One more thing this aging paddler needs - reading glasses. Plural, as in a primary set and a back up set. And, as soon as I can find a pair I like, polarized sunglasses with “cheaters” at the lens bottom, so I can read the damn map.
Sunglasses with cheaters have been on my “To buy” gear list for too long. After years of buying nothing but cheapo sunglasses I finally came to appreciate the clarity difference quality lens and coatings make. Good sunglasses are another gear item I would (um, have) replace immediately if lost.
I carry two pair of sunglasses. I have been snow blind twice (well, one and a half times, just the right eye once) and can not deal with bright sunshine even with a broad brimmed hat. I’m screwed without sunglasses and carry a spare pair just in case.
But I’m still hesitant to drop that much coin on a pair with cheaters until I know if they are useful/tolerable to me.
Anyone use sunglasses with cheaters for map reading assistance? Anyone have a recommendation for a mid-range price point pair that will fit a fairly wide noggin?
