About Reflekt Polarized
Reflekt Polarized was developed in 2012 by
sunglass industry veterans who felt the sunglass industry had some voids that
had not been addressed in the current marketplace. Reflekt was created
specifically to fill these voids by offering the brand philosophy of Absolute
Coverage™. We feel every customer deserves Absolute Coverage™ when buying sunglasses.
Lens Coverage: We offer two premium polarized,
optically correct lens platforms to protect your eyes. Our top shelf
Reactor lens features additional protective coatings (salt, sweat, smudge and
scratch) and Melanin technology which provides the equivalent of SPF 140
sunscreen for your eyes.
Pricing Coverage: With everything that goes into a
pair of Reflekt Sunglasses, we should be charging a heck of a lot more. Reflekt
is priced well below the competition when you compare apples to apples.
Our prices are driven by value.
Warranty Coverage: Never before has a warranty like our
existed in the sunglass industry. No matter what sort of breakage your
sunglasses experience, we have you covered. Additionally, our Lifetime
plus Loss warranty protects you against loss, yes loss.
Should you ever lose your prized shades, we have another pair waiting for you
in our warehouse!
