    Created for athletes by athletes, the Switch Boreal polarized interchangeable sunglasses employ an innovative magnetic system that's easy to use on the go—no more bulky, mechanical lens swaps.

    • Polarized lenses reduce 99% of visible glare from water, snow, sand and pavement for increased visual acuity and decreased eye strain
    • Switch interchangeable system uses high-energy embedded magnets, so lenses jump into place when brought near the frames
    • Magnets are engineered to stay in place when subjected to the intense jarring of skiing, snowboarding, running or mountain biking
    • Superior grade nylon frames offer a consistent fit and flexibility in all temperatures and are extremely impact resistant
    • Frames include 2 sets of lenses—1 set of polarized lenses for bright light and 1 set of non-polarized, rose-tinted lenses for low light
    • Matte black frames come with gray polarized lenses, which provide true color definition on bright, sunny days
    • Cactus frames come with amber polarized lenses, which enhance contrast on bright, sunny days
    • Lightweight and virtually shatterproof, polycarbonate lenses are 20 times more impact resistant than glass and one-third the weight
    • TriGuard™ thin-film lens coating is easy to clean, withstands rough handling and causes water to bead up and run off
    • Magnetic LensPod™ keeps your lenses protected in an easy-to-carry, contoured case
    • Switch Boreal polarized sunglasses also come with a microfiber cleaning pouch
    • Medium to large fit

    Imported.

    Switch Boreal Polarized Interchangeable Sunglassesis rated3.0out of5by1.
    Rated3out of5byfromgreat fit, but don't dropThe glasses fit and look great. Lenses have excellent clarity in visibility, but I accidently dropped them in a restroom, and the lenses flew out across the floor into other stalls. I was up skiing, and didn't have the other set of lenses, so was afraid to pick them up and discover they were damaged. The lenses were in good condition, so I reinserted them. Now every time I use them I'm afraid of dropping, bumping or falling while skiing. A fall on the slopes, or bumping during a hike would surely dislodge them again. If the lenses fall to a place you cannot recover them, and you are not prepared with the other set, you're out of luck.
