Familiarity: I've used it several times

I really wanted to love these sunglasses when I found them at a local gear shop (did not buy from Backcountry, but want this community to be aware of the issues with this product). Looking at them, they are a great riff on a basic shape and I loved the matte finish, polarized lenses and minimalist design. They look and feel great on, and they're biodegradable?? How cool is that? Unfortunately, I am about to send my pair back for their second repair. The first break was less than 2 weeks from purchase and the arm snapped right off behind the hinge when I was putting them on. This week I noticed the frame cracked on the nose side of the lens and when it snaps, the lens will pop out. I have been very gentle with them and they have been in a case or on my face the whole 2 months I've owned them. I have to give Zeal credit for having a great repair policy and waiving the fee for me the first time, but I wouldn't recommend these frames to you unless you get 2 pairs--one to use until they break and then another one to wear while you wait the 2 weeks it takes to have them repaired. Sorry Zeal, but I think this material needs some more testing before you charge $170 for it!!

I love these pants! the kelp color is beautiful and goes with everything. They flatter my curves really well which is not always the case with skinny jeans. I'm 5'5, 122 pounds and the size 27 fits me perfectly. There is enough room in the seat for my butt and they don't fall down when I bend over, but they also stay fitted through the leg and don't stretch out quickly. The fabric is very soft but also feels sturdy and I think they will take wear well. I highly recommend these pants as a staple, I am considering getting them in black too because I love them so much. totally worth $78!

These sunglasses are the bees knees. They cover my entire peripheral vision (they're HUGE) and are just dark enough without being too dark. they stay up when pushed up on top of my head and have very sturdy frames. Only drawback is they're too big for most cases, but I find that I never want to take them off! I never go anywhere without them. If you're not looking for something that covers half of your face, these glasses may not be for you...if you are, don't hesitate, they're perfect : )
