Gear Review: Zeal Optics Airstream

The large frame and polarization of these sunglasses will keep your eyes fresh all day.

Testers say these shades perform as good as they look. “The sticky pads on the nose and earpieces are subtle, but effectively kept the frames in place no matter how sweaty I got,” one reported after skinning and skiing in Colorado and Norway.

The polarized lenses reduce glare reflecting off of water and snow, which helps reduce eyestrain. One wearer reported zero eye fatigue after eight hours of sun exposure while spring skiing. The big, broad frame provides full coverage and hits cheekbones (on two different testers) perfectly to keep UV rays from sneaking in around the edges. $109; 1 oz.; zealoptics.com
