Shades! More precisely, polarized shades. It is so important that your sunglasses are polarized that we stopped selling many famous brands that don't offer polarized lenses. Others have such meager offerings in polarized shades that they just aren't worth carrying anymore. When you're spending top dollar with our hard earned money, you don't deserve to get ripped off by big name companies that manufacture low performance junk shades.

Hobie Sunglasses
 

Hobie Sunglasses are well known in Atlantic County, N.J. because we've been selling them since day one. Hobie Alter (of Hobie Cat Sailboat fame) was as frustrated as I was at the lack of real quality polarized sunglasses available on the market so he decided to do something about it. Hobie offers a wide variety of frames and lenses in both polycarbonate and optical glass. Glass is the only way to go if you're tough on your lenses like me. I fish, surf or kayak every day and dried salt in no match for a glass lens. Just rinse it off in fresh water and they're like the first day you took them out of the case.

Smith sunglasses are made in Idaho and have been an icon in the skiing industry for many years. They have taken over the surfing and fishing market with their youthful styles and high quality polarized lenses. A lifetime warranty makes them even more desirable.
 


Coasta's as they are affectionately called need no introduction. Most professional fishing captains and mates will not wear any other sunglass. A little pricier than many other brands but considered one of the finest polarized sunglasses on the planet.
 


Flying Fisherman - little known brand out of the Florida keys with a lot of value. Flying Fisherman used to make the best cheap sunglasses on the market but has recently expanded into high end glass and polycarbonate lenses. Everything is polarized and costs about 1/2 what their competitors charge for similar quality.
