    Love these glasses so much. I have been wearing Electric glasses since they had the old logo because of how great they are. They are light and the protection against the sun is unbeatable.

    Unfortunately I had a little mishap with these glasses, but no problem because Electric's customer service is awesome. I worked with Phong Nguyen and he took care of my problem right away. Super easy to communicate via email and should have a new pair before spring break! :)

    So classy. These sunglasses are phenomenal! I am a pretty small chick, I needed a style that didn't swamp my face....this style did the trick. Absolutely perfect for any occasion. The Tort color looks bomb on blondes! :) Electric's polarized lenses are life changing, they bring out so many colors our beautiful world offers. These are easily the BEST sunglasses I have ever owned. Also, Electric's customer service is top notch! Phong Nguyen helped me out a great deal. A round of applause for the genuine customer service. I will continue to be a happy Electric customer as long as I live! Thank you, Phong and Electric!!

    I LOVE these sunglasses! The UV protection is great as well as the polarization in the lenses. They are dark enough so people can't see your eyes but not too dark so you can't use them indoors and that's pretty cool when you fall asleep or when your checking things out.
    With all the sun we get in Hawaii these are the pair to buy.

    I had a few mishaps with these glasses. Got a nick on the lens and one of the Electric logos fell out. I sent an inquiry to customer service and Phong Nguyen, with lightning fast speed, replied to my dilemma. He just had me send them back and a week later VIOLA! a new pair appeared on my doorstep!

    Thanks Phong for your help and understanding! Excellent doing business with you!

    This is a top notch company with excellent skills in customer service!
    Tell your friends!

    Aloha,
    Edwin
