The Fluid sunglasses by Quiksilver have been in lineup for years and come loaded with a handmade Zyl Acetate frame, sleek 10 x 4.5 Base toric lenses, and a low profile, custom metal logo inlay. All Quiksilver lenses provide 100% UV protection, are distortion free, optically correct and shatter resistant.

Comment: It is hard to tell from the picture that the glasses are very curved and do not fit my face well. I try and prop the glasses up on my head for a second to read something and they are so tight they come sliding off. I have had Quiksilver sunglasses in the past and they fit very well. I am hoping they will relax and stretch out a bit. Sometimes they give me a headache they are so tight. I will never buy sunglasses again without trying them on first.
Questions From Buyers
What is Zyl Acetate? Zyl Acetate, or Zylonite, or cellulose acetate, or just plain Zyl, is a lightweight plastic resin often appearing in laminated form with layers of different colors. It offers a rich, dense finish and can be used to create endless color, pattern and texture possibilities.
What is an 10 x 4.5 Base lens? A lens' Base refers to the amount of arc in the lens and therefore the arc in the frame. The first number (10) is the horizontal arc. A 6-Base is a more flat, square shape creating a more scholarly look. A larger base like a 10-Base is more wrapped and therefore will appear more suited for active endeavors. The 4.5 means it's rounded from top to bottom.
