Why Your Eyes Hate You During The Winter

Everyone knows that when it's summertime and you're headed to the beach, you can't go without your shades. It's important to keep your eyes protected from those harmful UV rays when you're enjoying the outdoors. What you might not know is that it's even MORE important during the winter!

I know that sounds crazy, but it's true. 

  • Snow reflects almost 85% of the sun's UV rays
  • Cold wind drys out eyes
  • Glare from snow can make it difficult to see

Your eyes are more sensitive than you realize, and it's important to take care of them. It's easy to forget about them when you need to remember a scarf. 

We want to make sure we look out for you all year 'round, because adventure is whatever you make of it. We wouldn't want you to be limited to just the warm weather months if you have some activites that need to happen NOW! Living Your Adventure means different things to everyone, just make sure you keep your eyes in mind in every season.

Our Floatable shades are great for being around the water, but they're great when it's cold out too. Lightweight TPX frames don't get as cold as metal frames, and the Polarized lenses cut glare while making everything crystal clear.

If you ever need any help shopping our shades, drop us an email at info@kzgear.com! We'd be happy to help!
