BTB Sunglasses, Review and Giveaway!

The snow we had over the weekend is already melting.  The sun was out yesterday afternoon, and the roads were dry, so I headed out for a four mile run, and tested out a pair of sunglasses.

BTB Sunglasses is a new brand of sunglasses started in part to fund the BTB Foundation. Their mission is to of assist in the fight against childhood obesity, by promoting youth participation in all ball sports for a healthier lifestyle.  A portion of every sale on the BTB Sunglasses website goes towards this cause.

How cool is that?

BTB has a range of styles, depending on your face size and activity, such as hiking, biking, water sports, and of course, running!  Mike is a golfer, and he has a tendency to lose sunglasses, I found a pair of golf sunglasses that might work as a gift for Father's Day.

I chose the 500 series, please excuse my post run sweaty hair.






I was surprised at how light weight they are, and I like how they wrap around my head, while providing full eye coverage.  It drives me nuts when glasses move around, or slide down my nose as I run, but these stayed in place.  The frame is thin, but they're durable, here is a link to a video on YouTube  where they shoot a pair of glasses with a shotgun, and they make it through unscathed.

I'm a fan.

WIN IT! 

Here is how you can enter to win a pair of the sunglasses of your choice (except polarized models, and sorry, giveaway is only open to U.S. residents):
