July 13th, 2013 By   

You’re probably already well aware that the best outdoor sports equipment, if not already in your gear shed, backpack or truck bed, can be found in a log cabin-style gear store on the northern edge of Lake Tahoe. But did you know about our impressive selection of the best sunglasses for sports and everyday use? Here’s the inside scoop on what’s hanging out behind the protective glass display cases at Tahoe Mountain Sports:

Switch Vision – Magnetic Interchangeable Lens System

Switch Vision created the world’s first eyewear with a Magnetic Interchangeble Lens system – for unparalleled convenience, speed and ease of use: an idea born of necessity. When you bring the magnetic lenses close to the sunglasses’ frame they literally jump into place. These sunglasses allow athletes to choose the perfect lens for any lighting condition to achieve the best vision. And yes, prescription lenses are available through custom order. You may think you’ve seen this magnetic system before… are you familiar with Anon ski and snowboard goggles? Switch wanted to focus all their energy on sunglasses, so instead of also creating goggles they sold their magnetic interchangeable lens design to Anon Optics.

One Response to “Sports & Lifestyle Sunglasses from Smith, Oakley, Switch and Sunskis”

  1. […] Why wear sunglasses when the sun’s not bright? The same reason you still wear sunscreen at altitude, even on grey days: protection from UV rays! But I have more reasons to wear low-light lenses when it’s not bright outside: 1) Bikes (and dogs) ahead of you on the trail kick up dust, making it difficult, and dangerous, to maneuver between trees and rocks, 2)  Branches and bugs you encounter on the trail can ruin your run/ride. A scratched cornea was the worst pain I’ve ever experienced, 3) I’m excited to use these for backcountry touring in winter. Before the sun rises, when the wind is howling and you’re working hard enough that wearing goggles means overheating, I know I’ll be stoked on my Switch low-light lenses. Then when the sun does come up I can quickly swap them out for the brights without having to stop skinning. Click here for more information about Switch Magnetic Sunglasses. […]
