    I'm looking to buy some EC/DC Xl.

    Those of you with Electrics what do you think of them or what do you prefer over them?

    Ive been looking for reviews but cant come up with any.

    I think they are in the same range as Dragon's, of which the paint on the frame of mine started flaking off. That said, I stick to Oakley.

    :wow: :rofl:

    OP- I have had three pairs of Electric sun glasses. I liked them okay but they were not that durable or scratch resistant.

    I am very happy with the 5.11 sun glass's I bought reccently and like them a lot more than the Electrics.

    Thanks for the input did they break? or was it that they just scratch or as stated above does the paint chip or flake with regular use I do okay with glasses (taking care of them). But since they are advertised as "durable" i don't want to drop them from car or truck and have them break.

    Thanks Mike

    I would get Oakley but the stem is really long on them and interfere with wearing a hat plus Im getting the sunglasses prescribed and for some reason my eye doc doesn't do Oakley's and I don't want to pay an arm an a leg for Oakley to do the Rx since I would only be left with one arm and one leg after buying the Oakley sunglasses.:supergrin:

    FWIW ... Sunglass hut and the other store exactly like sunglass hut but with a different name will install your prescription lenses in any frame they carry if you simply bring them in after having them fabbed.
