Great sunglasses for active pursuits!

It was time to get new shades, and I needed them to cover the following bases: runnng, mountain biking, SUP. So, they had to stay put when sweating, offer really good visibility in various conditions, and had to be bombproof. Looked at a bunch, then ordered the Splitjackets from Backcountry (I like to buy stuff here because of easy returns). The glasses did not disappoint. I used them for all three activities in the first week. They stay put, offered great clarity with both sets of lenses. I feel like I get great peripheral vision in them, and they don't move no matter how hard I'm moving. Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Yes!! Now, I need to order some more lenses....

Oh, and I'm a woman with a fairly angular face, small nose bridge, high cheekbones. These fit great.
