Rec Specs Sunglasses For Your Winter Adventures

With so much snow on the ground and frigid temperatures, it's easy to think that winter is a time to keep you cooped up indoors. Don’t miss out! Whether you're itching to hit the slopes and shred some powder on your skis, or you prefer hiking along a hard trail through the mountains, exciting, new adventures await you this season.

But remember, with all the excitement, it's also important to protect your vision. So gear up with a pair of Rec Specs that are specially designed for winter sports, to keep your eyes safe from the elements, UV rays, and all that glare. Rec Specs frames and lenses come equipped with several features that provide added protection and performance such as eye cups, magnetic lenses, and side shields. Discover more about these features below!



Eyecups are designed to fit snugly against the face and block out wind, snow, and debris, ensuring that your eyes remain clear and focused regardless of harsh conditions. This can be especially important when skiing or snowboarding at high speeds, as any debris or wind can cause eye irritation, dryness, and decrease in visibility. 

 Our eyecups come in two options:

  • Foam: more breathable and soft against the face
  • Rubber: better seal and easier to clean 
Best for: snowmobiling, alpine skiing, cross-country skiing


Side shields are powered by the Switch Magnetic system and offer wind and debris protection, as well as block out extra light. They are also designed to be comfortable to wear, so you can focus on enjoying your winter sports activities without any discomfort. 

Best for: après ski fun at the lodge, hanging out with friends, driving home




The Magnetic Interchange Lens System is a Switch feature that uses high-energy magnets embedded in the lens and frame to enable users to swap lenses quickly and easily as light conditions and activities change. This means that you can easily adjust the lenses to suit bright sunlight, overcast skies or any other condition, ensuring that your vision remains clear and unobstructed at all times. The magnets hold the lenses securely in place, so you don't have to worry about them falling out mid-run. This is especially useful during winter sports activities, where the elements can be harsh and the conditions can change quickly. 

Best for: snowboarding, cross-country skiing, fat biking



Photochromic lenses are designed to automatically adjust to the level of light, becoming darker in bright sunlight and lighter in low-light conditions. This means that the lens will automatically adjust to the changing light conditions as you move through different areas of the mountain or as the weather conditions change. This feature can improve your performance and safety in changing weather conditions, especially when the sun's rays suddenly become more intense due to the reflection of the snow. 

Best for: skiing, snowmobiling, mountaineering, fat biking


The 2x2 ProCoat is a revolutionary lens coating technology that provides numerous benefits for performance during winter sports. This proprietary coating pairs double-sided, anti-reflective and fast fog recovery coating with the base lens of your choice, reducing glare both indoors and outdoors while maximizing recovery for clear vision. This feature is ideal for high-performance sports and everyday activities as it helps to maintain clear vision in all lighting conditions, even in the cold and humid conditions of the body that are often experienced in winter sports.
