 When engaging in outdoor activities like fishing and sailing, it is extremely important to give your eyes the proper protection. Sailing can be especially risky because, during midday, water can give off intense reflections from the sun, which can be as dangerous as sunlight reflecting off  snow and ice.

The sun’s glare can be intense on the water, but with Polaroid sunglasses, you will be able to cut 98 percent of the sunlight that reflects off the water. Polaroid lenses have a special filter that has the ability to reduce the intensity of glare, providing clearer vision even under intense sunlight.

High performance sunglasses
