When selecting the best fishing sunglasses for big heads, our opticians paid special attention to the following key criteria: coverage, fit, and size. Let’s break down each of these elements below.
For long days under the sun, protect yourself from all angles with sunglasses that provide generous coverage. All of the frames below have an 8-base wrap that seamlessly contours your face to keep UV rays at bay.
Don’t let slipping frames or constant readjustments get in between you and your next big catch. A strategically placed rubberized grip will keep these sunglasses perfectly in place, even when you break a sweat.
SportRx Frame Width
To help you find your perfect sunglasses size, we’ve come up with a new way to reliably measure frames and determine your size. It’s called the SportRx Frame Width (SFW).
To break it down, we use our SFW to measure accurate frame dimensions, determine the fit of a frame, and show how to apply your SFW when buying sunglasses online. It’s taken time to perfect, and we couldn’t be more confident in the results! That’s why you’ll find an SFW measurement for every one of the frames in our lineup of the best fishing sunglasses for big heads!
