Prime Shades!

Hey all,

I know some of you are very aware of the sunglasses my friend has made, Prime Shades, and most of you probably don't. Referring to the ones who are loving them(Keith, Tommy), this ones for you.


I told him you were liking them, so he let me make a discount code for you guys.

Use code "DefenderSource" for 25% off all orders.


PRIME Shades

Cheers,
ZG

Zack, tell your buddy I'd be happy to send this link to my daughter who works at Marie Claire NYC. Her boss is Nina Garcia so maybe something good could happen. Let me know.

Dude, they're great shades. Spending the week at the beach and convinced everyone here they need a pair. Lost a set in the surf today and didn't even sweat it, I brought my back up pair (another set of Primes) and will order another set or two when I get home.

The polarized see in water just as good as my old Orvis glass lensed Acklins, but won't break if you drop them (which is what happened to the Acklins). They are every bit as good a lens as Rayban wayfarers polarized, but the hinges are where it's at. They stick to my head (except when a wave breaks on you and you have your hands on a 7 year old to keep them from going under). For the money, it's tough not to at least try them, which is why I bought them when they had a sale via Instagram. Thanks for the hook-up, Zack.

Glad you're enjoying them! You can't go wrong at that price, and the owners are all huge car enthusiasts, so you're supporting the right people.

Nice. Will have to check these out. The wife's lenses on her Knockarounds that she uses on the jet ski have bubbled after 2 years.

No minuses, but you can cut the glare of water to see underneath.

Bad: LCD screens use polarizers so at the wrong angles your phone looks to have a dark/black screen. Same thing with gas pumps.

And if you've had your iphone screen replaced with a cheapy, you won't even be able to see it in one orientation until you rotate it 90 degrees - Huge pain.

Didn't know Britpart made iphone replacement screens, but apparently they do.

Also makes it trippy to drive the RR or fly as both have heated windshields!

Ordered yesterday... Couldn't resist throwing a 'Merica set in as well!

I suppose if you can find an accurate replacement. They are designed to be above average sunglasses for a good price.
