through the looking glasses

Going sailing without sunglasses is like leaving home without your cell phone – unthinkable! And as bitchin as most of the new sunglasses are, they are, at least from the “name” brand, wildly overpriced. And our experience dealing with Kaenon and Oakley, just to name a few,  has been forgettable at best.

For years, we used and promoted Dirty Dog – a low cost, good looking and quite functional option. For some reason, they fell off the map, and have been using Hobie of late- a really nice choice in our opinion.

The other day we tried a couple of  pretty cool looking polarized, Guideline Eyegear glasses (yes, they need a better name) and we gotta say we liked them a ton, especially at the price point of $69 bucks.  Those are the Eclipse, pictured left, our current fav.

So screw the overpriced, trendy, arrogant “name brands” and look elsewhere. You’re gonna drop those spendy glasses on their lens anyway!
