The ultimate eyewear for racing on the water. So much more advanced than your standard sunglasses, these sailing sunglasses are packed with features that guarantee the best possible vision.
The lenses are scratch-resistant and polarised with additional coatings that repel water, salt, grease, oil or fingerprints, pretty much anything they might come into contact with. Vents help prevent them misting up and as with all our sunglasses, they’re designed to float, should they get knocked into the water.
Fabric / Technology
Polarized lenses are made up of a number of functional elements ultra-carefully bonded together to achieve a high-performance optical product: The main element of the sandwich lens construction is the polarizing light filter in the centre. Laminated to both sides of the filter are UV light absorbers, which block 100% of harmful UVA, UVB, and UVC radiation. Optically corrected, shatter-resistant cushion elements are laminated to both sides of the UV absorbers, followed by a unique scratch resistant coating applied to the outer surfaces. All Gill Sailing Sunglasses are engineered to float.
