Do-Anything Full Frames
Though Bollé spins these as ideal for winter sports, our tester thinks they’re more versatile. “They have awesome wrap and coverage for bluebird ski days, but they also worked great on sweltering days hiking in Jordan,” says our gear editor. The nylon frames are light on the face, flexible, and tough. “I forgot my case in Jordan, but these survived unscathed despite being crammed in pack pockets,” she says.
Rubbery pads on the nose and behind the ear kept them from slipping, even on sweaty runs. And venting built into the corners of the frame kept them from fogging up in all but the steamiest conditions. The gray polarized lenses (14 percent VLT) are crisp and versatile: “They worked well on overcast days, bright, snowy ones, and everything in between,” she says. Gripe: Although Bollé claims that the lenses repel dirt and grease, we had to be vigilant about cleaning. $109-119 (depending on lens); 1.1 oz.; bolle.com
