I was given the opportunity to review a pair of Margaritaville sunglasses. This is a new line of polarized sunglasses.
I picked the Calypso model:
I have never spent more than $15 on a pair of sunglasses because usually a) I lose them b) I sit on them or c) I break them. It is nice to have a very nice pair of sunglasses, and the best part is that they come with a box to store them in, a bag to protect them, and a "leash" to go around your neck. That helps not to lose them and not to destroy them! Here are the details from the website:
- MPT (Margaritaville® Polarized Technology) nylon lenses
- 100% UV A/B Protection
- Heat Sculpted Polymer frame
- SunGrip rubber nose pads
- SunGrip rubber temple tip insert
- Spring hinges
- Integrated Margaritaville® Leash System
- Island Style details
- Ships with custom Margaritaville® Case and microfiber cleaning bag
MPT® Polarization TechnologyPolarized lenses act like slatted window blinds—when light hits a reflective surface it bounces and scatters, reducing contrast and clarity. The “blinds” in MPT ® lenses block scattered light rays but let in the “corrected” light with virtually no glare, allowing you to see clearly and fight eye fatigue.
All Margaritaville® polarized sunglasses feature premium fused polarization Technology. MPT® Fused lenses diffuse glare through the use of an integrated, pre-formed polarizing filter, layered within the injected lens, allowing incredible clarity even in the harshest conditions. MPT® fused lenses are the highest quality available and filter out 99.9 % of blinding glare.
How did they fit? The fit is great and they are super comfortable. I noticed that they make things look much darker than they are which can be a positive and negative depending on your needs. They provide great protection from the sun and stay on during running too! I like the palm tree logo that is on them - if my glasses are ever on a table and I'm not sure which ones are mine, they are easy to spot. I love that they have the "leash" that I can keep them around my neck. And I store them in my car in the box because right now I'm usually wearing glasses when I'm driving, or out at the park.
If you are willing to spend money for a nice pair of glasses, I would highly recommend these!
