Quality sunglasses are a tool, a piece of gear and can be important to the success of a hunt just as much as any other gear. As an outdoorsman my eyes are incredibly important to me. I need my eyes to be protected from the elements, from UV rays to sticks and twigs walking through the woods. I had the chance to test out a few pairs of Under Armor Camo Storm 2.0 and Under Armor Hook-D Polarized sunglasses.
After testing out both over two weeks, I settled on the Under Armor Hook-D Polarized. UA makes a Storm Camo 2.0 Polarized and had I gotten those to test I probably would have settled on those for hunting and fishing as one pair that worked for all of my needs. The pair I have looks good in the city and works exceptionally well for the outdoors with a classic wood grain look and solid feel.
One of the features I like most is the built in venting system on the glasses. The venting system keeps the lenses from fogging up. They ride well on my nose and close to my face.
I like the polarized versions because as an outdoorsman, I want to be able to have one pair of glasses for both hunting and fishing. The polarized lenses allow me to see into the water and spot fish. I have also found that when hunting in snow, polarized glasses like the UA Hook-D cut the glare better in the snow. Both of these glasses come with the UA Storm lens technology and are resistant to oil and salt water so they will last longer and a worthy investment. These glasses run around $99.00 for the non-polarized and $155.00 for the polarized Under Armor Hook-D pair.
Check them out at the Under Armor website. If you’re looking for a quality pair of glasses to protect your eyes while hunting and fishing, you cannot go wrong with any of the glasses in the UA Storm line up. Of course I suggest opting for the polarized so they can be dual purpose.
