Revo Sunglasses Review

Enters the Golf Eyeglass Industry in a Big Way


Since being founded in 1985, Revo has quickly become known around the world as the leader in polarized lens technology. Revo’s sunglasses were first created by using the same lens technology that NASA used as solar protection for their satellites. Now, more than thirty years later, the company continues to build on its storied tradition of technology and innovation and offers the clearest, most advanced high-contrast polarized eyewear in the world.

Recently, Revo entered the golf eyewear arena and introduces several pair for golf. I found their Harness Sunglasses to be perfect for my game. They block 100% of the sun’s harmful UVA, UVB and UVC light and absorb 87% of visible light with 99% polarized light efficiency. They also offer 91% protection against Blue light and HEV light. In a sport that has such unique light requirements, the Revo lens palette has numerous offerings that allows golfers to improve contrast and visual acuity and, at the same time, highlight key parts of the light spectrum to gain more precise vision on the course.

Revo’s Light Management System (LMS) manages the full spectrum of light, including blue light and high-energy visible (HEV) light. LMS filters out harmful light and only allows in light that is beneficial for vision. All Revo lenses feature Digital Polarized Plus technology which offers 100% polarization to protect against glare, while still allowing you to view your electronic devices, even in bright sunlight.

One of the models Revo recommends for golf is the Harness. These sunglasses feature Revo’s High-Contrast Polarized Serilium lenses, which are a lightweight and shatterproof formulation of polycarbonate. The Harness utilizes 8-Base Lens technology – meaning 8 different lenses are combined to uniquely filter the full light spectrum. They have a more curved fit, relative to your face. The frame of the Harness sunglasses is very lightweight and won’t be a distraction during play.

In addition, Harness incorporate Revo’s SurfacePro Protection System, including 3-6 layers of high-tech performance mirror coatings and 5 layers of back surface protective coatings, aimed at reducing intrusive back surface reflections. There’s a permanent coating on the back of the lens to repel water and sweat and another coating on the front that repels oil and fingerprints. No telling what happens if you get water on the front and fingerprints on the back of the lens, but I’m sure Revo’s got you covered! The Harness combines a current look with a contoured and comfortable fit, and the spectacularly clear view makes them perfect for golf. Retail price on the Harness sunglasses is $189.99.

Another style that Revo is touting for golf is the Carlisle, part of their premier Windsor-rim sunglasses line. The Carlisle features a classic aviator frame which is wrapped in rich brown leather and is available with Revo’s high-contrast polarized Crystal lenses in three colors. They have a much flatter fit relative to your face than the Harness and feature Revo’s Light Management System and the same special coatings found in the Harness model. The Crystal glass lenses are scratch-resistant and are ground and polished to nearly the same specs as a camera lens. Although not my first choice for golf, the Carlisleoffers crystal clear views and the polarized lenses eliminate virtually all annoying glare. The metal frame is highly durable and very light. Retail price for the Carlisle sunglasses is #349.99

Revo also offers an impressive warranty: two years from the date of purchase; just be sure to hold on to your receipt. The warranty covers all defects in material or workmanship, however it does not cover scratches.
These are just two of many golf-specific sunglasses models from Revo. If you’re looking for a chosen leader in sunglasses technology that offers style and innovation, take a look at some of the new Revo models.
