Share the Why polarised sunglasses are a must have article:
The benefits of polarised lenses when angling is unquestionable.
Not only do the polarised lens removes the glare on the water, they also allow you to see down below the surface, making fish spotting much easier as objects will appear more defined, sharper and naturally coloured.
As an angler, sitting on the bank without eye protection is dangerous as harmful UV rays damage the delicate surface of the eye. All anglers should consider wearing sun-glasses, and those who opt for Polarised ones will soon see the advantages!
Despite a common misconception, you're actually still at risk on an overcast day. Most people think that they're only affected by UV rays when outside on a sunny day, but UV light can go right through clouds, so it doesn't matter if the sky is overcast.

Glare and reflections from the lake can cause problems for your eyes, so always have your sunglasses ready when fishing.
The sunglasses have a UV400 rating, providing complete protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays.
The colour of the lens entirely your personal choice and doesn't affect how well these sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun's UV light. Gray and brown are popular among anglers because they distort colour perception the least. Many believe that the darkness of the lens is what will offer the greatest level of protection for eyes. However, the degree of darkness has no effect on the protection from UV rays. For adequate protection, you need to buy sunglasses that have a high UV rating. The Innovations are rated to UV400– which is above the European recommended level of UV380nM.
Available with grey or brown lenses in Sports or Classic frames, our sunglasses are supplied in a robust hard case with lanyard.
Please note: No sunglasses are sufficient to protect the eyes against permanent harm from looking directly at the Sun
