How many times have you broken a lens in your sunglasses or picked the sunny-lens model to bring out on the flats only to have the day cloud over? Now those worries are gone. Switch Vision pioneered a magnetic-interchange lens system that solves these problems. Switch’s high-energy rare-earth magnets hold the interchangeable lenses securely in the frame, and the sunglasses can be dropped from a height of 6 feet onto a hard surface without the lenses popping out. Interchangeable polarized and nonpolarized lenses come in a variety of colors, including green, amber, rose red and others, to address every possible light condition. Substitute lenses come in a special small-profile, hard-shell LensPod for easy access and storage, and Switch showcases 11 different models of sunglasses to fit your needs. $119 to $189; www.switchvision.com
