    SHADES OF SUMMER - Find Your Zeal

    To create something truly meaningful, we each must become proficient explorers - prodding and pulling at the mystery until the thing that we had set out to find unravels before our very eyes. Mishaps and misadventure are simply a sign leading us ever closer on our quest to discover, and the only currency called for is time.

    Zeal Optics Ellume Challenge

    Zeal set out to put our ellume lenses to the test in our backyard of Boulder, CO. A quick stop on Pearl Street Mall and Chautauqua Park proved to be the perfect sun-drenched testing grounds to demonstrate the color-enhancing clarity and craftsmanship in our plant-based, polarized lenses. Don't take our word for it; see for yourself.

    ELDORADO by ZEAL Optics

    One of the most iconic legends of recorded time, the search for Eldorado has spawned some of mankind’s boldest explorations including the first navigation of the Amazon. Today, the legend is back and dripping in golden dreams of adventures with compadres both old and new. Just one view, and you’ll know the legend is real!

    Super Comfortable Sunglasses

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Great all around sunglasses. From fishing to driving these sunglasses are awesome. They cut glare and you can pick fish off the bottom of a river with ease. They are also stylish and super comfy. I have a larger face and head and these fit very well and look great.

    great pair of shades

    I am loving the polarization!

    I started with these on the PCT and haven't taken them off since!

    the Cadillac of shades

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    First of all I would like to thank Zeal and Backcountry.com for this opportunity, to test an amazing piece of gear.

    Now to get down to business! The Zeal Eldorado is an extremely well built pair of sunglasses, with great polarization and a stylish frame, that some people may find a bit too trendy. The frames are a great fit for someone with a medium to large head size such as myself.

    The lenses are great and have fantastic polarization! I have actually been using them for the first 300+ miles of my PCT thru hike and am loving them! I am able to block the sun and sand when necessary while still keeping a cool/fashionable look in town when I have a chance to hang out.

    The only thing that is both good and bad in my opinion is that the glasses can be heavy, especially after a full day of wearing them, I can usually feel them on my ears after a couple hours, as well as on my nose. But being a more casual pair of sunglasses they are perfect for around town and going to a BBQ or even a day hike.

    They sit on my face fantastically and haven't had any problems with them falling off if I bend over or lean forward.

    I would give them a 5 star rating but because of the weight and the over-sized lenses/frames they are not for everyone, but they definitely go fantastically with a heavy beard! ;-) I would highly recommend these to someone looking for a stylish pair of frames that have a great pair of lenses to compliment them.
