Julbo Dirt Sunglasses Review

Julbo Dirt Sunglasses Review

in Optics by Bill Lobe

The Precarious blend of Performance and Fashion- Julbo does it

I am a sunglasses freak, an addict, some would consider it a problem. I don’t. It’s my favorite accessory. I’m not into jewelry, watches, “mandals,” or high fashion. I just learned what couture means. I don’t like to be without at least a couple choices for shades. And I’m picky, very picky. Some shades look good but fall off your face while playing hopscotch, others grip your face with a ferocity that would satisfy Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Some look good, but fog up while you’re riding, or give you a headache after a half an hour. Finding one pair of shades that satisfy all the necessary criteria is a personal grail quest–some of us will never find them, even though we know they’re out there.

Ryders Eyewear Defcon Sunglasses Review

Ryders Eyewear Defcon Sunglasses Review

in Optics by Carl H. Martens

Ryders Eyewear describes the Defcon sunglasses as, “A lightweight, aggressive, full-rimmed style with thin tips for comfort and great temple pads for superior grip. This medium-small fitting style is great for active, endurance sports, or anytime you want to look great.”  I couldn’t have said it any better myself.  That description is spot-on.  Something else that’s spot-on…the price.  At just $39.99 the Defcon is a great pair of sunglasses that anyone can afford.  There you have it…our shortest review on ubOutdoors.com ever!

What’s that?  You want more?  Alright, but don’t be upset after reading when you realize you could have gotten everything you needed out of the paragraph above.

We are very excited to be receiving products from Cotton Carrier. Specifically, the Cotton Carrier Camera Vest and Cotton Carrier Carry-Lite belt design system. The Camera Vest is designed for “extreme action” sports and can be used in many active situations. The Carry-Lite belt design system, which can carry the any size of camera and lens, but is stated to be the “light duty action” version for people that are not as active due to the lack of stability that is inherent in the Camera Vest.
