Nimbus Sunglasses

I have had these glasses for two years and have found them to be terrific for flying my models in any light conditions. The lens selections are amazing. I lost a couple of lenses and replacements were easy to obtain through the website, customer service is tremendous. Many thanks for a great product. Terry
