Living in South Florida, having a pair of sunglasses is a must. Having a pair of polarized sunglasses is critical. You'd be surprised how helpful they can be compared to regular sunglasses, even when driving in the rain. The problem with them though is that they can tend to be expensive. That all changes with Knockaround. They make affordable polarized sunglasses that also come in many styles and colors to make them fun to wear and easy to buy as many as you'd like without breaking the bank.
The first pair I chose was the Fast Lanes Sport Neon Orange/Moonshine. As a BibRave ambassador, I now own a lot of blue and orange gear so I wanted a pair that matched. Although it hurts to wear Gator colors as a Seminoles fan, they're cool enough that I can deal with it.
The second pair I got was the Premiums Sport Cool Runnings. Cool Runnings is actually one of my favorite movies but I also really liked the color scheme of these. I feel like they're great for the beach and fishing.
The first thing I noticed and liked is the durable feel to them. I've had many affordable polarized glasses that felt very flimsy and cheap but these feel like great quality. They don't feel like they will easily break. I also really like the fit. They hug my head snug enough that there's no bounce or sliding around while remaining comfortable. The rubber nose pads definitely help with this for sure. I also like that they cover enough of your face to keep your eyes protected from the sides but leave enough room so that they don't cause your cheeks and face to feel hot.
They're made with a super lightweight polycarbonate material. The glasses feature UV400 protection and FDA approved impact resistant lenses. They work best with medium to larger sized head shapes and round, rectangular, oval, or diamond faces. Each pair comes with a protective pouch and they offer 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
So far I've used them casually, at the water park, the beach, fishing, driving, cycling and running. I can say that they are all around great glasses. I love being able to see better and not strain my eyes when out in the Florida sun. I've also found them to be helpful when driving at night to reduce the headlights from oncoming traffic. I've taken them on some 3-4 hour runs and whether I rested them on top of my head or wore them regularly, they stayed in place and almost felt like they weren't there. I will definitely be buying more, especially since they offer free shipping on all orders.
They currently have 15 different styles with many color options for each style. If you hurry, you can use code BRKnocks1 for 20% off a pair. This is a one-time use only code and it expires on 6/30. Simply go to knockaround.com and find your pair! I highly recommend these glasses and believe you'll enjoy them to if you get yourself a pair.
