BibRave Product Review: xx2i Australia Sunglasses

Disclaimer: I received a pair of xx2i Australia1 Sunglasses to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

As a runner, you know a good thing once you see it (or run it, try it, etc). When the chance came up to try another pair of xx2i sunglasses, I threw up my virtual hand to volunteer! I’ve tried the xx2i USA and the Hawaii’s and loved both pairs.

My Australia’s showed up in the mail a few weeks ago and was my first official piece of Bibrave Pro mail since moving to Spokane. We had the option of black, black/white and tortoise frames, and I went with the classic black (although the black and whites would have been a good color combination too!).

Decisions, decisions. @xx2i Australia or Hawaii today? #bibchat

The Australia sunglasses have a polarized lenses, which helps with adjusting to sunlight. It also has a light frame (easy to forget that you’re wearing them), but stay in place the entire time you’re running, running errands or out and about. Additionally, they come with a removal padded insert that can help with extra protection. The insert easily pops in and out (I tried placing and removing the insert a few times, without issue). I haven’t had a need for the insert, so I’ve not used it, but it seems a bit on the bulky side to me (short runner problems!).

I’ve had a chance to wear the Australias on a few runs out in Spokane, where it doesn’t feel like death outside. They really stay in place well and don’t slide around, even without the insert. I’ve also had no issue with lense fogging and the the polarized lenses are spot on! I’m a huge fan of the way xx2i incorporates the light frames and the durability into their products, it really makes them easy to wear and ‘forget’ that you have anything on

Neighborhood run with my @xx2i! Might as well take advantage of heat for @honolulumarathon! #bibchat

What’s even better about these lenses?? 8K optical technology. In English, it means that you can still get a clear image of what you’re looking at, even with the glasses on (at least that’s what I get out of it :-)).

Taking a rest day or going out and running errands? Feel free to take the Australias with you. They can double as a casual pair of sunglasses that give you the cool casual feel around town (and make people jealous that you have a pair and they don’t). They hold up in the 90+ degree heat in Spokane well and have a good fit to them!

The specifics: they retail for $124.99 and have a lifetime warranty (because xx2i is awesome like that). Also, you get 365 days to try them out and if you’re aren’t satisfied (but I promise you will be), you can return them, no questions asked. And because we love you, use xx2irocks for 50% off (I mean come on, why wouldn’t you want to try them!!).

Join use on 8/16 at 9pm EST/6PST for #bibchat with xx2i! I promise they’ll be around to answer questions and to help you find the best pair of sunglasses for you!
