Gear Review: UVEX Crow Ultra

UVEX has a habit of producing lightweight yet functional high-performance eyewear for athletes across the globe. The Crow Ultra is no exception. This featherweight is outclassed only by its durability.

The Crow Ultra offers superior eye protection from the sun. Two multi-conditioned lenses are included with each set of glasses. The Supravision litemirror gray lens prevents color distortion on bright sunny days. The vision-enhancing amber lens flattens light on cloudy days which increases visibility and clarifies your field of vision–ideal for snowshoeing at dawn or dusk. A clear lens is available upon request for protection from dust and wind.

A unique feature of the glasses is its Climazone venting system. It is designed to keep the inside of each lens clear in both humid and cold conditions. This is especially beneficial to the snowshoer as his/her face heats during exertion. The glasses performed in adverse weather conditions each time I wore them – whether below zero at altitude or running in triple-digit heat.

The Crow Ultra sports an adjustable and removable headband which ensures your glasses will remain secure on your head in the toughest conditions.

The capability to change lenses in a pinch, Climazone venting system, adjustable and removable headband, and a sturdy carrying case/pouch make the Crow Ultra a wise investment for the snowshoer. Suggested MSRP is $100,
