Boating sunglasses are specifically designed for boaters and anglers. The best sunglasses have lightweight plastic or metal frames and glass or plastic lenses that are either colored or tinted to filter the sun’s bright light. Boating sunglasses protect the eyes from the harmful UV rays of the sun, reduce glare reflected on the water, and help improve vision.
Types of Boating Sunglasses
Kinds of Boating Sunglasses include the following:
Polarized boating sunglasses
Multiple-base polarized boating sunglasses provide excellent glare protection. They are ideal for open waters with high, distracting glares. Polarized hydrophobic boating sunglasses
Polarized hydrophobic boating sunglasses are ideal for open waters. Their lenses protect the eyes from glare and significantly improve vision.
Choosing Boating Sunglasses (Buying tips)
UV protection: Choose boating sunglasses that offer at least 98% protection from the sun's harmful UV rays. Sunglasses with lower UV protection do not adequately protect your eyes.
Polarization: Choose boating sunglasses with maximum polarization to eliminate the intense glare of the sun reflected on the water, so you can see clearly even below the water’s surface. However, be careful when choosing the color of the lenses because some colors can distort the appearance of the environment.
Comfort and fit: Choose boating sunglasses with no-slip temples, an adjustable floating strap, and rubber nose pads that keep them firmly in place
