I received the XX2i polarized USA1 sunglasses in white gloss with blue flash lenses, retail value $59.99.  

Here’s what came in the package:

XX2i USA1

  • 1 pair of sunglasses 
  • 1 hard case
  • 1 sunglasses soft case/ cleaner
  • extra nose pieces and temple tips (both adjustable!)
  • 1 sunglasses strap

A few months ago I had the opportunity to also review the XX2i France1 Dual Pack, so I thought it would be interesting to try a different pair of XX2i glasses to compare.  While I didn’t mind the France1, I’ll admit that when it came down to it my instinct was to still reach for my old running sunglasses, so I was curious to see how I’d feel about the USA1.  (The France1 are a half frame sunglasses while the USA1 are a full frame which is what I’m more used to wearing.)

While I actually like the look of the France1 better on me, I did find the USA1 more comfortable (I have a small face though, so I personally think they look kind of big on my face!).  And I LOVE the white and blue color!

I think I’ve figured out what sort of bugs me about both pairs of these glasses though – the rubber nose pieces and “arms” or “temple tips” as they call them.  While I understand that the rubber helps keep them in place, especially while running, biking or getting sweaty, I feel like the rubber gets stuck in my hair, especially when I try to push the glasses on top of my head.  Definitely not enough to keep me from using these glasses, but just something I noticed that was bugging me.

PROS:

  • Customizable with adjustments, extra lenses, nose & temple pieces
  • Hard & soft cases to keep glasses safe
  • Stayed in place while running
  • Many color options – I love the white & blue ones I received (see them all HERE!)
  • XX2i has a 365 any reason return policy if you’re not happy with your purchase!

CONS:

  • Nose pieces make them sit a little farther away from my face than I personally like (let’s sun in from the top), but that being said, a lot of people like that because then sweat doesn’t get trapped in the glasses!
  • Rubber nose piece and “temple tips” get stuck in my hair which gets frustrating

I spent a ton of time outdoors running, paddle boarding and biking and I know I’ll get a ton of use out of these glasses!

Are sunglasses a “must have” for your runs?

  1. Nice. I wear prescription sunglasses so I have to pass on the deal.
    I have some Oakley’s and the plastic they use on the nose pieces grips more as your skins moistens via rain or sweat.
    Run well!
