It is essential to choose the perfect sunglasses!

After carefully choosing your footwear, your backpack, your protectionone of the eyes, then the perfect pair of glasses will be the next choice of equipment for the pilgrimage to Santiago.
The sports sunglasses will be your protectionone for the eyes as you make your way along the trail and will accompany you all the way. If you choose the wrong sunglasses, you will have to struggle for miles with irritated eyes, tired and fatigued vision.

We have selected in the collectionone of sports glasses DEMON the 10 best models to undertake the Camino de Santiago.

PrimLet's start with some simple rules:

  1. Travel Light! When I ask fellow pilgrims what they learned and/or what they would do differently, the number one response is “I would bring less stuff!”. If you put too many things in your backpack and carry a heavy load, no backpack, not even the most comfortable one, can help you.
    Bring only the essentials! Therefore, choose sunglasses that are useful for protectionone in most light conditions it guarantees maximum protectionone in a single solutionone.
  2. Choose comfort: Once you have decided on the type of glasses you think is most idonea, make sure this is comfortable and stable to your face. It is important that the glasses protect from light, but at the same time are stable on the face even on the most bumpy parts of the route.
  3. Train, train and train some more: Once you have purchased your sports glasses, your journey is ready to begin. Load your backpack with your desired base weight and do a few months of training. Make sure your shoulders, hips and back are comfortable. If you have problems with the adjustmentone or you don't feel comfortable try changing the set up! Comfort is essential, because the journey will be long.
  4. Think small: When making your packing list, aim for a total weight of around 15 pounds and a base weight (without shoes and clothing worn). This will allow you to move light and comfortably.
  5. Think strategically: Don't put in your backpack what you can buy along the way. Snacks, drinks and food can be purchased multiple times a day, so don't stock up. Personal hygiene items and first aid kit can also be purchased at least every other day, so keep your kit to the basics. Clothes can be hand washed every day, so two pairs of each item are sufficient.
  6. Nothing beats training: It doesn't matter how much time and money you spend buying the perfect equipment. If you are not physically and mentally fit, your chances of completing the pilgrimage will decrease dramatically.

Given these trail conditions, the suggestsriment to pilgrims is to evaluate very flexible and light glasses, which offer maximum protectionone from light and stability and comfort at the same time. Furthermore, choosing the right glasses will also allow you to use them for all excursions in your post-Cammino life.
