Hiking Sunglasses recommendation

Could I get some advice on men’s sunglasses under $50 for hiking/outdoors?  Combo of good sun protection and clarity.

Hi @Lancer1 - Thanks for reaching out! 

There are many great options available within those specifications you listed. Because choosing the style of sunglasses is such a personal choice, you may want to see what looks right for you within this filtered selection (men's hiking sunglasses under $50). 

Some recommendations within that group include:

Hopefully this helps!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

I have like using the suncloud @REI-CarterC and @Rob6 mention as well.  I though Pepper's were undersized, they pinch my head to tight and give me a headache if I use them for long periods.

Hi @Lancer1 .  

I have a couple pair of the Suncloud Slant that @REI-CarterC  recommended, and am really liking them.  I snagged 2 pair when they were on a "Deal of the Day".

I am a big fan of the wrap-around design as it helps to block wind from drying out your eyes, and blocks the sun glare from the sides.  They are very lightweight and comfortable.

Of course, that is just one person's opinion, and everyone has their own personal style.

Thanks!  Those are great options. I’ll start comparing now.

Hi @Lancer1 ,

By now you have probably already found some sunglasses, but I just saw this and thought of you.  You may recall that I previously replied that I liked Suncloud sunglasses.  Lightweight, polarized, wraparound, clarity of vision...

Well, on Wednesday, Sept 29, 2021, REI's "Deal of the Day" on the REI Outlet page , is the Suncloud Tension Polarized sunglasses for only $9.73.

At that price, you could get yourself some spares!

Good luck!

Hmm, now I am watching that deal!

For me the cheaper the better. I cannot seem to hike with a pair and not scratch them up- I tend to move them from my face to my hat to outside or inside my pack. Due to my sunglass-hiking habit I do this. exciting colors too. At this price you can lose three and still be in the green.
