On our end, also by the way we have opticians who are trained, friendly, knowledgeable, whod, love to help you get it right, the first time, so you can always reach out to us and we can help you alright well lets get into this. First up. We have the nike its the nike dash, so this is the one that i mentioned. Doesnt have any grip. One thing and in terms of grip, is in grip material. It doesnt have any grip, uh material, no rubberized material, no grip material either on the nose or in the temples. Unfortunately, however, in the temples they did design, this kind of textured temple tip design that does help to directionalize moisture, helps to keep moisture away from that area, a little better where it makes contact so that it can do a better job of gripping on your head. But i mean it with its high tension, hinges and with proper fit and with the straight back temple design and the way it hugs the face, shouldnt be a concern about these guys slipping off anyway.
Just something to be aware of this does have a proper eight base wrap, so it is a nice wrapped lens really good. Every time i look at the dash. This is actually a part of a family of frames that nike makes there are two other frames of an increasing size. This is the smallest one, its just a really good, straightforward, wrapped sunglasses. If youre like, i just need a good wrap sunglass, i dont even think about it. I just wanted to be wrapped. I wanted to be a sunglass boom. Nike dash thatd be a great option for you very lightweight, durable, nylon frame, material, very impact resistant lenses. They are polycarbonate, even in the non prescription version you can get those nike max optics in the non prescription variant. If you do need prescription, then youre going to be looking at us and we can help you with our sport optimized lenses, which we have an amazing collection, assortment a bunch of different options of lenses for you that are fantastic and again. If you have questions about that, our opticians would love to help you. So this is a really straightforward frame, theres, not too much more to say about it than that. This has an sfw of 121 millimeters, which lands you at a mens extra small and a womens small Music. Next up we have an oakley, and this is the turbine xs, really what they did if youre familiar with the turbine, if youre familiar with oakley, they just made it smaller its pretty great everything that you had in the turbine.
You have the turbine xs, just in a smaller form factor nice, obviously o matter frame material, extremely lightweight, durable, very, very flexible, as you can see, grip all over the place, lots of grip on the inside of the temple where it touches the side of your head. As well as where it touches your nose in the nose piece, so theyre unobtainium grip material, which is going to help to keep it actually grippier, even as you sweat, even as it gets wet it doesnt uh actually slide more. It grips even better thanks to their three point fit system. You dont have to stress about how they fit on you. You just put them on and then you get to forget about them when it comes to lenses on these guys. Their prism lens tech is still one of our absolute favorites, but whats cool. Is that its also available in prescription? You can get that prism. Lens tech in prescription, as well when it comes to fit this, has an sfw of 125 millimeters which lands you at a mens small or a womens small to medium Music. Next up we have a native. This is the native penrose. This has been making it into a quite a few lists. Recently native is a really cool brand theyre, a little more in touch with uh being eco friendly, and they use their bio based plant resin frame material, which is it looks really good. It feels really good.
They do this cool, like uh tri, laminate frame construction, which gives you some cool options in terms of color ways and everything uh. Here you can see like white in the middle and then more of an amber on the inside and then a tortoise on the outside. Really cool kind of fun features that you can get thanks to that. It does feel really good quality as well, so its its nice, its a frame material as a free, its a its a company with a conscience really is what youre getting here when it comes to. You know being eco friendly, a little more of a square lens design in this they do have a keyhole nose bridge, which i tend to like tends to be a little more versatile in terms of bridge fit. It does have grip on the temple. It has grip in the nose and it is another good hydrophilic grip material which is going to help to grip better, even as it gets wet. You get a non prescription, theyre premium polarized native lenses, which is pretty cool, thats a standard for them in prescription. They dont have any authentic lens lab option, but again you can count on us were going to take care of you with our sport optimized lenses. This has an sfw of 125 millimeters, which lands at a mens small or woman small to medium Music. Next up we have another nike. This is the maverick small, so this is actually a part of a whole family of frames that they call the maverick its a maverick family.
So there is a classic maverick, so kind of like the turbine. This is a classic maverick. Just the smaller down version, smallered down version yeah its smaller Laughter. It is a six base frame so a little more of an everyday uh kind of appeal to it. This is probably the most uh athleisure frame, i would say on this desk. It does lend itself well to all around everyday use, but it looks really good performs really well, even in more aggressive athletic use. Lots of grip on the inside of the temple here extremely flexible, injected nylon frame material, especially here at the ends of the temple tips. They do have this bridge design. It is this. They call it a floating bridge, design, ventilated floating bridge design. I always mention it when i look at these frames because its a good concept – it is a good design for people for sure, but not for everyone. So it is more of a saddle style bridge which i always love, because it gives you more dispersion of weight because theres more surface area but theres also more surface contact, so even better grip, all good things, but its a little more rigid it isnt. Quite as forgiving in terms of fit so, if youve had trouble with bridge fit in the past, keep that in mind, if youre looking at this frame favorably, because that might be a concern, otherwise a really really solid frame when it comes to sizing.
This has an sfw of 130 millimeters and last but not least, we have the maui jim k, and i – and this is an interesting addition, because it is the largest frame on this table, maybe usually just by the sfw alone. I would think a little outside of the range of a small fit, but thanks to the shape, i think this definitely still suits a smaller face. Really well. A round lens is a little more forgiving. I think that a larger face can wear a round lens, even if it looks a little smaller, because thats kind of the look and a larger face and a smaller face, on the other hand, can wear maybe even a little bit larger around, and it still looks Good, this is another six base lens curvature, so it is definitely a frame that will suit you very well for all around use, but definitely really well, while youre hiking the trails, it has an adjustable nose piece, which is the only option on this desk with that Option and i love it, and it is very uncommon to find in a plastic frame as well or a nylon is a specific type of plastic but ill get it in a second. But it does have adjustable nose pads, which is uncommon, and i love it. But its so crazy lightweight. That is the absolute first thing. You notice, when you hold this frame its just like youre holding nothing, so you put them on and you can totally forget that theyre there they have traditional pin hinges because that nylon material is so flexible.
You dont have to stress about it and, of course, were talking maui, so we have to talk about their amazing lenses. Their polarized plus two lens technology is fantastic. Uh. You really cant beat it. I usually dont push polarized lenses too terribly hard for hiking. I will say that theres something about the quality of mauis lenses. That is amazing, so amazing that i still think that polarized, if youre talking polarized plus two, is great on the trails you are potentially going to, and i dont hear this nearly as much with maui but the problem with polarize the idea behind us not recommending polarized Too much for hiking is because polarized lenses usually are very dark, but also it is that, because of the polarizing filter, it can affect your depth perception, which makes it a little bit difficult if youre walking the trails to read the topography. Uh not really the case with the polarized plus two lens technology, an amazing frame here, and definitely one that i can endorse. I also really like round as you can tell, and so i think, thats, a very cool kind of maybe vintage is the right word for it style, uh, thatll, look good on and off the trails, but amazing. So this has an sfw of 134 millimeters. Like i mentioned a little on the larger side, but i still think very uh appropriate for smaller faces Music that wraps it up for our top picks for hiking sunglasses for smaller faces.
