BLOC ‘Stealth’ Sunglasses

They Say - The lightweight Stealth is a BLOC legend. It’s a vital part of any kit bag providing demanding athletes the ultimate in performance and protection. Moulded nose pads prevent slipping and improve comfort, control and performance. A comfortable lightweight flexible frame for high-speed pursuits. Perfect for skiing, cycling and shooting with maximum peripheral vision. 3 interchangeable lenses let you adapt to all sports and all weather conditions. The three lenses supplied are: Clear Cat 1, Citrus Cat 1(yellow) and Ve5 Cat 3. Lenses provide 100% UV protection. Comes in an attractive display box. 

We Say - These are my favourite Bloc sunglasses, and my favourite running glasses, full stop. They have excellent lens quality and they don’t bounce around at all during a run. I didn’t notice them at all during the Sri Lankan marathon, except for when I took them off at the finish line and the glare of the day hit me for the first time.

I used to get pretty bad headaches when I ran on very sunny days without glasses. I never had a pair as I considered them a bit expensive (I was wary of the cheap pairs you can find in supermarkets, some of them can do more harm than good thanks to their cheap lens). But now I’ve got these, the headaches have gone, something for which I very grateful.

Lens removal and fitting is really easy. The frames are robust and can handle a little firmness and it’s a simple matter of gripping the frame and pulling teach lens down, out and away. The lens bag has 3 compartments, the 2 either side take the spare lenses, the middle takes the glasses. The frames come in either white or black.

I’ve been wearing them on all my domestic runs these past 2 years, and overseas marathons too including Sri Lanka, Rome and Athens, and I’ve absolutely no compaints at all. The yellow lens really do up the light levels on dull days, and the glasses themselves don’t lessen my field of vision at all. As well as that, they are still in good shape after all that time, and use. The case they come with protects them well – I carry them around in my sports bag so they get mixed up with all the other kit but the lens aren’t scratched at all.

In Summary - These Bloc Stealth glasses are superb! I wouldn’t be without a pair of running glasses now, and these are my first choice.
