Quality sunglasses are an essential for any serious sailor. Polarized sunglasses protect your eyes from UV and help you see puffs on the water. If you are a cruiser or racer spending long days on the water, good sailing sunglasses will protect your eyes, reduce eye fatigue, and improve your vision. Floating sunglasses provide an extra level of reassurance in case your shades go in the drink. Sailing sunglasses with rugged frames and strong lenses are less likely to shatter when they get dropped or banged around on the boat. We at Mauri Pro offer a wide selection of sailing sunglasses and floating sunglasses, all specifically designed for sailing by top manufacturers. Sailing sunglasses with dark grey lenses are best for everyday use in sunny conditions, as they block more bright light and don't distort colors. Lenses with shades of brown filter out more blue light, so you get enhanced contrast against blue water and blue skies, and more reddish tints are best for cloudy day sailing.
