have done exactly the things you would want a pair like this to do. Look sporty, protect your eyes, lightweight, and as an added bonus I haven't had the normal wear or pressure point soreness I sometimes experience on my temples.

Rated5out of5byfromNice sunglasses, incredible value.I used Wileys before (they failed miserably, quickly), and currently also use Native Eyewear and Tifozi - those are nice, but SunCloud beats all of them on a few fronts, at once. First, they fit my large face the best of any glasses I ever had (on XXL sized head), and stay there rather comfortably. Medium and smaller head sizes definitely should not try. Optical quality of glass is great, perfectly suitable for driving under many lighting conditions - they also seem not to attract dirt and grease and are easy to clean. Frame allows for an excellent side field of view without much limiting, unlike many other thick-framed glasses. Also, relatively slim frame factor fits into standard overhead sunglass compartment in a mid-2000's Honda - again, unlike any other glasses. What's important, too, whole thing seems to be made from some kind of armored material - already had them dropped multiple times onto asphalt, concrete, stone-covered trails with no traces of damage in a few months of nearly daily use. Nitpicks: outer edges may get fogged when put them on right after getting into car... solution - open window or turn on ventilation for a minute. Also, relatively slim factor may let in some high sun during outdoor activities - anyway, I use them mostly for driving, where it doesn't matter. Also, the look is a little bit too aggressive, to my taste - then again, whatever... they work. All in all, for me at this price it was an absolute steal - for the price of 1.5 pairs of disposable drugstore glasses, I got a 95% performer... buying second pair.
