New Cheapism Research Identifies Quality Affordable Sunglasses for Summer
Review site recommends four sunglasses brands with models starting at under $60.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 12, 2012
Sunglasses are a necessity this time of year, and Cheapism.com, a review site dedicated to finding quality low-cost products, published a new buying guide for consumers searching for an affordable, fashionable, and protective pair of shades. After researching key features and analyzing online reviews, Cheapism has identified the best cheap sunglasses brands with prices under $60: JiMarti, Black Flys, and Nike for men and women, and Sunbelt for men, women, and children.
Based on the advice of experts, Cheapism recommends buying sunglasses with UV protection that bear a label reading “100 percent UV protection” or “UV400.” This indicates that the lenses successfully block all harmful wavelengths of ultraviolet light. A lack of models with such labels knocks Adi Designs sunglasses from the list.
Polycarbonate lenses are another critical feature, especially in sunglasses used for sports. Polycarbonate is a lightweight synthetic plastic that’s very durable and distortion-free. All the sunglasses on Cheapism’s list come with polycarbonate lenses that provide full UV protection.
Polarized sunglasses mitigate glare from the sun to help you see clearly. This is particularly useful when driving or partaking in any outdoor activity. Many inexpensive sunglasses lack polarized lenses, but some in the budget range, including select models from JiMarti, Black Flys, and Nike, are polarized. All Sunbelt sunglasses boast polarized lenses.
Most sunglasses reviews focus on style, but many also discuss comfort, performance, and durability. Users report that the Sunbelt brand, for example, is comfortable, stylish, and exceptionally good at blocking the sun’s rays from all angles. The sporty Nike sunglasses win points for comfort and versatility; users say they can easily transition from sports to more sedentary routines. Users like wearing select Black Flys sunglasses with polarized lenses for running, golfing, driving, bike riding, and fishing, and find the brand to be highly durable. JiMarti excels in customer service by honoring its lifetime breakage warranty — sometimes within hours.
Called by The New York Times “a Consumer Reports for the cheap,” Cheapism.com is a review site that serves consumers on a budget who want the best value for their money. Cheapism is the only review site that focuses exclusively on low-price products, a part of the market often overlooked by experts.
