Gear Review: Tifosi Ventoux Sunglasses

Glare proof photochromatic sunglasses at a sweet price

The Tifosi Ventoux with Backcountry Orange Fototec lenses brightened up the shady spots beneath thick forest cover in Colorado’s Park Range, but still provided adequate protection when our tester popped out into bright sun. That’s because the photochromic lens darkens to a glare-stopping reddish-brown.

Rubberized ear- and nosepieces keep them from sliding around on hot days. “Killer sunglasses for the price,” he declared. $60; .9 oz.; tifosioptics.com
