What to Look for in Driving Sunglasses

Comfortable Fit

Of course, for your ride to be the most enjoyable, you'll want your sunglasses to be as comfortable as they can be. You'll want a frame that stays in place and doesn't require any adjusting, so a rubber grip on the nose pads and temple tips will aid in that security. Another feature that benefits a comfortable driving experience is making sure the frame is made with a lightweight material, which will make it both durable and comfortable for all-day driving down dirt roads.

Generous Coverage

Generous coverage means having a distraction-free frame that doesn't have thick side temples, which makes it hard to see in your peripherals, and you don't want to block those side views. Some prefer a wraparound or a flatter frame. Both work well for driving, so we'll leave that decision up to your personal preference.

Polarized Lenses

We recommend polarized lenses for driving sunglasses. A copper-based or rose copper-based lens as they warm up the world around you, making your view a more vibrant and enjoyable ride.

Know that no matter which driving sunglasses you choose, you're always backed by our See Better Guarantee. If you don't absolutely love your frames, simply let us know. We can coordinate an exchange, or return at no cost to you.

Now let's cruise into this year's best-ofs!
