Lightweight Sunglasses

Take a load off with these lightweight frames.

Lightweight Sunglasses for On-The-Go Durability

Packing light is especially crucial when far-flung locales are on the agenda, and we’d be remiss if we didn’t support adventurers everywhere. For those times when fantastic feats are calling, here comes our collection of lightweight sunglasses to lessen your load.

We did the hard work for you by combining all of our lightweight sunglasses into one handy collection for easy browsing. Our lightweight aviators like Mile Highs and Mount Evans are ultra-compact and made from recycled metal, so you’ll be doing the Earth a favor too. Acetate shades like our Paso Robles, Fast Lanes, and Mai Tais offer even more personalization potential, plus our Classics and Premiums lightweight sunglasses snap back together without any hardware when you need a safe bet for that overstuffed bag.

 We’ve even got lightweight sport sunglasses for moments when going off-trail is totally essential and those rubberized nose pads finally get some use. We can’t promise our UV400-protected lightweight sunglasses will make your whole trip worthwhile, but we’ll let your killer selfies speak for themselves.


Lightweight, Go-anywhere Sunglasses

Jet-setting? Racing? Taking your mountain bike down a particularly steep pass? It doesn’t matter where you wear your sunglasses, just as long as you have a pair that’s appropriate for the adventure at hand. In all of these scenarios and more, you have to prioritize weight. Grab a pair of Knockaround's lightweight sunglasses for the best combo of UV and glare protection coupled with total durability. The bottom line is that you can’t be bogged down by what you’re wearing, especially if you need to focus on what’s in front of you.

The Right Shades for the Job

These lightweight sunglasses can help you travel light and de-bulk your gym bag, carry-on, or backpack. Ours are some of the best lightweight sunglasses for situations where even a single extra pound can be a burden, like if you’re taking a long-haul backpacking journey or running a marathon. A good pair of lightweight shades should provide you with top-quality protection, improved visibility, and effortless style, all without packing on the pounds. A great variety of frame and lens colors doesn’t hurt matters, either.

We offer several styles that meet all of these criteria and more. Whether you prefer the timeless, semi-rounded silhouette of Knockaround Classics, the glamorous round frames of Knockaround Mai Tais, or the light and breezy feel of our Premiums, these good-looking sunglasses will exceed your expectations. Even though they’re lightweight and easy to take with you wherever you go, our light sunglasses are also designed for durability and have impact-resistant lenses and durable hardware. If you’re so inclined, be sure to choose a pair of our lightweight polarized sunglasses for even more protection.
