I never have run with sunglasses before trying these out. This is mainly because I don't need something else that I have to deal with all the time. I don't want something that I have to keep from bouncing, keep in place, keep clean or anything that will distract from the run. All that being said, I was ready to give these Ryders a try.
The first time I wore them my daughter Payton and I were headed out for a trail run. As we were driving to the trails she said they looked cool and she even had to try them on. Now notice I didn't say that she said I was cool, but that the glasses were cool. She stopped telling me I was cool 5 years ago when she was 10 years old.
When I first took off with them on they bounced a little bit and I was starting to not like them right away, however a couple minutes into my run they settled down and I didn't even feel them anymore. They were very comfortable and even though the run was 10 miles through very bouncy technical trails they didn't bounce anymore or even start to chafe or anything, they just did what they were supposed to - protect my eyes.
A couple of weeks later my daughter and I were driving to another park to run some trails and I asked her if I looked cool. She quickly stopped me and told me that she had offered it the first time, and that is where it would end. She added it just was not cool to go fishing for the same compliment again.
The pair I tested are shown above. They were the Gloss Black TR90 frame with Anti-slip nose and temple pads. The lens is a Photochromic-Polarized Grey Polycarbonate with 100% UV Protection and a variable 32%-12% VLT tint. The medium fit was perfect for my head, proving that I am not as big headed as my family tends to believe.
