If you find yourself shielding your eyes from the sun on the trail a bit too often, why not consider some of the following great Oakley sunglasses for backpackers? Oakley sunglasses are an outdoors staple. They’ve long been the top choice for people who frequently enjoy outdoor activities like cycling, snowboarding and camping, probably because they’re not only stylish, but they’re extremely functional. Oakley designs their sunglasses to protect eyes that are exposed to hours of sunlight, but when looking for the absolute best if you’re backpacking (whether it’s across Europe or the Rocky Mountains) you’ll need to consider comfort, durability and protection.

Oakley Pit Bull Sunglasses

Oakley’s Pit Bull Sunglasses have lenses that are striking reflective shade of yellow, but it’s not just for fashion. The lenses contain a coating that reduce glare and balance light transmission. The lenses extend peripheral view because of their curved design, which is great for traveling with a group of people or across dangerous terrain. In addition, this model has 100 percent UV-filtering and is extremely lightweight for all day wear.

Jupiter Squared Sunglasses

Jupiter Squared sunglasses are designed for long wear, and if you’re backpacking, it’s a safe bet that you’ll be wearing your sunglasses until the sun goes down. The frame is stress-resistant, meaning that if you throw it into your bag, it won’t easily break, and it has three-point fit which eliminates pressure points and pain that come from all day wear. It also filters out 100 percent of UVA, UVB, UVC rays.

Polarized Holbrook Sunglasses

Holbrook sunglasses are a classic, simple style. They’re all black and have a basic square frame, which means they’re universally flattering. In addition to looking great, the lenses filter out all types of UV rays and are completely polarized (they eliminate 99 percent of glare). They’re lightweight for all-day wear and are great for perscription lenses.
