Vinci Multi Lens Sunglasses-Review

Monday, April 25th, 2011

We at Vinci are proud of the excellent product review we received on our Vinci Multi Lens Sunglasses from Sport Product Review

The first thing my son said when he opened the case housing a pair of white Vinci baseball sunglasses was, “These are tight.” And he hadn’t even tried them on.

That was his way of saying that the glasses Vinci ( had sent us to try were cool. Whether you’d describe them as “cool”, “tight” or “super-duper,” there is so much going for these shades you’re sure to have the same reaction he did.

They come with three different types of impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses (smoked, blue-coated “mirrored,” and orange), which are easy to interchange. It’s like getting three different pairs of glasses for the price of one. You will always have the right lenses for the sun. The rubber ear tips make them extremely comfortable, while the rubber nose pads are adjustable and help them from bouncing as you move. They boast a total wrap-around profile to give better field of vision along with 100% UVA and UVB protection. They’re foldable and lightweight and, for a limited time, come with a free black holding case to protect them in an equipment bag.

So now, my son who never used to wear sunglasses while he played won’t take the field without them. Oh, and when he did put them on the first time…they fit perfectly. Not too tight at all.
