Disclaimer: Simon was given the Waykins Premium Green Ombra Sport Sunglasses featured in this article by Trendhim in exchange for our honest review. All words, images and opinions are my own and I have not been instructed what to write.
The perfect accessory for Summer
When I asked Simon to choose something from Trendhim, I must admit I did cringe slightly when he came back with the link to the Waykins Ombra Sport Sunglasses. Not because I didn’t like the sunglasses, on the contrary, I think they are really cool and knew they would suit him. Trendhim is based in Denmark but deliver globally and have a huge range of accessories for men.
I was more worried for the glasses and their safety in Simon’s care, he doesn’t have a good track record with sunglasses; most of them end up being sat on when he leaves them on his car seat or left behind for some lucky finder to pick up on their travels. Two weeks in and I am delighted to say they are still in one piece and have made it home with Simon each day.
The British weather must have known because we have had weeks of glorious sunshine which has helped Simon to acclimatise to wearing his sunglasses every day.
Waykins Green Ombra Sport Sunglasses
Simon spends a lot of time outdoors. If he isn’t out walking or camping with us, you’ll generally find him on one of his bikes or out running in the countryside. All of these pursuits require something which is comfortable and light enough to wear for a length of time but also strong, durable and most importantly, offers high protection against harmful UV rays.
- Rubber nose pads to hold their position
- TR90 frames and hinges – hypoallergenic, pliable and more robust than standard frames
- TAC polarised lenses
- Full UVA/UVB protection
- Protective storage pouch
- Gift box included
What does Simon think to his new Sunglasses?
Straight out of the box I really like the look and feel of the Waykins Green Ombra Sport Sunglasses. They are super lightweight which means no more headaches and pinching over the ears. I love the lenses for not being overly dark and reducing glare. They are especially comfortable for cycling and enable me to see the way ahead without having to worry about flies in the eyes.
Why are sunglasses important?
Personally I have always been a stickler for sunglasses and have worn them for as long as I can remember. This stems from my Mum who always insisted upon them and I am so grateful that she did because, at 44 years of age, I am still mostly wrinkle-free around the eyes. That’s not the only reason I wear sunglasses though. Do you know why sunglasses are important? Let me enlighten you . . .
- they help to prevent cataracts or clouding of the lens which can be caused by sun damage from excessive exposure to UV rays. This doesn’t just mean wearing your sunglasses on hot summer days, you should wear them on bright days throughout the year.
- UV rays can cause growths in the eye which could result in loss of sight or worse.
- UV rays can cause eye cancer.
Another thing to bear in mind is that buying cheap sunglasses can be just as detrimental as not wearing any sunglasses at all. If they do not have good UVA/UVB protection and are just ‘dark’ they will dilate your pupils allowing more of the harmful rays to penetrate your eyeballs.
