I was asked to review a pair of sun glasses from Be The Ball(BTB). The man I was emailing back and forth with told me to go to the site and pick out a pair I would like to try. I have sunglasses, so I went for the unusual, at least for me. I chose something in white.
The company’s claim to excellence is the ability of their lens to withstand pretty much any kind impact to include a bullet. They have a neat video on their site proving that point.
The glasses arrived in a very nice package which probably shouldn’t matter to me, but it does. If the item I am order is of good quality than a crappy package isn’t going to keep me from making the purchase, but still, I like things that are presented well.
I was impressed with the web site. Very easy to navigate, nice pictures of their products, and a comprehensive description of each item they are selling. The price can’t be beat as most all of their products are under $40.
When I took the sunglasses out of the package, I was pleased. The glasses looked nice and were very light weight. I put them on and discovered quickly that white is not my color.
This is me going, “Oooo, not a good look.” No problem. I am not reviewing for my own vanity, moving on. I wore the glasses for a couple of weeks and overall I liked them. Not super flattering, but that is a personal style and shouldn’t reflect on the product itself. They have several styles to choose from and most people will probably be able find something to fit their taste.
I liked the fact that the frame was so lightweight. When I am on the range all day a heavy pair of shooting glasses is no fun. However that lightweight-ness might compromise the longevity of the glasses. My frames came bent. Not bent exactly, but the glasses do not sit squarely on my face. They tilt to the left ever so slightly. It’s not much and perhaps is a fluke, but glasses that doesn’t sit straight is pretty annoying.
I don’t have enough experience with these sunglasses to know if the pair I received were the result of a quality control issue or simply a quality issue.
I am impressed enough with all other aspects of the company and the product that I am going to purchase a pair of BTB glasses for my very active 14 year old daughter. I will let you know the condition her frames arrive in.
