"Disclaimer: I received a pair of xx2i France2 sunglasses to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!"
I have been a fan of xx2i for the last few years, I have enjoyed both sporty and casual frames from their collection and have found them to be high quality, durable and stylish.
I was sent a pair of XX2i France2 Pro Racing Sunglasses. Doesn’t’ that just sound cool? They are considered “half rim sport sunglasses”, as there is only a frame around the top half. As usual, the packaging they came in was awesome. It was in a hard case with lots of cushioning and a spot for the lenses to fit in and be protected. They also came with a soft pouch to carry them in, as well as a strap
Product specs –
I planned to take these out for a run the next day. I looked all over for them and then discovered that my husband took them to work, without even asking me if he could borrow them! He really likes them, apparently.
So, the next day I took them out when I walked the dog.They fit great.
Then it was time to put them to the real test – running! I wore them in the Hot Chocolate Las Vegas race, and they stayed perfectly in place, no slipping, no fogging up. I'm so glad I had them handy, as it ended up being much brighter than I thought for the race and would have been in real trouble without them..
Next up was Ragnar! I wore these for my two daytime legs and they looked and felt great. It was very hot and sunny! Not only did they look great and stay in place, but they survived a weekend of getting thrown into a backpack when not in use, riding around in a van full of stuff!
The France 2 model comes in 14 sporty colors. These particular glasses retail for $59.99 on xx2i.com. The polarized versions go for $99.99. HOWEVER - They are offering a killer 50% discount with code “marchbibrave" now through March 28. Personally feel like it’s a great deal for solid, sporty glasses for running.
I’m totally buying my husband a pair for his upcoming birthday since he keeps stealing these from me. Shhh, don’t say anything!
Also 2 big plusses here –
Lifetime warranty - Lifetime Warranty! No questions asked, you break or scratch them, send them back to be replaced for a nominal shipping and handling fee!
365 day return policy – you can return up to a full year after purchase (who does that?) and get a full refund minus S&H.
