BEST FOR: Shooting discreetly.

THE TEST: With a comfortable fit and crisp, polarized lenses, it’s easy to forget the Durangos pull double duty as a legit action cam. (They weigh only a smidge more than normal sunglasses.) The tiny camera between the eyes is operated by an intuitive rubber button on the side of the generically sporty frames, allowing you to capture 1080p video at 30 fps on the sly. Our only gripe is that you can’t switch out the SD card, which means you’re locked down to 8GB of internal memory—or about an hour of footage, half as much as traditional action cams.

THE VERDICT: A little Sky Mallish, sure, but let’s be honest: it’s less conspicuous than affixing a shiny box to the top of your helmet. 

TECH: 3
