I wear my (BTB) sunglasses at night

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

No doubt this cool cat will try to make off with them

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.

Disclaimer: BTB gave me these glasses for free to review. All opinions are my own.

  1. alway use to wear sunglasses, but now that I wear normal glasses I just don’t wear them that much any more. I have a nice pair of prescription running sunglasses, but I run a lot of trail and if I run into the shade I loose sight for a bit, not good.

    I think I need contacts…

  13. I live in my sunglasses as well! And like you….always losing, breaking or just forgetting where in the world they could be! Found my last pair in my biking shoes after I crammed my foot into it! I must have thought that would have been a safe place to store them…if I had only remembered that! hahaha

  14. Thanks for the review. I don’t always wear sunglasses, but there is definitely a time for them. BTW, I’m old enough to get the ‘wear your sunglasses at night’ reference.

  22. Try these steps to move toward greater flexibility:.
    There is no place as home, it is the place you wake
    up from, and go back to every time. You should make a conscious effort to look into the fact that your child
    is not over burdened with the day to day life. From popular camp foods to summertime themes,
    teachers are sure to peak a preschooler’s interest in the following theme ideas.
    Talk to their leader, Cooper, and you can follow them to
    Nelson. Some camps may offer additional services which also will drive the cost
    higher. But for those who were so spick and span and tamed all their lives, this
    one great time to get wild and dirty while
    being mindful of your fitness boot camp instructors’ orders, of course.
    There is a price to pay for what we seek for

  24. Just how much folic acid do you need to notice a difference in your hair
    growth. Basically the foremost vital thing with skin care products is their selection. If our body
    is producing skin cells to repair wrinkles, there would be no problem at all, and all
    wrinkles would be temporary in nature.

  25. The cost of the moving mainly depends on the large number
    of variables; some of the variables include quantity of things being moved, differences in prices between companies, distance to be covered, time duration that would be taken for the move, number of people involved in packing, loading and unloading.

  26. Transparent hair color simply cannot compare to the intensity
    and dramatic appeal of opaque hair color. Duty up with the current pattern trends is not as hard as
    it may seem all it takes is a few tricks and a bit of
    investigate. However, the mere fact of adding them to summer dresses destroys the unique appeal of this type of boutique dresses online.
