Key Features

When selecting a frame that can do it all, there are a few main features to keep in mind. Take a look at the criteria used by our expert Sports Opticians when picking the best polarized sunglasses for fishing & driving!

Protect yourself from all angles with lenses that provide generous coverage. Available in many forms, these frames have either an 8-base wrap or tall and wide lenses to keep UV rays from entering your precious peepers.

Secure Fit
Say goodbye to the days of slipping frames and constant readjustments. Keep both hands on the wheel, or the fishing rod, with sunglasses that stay in place. Rubber grip is strategically placed so that you get a comfortable and secure fit.

Contrast-Enhancing Lens Technology
As the title suggests, all of the frames in our lineup are polarized. Whether you're in the driver's seat or casting off from the deck, we recommend polarization for both activities. The reason being that when you're on the road or water, you're surrounded by highly reflective surfaces. Sunrays bounce off these surfaces and are reflected into your eyes as blinding glare. Polarized lenses work to block this blinding glare, so you can see more clearly and with greater contrast.

Another key feature of contrast-enhancing lenses is the tint. Ambers, rose coppers, and browns all excel at boosting contrast and details in a variety of lighting conditions.
