Under Armour Eyewear - GAME DAY Collection PDF Print E-mail

 

By Jason Bruno


 

I'm one of those who spends most of my days in the South Florida sun. My occupation

and passion for the game requires high quality UV eye protection. Over 20 years ago

I was diagnosed with what is known by optometrists as a pinguecula (a small growth

on the eye next to the cornea). I was in my mid-20's at the time of the diagnosis and

thought - damn, I'm not even 30 yet, probably going to need these eyes for many more

years. I was ordered to wear sunglasses wherever and whenever outside - From that day

forward, I've worn premium eyewear everyday

 

So when I was contacted by Under Armour to review they're new GAME DAY Lens Collection,

I jumped at the opportunity. Under Armour Eyewear's GAMEDAY Lens was made specifically

to enhance any visual where moving targets are set against sky or turf. According to the folks

at UA, the Game Day lens has been engineered in collaboration with optics industry leader

ZEISS to deliver superior visual contrast and object illumination. Appearance wise, they're

sharp and sporty. The frame is superlight and flexible - constructed with a combination of

titanium and Grilamid.

 

 

Our test model - BIG SHOT came in satin black/charcoal. BIG SHOT comes in seven different

styles and colors. Retail $89.99 and is also available in polarized for $144.99.

 

 

 

I started testing the UA Bigshot during a recent round, and immediately the sky became a

more brilliant blue, the grass a more vivid green, and the golf ball a brighter white. It was so

much easier to see drives land, iron shots settle, grain direction and subtle contours on the

putting surfaces all came into focus - literally a beautiful thing. All this while wearing a cool

pair of shades . . . and considering how much performance these lenses provide, that just

seems like a bonus.

 

Under Armour Sport Performance Eyewear comes in 7 different models: RIVAL, BIG SHOT,

IGNITER 2.0, CORE 2.0, ZONE 2.0, MARABELLA, and THIEF.
