Ombraz Classics Armless Sunglasses

The Ombraz armless sunglasses are—without competition—the best pair of shades I’ve worn. And I have owned a lot of shades, because an active lifestyle tends to destroy sunglasses. Sunglasses can be frustrating, because my active lifestyle tends to destroy sunglasses. They’ve fallen off my face on runs and hikes; I’ve lost countless pairs in lakes and rivers (even while wearing Croakies). I’ve never dared to take a pair of sunglasses climbing for fear of watching them plummet to their… Full review

Nooz Optics Rectangular Reading Glasses

Nooz Optics reading glasses aren't designed for backpackers, but they hit all the right notes: lightweight, comfortable, incredibly easy one-handed use, versatile, and virtually indestructible. If you're old like me, you might have started carrying reading glasses with you everywhere you go, and the backpacking trail is no exception. Adjusting camera settings, reading maps, or courting sleep with a few chapters of pulp fiction all demand that mighty presbyopia chaser, the reading glasses. For some… Full review

Revant F1L

They fit, protect, and look nice. A great all-around set of sunglasses Revant F1L Sunglasses I used to think that sunglasses were all pretty much only about choosing a style that you liked. After a time as a brand ambassador for a different sunglass company (not Revant) I learned that there is so much more to them other than just looking cool. It's bright up here (Mt. Adams, 12,000-ish feet) Why I need sunglasses: A story: On Mount Baker, Jeremy, Rudy and I started climbing at 1:00 a.m. and at dawn… Full review

Bolle B-Rock

The B-Rock sunglasses pair excellent optics with impact resistance. Super lightweight wraparound sunglasses. The work really well in any speed sport. The Bolle B-Rock sports sunglasses work exceptionally well for any sport involving speed. The wraparound construction provides maximum eye protection while the NXT lens offers enhanced visual acuity and increased impact resistance. NXT is both lighter in weight and offers higher ABBE value than Polycarbonate lens material. The Abbe value is how clear… Full review

Julbo Breeze

These sunglasses are suitable for hiking in many environments. They have a fully adjustable fit and an attractive look, while having photochromic lenses. The Julbo Breeze in blue/coral with photochromic Zebralight lenses are comfortable, block rays from level 1-3, and protect eyes from UV, while still looking cute. Made to fit any face because they are fully adjustable, the quality of these sunglasses are worth the price. They don't fog up, or mark up easily, and if a lens breaks, they are replaceable… Full review

Popticals PopGun

Popticals sunglasses provide excellent optics. The unique folding design makes them easy to store and carry. I confess that I have a weakness for sunglasses. I have sensitive eyes so I wear sunglasses 365 days a year. I own a lot of different types of sunglasses produced by a number of companies. I like different types for different activities. That being said I have never owned a pair of sunglasses anything like the Popticals Popgun sunglasses. Packed into a very small hard case with a swivel catch… Full review

Shwood Canby

Great optics paired with a stylish frame made these sunglasses a hit with me. I admit to being a lover of sunglasses, having pale blue eyes that are super light sensitive has made me so. These Shwood Canby sunglasses check off all the boxes for me. The name Shwood should give you a hint into the fact that this line of American made sunglasses either have frames made from wood or incorporate wood inlays for a dynamic fashion statement. The pair I received paired Italian cellulose acetate frames… Full review

Sunski Dipseas

Okay, if you're stubborn. These sunglasses compromise functionality for style—better for light use, not good as sport eyewear. Get ready to take advantage of the Sunski lifetime warranty. These glasses might be okay for driving or a light day hike, but if you're backpacking, biking, or climbing I'd leave them home. Pros in more detail: You'll look cool. They stay in place on your face. They don't fog up (ventilation isn't an issue). The frame stands up to many drops and bumps. They work well… Full review
