Best 32 Sunglasses of 2024: Stylish, Adventure-Ready Sunglasses For Men and Women.

Ranked by Quality, Affordability, and Sustainability

We rank each pair of sunglasses for the best overall value for the outdoor enthusiast. We look at lens quality, frame quality, sustainability, and price. We selected each pair to test based on their coolness factor, so only the most stylish sunglasses made this list.

We need sunglasses that are up to the challenge of an adventurous life. The problem is that cheap sunglasses scratch and break quickly while specialty sunglasses are too expensive or aren’t versatile enough for different activities.

This creates a viscous cycle of buying cheap pairs every month or hesitating to adventure in expensive shades.

Given the huge industry, there are no shortage of quality sunglasses, but beware, they are not all equal.

In this blog we are going to explore the best sunglasses and highlight what makes each pair special and then rank them based on their value (quality and price).

Here are the top 32 sunglasses of 2023:

Choosing the right pair of sunglasses for you

When it comes to choosing the best sunglasses, the truth is, they are not one size fits all. While every brand offers something different, they all mostly provide the same basic functions and yet describe their features differently.

This makes it a challenge to get what’s best for you. But here are a few features that every brand on the list will offer:

  • 100% UV protection
  • Polarized and Non-Polarized options
  • Quality Hinges
    • some are built-in, some are metal hinges.
  • Quality control-
    • Top quality brands all have quality control measures in place, unlike some of the Chinese manufacturers you will find selling on Amazon.
  • Tinted lenses
  • Blue light blocking
  • Different lens colors
  • Different frame colors
  • Men and women styles
  • Nose Pads make for a better feel and fit
  • Unique Styles

 

We’ll look at the following criteria to help assess your options and help you make the best choice.

  • Cost 💰: How much you should expect to pay
  • Frame Material: ⭐️
  • Lens Material: ⭐️
  • Face Shape: What face shape is best for this style
  • Fit: what size noogin we looking at here
  • Eco-Friendly: Make sure the company cares about our environment
  • Parent Company: We like to buy from small companies
  • Home Office: We like to buy local

 

A quick rundown on how cost was scored:

  • $0-$65 – 4 points
  • $66-$110 – 3 Points
  • $111- $195 – 2 Points
  • $196- $299 – 0 Points

 

A quick rundown on how the frames and lenses were scored:

  • Lens Scoring:
    • Glass/Crystal Rating⭐️- 3.5/5
      • Glass is always thought to be the best because of its high clarity, but its not on this list because it scores very low in durability because it is just too easy to break.
    • Nylon Rating⭐️ - 4.5/5
      • Very high performance in durability, scratch resistance, and clarity
    • Trivex Rating⭐️ - 4/5
      • Very high durability and clarity but low scratch resistance
    • Polycarbonate Rating⭐️ - 3/5
      • Very high durability, low clarity, low scratch resistance
      • If you do buy polycarbonate lens, make sure they come with a scratch resistant coating on them.
    • CR39 Rating⭐️ - 3/5
      • Very high clarity and durability but low scratch resistance.
    • View our lens scoring guide here.
  • Frame Scoring:
    • Bio-Resin TR-90⭐️- 5/5
      • Same properties as TR-90. Lightweight and very high durability, flexibility, comfort, and heat resistance. Bio-resin is also eco-friendly.
      • Often referred to as Bio-Based Nylon
    • TR-90⭐️ - 4.5/5
      • Lightweight and very high performance in durability, flexibility, comfort, heat resistance.
      • TR-90 is often referred to as nylon, or nylon-based. It is a Swiss engineered thermoplastic.
    • Acetate⭐️- 3/5
      • Not as lightweight as plastic or TR-90, and not as durable. Acetetate is more widely used in high fashion sunglasses, and not necessarily for adventures.
    • Recycled Plastic⭐️ - 2/5
      • While still being lightweight and fairly durable, it is not as durable, or strong as TR-90 or the TR-90 Bio Resin.

Now lets dive in. This list is sorted by best value when it comes to sports like hiking, mountain biking, etc because that’s what we care about. We don’t want the cheapest and we sure as hell don’t want the most expensive. We want the best sunglasses at the best price.

The Phoenix comes in at number 1 on this list because of the high-quality materials, low cost and the added bonus of a sustainable product.
