VedaloHD Sunglasses

0

We recently tried out a set of VedaloHD sunglasses and are quite impressed with them. They’re made in Italy and have the look of sophisticated style that one expects of Italian products.

More importantly, they function as well as they look. Rather than depend on polarizing or bizarre lens colors, VedaloHD has embedded a proprietary material right into the lens. The effect is to boost the red end of the visible range, reducing the effect of haze. Chris Pederson, the marketing director, says the drawback is that they’ve been unable to offer a prescription version. From what we’ve seen (pun intended), that’s not a problem for most folks in that VedaloHD offers a clip-on for regular eyewear.

They’re offered with titanium wire frames that are hinged so that annoying springy-ness is avoided when they’re being put away. The standard frames stood out a bit too far for one of the testers and allowed noise in past the headset cushions. The other tester, with not so narrow a face, had no problem.

While a bit pricey at $165, they’re hard to beat for comfort and function. For more information, visit VedaloHD.

KITPLANES readers will remember Bob Fritz (1947-2011) for his acclaimed Home Machinist series, but his accomplishments go well beyond that long-running feature. Following a stint in the U.S. Navy, Bob put his degree in mechanical engineering to use and was a tireless advocate for effective and consistent quality control. He brought that discipline to his work for KITPLANES. An avid diver and motorcyclist, Bob's love of flying was a surprise to no one.
