Disclaimer: I received a pair of France2 sunglasses from XX2i Optics to review as part of being a BibRavePro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews!
After having gone through some winter training this year, I find that I’m more of a summer training kind of gal. I had a blast training for the NYC marathon last year. There was more daylight and oh the WARMTH, I just loved the warmth (except when it was 80°F+). Unfortunately more daylight meant more sun and more sun meant my eyes were constantly blinded when I ran towards the sun. I would sometimes wear my YELP sunglasses from time to time, but they’d fog up so often that I would just go without them, which wasn’t the smartest idea since I’m pretty sure I blinded my eyes, but those are just the details. 🙂
The France2 sunglasses are amazing and I swear I will probably never go back to running without them. Never.
Fog free – When I run, I need to see where I’m going and if there’s fog build up, that’s not going to happen. The adjustability of the sunglasses prevents fog build up, which I appreciate immensely.
Headache free and bounce free – I’m prone to headaches whenever I wear glasses (Thank goodness for 20/20 vision) or have tight headbands so this is a HUGE issue for me. I’ve worn these sunglasses for hours and I haven’t developed headaches from them. Yay. It also helps that these sunglasses don’t bounce up and down when I run.
Durability – I’ve had these sunglasses for about a month now and they’re pretty durable despite their light weight (26 g). I was in a rush one day and I accidentally put them into my backpack along with my laptop and papers and when I took it out, it was good as new. Thank god. I would have been super sad had they broken.
Variety – I chose the Crystal Green Flash Lenses Green Tips to try out, but they have quite a variety of sunglasses if those don’t suit you. And if you’re not a fan of the color that the nose bridge and tips come in, your sunglasses will include nose bridges and tips in red and blue. My sunglasses even came with a little mini screwdriver if I wanted to change up the colors.
Affordability – Right now, they’re having a sale where you can get a pair of their sunglasses for 50% off using code MARCHBIBRAVE. This code is valid until 03/28/2017 and applies to everything on their site. MSRP for the France2s are $59.99 so you’d be getting an entire $30 off your purchase. Every pair also comes back with a 365 day money back guarantee and a lifetime frame and lens warranty – even against scratches. YAY.
Reflectivity – This is completely nitpicking and I’m super grateful for its ability to prevent reflect the sun, but I honestly could not take a photo without the reflection of the photographer (being me for selfies) in the photo. Other than that, I have no complaints. 🙂
So there you have it – my review of my first Bib Rave Pro product. Hooray! I could not have started off with a better one. Again, use code MARCHBIBRAVE on their site to receive 50% off anything. And feel free to ask me any questions regarding this product and have a happy rest of your weekend!
