In for review are a couple of pairs of Eagle Eyes Sunglasses.  These sunglasses utilize cutting-edge NASA-certified technology. Sure, the golf courses are closed for the winter right now in northern Utah, but I’m testing the Ramble model out on the ski slopes in the meantime. I sported them for three straight days this past Sat-Mon in some bluebird skiing conditions. I may have to do a post about them on my ski website at www.hike.ski as well!

The lovely bride is digging the Eagle Eyes Memory Flex Aviators, shown in the photo below.

I have to admit, I’m a bit jealous about the aviators. I may need to snag a pair of those for myself, though I’m extremely happy so far with the Rambles.

Let’s hope the snow melts down here in the city soon so I can start testing these out on the golf course. The “TriLenium 7” polarized lenses should be great in terms of bringing out detail on the fairways and greens.  Stay tuned for my full review of the Ramble and the Memory Flex Aviators after the snow melts!

Sentimental post time. Peak Vision was one of my early reviews way back in 2005!  It has only taken 14 years to get my next Peak Vision Sunglasses review started.  I’ve just gotten in a pair of their GX5 models in for review.

The design is stylish and simple.  Classy.  I’d forgotten how great the colors are when looking through Peak Visions.  I look forward to putting these in play and working on my upcoming review. One issue however, is that the courses here are closed due to snow. It’s the typical northern Utah 5-month frost delay.

Stay tuned this spring and let’s hope the snow melts soon, and I’ll get this review rolling.


Review: Reks Optics Unbreakable Prescription Sunglasses

I’m near sighted, which is great for writing golf blogs and programming code, but it is not good for golf. Without prescription glasses I can’t track the ball or see where it finished beyond around 150 yards. Lately I hit it so sideways I need prescription shades, and prescription antidepressants to make it through a golf round.  Fortunately in the sunglasses department I’ve been sporting some new unbreakable prescription sunglasses from Reks Optics.

About Reks

Reks frames are the bend but not break kind, which is great. Drop them. Sit on them. Bend them. No issues.  Reks is so confident in their product, they offer a 24 month replacement guarantee.

Lines/Styles

Reks offers two lines of frames: Leisure and Active.  The leisure line has styles which are similar to the Ray Bans Wayfarer as well as an aviator style.  The sport line has “wrap around” type sports sunglasses, similar to one might find from Oakley sunglasses.

Lenses

Reks lenses come in Chromalux, Lumolux, and Solux models. All Reks lenses are treated to resist dirt and are scratch resistant.  Optical grade polycarbonate material in the lenses provides high quality an superior durability.

 

Ordering

Since I have two pair of  “sports” style prescription sunglasses, I decided to have some fun and go with the Leisure line for my Reks shades.  I love the Wayfarer Ray Ban design, so I went with the Reks “Seafarer.”  Ordering was easy. I picked out the frame style and the lens style. I went the the Reks HD Trivex polarized lenses with anti-reflective coating. Loved the look of the mirror-red.  During the order I attached my RX.  Within two weeks my awesome shades arrived.

A day in the life with Reks

Today I started off around 8:30am at a local golf tournament.  The sun was shining and the temps around 90 degrees by the afternoon.  My Reks kept the glare down while keeping the colors and details of the course up.  Since my Reks are prescription, I’m able to see the ball even hundreds of yards away.

Following the tournament I spent some time at the pool with the family.  Loved the feel and comfort of the Reks while basking in the sun relaxing after a tough day at the tournament.  I even swim with them on sometimes.  All in all today I probably had the Reks’s on for 10 hours!

Final Thoughts

Reks prescription sunglasses are stylish, fun, durable, and extremely affordable compared to other prescription sunglasses.  I’m talking 1/3 to 1/2 the normal cost.  If you don’t need prescription like I do, Reks models are priced between $30-$60. A very affordable proposition.

Father’s Day is coming up quickly. Dad would love some Reks sunglasses.

In for review are some sweet, stylish new sunglasses from Reks Optical.  They’re not just sunglasses, they’re unbreakable frames with special prescription lenses.  I can see the ball, even hundreds of yards away!  When you hit the ball all over the place like I do, you really need to be able to see where it went.

I just ordered these prescription golf sunglasses glasses from the Reks Optical website.  Ordering was easy. First I picked out the frame style, then the lens style. My lenses are HD Trivex polarized lens with anti-reflective coating. Rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?  While ordering I attached my RX with the order and Reks took care of the rest.  In a couple of weeks my shades arrived.

I’ve just started testing them out today.  I played a round of golf in bright but overcast conditions.  I’ll put these to the test in all lighting conditions and post my full review in a few weeks.  Stay tuned.

 


Bolle’ Ransom Sunglasses Review

The sun always shines when you’re cool.

I’ve had the pleasure of wearing the Bolle’ Ransom golf sunglasses for a while.  These glasses are best fitted for a larger head, like mine.  One must have a large head to hold as much golf knowledge as I do.

Bolle_Ransom

Let’s take a look at the Bolle’ Ransom, or should I say look through them…

Features

  • Thick, stylish, unique frame design
  • The B-Clear lenses are anti-glare and produce colors and highlights well suited for the golf course
  • The lenses are as clear as glass but considerably lighter
  • The “Oleophobic/hydrophobic” lenses repel grease, dirt, and water spots
  • High strength nose pads and rubber gripping to keep glasses from slipping
  • 100% UVA and UVB protection
  • Nice case
  • Cleaning cloth included

On The Course – On The Beach

My on-the-course portion of this review is a little tough.  I wear prescription sunglasses which really help me see the ball far away.  I’m nearsighted, so reading greens, standing over the ball, and short range stuff is great.  But long range, seeing a ball from 150+ yards was tough.

That said, in my good range I loved the clarity of the lenses, the colors, and how I could easily see the contours and slopes of the course.

I sport these shades in far more places than just the golf course.  On my recent trip to southern California I thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the beach and soaking up the rays in the comfort of the Ransoms.

Other situations where sunglasses are great and the Ransoms have shined include outside parties, walks around the neighborhood, hiking, spending time at the park with my little boy.

On or off the course the style is fantastic and the comfort is as good as any shades I’ve reviewed.

Conclusion

If I had a prescription version of the Bolle’ Ransom they would be my gamer sunglasses on the golf course.

They’re certainly my gamers for many other sunny outdoor activities.
