Recomendations For Hiking/Backpacking Sunglasses?

Postby ZooBooBooZoo on Thu Sep 26, 2013 5:25 am

I'm planning a ~year long trip across Europe and India, where I'm gonna need sunglasses in different climates and situations.

They need to be:
1) Have great protections for the eyes(Polaroid right ? :shock: )
2) Be durable(So they don't break easily during the trip and so I don't have to worry about them all the time)

I was thinking about Oakley, there sunglasses seem to meet my needs.

Thx in advance, ZBBZ.

Great Question. Consider brands like Oakley Sunglasses and especially the Julbo Mountian collection. Both offer great protection against climate and glare. It's a little known fact that Tag Heuer Sunglasses are designed for many applications, hiking listed amoung them. As far as durability, yes they both are but remember to care for your lenses. When not in use store on your head or in their proper cases. We don't want your lenses to get beat up.

I hope this help.
