Choose your tint: Copper is a great all-purpose lens, Polarized Smoke with Blue Zaio mirror is ideal for bright light, Orange gives striking clarity to every little feature on the trail, and Clear is the ticket for low-light snowfall. Each lens has a hydrophobic (water-repelling) and oleophobic (dust- and oil-repelling) coating. “Gusts up to 40 mph had dirt flying,” said a tester after a long hike up Colorado’s Mt. Shavano. “Not only were my eyes protected, but the lenses came out unscathed, and I never had to stop to clean them.” Change lenses by flipping a small, switch-like mechanism that frees the lens with minimal handling.
Tip: The lens looks secure when you slide it into place, but make sure you remember to flip the switch closed—or risk dropping a lens mid-stride.
Adjustable temple tips made of tactile rubber add a custom touch. The snug fit and full coverage are best suited for small to medium faces.
