This time of year can be frustrating—I leave the house with clear skies but by the time I get to the trailhead the clouds have rolled in. If I go without shades on cloudy days, my eyes dry out from the wind, but if I wear my sunglasses I struggle to see in the trees. This dilemma led me to Native Eyewear and their Sidecar sunglasses. These sporty shades come with two sets of lenses; I choose the green reflex for moderate to sunny days, and the sportflex for low-light situations. Both lenses are polarized, protect against long-term exposure to the sun, and I’m able to quickly swap them out in changing conditions. The frame is light, has great venting to prevent fogging, and features Cushinol nose and temple pads which provide grip during activities. Now I’m only frustrated when I forget my extra lenses. Available at Bob Ward's and Owenhouse Cycling. $150; nativeeyewear.com
