Dang shades are a relatively new kid on the sunnies block but offer a range of specs that ooze style, attitude and are perfectly suited to stand up paddlers and their needs. The Sleeper is currently THE one, with plenty of saltwater fans rocking this style – it seemed only right then that we should check out a pair.
The Dang Sleeper is super comfy to wear; polarised lenses give crystal clear views of all your surrounds. They’re perfectly applicable for rocking when out for a float (if you’re confident not dropping them in the drink) on flat water – best to leave them ashore if you are attacking surf or bumps.
Everyone needs a decent pair of sunnies; for bright days at the beach, that tropical SUP trip or winter days when the orange ball in the sky does show its face. Dang’s wide assortment of models will offer most something that suits. The Sleeper is pretty universal though; it just comes down to personal preference.
Having worn the Sleeper in a variety of situations, we now can’t do without ours. Whether relaxing at the beach, navigating to your put in spot, sweeping in the glaring sunshine or looking stylish during the après, a pair of Dangs is sure to set you up right.
We were particularly impressed with the clarity of the lenses. Even when splashed up with salty water, vision remained 20/20. There were a couple of unceremonious dunkings and, while we wouldn’t advise it, the wrap around nature of the Sleeper ensured they stuck fast to our bonce. A couple of times we were overzealous in our head jerks too, resulting in them falling to the shingle. Happily, upon inspection, the lenses seemed to fend off unwanted scratches, which also impressed. There’s nothing worse than annoying gouge marks in your sunnies!
Dang’s Sleeper are a popular model in the brand’s range and it’s not hard to see why. Stylish good looks, clear scratch resistant polarised lenses and lightweight frames deliver a value for money package. For paddlers looking for something fresh in their eyewear, Dang should fit the bill nicely.
