I wear sunglasses all year round and for every outdoor occasion. They aren’t just for style; I wear them to protect my eyes from the sun’s UV rays, especially since my eyes are ultra sensitive to the sunlight. When it comes to the best match for me, I love the iconic look of Aviators. Around since the 1930’s, they aren’t going out of style any time soon and they frame my round face nicely. I found a pair of Silver City 59 sunglasses by KBL Eyewear and they are stylish in every situation. From high mountain treks to floating in the Dead Sea in Israel, my Silver City glasses have me covered.
My recent trip to Israel brought me to Mesada, an ancient fortification in the Southern District of Israel situated on top of an isolated rock plateau, on the eastern edge of the Judaean Desert, overlooking the Dead Sea. I had dreamed of climbing to the top of Mesada since I learned about Herod the Great in high school. Hot, exposed, and dry, sunglasses are a must and I was as grateful to have my Silver City 59 as I was to have water. They have a wide filed of view with limited obstructions and the best UV protection.
Our next stop was the Dead Sea. Lathered in mud and ready to float, I entered the lowest and saltiest spot on earth. My glasses framed my face closely, decreasing the chances of them falling off. If there was ever I time I needed excellent protection, it was in the Dead Sea. The salty water draws the sun’s rays and leaves you squinting and irritated without coverage.
When I said that I wear sunglasses everywhere outdoors, I wasn’t lying. Even underwater fun is enhanced with my Silver City 59 glasses. Notice my friend’s squinting eyes; it wasn’t a problem for me.
Hesitantly, I did take my glasses off indoors. During our Grape-Man wine tasting, I left them on the table, but you can imagine how much I appreciated them after emerging outdoors after an afternoon of exploring Israel and then hours of drinking Israeli wines.
KBL’s Silver City 59 are the lightweight, comfortable, and versatile. Finding the right clothing to wear in Israel was difficult because of weather, traditions, and activities; regardless of the situation, tough, I wore my Silver City sunglasses.
