Any kayak angler, or fisherman for that matter, will tell you that a quality pair of polarized sunglasses are a must while out on the water. Polarized sunglasses offer a variety of benefits for any angler to include reduced glare from the sun on the water to aiding the angler when seeing the fish in the water. There are many brands out there, but we’re going to take a look at the optics offered by Salt Life and distributed by Bimini Bay Outfitters.
I’m one of those types of guys who simply cannot be outside or on the water without a pair of sunglasses and the tan lines prove it. The Marathon sunglasses from Salt Life Optics are an amazing accessory to use while out on the water. They’re extremely lightweight, provide amazing protection on the eyes, and have an exceptional clarity about them. There have been many instances when paddling my kayak or poling a shallow flat in search of redfish and forget that I’m even wearing them due to how lightweight they are. Made with scratch resistant lenses, and from the Italian makers, Zeiss, these will sunglasses will provide you an added advantage while on the water. They’re simple and clean and wrap around to block he sunlight from intruding on the side of your eyes. They offer a repellent seal on the front of the lenses to offer clear sight, and offer a treatment on the back of the lenses to prevent marking or scratches. The Marathons won’t leave your wallet aching either and are an amazing value for the price.
