From the Mag | Gear | Goodbye Summer, Hello Sunnies
Style, on the water or off
Sure, summer’s officially given way to fall and the welcome weeks of unobstructed rays may well be behind us for now, but that doesn’t mean we’re giving up our favorite accessories. After all, shades are applicable no matter the season, both in style and practicality, especially on the water where the elements are intensified. Here are a few of our go-to options from a review in our summer issue to get you through fall, winter, spring and beyond.
$100 • ARNETTE.COM
Vintage cool comes in the form of polarized lenses, rubberized body and light weight. From your convertible to your board, you're good to go.
$119 • ZEALOPTICS.COM
The Idyllwild offers full-wrap protection and polarized lenses in a light-weight package thanks to a multi-layered resin build that takes years of abuse from even the most active outdoors-woman.
$60 • KOMONO.COM
Light weight, comfortable and at home on the beach or in the city, the Urkel provides a throwback look for your inner hipster.
Dragon The Jam
$180 • DRAGONALLIANCE.COM
Dragon's most popular pair of sunnies lives up to its rep with retro Euro-sport styling, large fit for maximum comfort and 100 percent UV protection. Did we mention they float?
$140 • OAKLEY.COM
Rubber synthetic keeps the Turbine on your face when you're wet, full-wrap polarized lenses protect your eyes for long days on the water and impact-resistant lenses protect from scratches and shattering.
$100 • VONZIPPER.COM
The Dipsticks are made in Italy so you know they're cool. The hinges are corrosion-free so you can live in them at the beach. And the nose pads and temple patch reject slippage.
More sunglasses for fun on the water.
