Below is a list of our top picks for sunglasses to take when heading out on the water and the reasoning behind why you need these polarized lenses for your next adventure.
Polarized sunglasses block glare from light reflecting off flat surfaces, which makes them an essential tool when on the water.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT LENS COLOR
We'll keep it simple, if you're looking at a mirrored lens such as a blue or green lens, flip the glasses around and look at them from the inside. Most times a blue lens might be a reflective coating on top of a gray base lens, and a green lens might be a reflective coating on top of an amber base lens for example.
The darkest lens color meant for bright sunny days and deep water fishing and boating. Choosing a reflective coating over top a gray lens is the best option for the harshest sunny conditions.
Amber and Copper lenses are great for light conditions that change throughout the day, or going through streams with shady tree coverage. The amber lens base will enhance colors giving a higher visual contrast and clarity. A great choice for inshore fishing and boating.
These glasses are all about brining in the most amount of light for low light conditions, normally at dusk or dawn, but still giving your eyes maximum protection even on cloudy days.
