With 4th of July right around the corner, it’s time to celebrate your opportunity to adventure anywhere you want, any time you want.

Whether floating the river or barbecuing at the beach, chances are, you won’t be celebrating Independence Day inside. So, take advantage of the sun and explore the great outdoors with 3 lenses sure to boost your 4th of July adventures.

MOUNTAIN

Escape the heat of the city and spend the day marveling at the wild beauty the USA is proud to call its own. A few days camping in the trees or a day hike or trail ride before you head back down for an evening barbeque is best complimented by a pair of Emerald Green lenses.

Blocking 82% of visible light, they’re perfect for brilliant sunshine and all-day wear. With 100% UV protection, they’ll ensure the extra intense rays at higher elevations won’t affect you, and the coating of the MirrorShield® aids in reflecting glare that may be coming off that mountain lake. The warm rose tint can handle full-on exposure, but also brightens your view in shaded areas. They provide a light, refreshing view so that when the sun sets, you’ll be ready to keep the festivities going whether you head back into town for fireworks or gather round the fire for s’mores.

RIVER

July heat can be a scorcher, and an ideal way to spend the holiday is floating the river with friends—whether kicking back in tubes or paddling along in a canoe, kayak, or raft, you’ll need something to ward off the heavy glare coming off the water.

Polarized Plasma Purple lenses allow 18% of visible light through, making them dark enough to stave off brilliant sunlight, but light enough to provide sight of the river bottom and details in the current. The warm neutral tint offers a comforting wash of the surroundings, filtering out the blue light that dominates water settings and enhancing contrast. The mirrored coating and polarized filter block glare, reducing any potential eye fatigue or headaches so you can float all day in comfort and get the most out of the holiday.

BEACHSIDE

Nothing quite exemplifies July festivities like fireworks over the water and bonfires on the beach. But before the sun goes down for the evening, and you’re soaking up the full force of the sun’s rays, don’t forget to protect your eyes from the powerful blast of UV and blinding light coming off the water and sand.

Stealth Black lenses block 92% of visible light, providing ultimate comfort in extremely bright conditions, and the neutral view won’t diminish any of the vibrant blues and greens of the seaside setting. The hydrophobic coating on the lens causes water to bead up and roll off, and the scratch-resistant coating ensures they’re tough enough to withstand the harsh salt water and sand. Go find your surfboard or spend the day kiteboarding and know your eyes will stay fresh for the evening fireworks.

If you’re more inclined to show off your love of the stars and stripes in obvious patriotic colors, then you’re in luck. With Titanium, Ice Blue, and Fire Red lenses, you can declare your pride of the grand old flag loud and clear.

However you choose to celebrate the 4th, here's to hoping it's filled with adventures.
