Hi Everyone!

A number of you have sent me e-mails asking about AOA Products and shipping confirmations received from them.

AOA is a fulfillment provider based in Toledo, Ohio that is handling the kitting and shipping of Lens Loop orders. Olivia and her team are working hard to ship all of your Lens Loops. 

They are progressing in the order in which pledges were received. If you haven't gotten a shipping confirmation e-mail yet, you should have one within the next few days.

If you have any questions regarding your order, please e-mail me directly at

Getting the first batch of Lens Loops made and shipped has taken much longer than I or any of my suppliers anticipated. I appreciate your support and patience. 

Best regards,

      Mine arrived last week, superb. Friends love it so will be buying some for them as presents.

      I hope you don't mind, but I wrote up my thoughts on the Lens Loop on my blog -

      Mine arrived via USPS today, and all I can say is it was worth the wait! The design, materials and construction are vastly superior to anything on the market today...and I mean EVERYTHING! From the supple 2" wide seat belt webbing to the nickel plated steel hardware, everything is top drawer through and through...even the sewn in LensLoop 1st edition tag is better than typical commercial quality. Assembly is precise and clearly above the level of anything coming out of China. This is clearly an American made product...wear it proudly!
      Damn fine job, Vadim...when do we 'go public"?

      I got mine yesterday and already tried it out. The same old saying ..."great idea why didn't I think of that!" Works great, thank you.

      Just got mine! It works better than even I expected. :) I just wish extra screws weren't so expensive...
