I really like the style and convenience of these. The hard protective case is nice. Unfortunately I have bought several in the past year as they are vulnerable to breakage. Some improvements in the design to make them more durable would make these great.

I bought a pair of folding flat readers which aren't cheap, but they only lasted half a trip on plane because the nose piece broke and can't find anywhere on Foster Grant web site where you can purchase a new set of nose guards and no one repairs them.

Excellent, but has one annoying flaw

By 

from Smyrna, GA

Comments about Foster Grant Gavin Fold Flat:

Excellent idea, concept. I find them to be very convenient for both carrying, fit, and lens quality. However, yes, I have experienced a very inconvenient flaw in the frame quality. With less than two months use, the two little plastic pieces known as the nose guard have broken. The result is the sharp metal mount for the guards now rest against your skin and can be harmful to your health.

I am currently searching for a solution. Perhaps a parts purchase or warranty parts shipment. If the nose guard pieces were more durable I would change my rating of this product from "2" to a "5". I just purchased my second set of this product, but I guarantee there will not be a third purchase unless there is a simple and inexpensive solution to this problem.

Gavin nose pads

By 

from Surprise, AZ

Comments about Foster Grant Gavin Fold Flat:

Like many others, the right nose pad on my collapsible readers broke. I contacted FG and explained I didn't keep the receipt but I was very unhappy that the glasses, which were otherwise great, had a inherent design flaw. They informed me that they redesigned the nose pads and that they'd email a prepaid label for me and if I sent back the broken ones, they'd replace them with a new pair. I received it today..the new pads have a small screw in them and I'm optimistic. Thanks for the great customer service.

Like the design, but nose piece fell off

By 

from Middletown, CT

Comments about Foster Grant Gavin Fold Flat:

Like many other reviewers stated, I too owned a pair for only a few months and used 2-3 times per week before the nose piece broke off. I will return them for another pair because I like the compact design, but I don't expect them to last much longer. If they would redesign the nose piece to make it more sturdy these would be a 5 star product for me.

Nose piece broke in 2 uses - do not purchase

Comments about Foster Grant Gavin Fold Flat:

This is crazy that so many people have had the nose piece break in a short time. These were not cheap!

Nose piece broke in half

By 

from Massachusetts

Comments about Foster Grant Gavin Fold Flat:

Quality appeared to be good, after all, they are Foster Grants. But went to put them on after wearing them only five or six times and the nose piece had broken in half. Took them back in exchange for another pair at the store where I purchased them. Wanted to give it another try because I like the compactness and fit very much. Wouldn't recommend this to a friend yet and other reviewers are experiencing issue with the nose piece as well. Foster Grant, you've got a smart design going here but the quality is on the shoddy side.

Case could be more durable--can it be purchased separately?

By 

from Raleigh, NC

Comments about Foster Grant Gavin Fold Flat:

Considering how many pairs of readers I've crushed in my pockets, perhaps I'm asking too much of this case. I really like the slim design, and I'm buying another pair today.

Love these but...

By 

from Fremont, CA

Comments about Foster Grant Gavin Fold Flat:

I bought a pair of these glasses last year while at JFK and have had no problems with them except for almost losing them quite a few times. I really like them and was planning to purchase a couple more just in case i misplace the one i have. But... after reading the reviews of quality problems with the nose piece, I'm concerned about investing in a few more of these. Can anyone respond?

I will buy these again.

By 

from Shipman IL

Comments about Foster Grant Gavin Fold Flat:

I really like the fold up glasses and case. But one of the nose pieces has broken off. I found it and glued it back on. I'd like to get replacement nose pieces. How and where can I get these?

I like the fold flat design and the hard case but one of the nose pieces fell off after two months of occasional use.
