For a frame you'll wear all day long, you'll want it to be lightweight, and equipped with rubberized temple tips and nose pads. Hiking sunglasses should feature a non-slip fit so you can climb any mountain worry-free. Hydrophilic material is a great choice on nose pads and temple tips, as this material soaks up moisture and increases grip the more you perspire.
Contrast-Enhancing Lens Technology
The best tint colors to choose for your hiking adventures are brown, copper, gray, or green. For a more in-depth dive into these lens technologies and why they work best for hiking, check out this buyer's guide.
