Zungle Viper

When the weather is glorious and you have a decent tune playing in your ears you can feel on top of the world, even when you are walking to somewhere hideous like the DVLA, the Viper sunglasses from Zungle cut out the cumbersome combination of headphones and sunglasses or earphones with their dangling wires by turning the sunglasses themselves in headphones. The Viper uses bone conduction and Bluetooth to allow you to listen to your music wirelessly but at the same time keeps you connected to the world around you.

District Vision Nagata Running Glasses

Tom Daly (not the guy in Speedos who flings himself off diving boards) and Max Vallot created District Vision in 2015 after a series of life-changing events caused them to discover running and meditation, not necessarily two things you would assume have a lot in common. However, when you consider both practices involve focusing on your breath and body, being fully present in the moment and usually leave you feeling energised and clear headed (only one should leave you covered in sweat and with shin splints).

Bolle Slate

The Slate sunglasses come in five different designs and we received the Polarized Offshore Blue, featuring (unsurprisingly), polarised lenses that align light rays from the sun, which prevents you from getting dazzled whether you are driving, out on the water or simply chilling in the garden.

Tifosi Synapse - Light Night Lens

Brought onto the market in spring 2017, the Tifosi Synapse sunglasses have a sport lens cut, making them versatile and suitable for any type of sport activity. The Synapse’s feature ‘Tifosi Light Night Fototec’ lenses, which are designed to adjust to changing light conditions. Packed full of technology these glasses have a 30g frame that is very comfortable to wear; you can easily forget they are there!

Bollé 6th Sense Sunglasses

The 6th Sense sunglasses are without a doubt the most technical thing I have ever had on my face, although for the majority of the time I would forget I was even wearing them. They performed really well against the dazzling low light you get this time of year, they reduced glare and were extremely comfortable to wear with an adjustable nose piece that can be moulded to fit any nose and weigh in at an impressively light 28g.
