Product Review: XX2i Bahamas 1 Crystal/Black with Polar Grey AR Lenses

Moose says it's time to go out in his "caswear" Bahamas1 specs!











Disclaimer: I received a pair of XX2i Bahamas1 Crystal/Black with Polar Grey AR Lenses as part of being a BibRave Pro.  Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador) and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews!

Since I first tried a pair of XX2i sunglasses back in January of 2016, I have really enjoyed wearing and using their products.  The Bahamas1 are my fourth pair of sunglasses from XX2i, and are more of a "caswear" type of spec, like the Brazil1 that I reviewed last November.  


The Bahamas1 have polarized lenses and are lightweight yet super durable. They also offer 100% UVA and UVB protection.  In addition, they have a lifetime guarantee, so if you scratch or break them, just pay shipping and handling to get them replaced.

Rocking Moose loves the Bahamas1 because they remind him of summers at the Canadian beach...

Now, are the specs stylish?  Well, you decide...but let me help you.  Let's say you're a guy, a guy...with a beard. Maybe you're starting to lose a little hair up top, but you still want to look hip...consider Moose here:


Moose looking cool for a hot night out on the Maine Coast.

He's got big ears, kind of a mohawk/mullet thing going on, and he sports a sort of funky goatee underneath than really big nose...but still looks cool right?  So, you might be thinking, "I've got big ears, or a big nose, or even a thinning hairline...hey, I can look pretty cool in a pair of XX2i Bahamas1, and you'd be right...not as cool as Moose, but cool enough for the local scene.

Or, consider this human character, you could probably boil an egg of his forehead in the Arctic Sun, but hey, give a pair of Bahamas1 by XX2i to him, and he actually turns out to be more than just a local guy who knows how to trailrun...his coolness factor turns up a few notches!



Moose and I have a similar coolness factor.


These caswear glasses also come with two cases, both a soft case and a hard clamshell case like pictured below:

That eyeglass monster is sticking his tongue out at you! Oh wait, that the Bahamas1 by XX2i with it's two cases!!!

Finally, if you want some durable, cool looking specs that are Moose approved, (both Canadian and United States---well, at least Maine, we're not sure if they're legal yet in Minnesota...we couldn't really understand what the moose there were saying, it might have been the South Dakota influence on their accent and dialect donchyaknow), you can click on over to XX2i.com to save 50% off any purchase right now with code "xx2irocks".  And if you do so, tell them Moose sent you.



Moose and I rarely appear in public together, we fight over the glasses too much.

The Bahamas1 by XX2i are pretty cool street cred specs.  Moose approved.
