I was given the opportunity to try out a pair of BEX Sunglasses. Now I know you may ask yourself why I would review sunglasses on a hunting blog and to you I would just have to say one thing; bowfishing. I walk the bank of the river or lake that I'm bowfhishing and seeing the fish sooner is key while bowfishing this way. The best lens to use while bowfishing, or fishing in general, is a polarized lens. This helps eliminate the reflection on the water allowing you to see beneath the surface and finding fish quicker.
When I opened the box and saw the pair of BEX Sunglasses, I was amazed at how light-weight they were. I tested out the ARSTYK II style of shades which are made of lightweight nylon polymer which allows for outstanding durability and flexibility. BEX has a whole line up of lightweight performance sunglasses made with either nylon or titanium. I know the big hype these days are minimalist and lightweight but with how lightweight these sunglasses are, it feels like they aren't even there.
I have been wearing these for awhile now and I can say that I have been very pleased with them. I have always had problems with sunglasses sliding down my face as I'm looking into the water with the sweat from the heat of the day. With this pair of sunglasses though I have very minimal slippage and they stay on my face. My wife has even taken them on her runs in the morning because they are so lightweight and they stay on her face.
They have now upgraded a little and the latest model is the ARSTYK III and this is the information from their website about them:
- Hinge: Reinforced nylon with stainless steel pin.
- Bridge: Nylon saddle bridge with comfort fit non-slip replaceable nose pads.
- Frame: Rimless sunglass featuring performance nylon bridge and temples.
- Shape: A mid-size rounded rectangular lens with generous coverage against the elements. Complimentary to a variety of face shapes.
- Lens: Available in Live Grey or Vibrant Brown BEX NYPO™ polarized lens with optical clarity. UVA, UVB, UVC and Blue Light protection.
Overall I would say that I was extremely pleased with these glasses. Will they make you a better fisherman or bowfisherman? No, but they are comfortable, lightweight, durable, and they stay on your face. They have some other great looking pairs of sunglasses as well as some great looking apparel. My advice, go check them out if you are wanting a new pair of sunglasses and you won't be disappointed.
