    I bought my last pair of shades from Amazon actually. The prices were fluctuating a bit and it was considerably less on there that at SGH.

    I have two pairs of the Eyepatch 2 and LOVE them. The first pair I scored off Evo.com because they were the purple fade to clear frames. I wanted a cheap set for work and scored them for like 60.00. The second pair the ones you have listed above I got through a friend that was was in the military. He ordered them through usstandardissue.com which is a military, LEO, etc type of site. The prices on there are roughly 50% off if you don't mind limited color/lens choices. If you know somebody that can get an account there you won't be sorry.

    Taco - did you go on the site? www.usstandardissue.com there is a laundry list of public servants that qualify. To bad education doesn't or I would be on the list. You have to know somebody that is on the list. When I first ordered I used my dad as he worked for the USPS which qualified.

    Hopefully they will. It sucks that you can't see the prices until you log in - you do know they also have the a frame called the "big taco" that is similar....

    they don't have the EYE Patch2 but for that big of a discount I'll damn sure settle for second favorite. lol.

    I'm gonna visit SGH and see if any new stuff have come out.

    well I just couldnt let it go and went to the store in the mall. went in and of course as luck would have it they had the pair I wanted on sale for 90 bucks polarized......sold out.

    they only had the non polarized for 100 bucks but after 10 long minutes of trying on different stuff i just had to walk out with a pair of sunglasses... i honestly have no idea why. something just came over me. so I got these and absolutely love them!

    150 bucks polarized with reflective lens not the black. I'll order my eye patch online later on. for now this is classy and can look cool too :)

    i walk into walmart and buy four or 5 pairs a year.

    i'd never buy an expensive pair of sunglasses...... i break them putting them in and out of my helmet, or ayla wears them and drops them and scratches the lenses, or (insert stupid rediculous reason here) .

    i'd just waste the investment :/

    I had the opposit problem. I never wanted to spend that kind of money so i would go to walmart, pick out a so so pair. They sucked and glared really bad and never fit the way i wanted them to so therefore I neglected them....afterall they were a walmart pair.

    not until I spent my first $100 on a real pair of shades did i 1)feel more confident 2) took better care of them. me losing the the first pair and getting suckered into get in the water with my second pair REALLY sucked. :(

    oohh and I've missing a shit ton by not going polarized!!! man what a difference it makes!
