Sunglasses for Skiing, Snowboarding, Climbing and Alpine Walking are made for
environments with high levels of light.
On ski slopes, light is reflected from the snow and therefore twice the normal amount of UV rays could enter your eyes.
These Mountain and Ski Sunglasses are all 100% UV protective and filter out up to 90% of natural light, making the eyes more comfortable, avoiding eye strain and increasing your safety by improving your vision.
Outdoorgb highlights altitude sunglass features:
- For glacier walking and gentle skiing, sunglasses should filter out up to 90% of natural light; side covers are sometimes integrated into this type of sunglasses to help keep UV rays and wind from entering from around the sunglass frames
- For skiing and snowboarding, sunglasses should be extremely durable to survive wipe-outs, have optional wind deflectors on the frames and ideally have a headband attachment to keep them securely in place
- Ski sunglasses will be highly appropriate for snowsports but they will also work well and look great when you are off the piste
