Over the last few months i have been trying out a pair of sunglasses which should suit all seasons at a very reasonable price.
Being 99.9% UV protection is exactly what is required for outdoor adventures.
There are lots of good glasses out there but some are hellishly expensive and once you start to get into snow sports then the price can rocket.
These glasses cope with the glare from snow and bright reflected sun perfectly well.
Made by Peltor with Maxi- impact system for safety and optical clarity. They have triple reflex coating which gives a mirror finish and scratch resistance.
The ones that i have are a red/yellow Titanium colouring to the lenses but they are available with a blue colour if you prefer.
The side bars have a torsion lock which holds them against the head very snuggly. The frames and side bars are high density nylon capable of taking impacts and extreme temperatures.
At the bridge of the nose and at the temples are vents to assist in the de-misting process. They also work well in keeping the rain out of the eyes on bad weather days. The colour of the lenses keep the vision light rather than dark as they would be with std black lens glasses.
All in all they are suitable for the following sports:- Hiking, Fishing, Driving, Sailing, Yachting, Skiing, Snowboarding, Surfing, Tennis, Cricket, Running, Athletics
CE Approved to EN 166 1FT & EN 172 (99.9% UV Protection).
Cost. £12.99 which i think is a great price for such a quality item.
Available at Amazon, from a company called Hand Held Audio. Click Here.

- I am 59 and live in the North West of England with my soulmate Sheila. I have been backpacking and hiking since my early teens. Those early days were mainly spent in the Peak District. Having aquired the basic skills i have since enjoyed both long backpacking trips and shorter hikes in Northern and southern Spain, Iceland, Norway, Madeira, New Zealand, Tasmania, Australia, Majorca, England, Scotland and Wales. Many people i have met along the way have remained friends to this day. It is a pleasure to have met them.
