BEST: Land-sport grownups proud to look their age. THE TEST: For athletes who can’t risk shattered glass (think ball sports, mountain biking, trail running), the Double Haul debuts Costa’s superfine polarized optics in a polycarbonate lens. With tortoise frames and gray lenses, these are sports glasses, but quietly so. Rubber cladding on the earpieces keeps things tight but looks more fashion than function. Ditto the tiny vents on the front. Wear them to work, running errands on the way home, and then out on your road workout. Available with prescription lenses. THE VERDICT: Crossover glasses for those who don’t play too hard, but a bit heavy and avuncular for youthful extremes.
