Disclaimer: I received the XX2i Hawaii 1 sunglasses to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (Ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!
First off, I have been a BibRave Pro since the beginning of the year. Since then, I have had the privilege of meeting many other runners through social media and through the BibRave Pro program. I have a couple of races coming up that I will be representing BibRave at and have had the opportunity to try out a lot of new products (and pass some discounts on to you as well). If you are a runner, enjoy connecting with other runners through social media and at races, apply to be a BibRave Pro
Over the past month, I have been testing out the XX2i Hawaii1 sunglasses. If you have followed my blog since I became a Pro, you know that these are the 3rd pair of XX2i sunglasses that I have tested. The first was USA1 followed by Bermuda1 (casual pair). I have been very pleased with the XX2i brand and they have become my go to sunglasses. I have bought some very expensive sunglasses in the past but, for the money, XX2i are top notch! I was very excited when given the opportunity to try out the yet to be released (at the time of delivery), Hawaii1 sunglasses.
The Hawaii1 sunglasses came with a hard zip case and microfiber bag/cleaning cloth. The first thing I noticed was how light weight these glasses are. The frame is carbon fiber, the lenses are polarized, and the nose piece is bendable fir a better fit. Let’s start with the pro’s
- Very light weight as already mentioned
- I appreciate the frame design
- Great looking design
Now for the one Con
- I could never get the fit to feel like they were not going to fall off. They just constantly felt lose on me and I keep pushing them back up my nose. When running, my sunglasses are one of those things I just shouldn’t have to keep on adjusting. I was really surprised by this because I have been very happy with the fit on all the other XX2i glasses that I have tried. I do, however, seem to be in the very small minority on this issue amongst other BibRave Pro’s, so please feel free to read their review to see what they have to say.
