Native Endura Review
With many training seasons starting to get into full swing and the winter clouds starting to fade, it’s ever important to have a good pair of shades. I’ve been running in the Native Endura sunglasses over the past month in sunny, cloudy, rainy, and snowy conditions and I have been super happy with the performance. For starters, the Endura fits a small to medium size face, so if you have a big noggin, it might be good to check out another pair of sunglasses. I consider myself to have a medium sized head for sunglasses and they fit perfect, but I wouldn’t want these glasses to be any smaller.
One of the features that comes in a lot of Native sunglasses including the Endura is a venting system on the top of the frame. This allows excess moisture to escape and it helps your glasses from fogging up. I have been a big fan of this as I have been wearing Native sunglasses for many years now. For sport sunglasses, I like to have sunglasses that have a grippy rubber in the arm of the sunglass. This helps the frame stay on your head when your head is in constant motion like running. I also like it for when I go indoors and put my shades on my hat. Typically if I don’t have the rubber grips and I bend my head down, my sunglasses are on the floor. This as you can imagine can cause the lens to scratch and it some cases for the lens to break. Also coming in useful to keep the sunglasses on your face while deep in activity is a rubber nose grip. This is pretty standard on a lot of sport sunglasses, but it is a must for me when looking for a good sport sunglasses.
If changing your lens out is your thing, the Endura has the ability to change out lenses. I have a number of sunglasses with this option, but it tends to get overlooked for me. That might be because I have a million pairs of sunglasses and I have a lens for every shade of the sky. If this is your only pair of sunglasses, it can be beneficial to switch out lenses between sunny and cloudy/overcast conditions. The Native Endura has a lightweight feel, so you can barely notice them on your face. Having a nice lightweight sunglass is another thing I look for in sports eyewear. Overall, I have been very happy with the Native Endura sunglasses and they have made their way to the top of my sunglass basket when headed out for a run.
