Here at Bamboo Sunnies we are passionate about the great outdoors, which is why we thought we’d offer some tips and advice on how to select the best pair of sunglasses for outdoor sports like trekking, hiking, climbing and mountaineering. If you’re planning on being out all day in sunny and bright conditions, then comfortable and really good eye protection is essential. Long-term exposure to the sun can cause severe and irreversible damage to your eyes so choosing the right pair of sunglasses matters! You’ll also want to be sure to protect your eyes from dirt, sand, snow and low hanging tree branches. Here are a just a few of the things you may want to look for when selecting a pair of sunglasses.
When choosing sunglasses of course they need to look and feel great, but when it comes down do it, the lenses are really critical. For those long days outdoors when you’re hiking or climbing, you’ll want to make sure that you have UV protection. Most high quality sunglasses provide 99-100% UV protection. You need to look for the UV400 label which means that your eyes will be protected from both the UVA and UVB radiation.
Many hikers and mountaineers also prefer polarized lenses as they can reduce the glare of the sun reflected on snow and water.
Next you’ll want to make sure that the glassed you select are durable. Hikers and climbers need a sunglasses that are strong but flexible in case they fall off, get steps on or get stuffed into a pack. Wooden or bamboo frames are perfect for outdoor pursuits as they tend to be even more durable than plastic.
Personally I’m all about comfort! In our opinion, a good pair of sunglasses have to be super comfortable so you can wear them all day or many days. Lightweight frames are normally the best option so they don’t hurt the bridge of your nose. You’ll also want a pair of sunglasses that fit snugly so they don’t fall off easily.
Style is always also a factor when choosing a pair of sunglasses and just because you’re not wearing them out and about around town doesn’t mean you don’t still want to look good! Some people prefer to have a set of sunglasses specifically for hiking and outdoor sports, others like to have one pair for everyday life as well as when they are outdoors. Luckily we stock over 300 styles, so there’s got to be just the right style for you!
