Review of the XX2i Australia1 8K polarized sport lenses

Disclaimer:  I received the XX2i Australia1 sunglasses to review as part of being a BibRave Pro.  Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave to review, find and write race reviews.

I'm starting to feel a bit spoiled in the sunglasses department;  not that I'm complaining.  I do love my sunglasses and have used each pair uniquely.   My latest pair of sunglasses that I've been able to test are the Australia1 Polarized Sport Sunglass.  I elected to try out the Matte Tortoise color because I felt that they were very feminine looking.  They are even prettier in person and I've received many compliments on them! 

I have been wearing sunglasses for as long as I can remember so my eyes really require a great sunglass for protection!  These are a fantastic option for polarization because they offer 8K polarization!  I never squint and have clear lense clarity.  This particular model has blue lenses in them. 

I have worn these lenses running, biking, swimming, boating, hiking, paddle-boarding and gardening.  I have sweat, jumped, bent-over;  just about any activity and I've never felt that I would lose these glasses.  This may sound silly, but I place my sunglasses on the top of my head A LOT!  If they are not on my eyes, they are on my head.  Never once did these babies slip out of place and they never fell on the floor.  They fit my head snugly but yet the feel very comfortable.  

What makes these sunglasses unique are two features.  First, is the removable padded insert that fits onto the lenses.  These are the first sunglasses by XX2i with this great addition.  This pad protects against additional elements when outdoors!  I would imagine they would be a mountain bikers dream for the extra dust that is kicked up on the trails!   These glasses also include an interchangeable temple arm / strap system so there are no worries about slipping during intense activities!  See my photos below where I demonstrate the padded insert and the interchangeable strap! 

These are the first pair of sunglasses by XX2i that are available with prescription.  How cool is that?  Also, did I mention that ANY sunglasses purchase with XX2i has a lifetime guarantee?  The shipping and service is top-notch.  If you are an adventurous person with an active lifestyle these are the perfect pair for you!

  1. Those glasses look awesome! My Smith optics have interchangeable lenses too. I cannot wear sunglasses while running, tho. Weird, I know.

    1. These are definately one of my favorites from XX2i. Very comfy and I've gotten tons of compliments for sure!
