Uncooped Gear Review: Quattro Eyewear Yukon Sunglasses

created at: 11/08/2010

Finding versatile sport sunglasses can be a pain in the butt, as a lot of sunglasses perform well on the trail but don’t exactly fit in with regular society. I’ve sampled countless pairs of sunglasses that have drawn looks of envy from fellow outdoors enthusiasts when I’m out playing, but looks of concern and disdain when I’m anywhere else.

I've been riding (and running, and climbing, and hiking, and walking around) in a pair of Quattro's Yukon sunglasses for the last few months, and I haven't found a situation in which they'd be out of place. They weight around 12 ounces, their polarized polycarbonate lenses cut glare like a champ, and with their rubberized earpieces, they've stayed on my face through some gnarly trail work.

No only are they tough in the wild, but they also look pretty sharp when I'm at rest. They transition from the trail to a patio lunch without missing a beat.

A tough pair sunglasses, one that cuts glare and manages to stay on despite the bumps and jostles that come along with a trail run or a rough downhill mountain bike ride, but don't look at home in a European disco when paired with a polo shirt is tough to come by, but there are options. Finding a pair that you can afford, however, is a rare thing. You can find a pair of Yukons online for $50. Fifty bucks for a pair of sunglasses that you can wear no matter what you're doing.
