Hilx Unfold Spring-Open Sunglasses are super compact to go with you anywhere

Style up your day with the Hilx Unfold Spring-Open Sunglasses. This pair of sunnies will transform the way you protect yourself from the sun. When not in use, the Unfold sunglasses are totally compact as they fold down in three ways. However, when you want to wear them, simply grab and shake. This motion propels the sunglasses into their full form in just 0.05 seconds. This also means that it takes only one hand to put them on so you can get going. Traditional folding glasses require two hands as well as a degree in origami. However, these compact sunglasses actually simplify your life. But don’t let the design fool you. These foldable sunglasses are robust and durable to accompany you on all of your adventures. Completing the design are scratch- and impact-resistant hydrophobic lenses that come in several colors.

Jesse Nguyen

Curt Wagner
I located my package at the post office. Thanks for following up.
With your discount given, it is cheaper than our kickstarter price. Damn, doesn’t make sense at all.
Curt Wagner
A month since the last update and still no sunglasses or shipment confirmation. This is unacceptable. I want my sunglasses or my money back.
Have you shipped out the polarized glasses?? No notification received of shipping. Thanks
Luis Diaz
Havent received my glasses here in France.
Could i get news about my order ?
Frederik stott
Just got Them today :)
Mohamad Kamsani
Ok these sunglasses are really good but I am upset that i will have to pay $65 to get the lens changed at an optician. If you had provided options like we requested and not stuck to your mirrored lens we wouldnt have to pay more money.
Woo Sung Park
I’ve just recieved my sunglasses, however one of the joints in the glasses was already broken and there were defects in the polarized lenses; what I see from each lense was slightly different thus making me dizzy. I would like a replacement.
Mohamad Kamsani
I have received mine! Thanks! What are the dimensions of the lens? What are my options to change it? Is it similar to Oakley's Frogskin?
Mel Soh
Just received (: @ Singapore
Iain McRobie
What is the latest information regarding shipping of the polarized units. I'm in New Zealand and haven't heard anything yet.

Last update was more than 2 weeks ago. I would like to know if you will meet the end of October shipment for the polarized Hilx?

I have a defective product. I wore mine rowing, got splashed and now the film on one of my lenses has discoloured. Please either tell me hot to fix it or replace it
Mohamad Kamsani
I'd like to know if i'll receive my pledge by Nov 17th? Headed for a 2 week work trip and would like to use Hilx.
Aaron Lew
Hi, i have a defect on my product. One of the screws at one of the hinges came undone. Wouldn't have expected this given that the product should be able to withstand plenty of movements at the various hinges, and hence should be its strongest part. Could you get in touch with me to see what can be done? Thanks
Hi Hilx, any Update on the polarized Unfolds? Or did you ship them altogether? best Pierre
Hi all, We realized that some backers already received their Unfold! Glad that you all like it. Please do not hesitate to share and tag us #travelwithhilx #hilxunfold on your social media. We are about to launch campaigns on our facebook and instagram. Stay tuned! Thanks,
The Hilx Team
Rob Wilkinson
Received my two pairs today. Really pleased with them.
Mohamad Kamsani
Hi Hilx, Your last update says you have been busy preparing documents and parcels for shipments. Thats great! How about an update that consists of production photos from the production line? Factory photos of Hilx being made. Photos like that goes a long way to building confidence in your brand and puts the mind of backers at ease.
Deepankar Joshi
Any updates ??
Ted S.N. Kwon
Question: Does our Polarized lens have a mirror effect?
Will To
Hilx could we have an update please?
Mohamad Kamsani
is noone worried about the lack of an update!?!
Mohamad Kamsani
We're due for a progress update no? Been 15 days since creator's last comment.
Huhu funded.. Congrats guys.. :-)..
Graham Tubbs
How many tests have the fold/unfold mechanisms gone through - most things that hinge become loose over time and if the Hilx unfolds when it supposed to be closed that would be disappoining.
Mohamad Kamsani
The stretch goal for Headband is met, will backers be receiving it? And how does the headband work with Hilx Unfold? Can we still fold the shades and how will it fit in the neoprene case with the headband?
Did we hit those stretch goals mark?
Pls update number of colours and also real time video or images..
Logo?? Only reflective shades?? As no reflective for me!!!
Sergiy Musatov
Different colors lens means different shades of vision. If red lens, you will see things in red shades?
Team, just wondering about the sticker packs? Will you be adding them for those who backed the other color?
Congrats on hitting the pledge amount :)
Alessandro "NeatWolf" Salvati
Hi there! I'm a bit unsure about pledging for polarised or non polarised lenses. Could you please post 4 real life, raw pictures, one per each color, watching the same subject, side-to-side with the non-polarised version? Is the polarisation on the upper edge, right?
@Creator Thanks for making the polarised lenses and listening to your backers. I really hope that this project comes to life. Since we are closing to the deadline, I think we wont be able to reach the stretch goal for the headband. However, I wish that this could be added as an add-on since many backers, like me, would be interested to have. Thanks again !
Arnav Goyal
That is super cool. Thank you helix for listening to us and making this possible. Cheers.
Christina Paine
Didn't I see your campaign on IGG a while back ?
Thank you very much for considering your backers opinions.
I guess this also means that you gave up on reaching the strechgoal?
Because what happens to polarized lense pledges when the scretchgoal is eventually met? I changed my pledge by the way. Thanks again.
Hey guys! We know that some of you have been asking about polarized lenses, and so we have been busy discussing with different factories to try and make this a reality for you all. In the development of lens, we faced many challenges with factories in terms of quantity and quality. It's important to not just have the polarized lenses for our backers, but also ensure that they are in good quality with a high-impact resistant coating. It is crucial for us to provide good quality lens without compromising your vision. Finally, we overcame the challenges and managed to find a factory that accepted our production quality. For backers who want to upgrade to polarized lens, you can change your pledge on our main page to include the lenses now! Please note that the delivery time for Unfold with polarized lenses will be postponed a little, with the earliest shipment in October. We really want to send a huge thank you out to everyone for all your support! Thanks again to all of our backers who provided us with feedback during our kickstarter. Please help us get to our goal by sharing this great news to your friends on social media. A simple click means a lot to us. Best wishes,
The HILX Team
