Sunglasses are necessary for hiking since they ensure clear eyesight and shield your eyes when you`re moving around. Here are some recommendations to aid with your decision-making.
Protect your eyes so you may continue to take in the scenery on your treks year after year! Yet, not with any old pair of sunglasses. Which category should you pick? How can you tell if your eyewear will shield you from UVA and UVB rays? Which shape offers the best eye protection when hiking? We go through everything so you may select the pair of sunglasses to accompany you on your next outdoor trips.
Vallon`s mission is to produce the best eyewear to let you have all the fun while protecting you from any anticipated damage.
Why Should You Buy Sunglasses With Excellent UV Protection?
Sunglasses` primary purpose is to shield your eyes from the sun`s damaging UV radiation. So, while looking for the finest hiking sunglasses, this should be your first consideration. During your treks or other outdoor activities, 100% anti-UV therapy (including UVA and UVB) is necessary since the sun may rapidly become your adversary if you`re not adequately prepared. Don`t confuse tint with UV protection because clear lenses block glare but not UV rays very effectively. Both together for hiking
· Polycarbonate lenses and 100% UV protection eyewear:
All of Vallons`s hiking glasses are 100% UV-resistant. We guarantee it! The lenses on each one are polycarbonate. The ideal material for hiking glasses is lightweight.
To Pass the Mountain Test, Choose Glasses That Suit You Well!
For outdoor activities, your sunglasses should precisely suit your face. When you climb, jump, or pass an obstacle, your hiking glasses shouldn`t budge. Essentially, they should never fall off (or you fall) and be forgotten! The rubber tips on the glasses` arms promote good support by preventing the glasses from slipping off your face. You can always add a retention strap if you can`t find the "style" that fits your face.
Which Type of Sunglasses Should We Select?
There are four main kinds of sun protection for eyeglass lenses and several models in varied colours. Each category has a greater or lower tint intensity that adjusts to particular weather and lighting situations. You must evaluate the terrain of your upcoming excursion to select the best hiking sunglasses.
Which Eyewear Should You Take Hiking?
Vallons` Creations For Hiking Sunglasses All Have Category 3 Or 4 Lenses:
· Category 3: Category three lenses are designed for the most comfortable illumination on bright, sunny days (intense UV rays). In the summertime, treks on exposed terrain (such as open-air trails, ridge pathways, etc.) and other outdoor activities are ideal for this protection.
Which Shades Are Best For The Mountains? And If Snow Falls?
· Category 4: these glasses` lenses are worn when exposed to extreme UV radiation, such as hiking up a high mountain or over a glacier. These lenses filter 92 to 97% of brightness to minimize glare as much as possible. As a result, the lenses are pretty black.
Remember that operating a vehicle while wearing category four lenses is illegal.
Sunglasses That Offer More Or Less Protection Depending On Your Activity, Such As Skiing Or Mountaineering.
It would help if you used sunglasses with a covering frame since the wraparound design protects your eyes even at the sides as you ascend higher into the air. The covering frame prevents low-angle solar rays from entering the edges of the glasses when combined with wide arms. Another benefit is that it shields you from the wind, splashes, insects, and even branches and brambles on extremely tight routes.
The Advantages Of Polarised Lenses
Using eyewear with polarising lenses immediately elevates your level of performance and quality. Do they, however, make for better sunglasses? Contrary to popular belief, "polarising" lenses on your sunglasses won`t provide additional sun protection. Selecting a pair with polarising lenses allows you to discern between landscapes, perspective, outdoor components, and colour contrasts. They do so by reducing glare. The idea is straightforward: a "barrier" of tiny crystals prevents the reflected light from passing through the lens. This kind of lens performs well on a gravel route or in the snow.
Their one flaw is that polarising lenses make it difficult to view screens, including those on smartphones, because the polarising treatment reduces the screen brightness.
What Distinguishes Sunglasses For Men From Those For Women?
Are there glasses made exclusively for women and others for men? This may sound like a weird question to some. Now, not just for men and women, but for everyone in general, the contour of the face around the eyes is different. But, if you see sunglasses labelled "women`s" or "men`s," it`s more of a "aesthetics" issue than an ergonomics issue. In conclusion, pick a style that appeals to you personally! The sunglasses are gender-neutral.
