Sunglasses are an essential piece of equipment for me, whether I am running or cycling. You’ll rarely see me without them. However, I hate to pay top dollar for good sunglasses because I do have a habit of breaking them/losing them.
Take for instance, what happened to a pair of my favorites recently: I lost them for about a week, only to have the kids find them by shutting the hatch of the mini-van on them. The glasses? Done. Toast. Bummer.
Enter BTB Sunglasses. This is a company that appreciates where I’m coming from on this. Their promotion is to sell sunglasses with the quality of a $100 pair for less than $50. They recently let me pick out a pair of running sunglasses to try and I went with the BTB 910s.
My impressions? A nice, lightweight pair of sunglasses. They did a good job of filtering out the rays that always bother my eyes. They didn’t jiggle around much, which is a pet peeve of mine with sunglasses. And I like the style.
The only thing I didn’t like was a sense of “waviness” whenever I turned my head one way or another. I got used to it, but it was a bit strange at first. Overall, for the less than $50 price tag, I’d give these glasses high marks. At that price, if I left them on a store checkout counter (who me?), ran over them in the driveway (no, that’s never happened) or stepped on
them (yes, one of the kids has), I could live with it.
Interested in trying a pair? BTB is offering my readers a 20 percent off discount right now. Just enter Zippy20 at checkout and it will be applied. Stay tuned also, because in November, I’ll be giving away a pair.
