Gone are the days of choosing between full-rim style and lens-swapping ease—the Switch Tioga provides both, breaking new ground in the world of interchangeable lenses. Built-in magnets snap the lenses into place and hold them snug, yet still pop free for an easy change-out. I took these sleek, lightweight shades everywhere—spring skiing in the Bridgers, trail running Sypes Canyon, and mountain biking at Lewis & Clark Caverns—without feeling the slightest shake or rattle. On post-work crossbike rides, when the setting sun made dark lenses dangerous, I slipped the amber lenses out of my pocket and into the frames, all within a few seconds. Throw in sharp optics, a super-sticky nosepiece, and a comfy fit, and the Tioga is like my favorite fleece—equally suitable on the trail or in town. $150; switchvision.com.
