Cheap Sunglasses, bad company
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
I bought these glasses from my optometrist and the frames snapped within in a month. I emailed the company and they never bothered to respond. The lenses were also poor quality and gave every screen and window a rainbow sheen which was annoying.

Big thanks to Backcountry.com and Zeal Optics for giving me the opportunity to test and review the Tracker Sunglasses!
Over the past month I've been so STOKED and have thoroughly enjoyed the benefits of having a great pair of shades while not compromising my level of climbing and other outdoor activity. In fact, if there's one thing I can get through most in this review, it's that the Polarized Tracker help keep you outside, doing what ya love!
Zeal Optics is leading the pack on environmental responsibility with plant-based resins in both their E-llume lenses and Z-Rezin frames, becoming the first company in the world to remove the use of crude oil in sunglass production.
It's so rad having a pair of polarized shades that keep my eyes safe and refreshed (seriously, it feels like menthol being blown in your face), ProFlex lightweight frame gives ultimate comfort, and the overall design of the Tracker breathes durability and craftsmanship.
When climbing a wall for multiple days, having the e-llume polarized lens keep out 99% of glare and protecting my eyes form UVA, B and HEV light is incredible!
The color comes in sharp and clear, overcast days are amazing, and reflective water and rock won't destroy my eyes with snow blindness.
The Proflex rubber added strategically into the frame (around nose and temple) can withstand extreme temps, giving comfort and fit in a slip-free design. The look is sleek and not too flashy for the simple outdoors type. Overall shape is very fitting on my large head and face, never giving irritation or pain while wearing all day (12+ hours).
Bottom line, the Tracker can take it while you're battling the elements. Offering you great eye protection and a simple sporty look when out around town, Zeal Optics is putting legitimate work back into the earth and a solid partnership in the outdoor community.
*Update* While Summer slowly starts drifting into Fall, the Zeal Tracker shades continue to set the standard of polarized lenses with unbeatable SUN protection and ingenious classy design, built around comfortable toughness.
Since April, the Tracker have been with me on climbing trips, music festivals, and everyday use while lifeguarding. At the pool they reduced massive amounts of water glare and protected my eyes from the harsh sun while in the Neveda dessert.
The e-llume lenses are scratch free, with special thanks on the canvas sunglass pouch and cleaning cloth. Tough frame built with ProFlex has kept the glasses from ever slipping off.. yeah man, they're great shades! Super pleased with the Zeal Polarized Tracker.
Overcast but clear!
On overcast days the Tracker preformed great! Cutting glare and offering on point UVA/B/C light ray protection. While the sun was dipping in and out of the clouds that day, Yosemite Valley had one of the most stunning views of the Cathedrals and Sentinel.
All in a days work
Headed up the Big Stone! Tracker did a awesome job keeping down the glare of the white granite.
