    Good on you!

    I didn’t expect much when I bought the sunglasses but what a pleasant surprise they are. They’re light, fit very well on my big noggin’ and the glasses are good both in sunshine and the grey winter weather we’ve been having. I’ve also used them to battle freezing eyeball syndrome when I’ve been commuting in -20 C here in Finland.
    The hard case that came with them are a bonus and what’s most important: they look cool.
    I like shopping from smaller shops so now I’m thinking of getting a pair of new bibs or maybe a rain jacket…I have to see what kind of impact brexit might have on buying more expensive gear.

    Hi, thanks for your review and glad they surprised you! ;)
    Please note there are no additional fees or charges to EU post-Brexit as we ship from our base in the North or Ireland.

    Excellent

    My brother-in-law asked for these for Christmas so I bought them. I was astonished by the quality and the price! He will LOVE them.

    Shockingly good specs

    Bought the Claro sunnies in a sale and expected them to be on a par with most 'mid-range' casual glasses. I have to say that I probably wouldn't have bought a pair at full price, but that's because of an affinity I have with glasses from a well known sports optics supplier beginning with O. I've had so many pairs and they've rarely let me down. The biggest compliment I can pay the A.P.E. optics is that they are easily as good as similar O's, such as Holbrooks. The fit is great, they're super light and the quality seems spot on. Really impressed by getting soft and hard cases as well as a cleaning cloth. I will undoubtedly be wearing these on and off the bike. The other half commented on how expensive they looked. Really great quality and highly recommended.

    Looks good and would be well suited for autumn and winter riding too

    Would be good in low light level conditions :)
