Joel Harris helped me out with a new pair of Knoxville's. I get compliments all the time on the polarized colored lens with my current green lens pair, and can't wait to get the blue ones. Joel was super courteous and knew exactly how to help. I'd recommend anyone to Joel and the wonderful service at Electric. Will most definitely shop at Electric for my future sunglass purchases because of people like Joel. He's an asset, and hope he gets recognized in some way. Not to mention, the sunglasses are top notch.

Just pick these bad boys up from my local surf shop, they are amazing. They are light weight, sexy, and protect my eyes from the sun. Thank you so much Electric for yet another awesome pair of sunglasses!

So I just picked up a pair of these today. I'm a pilot so polarized sunglasses won't work for me when I'm flying. These things are amazing. Comfortable fit that doesn't interfere with my headset, lightweight design that doesn't feel like it's weighing my head down, and they are stylish. Most pilot's you see wear aviatiors, and I admit I have a pair myself, but these stand out and I love them.
