    Electric is a company with quality products and what makes them even more great is there customer service. Joel Harris an outstanding employee went above and beyond helping me replace a minor defect more due to wear and tear on these backbone glasses, which I can not live without.

    Great looking glasses! The finish is more subtle than the picture on the website. If you have a wide face (or big head) these will fit great. Phong with the customer service team is top notch. Electric is my go to brand for sunglasses. I've had a few pairs and they last forever. .... [Read more]
