Why I Need My Pugs Sunglasses in the Summer

Posted by Adrian Doggrell on Jun 21, 2013, 1:30:00 PM



The summer is a magical time of year. We have the opportunity to do some many wonderful activities that the colder months of winter prevents us from doing. Unfortunately, most of these events take place during the day, and they are usually accompanied by an abundance of sunshine. Most sunburns can be quite annoying, but any sunburn on your eyeball is a whole different kind of pain. That is why it is necessary for me to always be prepared for the sun. It was true growing up in Tenneseee, and it is even more so living in Colorado. That is why I always need to have my Pugs Gear polarized sunglasses with me during the summer.

I don’t work out very often, a fact that my girlfriend enjoys reminding me of quite often, but when I do, I need complete focus. Colorado can have some intense winters. We get a lot of snow, and at times, the temperature can drop quite low, and the desire to workout outside is almost nothing. So during the summer, I make it my business to take advantage of that warm weather.

I try to run a couple times a week after work. It isn’t usually for very long, but I just want to do something to get my heart rate up. Unfortunately, since my dedication is suspect to begin with, it doesn’t take a lot to derail my efforts. That is why I need total focus on the task at hand and cannot afford to be worried about the sun.

I feel the same way when I am hiking. Climbing a mountain can be one of the most inspiring and rewarding activities I will do all summer, but it can also be pure torture. When I am getting higher and higher in elevation, the sun is getting more and more powerful. I need quality protection from the sun. That is why I always hike wearing my polarized sunglasses from Pugs Gear.

  • When Pursuing Your Hobbies

One of the most wonderful aspects of the summer is the opportunity to do all of those special things you love. Maybe you like to garden. Perhaps you prefer to spend your time biking around your city. I, for one, enjoy golfing and fishing. As a child, I learned both of these from my father. He was a busy man, and I had a couple of older brothers, and my quality time with him was limited. It didn’t take long for me to realize that I should try to take up his hobbies so we could share that time. And I am so happy I did that because his passions became my passions. Now, many years later, I get ample opportunity to do both while living in Colorado.

Fishing in this state is unbelievable. There are so many natural rivers and so many wonderful mountain lakes full of wild trout. It is truly a privilege to get to get to fish these waters regularly, but it would be all for nothing if I didn’t have my Pugs Gear quality yet oddly cheap sunglasses. They allow me to see better into the water while still protecting my eyes. Golfing is no different. I can’t golf at night. I live in Colorado, so that means it is going to be sunny. I will need my polarized sunglasses to minimize the distractions caused by that aggressive sun, so I can focus on my next swing.

  • During Those Summertime Staples

It doesn’t matter what you are doing during the summer. Maybe you are catching a day-game at the baseball park. Perhaps you are playing yard games at a buddy’s BBQ. Maybe you are hanging out with coworkers on the rooftop deck at a local bar for happy hour. You may have a family trip planned for the beach. You may even be in a softball league at your company picnic. No matter what you are doing, you have one need in common. Quality sunglasses will help you be able to roll with the weather and disregard everything else, freeing you up to focus on the wonderful summertime activity at hand.


There is nothing better than a good pair of sunglasses. They look good. They feel good. And if you are smart like me and only buy Pugs Gear, they are cheap too. It is the summertime, so make the most out of these short few months, and leave the sun blocking work to your polarized sunglasses
