This past summer, the folks at performance apparel manufacturer Under Armour introduced a new hydrophobic lens technology dubbed Storm. They co-developed the technology with optics company Zeiss and incorporated it into a range of their new product line including the Zone 2.0. Our sample arrived in the satin black finish and sporting blue polarized lenses.

The Zone 2.0 provided a standout fit. They somehow felt lighter than similarly weighted products like the Bolle Bolt (both products sit right at 7/8 of an ounce). The thin frames hugged the temple and kept the Zone’s from bouncing around on our runs. The nose piece adjusts to further customize the fit.

Style: Two lens wraparound
Lens: Polarized
Weight: .875 oz

Unlike other products in our test – the Bolle Bolt and Tifosi Lore – the Zone 2.0 sunglasses don’t support interchangeable lenses. The blue polarized worked well in most conditions except low light situations. We didn’t have any issues with fogging and the Storm technology did seem to keep sweat from smudging the lens significantly.

No hard case is provided. And at nearly $145 MSRP, the Under Armour Zone 2.0 is fairly expensive. If you’re a big fan of the brand, these will definitely not disappoint however and you can find them around the web at prices closer to $100. 

Thanks for reading another outdoor gear review from GearGuide. And thanks to Under Armour for providing products for this review.
