      Hi there. I didn't recieve my Glasses and I don't know why, could you please check if you dispatch it or not yet? Thanks

    4. Creator Marine Boudeau on October 9, 2012

      Hi, I emailed recently. Never received my pair of glasses. It looks like it must have been sent to the wrong address.


    5. Creator Jenny, Dana, Craig on September 28, 2012

      Roy, can you email me directly at We'll get this resolved.

    6. Creator Jenny, Dana, Craig on September 28, 2012

      Hi There. Sorry to hear about this confusion. The taxes must be a result of the customs forms. We filled out the paperwork for your SOLOs as Merchandise and placed the Kickstarter value on the forms. Do you know how the other products were classified on the customs forms? Thanks for helping us clear this up.

      Hi, received my pair of Solo's and T-shirt last week. Luckily we had still some sunshine left last week and have been able to take the new Solo's out for a walk. Now being happy with the sunglasses, one thing was a bit disappointing though! Arriving on my doorstep, I had to pay an extra Eur 27,7 for Import Duties? I was not expecting this and I am wondering If this has to do with the way its shipped out to Holland? Or what?
      I received other Kickstarter packages (even today, from the Blime light project) and did not have to pay anything at all.

    8. Creator roy liao on September 25, 2012

      Hey guys,

      Is it possible to send me another pair? I never received mine (see posts below)

    9. Creator rodricho_g on September 24, 2012

      Les, thanks! So stoked to hear that!!

      Jordan, your message put a huge smile on our faces. Some of the delays we experienced dealt with tweaking the designs and making sure the quality of our glasses was high. We're thrilled that you are happy with the product. Thanks!

      Nekola, We'll soon get to the $110 backers. Your SOLOs will definitely be shipped by this weekend.

      Peter, thanks for your kind words. We appreciate it. The lenses are CR-39 lenses which are great quality, providing full UV protection for your eyes. Thanks!!

I pledged $80 at the $40 pledge level in hopes of getting two pairs of the regular summer style. I messaged you guys as well, but I'm sure you were pretty busy back when I did.

    44. Creator Ian Frederickson on April 25, 2012

      Curious as to what color the lenses are in each style; they look different in some pictures. Is there a set lens color for each or will we have a choice? (e.g. mirrored lenses in the Bamblues)
