Quality, style, and a reasonable price: These sleek and durable shades have a lot going for them. The Prospect’s polarized, scratch-resistant lenses are made from an organic bioplastic polymer, and after a summer of hiking and biking around Colorado, they’re as unscratched as the day we got them. Full UV protection safeguards against harmful rays, and the lenses improve contrast on both overcast and bright days. “On a trip in the Wind River Range, they cut the glare and were useful for spotting fish in alpine streams,” one tester says. The wide lenses offer full coverage while still fitting snugly on smaller faces, and we never experienced pinching behind the ears. Ding: No rubber nose pads means we battled some slippage during sweaty hikes.
