Which are the best sunglasses for driving, what do I need to know?

If you’re confused about selecting the right sunglasses for driving, then you’re not alone; we’re asked about this a lot.

So many choices out there, it’s overwhelming. After years of research and testing here’s what we know..

When you know a bit about what makes sunglasses work, you’re half way there. Of course good lens performance is an important part of what it’s all about and the lens technology, is what makes the difference between wasting your money, or not.

Bigatmo sunglasses are all about the technology and that’s why they perform so well for driving.


Why Does Lens Quality Matter?

Well, whilst driving the top priority is your safety. Being able to read instruments clearly and to have a clear view of the road ahead is quite handy.

As for decision making, struggling to look through poor quality lenses is far from ideal. Clear vision on the other hand is a huge asset, especially if you have to react quickly to a situation on the road ahead.

I heard about Bigatmo through my son. Ordered a pair of EXO sunglasses for him a couple of years ago - he's a helicopter pilot. I wore them while driving into a low sun last month and found the clearer vision was amazing so decided to get my own pair.
