Little is more disheartening than inadvertently dropping a favored pair of sunglasses into a river or lake and helplessly watching style and sun protection sink out of sight. That’s why Hobie® Eyewear created an entire Floating Collection of fishing and outdoor lifestyle sunglasses.
The sunglasses’ floatability stems from these glasses being incredibly light, which also translates into enhanced comfort. It is important to note that quality nor durability is not sacrificed for affordability and being lightweight. Hobie® Eyewear’s engineering, material choices, and understanding of eyewear allow for the creation of premium sunglasses that are light enough to float and can be sold at a surprising cost, with prices starting at $89.99.
The Hobie® Eyewear Floating Collection includes five frame designs – Monarch Float, Mojo Float, Bluefin Float, Coastal Float and Mariposa Float – each with multiple lens color options.
Monarch Float sunglasses, which come in Satin Black and Satin Metallic, can be worn with or without removable side shields to block extra light or open peripheral views, depending on the situation, and include an adjustable retainer system. Monarch Float provides an ideal answer for the angler who fishes both shallow and deep and sometimes wants maximized ability to see details beneath the surface and other times wants an enhanced opportunity to see clues from all directions.
Mojo Float models are extra-large, with a wrap-around design to block peripheral light and feature premium polarized nylon lenses. Frame color options include Satin Black and Shiny Brown Wood Grain. Mojo Float excels for highly visual fishing styles ranging from fly-fishing trout waters to working shallow weed lines to sight casting on saltwater flats.
Bluefin Float, also a wrap-around style, is Hobie® Eyewear’s largest frame, creating an outstanding fit for larger faces and maximizing protection. Designed with sportsmen in mind, Bluefin Float is available in five lens colors to match varying situations and conditions. Bluefin Float offers maximum protection for anglers who spend long days on the open water and blocks extra light for sight-casting applications.
Coastal Float sunglasses offer style to match an outdoor lifestyle and feature polarized nylon lenses available in four lens colors. Attractive styling makes Coastal Float well-suited for walking the beach. Still, the polarized nylon lenses, a high comfort level, and durability make this model an outstanding choice for fishing and other outdoor adventures.
In addition to protecting outdoor enthusiasts against loss, the Floating Collection prevents lost sunglasses from littering lakes and rivers, aligning with Hobie® Eyewear’s ongoing sustainability efforts.
Mariposa Float is Hobie® Eyewear’s first women’s floating frame. Mariposa Float models are large, designed to block peripheral light and feature premium polarized nylon lenses. Frame color options include Shiny Black and Shiny Tortoise. Designed with sportswomen in mind, this model is an outstanding choice for all outdoor adventures.
Hobie® Eyewear Floating Collection sunglasses, like all Hobie® sunglasses, are backed by a consumer-friendly lifetime warranty.
