Why you should wear sunglasses in the winter

November 07, 2014

 

Wearing sunglasses during the cold, dark winter days might seem redundant to some, but there are a couple of reason why you really should get yourself a pair and never leave home without them.

Firstly, and this is the boring and technical reason, weather is somehow unpredictable and the sun is pretty low causing glare and reflections on basically every singles surface on earth.
In this case you might want to consider using lighter lenses, more in particular gradient lenses that are perfect for any weather condition or, if you don’t like gradient lenses, we suggest to use warm color lenses that provide better contrast during overcast days.

Another annoying, an potentially dangerous, effect of the autumn and winter weather is that most surfaces are constantly wet and this cause huge amount of glare to hit your eyes and disturb vision. The best way to face this situation is using high quality polarized lenses that virtually remove all glare. This is particularly important when driving, so keeping a pair of polarized glasses in the car is always a good idea.
All lenses also require a good anti reflective coating on the inner surface, to prevent reflections caused by low sunbeams to bother you.

The Quiet Before offers a wide range of sunglasses with different types of lenses that are perfect for any situation.
Our gradient lenses range have different colors, such as Shadow Gradient, Purple Double Gradient, Blue Gradient, Brown Caramel Gradient, Brown Violet Gradient and lastly, Smoke Mustard Gradient, a Photochromic lens that gets darker as the day gets brighter, very useful if you want an all weather lens.

Shadow Gradient lenses are worth a mention because they are made of Mineral Glass, hence giving the highest optical features on the Market, and also feature a special treatment that enhance color perception and contrast, making them the go-to choice for overcast days.

If you’re considering solid color lenses, we can suggest our Brown lens, perfectly balanced between darkness and contrast or, in case you’re looking for polarized lenses, you can chose between Sienna Polar, Forest Polar, Night Mirror Polar and Copper Mirror Polar.

The second reason why you should wear sunglasses during the winter is because you look cool in your shades, so log in into our online store or go to your local authorized The Quiet Before dealer and get yourself a pair!
