Polarized Sunglasses Lens Guide

There's a lot of information floating around about which lenses are best for specific situations. We can help you sort through all of the opinions.

First and foremost is protection for your eyes! At a minimum, you should have UV400 protection to prevent long-term sun damage to your eyes.

Second, you want to ensure your lenses are polarized to cut through or eliminate glare altogether. This is the feature that allows you to see underwater objects that are impossible to spot with non-polarized glasses or the naked eye.

Finally, lens color can enhance your vision under certain conditions.  While no lens is perfect in all conditions, the list below will help guide you to select the lens that most closely matches your predominant use.  

Blue Mirror:
Great for the open water. Encapsulated mirrors deliver maximum contrast and color in full sun while eliminating glare.

Green Mirror:
A great choice for enhanced visual acuity for fishing inshore, flats, rivers and streams.

Amber Mirror:
Excellent all-around lens that delivers the brightest field of vision. Great choice for sight fishing, driving and everyday activities where high contrast is needed.

Gray:
The perfect all-around choice for sports on water and land. Maintains color saturation and natural contrast in medium to bright sun conditions.

Silver Mirror:
Encapsulated mirrors optimize light transmission and enhance colors. Perfect for freshwater sight fishing or any outdoor activity with variable light.
