A few weeks ago we received a pair of Gatorz sunglasses for a product review. Since then, we’ve had the chance to put them through the ‘CrossFit’ experience—handstand push-ups, sprinting, jogging, you name it. Overall, these USA made sunglasses live up to their “there is no substitute” tag line.
This is just one place were Gatorz eyewear stands above the rest. Because the frame of Gatorz is made from 7075 Billet aircraft aluminum, you can adjust the sunglasses to fit your face as tightly as you’d like. This is something you just can’t do with your standard pair of plastic sunglasses. Once I adjusted them, I was able to do double-unders, handstand push-ups and all types of vigorous exercises without them falling off. You’ll see a custom pair of Gatorz on the athletes at the 2016 CrossFit Games this year, so you’ll get to see them in action!
Gatorz were made for active lifestyles, so it’s a must that they’re able to withstand a little pain! The glasses have dual sided-5 barrel hinges; this ensures the snug fit will stay in place and that neither of the legs are going to fall off in the middle of a workout (if you’ve never had that happen to you then you’re lucky!). The lenses have an anti-scratch coating which is key if plan on throwing them in your gym bag at some point (and your gym bag looks anything like mine!).
Of course, this one is more subjective then the rest, but I think they look pretty bad ass! I went with the Magnum Polarized Black (the same pair Josh Bridges sports). These offer 100% UV protection and are part of the Tru Ray Polarized series which allow you to see bolder colors and deeper contrast. This isn’t a standard feature in their eyewear, so read carefully when on their website.
