Sunglasses from Lost Paddle
Wearing sunglasses when you’re out on the water is important. It protects your eyes and increases safety by helping you to see upcoming obstacles more clearly. However, when kayaking, you can’t just choose any sunglasses. You need glasses that will stay firmly on your head, that won’t sink if dropped into the water, and that are equipped to deal with the other rigors of kayaking. And, fortunately for you, here at Lost Paddle Kayak Shop, we’ve got plenty of great options.
First things first, the best sunglasses for kayaking are polarized sunglasses. These are sunglasses that are designed to block horizontal light. This is the type of light you’re likely to encounter while kayaking due to the glare from the water.
This glare can make it hard to see. Plus, it’s bad for your eyes. But, with polarized sunglasses, you can protect your eyes and see every approaching challenge easily. In fact, with a really good pair of polarized sunglasses, you can even see right through the surface of the water!
In addition to being polarized, kayak sunglasses also need to be incredibly strong. The water can get very forceful when kayaking, but sunglasses made specifically for the sport, and not just for normal use, can stand up to it.
Good kayaking sunglasses are made of strong materials, such as specialty nylon, that protects them and you from the water and its power.
Finally, for kayaking, you want sunglasses that will float if you drop them in the water. While having sunglasses with a quality strap can prevent this from happening, water adventures can be unpredictable. Thus, it’s wise to prepare for anything and have sunglasses that easily be retrieved if dropped.
