[dropcap]N[/dropcap]ew from Guideline Eyegear is their Alpine polarized sunglasses. These reasonably priced shades ($59.95) offer crisp optics, lightweight, rugged construction and refined style with good wraparound coverage.
I have been sporting these glasses for most of the flats season out here on eastern Long Island and have been really pleased. The wrapping design keeps side light from entering. They offer great coverage. The brown tint is perfect for moderate to bright light conditions. They are comfortable on my nose and ears with no noticeable face or eye fatigue.
To keep the cost reasonable on these shades, they have utilized quality polycarbonate lenses and very basic, yet strong, non-flexing hinges. Rubber nose pads keep them from slipping down in sweaty conditions. Finally, the Crystal Green frames are great looking and original. Guideline offers four color choices on the Alpine’s frames/lens combinations making it easier to find the ones that are just right for you.
