Testimonials & Reviews

FROM OUR INBOX:
“The Arlo's were my first pair of Kaenon's, purchased in Baton Rouge. I tried on every pair in the display, walked outside and was amazed every single time. I personally own 10 pairs of different brand sunglasses and this pair out-performs every single pair I own. I brought them home and the next day my brother, my best friend and another friend’s father all went out and got a pair. Every where I go and people say, “I need a good pair of sunglasses” I offer them to try mine on and go outside and see the world in higher quality. I love my Arlo's and just purchased another pair of Kaenon's.” – Nic Huges (via Kaenon.com)

“My friend got a pair of Sequence and I loved them so much on him, I had to get a pair myself. I wouldn't have thought that the same pair would work so well on both of us, but they did. He has them in the grey color and I have them in gold with copper lenses. The clarity is unreal and the style is awesome, looks good on men and women.” – Sam Brown (via Kaenon.com)

World Sailing Cup V3 - A Dead Rat in a Shoe or Spring Daffodils?
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphones while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV. She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
