i-Design Aviator Sunglasses

I received the i-Design ID1004 ultra light rectangular aviator sunglasses through a promotion. 

Product Info:
  • Tr90 Nylon Lenses for uv protection
  • Lightweight
  • 58mm frame shatterproof stainless steel
  • Synthetic rubber earpieces and nose-pads
  • Screwless design 

The sunglasses come in a very nice sunglass case and bag to help protect the sunglasses. The box is great for storing the sunglasses. The box is magnetized to keep it shut. The bag is a draw-string style bag. Also, it comes with a cleaning cloth for the lenses.

The lenses is shaped and styled like the aviator sunglasses. The sunglasses are a black darkened look that is non-polarized. The lenses help protect the eyes from uva, uvb, uvc, and harmful blue-lights. These lenses are not scratch proof.

The rubber on the nose and earpieces are comfortable and fit well.
The screwless designed is new to me. It's a nice idea, but you can hear the stainless steel edges rubbing together. To me, it's an annoying sound, not as bad as nails on a chalkboard. This screwless design could cause skin or small fingers to get pinched between the folds. It can also catch and pull on hair. The stainless edges on the arms is rounded, but the edges on the frames where the bend or fold is with the arms is a bit rough or sharp.

The stainless steel frames are very thin. They may be shatterproof, but they can still bend. If bent too far for too long, the frames does get stuck that way, especially the ear pieces.

How far these sunglasses bend does worry me. I wouldn't recommend allowing a child or anyone to play with these sunglasses if they're going to bend them. I'm afraid they could actually break.

I've had several people ask me to see these sunglasses, and they're first reactions once they felt the lightweight frames were that they were "cheap" because of how light and bendable they were.

Check out these sunglasses on Amazon.
