BEST FOR: Land-based recreation.

THE TEST: Kaenon, unashamedly elitist maker of swanky, fashionable sports sunglasses, makes a move highly reminiscent of Mercedes with the Baby Benzes. You spend less and still get the look, vibe, and feel. You also get a little less of what you might really want. Conspicuously absent are Kaenon’s polarized lenses, which you’ll miss only if you’ve tried them. Still, these are great-looking shades with a highly versatile copper tint, and the comfortable and secure nylon frames rise to the level of wearable sculpture.

THE VERDICT: Low end of the high end.
