Revo Waterway Titanium Review
Living in Colorado where we get over 300 days of sun a year, protecting my eyes is extremely important to me. Whether I’m out for a run, bike ride, hike, or just out and about, I pretty much always wear sunglasses. Sunglasses not only protect your eyes from UV rays, but they also help prevent things like rocks, bugs, dust, some pollen, and wind from irritating your eyes.
I’ve been testing out the Revo Waterway Titanium sunglasses over the past couple months to see how they hold up to my everyday activities as well as around town. My main activity is running and when I run and I like to wear a hat to help block out some of the suns rays, and to be honest, I have pretty much worn a hat my whole life. While wearing a hat, I like to have sunglasses that don’t push my brim up to high; otherwise the hats can fly off easily in moderate to high winds. While testing the Revo Waterway Titanium sunglasses, I found the shades to be compatible with every hat that I wore, which is a big bonus in my mind. The frame of the Waterway Titanium isn’t too bulky, yet it isn’t a super small frame that only covers your eyes. The frame of this sunglass is made out of titanium giving the Waterway durability, yet staying light on your face. When you’re wearing a pair of sunglasses during activity or casually, they sometimes get heavy on your face and all you want to do is take them off, not the case with the Revo Waterway.
The lens in the Revo Waterway comes in 3 colors; bronze, water, and graphite. The 3 different colors of lenses not only change the look of the sunglasses, but they each perform differently in varying conditions. For instance, the bronze lenses work well in intense sunlight while the water lenses work well when you’re out on the water, go figure! I personally have the water lenses and though I am landlocked in Colorado, I find the water lens to provide good protection and function for my preference.
To help keep the Waterway Titanium shades on your head, half of the arm on the frame is rubber coated which gives you a secure fit during activity. Rubber grips are a must for me when choosing sunglasses for activity. The arms have cam style hinges meaning they can bend outward when placing them on our head and springing back to give you a secure fit. For overall fit, I think these sunglasses fit a medium to large sized face best. If you have a smaller face, I suggest trying out something else.
The warranty on all Revo sunglasses is 2 years which is on the lower end when it comes to outdoor style sunglasses. For instance, Native Eyewear and Smith Otics both have a lifetime warranty against manufactures defects. On the other side, Oakley typically has a 1 year warranty. I personally would like to see a 5 year warranty since the price of the sunglasses is $249.
All in all, I found the Revo Waterway Titanium sunglasses to perform very well and they have great styling. Since these sunglasses are a little pricey, I suggest these sunglasses to those who take care of their sunglasses. If you lose or sit on your shades often, you might be better off sticking to the sunglasses at the grocery store…
