Stylish enough to be worn everyday, yet technical enough to escort you on your morning run, the Roka Vendee Sunglasses are a quiver killer that you'll want constantly available. From their C3 lenses that have coatings to resist reflections, abrasions, moisture, fingerprints, and more, to their ultra-lightweight nylon frames that minimize facial fatigue, this is a modern piece that can keep up with you. The frame doesn't sacrifice style to shave ounces, and even with its double-bridge design it weighs in at less than an ounce. Geko nose and temple pads keep the light weight from letting the shades bounce around on your face, without squeezing or gripping so they're comfortable for all-day wear.
- Stylish sunnies with a technical construction
- C3 lenses are ballistic tested for impact-resistance
- Coatings resist abrasions, moisture, and fog
- Lightweight frame reduces fatigue
- Geko nose and temple pads secure the position
Better than expected!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Very light weight. Lighter than my Julbo sunglasses. The fit is good for medium to small faces. Can barely feel them on my face. Will be using them on a multi day trek this weekend. Hopefully the lens survive the wind and blowing dust.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bought these on a whim and surprisingly love them more than any pair of Oakleys I've ever owned! Took it on a 3 day cycling tour and they were light, didn't budge or slide, didn't fog (THIS IS THE BEST!), were super comfortable, no distortion, no fatigue from looking through them and all around fantastic!! My new favorite glasses! :)
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought these glasses while they were on sale. I thought they would be an ok pair that I would wear every now and again. I was wrong. These have currently replaced my costa feel mar and shady ray glasses. These things also have an awesome grip on the nose and ears so there’s no stopping off. Oh and don’t forget that they are perfect New Orleans Saints colors. Black & Gold! Who Dat.
