Look like a bunch of models on AliExpress for ... $10Oldman wrote: ↑Sun May 12, 2019 3:09 pmhttps://www.forward-wip.eu/en/3-polariz ... asses.html
Anyone tried these?
Anyone who has experience with that new Vivide blue mirror glasses in the Surge?
On their website they don't say anywhere that the back of the lenses are also treated with an anti-reflective processSENDIT! wrote: ↑Mon May 13, 2019 8:05 pmIn my opinion, the Zeiss lenses on the Typhoon model are worth the extra $100. When you put them on next to pretty much anything else, you can really see the difference in clarity, sharpness. The hydrophobic/oleophobic coatings have been really nice. I have to clean these SO much less than anything else I've had
My biggest worry with sunglasses is that they may break upon impact and pieces of it could enter the eye and cause permanent damage.Toby wrote: ↑Wed May 08, 2019 6:54 pmWe should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?
Just like with helmets, wearing sunglasses while kiteboarding seems unfashionable and excuses like “I will lose them”, “They are annoying”, “They are expensive”, “Water droplets on the lens bother me” and so on, seem to always come up.
The use of polarized sunglasses, in general, will help reduce the chances of cataracts, macular degeneration, sunburn on the cornea and the risk of experiencing vision issues like “snow blindness” which can and have happened to kiters before.
Have you tried the Surge?SENDIT! wrote: ↑Mon May 13, 2019 8:05 pmA post similar to this came up sometime last year. I had recently crashed so hard that I broke my last pair of Surf Shades and was looking to replace them. I wanted something with better lenses and decided to give the Lip Typhoons a shot. Long story short, I liked them so much that I contacted them and became a dealer for them. Not only did I like them, I sold everything I got and everyone has raved about them. In my opinion, the Zeiss lenses on the Typhoon model are worth the extra $100. When you put them on next to pretty much anything else, you can really see the difference in clarity, sharpness. The hydrophobic/oleophobic coatings have been really nice. I have to clean these SO much less than anything else I've had, even considering how much abuse they get from me as an instructor. I'm getting a second pair for my house, since I live 1/2 hour away from where I work, and I can kite close to my house.
Now, if you're one of those people that is perfectly satisfied with the $5 safety goggles from Harbor Freight, well, these are NOT the glasses for you. If you wore them, you'd be able to tell the difference in quality instantly. But, the extra $200 you spent will likely bug the crap out of you and ruin the purchase. However, if you're like I am and appreciate quality in sunglasses, I can't recommend them enough.
As a side note, my father has spent most of his adult life owning his own residential construction business and working outside. Due to heredity, environment, or a mix of both, he's been battling macular degeneration for about 10 years. That's certainly made me more vigilant about taking care of my eyes, especially with how much time I sometimes spend outside. Just one more reason why I have no problem spending a little extra on them. Hope this helps.
