suncloud sunglasses

Postby marksil on Mon Feb 25, 2008 2:14 pm

I'm glad I stumbled on to this site! I,too owned a pair of Suncloud Rose glasses. Nothing compares! I rermember how beautiful a sunset would look at the beach and how well they protected in bright sunlight. I recently saw Suncloud online, and from what I've heard here, I will be greatly disappointed. I've been using the Serengeti Sedona lens, they are the closest I've found to the old Suncloud Rose in high contrast performance for water and snow.

SCR on lens

Postby vlc648 on Thu Mar 06, 2008 10:04 am

Found a couple of pairs of Sunclouds on Ebay but they just don't seem right to me. They are listed as new old stock but the SCR is located on the left lens. I have never seen it on the left only the right. Here are the links:

Anybody out there seen the SCR on the left lens before.

Put Washington state on the list of wanting REAL Sunclouds back. Signed petition.

repair of Sunclouds

Postby schad1411 on Tue Jul 01, 2008 9:35 am

I have never found a place where they could be repaired.... I finally gave up and threw them away.....which broke my heart... I had them for over 10 years.... best sunglasses I have ever found.... Although lately, I have found that they have become popular again.... I would call a suncloud dealer and see if they can point you in the righ direction....

I purchased sunclouds at Mohegan SUn Casino. LOVE THEM! Unfortunately my son just broke them. I have found several web sites that carry them. Just google or yahoo them.

Suncloud Rose colored sunglasses

Postby Plunger Mike on Mon Jul 28, 2008 7:58 pm

I purchased my first pair of Sunclouds in 1978 as a ski bum in Tahoe. I have since acquired a total of 4 and am down to my last functional pair. Any information regarding replacement frames from the above mentioned decade would be greatly appreciated.

Why can't I seem to find a pair of decent glasses with glass lens and a rose tint?

Bring back the original Suncloud SCRs.

Well, Serengeti makes Rose glass lenses of a high quality.

They use photochromic glass material that darkens outside. Serengeti sunglasses rose glass lens is called Sedona. The lens is outstanding. The frames are different though. Probably you will like one of their models.

hey there everyone from a true new suncloud fan
my dad had three pairs of sunclouds, two of which were scr. he got these in the eighties and they sat in a sock drawer and glve box for literally twenty years. then one sunny drive home he let me wear a pair and i fell in love with them. he let me adopt the sunglasses because the style of the frames kinda fruity on him and my mom thought so, but they looked good on me.
my favorite favorite favorite pair i wore all the time. i nearly cried when the frame snapped in the xorner of the right lense. i didnt bother trying to fix them but i couldnt bring ymself to throw them away. after a few weeks i saw the same exact pair on ebay, onely they werent scr and the lenses were scratched, so they were sheap. i bought them, took them to a glasses guy and he noticed how awedome of lenses they were and swapped the scr lenses into the ebay (still suncloud) frames.
i have now scoured ebay regualrly for scr shades. theyr there occasionally, but expensive

Re: suncloud- heres the real deal

Postby Guest on Sat May 02, 2009 10:42 pm

Guest wrote:Ok, after some very intensive research I know what the real deal with suncloud is. They were indeed out of business for a few years. Another company ( outlook eyewear ) began manufacturing them again a couple of years ago. Yet another company bought outlook ( safilo ) and has decided that suncloud does not have a large enough following to warrant their marketing at the moment. Inside info I received is that colorado and So. Cal are the only real markets for suncloud. I was told there is no international interest in them.
I found all of this out because when they were available recently, no one even knew about them. I was lucky enough to find them at a tiny local retailer. Sunglass hut, and every other place online didnt even know they were available again. I wanted to become a distributor, because sunclouds
are the best and I thought there were enough people out there who would agree with me. I figured all these people wanted them, but didnt know how to get their hands on them.

I actually have the Sales directors contact info, and was told if a good amount of interest could be proved, they might be willing to reevaluate the decision to stop production.

I guess Im wondering if the market is actually as small as they believe, or if it might be possible for us suncloud enthusiasts to band together, spread the word, and begin to see the world through rose colored lenses once again. Any thoughts?

~Z



now is everyone talking about the REAL sunclouds? whenever anyone is mentioning their suncloud rose lens sunglasses, you mean the ones with SCR on the top right corner of the lens? the ones from the 80s and then some? those are the ones i have. they [2 pairs] sat in my dad;s sock drawer for literally 20 years. i love them in way unnatural for a person to love their sunglasses. i have seen the new suncloud brand online, but they're not the same. i'm not sure if it's the same brand remade or a completely diff. company, but they're quite dissappointing compared to the original SCRs. the only place i've managed to purchase replacement frames, suncloud brand and all, is on ebay, and it was really just very lucky. take care of you sunglasses, and if they've broken, i'm very sorry for your loss.

but as to the whole enough interested marketing mumbo jumbo, as far as i can tell, everyone who has ever owned a pair of SCR suncloud sunglasses is totally in love with them and would do anything to replace them

just a guy wrote:I stumbled on this thread just out of curiosity about the Suncloud brand. I have to say I am pretty impressed with all the brand loyalty. I never owned any of the old school Sunclouds, but I work for a retail company and we carry the new Suncloud line. The guys last post is prolly pretty accurate, the new Sunclouds are not really the same as the old ones, but I would not go as far as to say the new ones are the same as the junk you can buy at the gas station. I just got a pair to replace the Smiths I lost and so far I am very happy. I would say that they have been pretty well received by our customers with out a lot of returns. Our company has a very liberal return policy and we take a lot of things back above and beyond manufacturers warranty, and it doesn't look like we are getting back a lot of these. I would say they are way better than $10 gas station sunglasses, and at $40-$50 they compare very favorably to much more expensive glasses.



we love the lenses AND the frame stayle. never seen such a combo of "function and fashion". if you'v never owned a pair of the original sunclouds, you can't begin to have an informed opinion. im sure the new sunclouds are decent sportswear, but sportswear sunglasses are ugly--everyone's thinking it. in the 70s/80s sunclouds we got the performance of high-end outstanding uncomparable lenses (the SCRs or course) and the style of cool looking frames

I just got a pair of the Body Glove Sandy Beach from Big 5 Sports like someone in an earlier post said, and the lenses seem the identical glass as my lost sunclouds (at least looking out). The frames are different but adequate, and there is no mirror coating on the outside like my old ones, but they look good on me, feel good, and most importantly...the world looks the same beautiful color it once did. I'm trying to get another. I love the rose color and what it does to the world. Big 5 only sells at the store, no mail order or online.

I rarely read this forum, just wanted to replace my Sunclouds, and I think these will do fine.

If you need to fix your Serengeti sunglasses, I would recommend to contact the manufacturer directly. Some repairs are covered by the warranty, they take it case by case basis.

Here is Serengeti's repair instructions:

INSTRUCTIONS TO SEND PRODUCT IN FOR REPAIR
Package your product securely and include your name, street address (no Post Office Boxes), a daytime phone number and your email address

Attention: Serengeti Repairs
8500 Marshall Drive
Lenexa, KS 66214
Do not send the product cases or prescription lenses.
REPAIR PROCESS
When your product is received it will be assigned a repair number. After reading your letter, a technician will evaluate your product to determine what repairs are needed and whether or not warranty coverage will be applicable. It is our option to repair or replace your product. If your product is NOT covered under warranty, an estimate for repair or replacement will be mailed to you. You will have 20 days to respond, either accepting or declining the recommendation. If you accept the recommendation for repair or replacement you will need to provide payment. That can be in the form of a check, money order, or credit card. If the repair or replacement is covered under warranty, you will receive no additional correspondence. Your repaired product or a comparable replacement of equal value and function will be shipped to you within 4-6 weeks.

Re: suncloud sunglasses

Postby SUNCLOUD SUBSTITUTE on Sun Aug 02, 2009 7:29 am

After reading all the posts, I now understand my love for my old Sunclouds. The new ones suck! Don't even bother. Enough with the matte finish by the way. Give me my glossy frames. Much classier. I must have owned 8 pair from 1989 to 2006 when I lost my last pair. Brown frames, black frames, both rectangular. Yellow and rose lenses. I really miss them. I have been to every sunglass store on the SF peninsula and tried on every pair of glasses that even looked close to the old Suncloud frame and finally found one that fits just as good. Brand is Native, model is "Cable". They have gray polarized lenses, mirrored, and they feel just like the old clouds'. Don't even know I am wearing them. I am totally content again. Check them out!

I have found my people!


I too am a hopeless x-suncloud owner.

I too am searching to re-capture the lens experience.

Even after reading this thread, i still cannot find any adequate replacement.

I am still waiting....
