Sunglasses made of plastics are generally light in weight, but if you drop them in the river, will they sink or swim? In actual fact, almost all of them will disappear to the murky bottoms and, unless you happen to lose them in the shallows, you may never see them again.
There are two basic solutions to this problem. Firstly, you can use a retainer strap to ensure they stay about your person at all times; this is why we bundle one with the Catch Pro Silver, Black, camouflage and prescription options in our range. Secondly, you can buy Rapid Eyewear’s Float, which do what it says on the proverbial tin.
Float are manufactured from a tough polycarbonate plastic, just like most sports sunglasses, but the difference is a lighter composite that makes them simply bob around on the water if you happen to drop them. The blue Frostech lenses are polarised, and so they are perfect for fishing and at £19.99, you won’t break the bank getting your hands on a pair. The ability to simply fish them out of the water with your net instead of having to head off to spend yet more money on more fishing eyewear is an obvious plus!
