Amy Sacks Dylan Frames : Sophisticated Sun Protection

I want sunglasses I can wear on a long road trip that will also work for a day hike or for just lounging around the pool.

To my surprise, I found the glasses I was looking for in the fashion department. Portland-based designer Amy Sacks makes several styles of sophisticated, urban frames. Many of the frames, including the Dylan, are unisex, and all of the frames are available as sunglasses, reading glasses, or sunglass readers. You can also put prescription lenses in Amy Sacks frames.

I've really enjoyed wearing my Dylan sunglasses because they're lightweight, but feel very solid. The spring hinges are very sturdy, and I like how the stay in place no matter what I'm doing.

The Dylan frames are for small to medium sized faces. The lenses are each about the size of two quarters, so they're more retro cool that glamour-sized. They're ideal for an outdoor guy like me who wants protection and enjoys looking good but doesn't want to attract attention with flashy spex.

The glasses have a scratch-resistant coating that provides 100% UV protection. The polycarbonate lenses themselves are tinted gray and somewhat transparent from the outside.

Available in nine colors. As readers, they come in magnifications from 1.0 to 3.0 (or no magnification if you want them just to look smarter).

Bottom Line: The Dylan Noir sunglasses are cool enough for any occasion and durable enough for my outdoor pursuits.-- C.H. (April 09)
