As a BibRave Pro, I get the chance to test out a bunch of gear. I hope you’ll enjoy seeing some product reviews on my blog occasionally. Even though I receive the gear at no cost, I still promise to give you my honest opinion, no matter what.
A few weeks ago I received the XX2i Optics Polarized Sunglasses! This was definitely an item I was excited to receive! I’m someone who (obviously) spends a lot of time out in the sun in summer and after losing a parent to skin cancer, I tend to be really cognizant of the harmful effects that sun can cause to our bodies. People tend to immediately think of sunscreen, but often forget about their eyes. When I run, I tend to wear cheap sunglasses that I picked up for free at a race expo or something of the sort. My attitude has always been that I wanted something that did the job of blocking the sun, but I wouldn’t be upset if I lost or broke them. I’ve tried on a couple pairs of running sunglasses in the past year or so and still unsure if I wanted to make the investment. The XX2i Optics Polarized Sunglasses ended up proving to me that this is a gear item I’ve needed more than I realized!
The bottom line: I would recommend these sunglasses. They are an affordable alternative to some of the other name-brand pairs I’ve seen at running stores. They’re perfect for any sport you are moving around a lot and need protection from the sun. I ran a marathon with these sunglasses and even forgot they were on my face most of the time! Get yourself a pair here.
