Polarised is the way to go
on 6 May 2017
Bought these as an exact replacement to the ones I left behind in a hotel in Italy; had driven 150 miles in the hire car before realising I’d left them behind! I was so gutted I nearly took the decision to do the 300 mile round trip to get them back but I realised for the cost of the petrol I’d be well on the way to buying a brand new pair…
Anyway, whether they look cool or not or fit well is obviously dependant on the shape of an individual’s face and their taste so there’s no point spending any more time on subjective matters such as style or fit save to say they fit me snug and I look very, very cool indeed, let me tell you… It’s true. In fact I look so cool someone once mistook me for Ryan Gosling... It’s true. (Alternative fact).
Now to the objective bit… The lenses. Times past I always begrudged spending more than £40 or £50 on what essentially is a piece of wire and two plastic lenses so always avoided expensive brands. However, a few years back when I tried these new polarised lenses I realised these were more useful. These are not just safe from a UV perspective but also from subtle through to blinding glare; the difference between polarised and normal lenses is massive when performing tasks where excellent vision is paramount. For example, when driving you would not believe how much these filter out glare from the dashboard, windscreen and road (especially when the sun is reflecting off a damp surface). Normal lenses just reduce some of the glare but also all of the other detail; polarised lenses completely filter out reflective light.
Another example is when out at sea; when on a boat I noticed I could actually see deep into the clear blue water instead of being blinded by the suns reflection on the crests. I tried my wife’s normal ray bans and the glare remained and I couldn’t see anything beyond the surface.
So, these lenses are like… magic. I can’t wait until they release the x-ray version.
