Zeal Optics Tenacity : Streamlined Sun Protection

It can be nearly impossible to find one pair of sunglasses to fulfill all my needs. I have sporty-type glasses that fit well under a helmet, stay in place when I get sweaty, and have technically infused lenses for excellent visibility. . .and they're ugly as sin.   Then I have stylin' glasses that look good when I am out about town, that I put nicely in their case when not in use, careful not to scratch them, but they bounce around and slide off my nose when I run.   Now, my spex, the Zeal Tenacity with polarized lenses, bridges that gap and works perfectly from town to trail.

I love the versatile, flattering shape that is slightly square but still streamlined enough to be unpretentious, as well as the retro design on the temples. These frames fit close to my face, but have an adjustable nose piece for when I need a little more breatheability. The rubberized nose pads are comfy all day without pinching, and they even have a little bit of traction for when I break a sweat.  

The rubberized areas on the ends of the temple pieces also keep the glasses from bouncing around. They also have built-in holes through which to thread a Croakies sunglass laynard. Both features come in handy when I'm out on my kayak.

The best thing about the glasses are the lenses. These polarized shades are a smoky brown color that reduces the glare without changing the colors of the world.  The lenses are designed to adapt to a variety of conditions so that I can wear one pair all day long. No more lens swapping. Even better, the glasses come with a lifetime warrantee.

The Tenacity frame is one of six styles in which Zeal is using 30% recycled nylon. This frame is available in five colors. This is a medium size frame that will accept prescription lenses.

Zeal has a wide variety of sunglasses and goggles for the fashionable athlete and the athletic fashionista.

Bottom LIne: When I only have room for one pair of glasses in my pack for the day, these will perform on the trail and look equally at home at an afternoon BBQ.--B.F. (Mar 09)
