I got a POLAROID polarized sunglass yesterday. It cost me Rs 4400 with a Polaroid watch free. There were some good deals going on for fast track with 25% discount. After discount fast track polarized sunglass was coming to around 1600 rupees.

Last week I bought Fast track polarized model M067GR3P for Rs.1570 (after 25% off). I hope the last letter P in the model number stands for Polarized. I am not able to locate this model in fast track India site but able to locate this one (without letter P at last) for the same price.

Sport - Model No:M067GR3

Aren't the Oakley Fuel Cell heavy when you wear them? Can you post a pic of your new purchase?

Thats a very good choice. Maui Jims are mostly priced the same worldwide. India is a competitive place to buy. All the best.

Cheaper in India I think, IIRC, cousin got Maui Jims at a higher rate @ DXB.

OT, how do I register @ that site!

For sure India is cheaper for MauiJims and many other brands than DXB. The sad fact is that many of them are not aware.

Thats the employee login.

GKB, I Gate Opticals, Lawrence and Mayo etc - Buy yourself a pair of Carrera sunglasses @ ~5k. Very good value and excellent for driving. UV400 and so on.
