Sunglasses. No matter what season you tailgate, a good pair of sunglasses is key. The harsh glare of the sun during those early football season tailgates or the glare from that snow bank in the late season, you’re going to need some sunglasses this coming tailgating season.
A major complaint many tailgaters have is that they have a larger head and traditional, “over the counter”, one-size-fits-all sunglasses don’t fit properly and are uncomfortable. I have that same problem so I definitely feel your pain and frustration. That’s why when the folks at Fatheadz Eyewear contacted us about their line of products, we were pretty stoked to try them out.
Fatheadz prides themselves in being able to fit each person to their needed width of sunglasses. Their sunglasses range from 130 mm – 164 mm width options. Even if you have a head the size of a watermelon in August, they have you covered.
We had a sample of the Fatheadz Big Daddy V2.0 sunglasses sent to us to test out.

My hat size is 7 5/8 which translates to needing a frame width of 145 mm (5.71 in). They arrived professionally packaged with a sturdy carrying case and fit my face like a glove… actually not a glove but just like a great pair of sunglasses should. After having them on for less than five minutes, I was convinced I had found my new pair of sunglasses for the upcoming tailgating season.
The Big Daddy V2.0 sunglasses cost $99.00 and the available frame colors include: Black, Trans Grey, Trans Brown and Clear. Available lens colors include: Smoke, Brown, Glacier Blue and Volcanic Red.
Fatheadz boasts nearly 10 different frame styles and within each frame style they are available in multiple colors and lens options.
After testing out Fatheadz Eyewear, if you have a larger head and have trouble finding sunglasses that fit, Fatheadz Sunglasses are definitely “Tailgate Approved”.
