Rheos floating sunglasses for on-the-water days

How many pairs of sunglasses do you go through during a summer? I tend to lose at least one pair a month, either to the depths of a backpack or tote, as a left-behind item on a plane or in a car, or to the depths of a lake, river, or ocean. I plan to prevent the latter this summer however, with Rheos floating sunglasses.

Rheos sunglasses come in eight styles and 35 colors, and you get a lifetime warranty along with free shipping and free returns. So in other words, go ahead and try out several styles to determine your favorite. I ended up with the Bahias style, in gunmetal with an emerald lens. They do look pretty darn good, if I do say so myself. I could have gone with a tortoise color pattern and blue lens or a gunmetal on gunmetal monotone. The Bahias are a sports style and have a small frame, which works well for my face, and incidentally, for my 14-year-old son’s face, as he’s stolen these from me after seeing me wear them once! They have polarized lens with glass-like clarity, giving me 100% UV protection, and are anti-scratch, anti-fog, and anti-glare. I also like the comfort grip at the nose, which means they don’t slide off my face when I get warm in the summer weather.

You can also pick from aviator styles, rectangular styles and many more…truly, you’ll spend quite a bit of time playing with all the color and lens options. Each pair is only $50, and they’re incredibly durable and lightweight. My teen hasn’t managed to do any damage to them yet, and trust me, he doesn’t go easy on his stuff, especially his stuff that spends time outdoors on the river and lake.

Pick up a pair on the Rheos site and enjoy the summer without worrying about losing your sunglasses to the water!
