Whether you’re a rambler, hiker, climber, or just a simple dog walker, finding the right pair of specs for wearing comfortably everyday is important.
Active women need glasses that can live up to their busy lifestyle. If you’re constantly on the go, quality and performance will often trump style (although we shouldn’t have to sacrifice, right?).
Being ‘active’ is a lifestyle choice that comes in many different forms. It’s not just athletes, runners and pro cyclists who need special specs to keep them on track with their training; everyday people need high performing glasses too.
Busy mums who juggle school runs and dog walking, country folk who love a ramble in the woods, explorers who are always on the move, or nature spotters who prefer to spend their time out in the wilderness. For all of these everyday outdoor activities, features such as lightweight design, flexibility, a comfortable nose bridge, good fit and durability all become essential.
If you love to spend your time in the great outdoors, finding the right pair of frames can make your life so much easier.
After all, who wants glasses that fall down your face mid-hike? Or specs that start to nip at your temples after a few hours of mountain trekking?
