Michael's Bio

Fricken love outdoors there is always things to do in any season. Spend a lot of time fishing / camping /hiking in the BWCA area during the non-snowy season. Usually find me ice fishing in the land or 10,000 lakes during the winter season. I'm always looking great durable gear at a great price, which is why I come here to shop.

Only 1 set that is sent are noticably polarized. The orange or yellow and clear lenses are not polarized as good (these were in the old nano packages). The new ones come with sport flex and clear lenses. They said its because these are used in low light levels when there is no less for polarization so they only filter 2-40% UV as opposed to 86-90% uv blockage.

NOTE: only the main set is polarized heavily

Also I recently had to send a pair in for warranty exchange it cost $30 and went great. My frame broke in bitter cold weather. It was an older discontinued pair so so when I filled out the online exchange form I was able to choose one from a list to upgrade to, I was even able to select a new reflex one. It also covered my lenses too since they had scratches in them, so I just sent the entire set in. It took about 2 weeks to get the new ones back (new frame model and new upgraded reflex lenses). Very pleased with this process.

Has anyone got any expereince with these as it compares to the North Face ones that are similar to these. There are two noticible differences and I'm wondering if there is more I should consider:

1. The North Face ones have 2 spines while these have 3 I would think these would be stronger

2. The North Face ones appear to have more of a hook on the top which may hold rope better. My primary use is for a rain tarp.

Thanks
