Cool, but Too Much Visual DiStOrtioN

These sunglasses look super-cool. A hair on the large side, but very sleek and sexy. That they curve a little around the side unlike other aviators is a bonus, adding additional coverage.

Unfortunately, there's enough visual distortion for me to send them back. Granted I'm picky, but visual distortion is big to me. These gave me a little vertigo/nausea, as though I were walking underwater. There's slight discoloration along the periphery, too, which contributes to the effect. I called Backcountry and the representative was fantastic, recommending (for the visual-distortion sensitive folks like me) more precise lenses like Oakley.
