You glasses case allows you to carry your sunglasses in your trouser pocket, backpack or belt when you are hiking in the mountains. If you are looking for a sunglasses case, here are the questions that will help you choose one that suits your needs!
Highly flexible and compact: the soft case
A case made of fabric is sufficient to protect your glasses from getting scratched in your sports bag. Any practical advice? Some cases are made of microfibre that cleans your glasses!
The semi-flexible case
Do you want to protect your glasses from scratches as well as from shocks? If that's the case, a semi-flexible case is the solution! Being slightly more rigid, it better absorbs impacts whilst remaining flexible.
The semi-rigid case
The most rigid cases protect the glasses from getting scratched, knocked or even crushed.
The material is heat-moulded. The case then tends to retain its initial shape.
For all that, a semi-rigid case will still be relatively lightweight thereby saving weight in a sports bag.
These semi-rigid cases are often recommended for children to make it easier for them to handle their glasses or for athletes who often carry their glasses in a sports bag.
