I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing a few pairs of Under Armour sunglasses. Yes, sunglasses. Under Armour is well known for their killer athletic apparel. Does their eyewear live up to those high standards as well?

Under Armour Phenom Sunglasses

Today’s review is the UA Phenom model sunglasses. This are very stylish shades which cover a larger area around the eyes. My review spans two sports: golfing and skiing.

Overview

The Phenom model sunglasses have a very flexible frame made from a combination of titanium and “grimalid.” The flexibility of the frame allows it to fit many different size and shape heads. Despite being so flexible, the glasses stay firmly in place.

The patented ArmourSight lenses deliver 20% more peripheral vision without distortion than regular glasses while being 10x as strong. The lenses, most importantly, block 100% of harmful UVA, UVB and UVC rays.

This is a great feature for golfers who like to take their shades off to putt. The cap gripper ensures a secure fit when worn upside down!

Colors

There are two models available of this roughly $150 pair of shades, black and white. The black has black lenses (pictured) and the white has the orange/mirror lenses.

On The Golf Course

The details and colors I see on the course with the UA Phenoms is, well, PHENOMenal. Reading greens and course contours is wonderful.

The stability of the shades is fantastic, especially during my spastic golf swing. There is no movement or slippage at all, ever.

The wide coverage and super wide peripheral vision make it seem as if I’m wearing no glasses at all.

On The Ski Slopes

Many of the advantages the golfer enjoys with the Phenoms cross over into skiing. It is important for the slopes and contours of the mountain be easily visible. There’s nothing worse than hitting bumps and holes which one can’t see because the glasses produce too flat of a picture. The Phenoms deliver great clarity and detail on the slopes.

The same stability and non-slip feature which is great for the golf swing is fantastic for skiing. Even through heavy moguls (bumps), jumps and even a crash or two, the Phenoms hold their position.

As with golf, the wide viewing area and fantastic peripheral vision are a great benefit on the slopes.

Conclusion

For a pair of sunglasses to make it into my golf gamer bag or into my ski accessory bag, they must meet these three criteria: performance, comfort, style (don’t need to be Tom Ford Sunglasses though). The Under Armour Phenom sunglasses are phenomenal in all three categories.
