Sunglasses do more than just make you look cool—they’re essential for eye care, if you intend to use your peepers for the rest of your life. Some of us even have multiple styles, depending on our chosen sport, or mood.
As someone with light-colored eyes, I’m pretty light sensitive, and wear sunglasses when there’s no sun out.
Until recently, most of my sunglass lenses have been gray, because it seemed other options weren’t dark enough. But I’ve been testing out the Kaenon Bolsa sunglasses (with copper lenses), and it seems I have to revise my beliefs.
Bolsa frames are compact, and designed for small or narrow faces, so those of you who require big, bold sunglasses, take a break and look elsewhere.
For non-sport sunnies, I tend to choose bigger ones, just to make sure I’m keeping all the light away from my eyes. But those can tend to take over my face, so choosing frames that fit its size is a much better practice.
The frames are lightweight and flexible and lenses are polarized, which help reduce glare of the sun off water or a solid surface. By neutralizing glare, polarized lenses help you see objects more clearly, and also help reduce the harmful effects of UV light.
The Bolsa sunglasses have a one-year frame warranty and Kaenon’s Lifetime SR-91 Lens Warranty—covering cracking or splitting of the lens at drill-mounts, or delamination of the inner polarizing film and the lens material.
I’ve used these sunglasses both on and near the water, as well as while hiking in the mountains and just touring around town.
At home, they sit patiently on the entryway table, ready for me to grab when I’m headed out of the house whether the sky is sunny or cloudy.
Kaenon Bolsa sunglasses come in two frame colors: eggplant (with gray lenses) and tobacco denim (with copper lenses), and list for $194 on the Kaenon site. They’re also available at Amazon.
