One thing I know I will be leaving home: my running sunglasses. I have a pair of Smith sunglasses I wear when I run. But with an evening start time, I don't think I will need them. Instead I'll be packing my awesome new(ish) Margaritaville shades.
Usually I wear a pair of $12 sunglasses I got at Aldo. I haven't had a pair of sunglasses that cost more than $25 for a really long time (other than the ones I wear running). Pretty much since I had kids. Between the little people at my house and my own klutziness, I can't bring myself to spend more. Then Margaritaville/Jimmy Buffet sent me a pair of their Calypso sunglasses.
They are awesome. Here are a few things that make them great:
Margaritaville has a few pairs that look like they would be great to wear running, and they all have rubber grips and nose pads to keep them in place. So if you want to be cool like me, you WANT a pair of Margaritaville sunglasses. And they are 50 percent off right now for the holidays, so don't waste time heading to the web site to load up on sunglasses for everyone on your holiday shopping list (including yourself, of course).
MPT (Margaritaville® Polarized Technology) nylon lenses (Love Polarized lenses! They make the colors so pretty.)
100% UV A/B Protection (No crows feet!)
Heat Sculpted Polymer frame (Durable. Back to that having kids thing.)
SunGrip rubber nose pads (Stay in place. Gotta love that.)
SunGrip rubber temple tip insert (No headaches. My least favorite thing about most sunglasses is that my head starts to hurt after wearing them for very long.)
Spring hinges (Yay!)
Integrated Margaritaville® Leash System (Haven't used this yet, but it might come in handy someday.)
Island Style details (Refer to the pictures. Focus on the sunglasses, not the goofy grins.)
Ships with custom Margaritaville® Case and microfiber cleaning bag (Almost as awesome as the glasses.)
*Fine Print: I was provided one pair of Margaritaville Eyewear in exchange for my unbiased review.
