Protect yourself from all angles with oversized lenses or an 8-base wrap design. These lens shapes will provide the maximum amount of sun protection to keep you covered against harsh UV rays.
When you're out trekking the terrain, the last distraction you need is uncomfortable sunglasses. Today, innovative frame materials make these sunglasses more lightweight and durable than ever. This means you can take on full-day hikes in total physical and visual comfort.
