Gearing up young kids for a day outside is a battle. Keeping that gear in place can be impossible. Here’s some help: MFS’s Xtreme Sports children’s sunglasses ($20). The adjustable neoprene band keeps the UVA/UVB sunglasses comfortably on, and there are no frame arms for curious hands to twist and snap. Bonus: The head strap also acts as an around-the-neck keeper, assuring the sunglasses won’t be lost on the way home—which can’t be said about most kid accessories. Available in infant to 12-year-old sizes.

Wild graphics and athlete tie-ins are fun, but for technical performance, Dragon Alliance’s no-nonsense ROGUE goggles really deliver. These sleek black beauties come with a polarized, optically correct lens, adjustable hinges and triple layer face foam. They offer 100% UV protection for your eyes and micro fleece lining for your face (so you won’t be sporting goggle lines après).
