Gill designs a new collection of floatable sunglasses

Gill, a technical sailing clothing specialist has designed a new collection of floatable sunglasses, offering additional technical features to its range.  Specifically designed for use on the water, the new collection provide maximum UV protection, through high quality 100% glare free polarised lenses, and have been designed with comfort and style in mind.

Polaroid's polarising lenses are bonded together to achieve a high-performance optical product: The main element of the sandwich lens construction is the polarizing light filter in the centre. Laminated to both sides of the filter are UV light absorbers, which block 100% of harmful UVA, UVB, and UVC radiation. Optically corrected, shatter-resistant cushion elements are laminated to both sides of the UV absorbers, followed by a unique scratchproof coating applied to the outer surfaces.

A hydrophobic outer lens coating sheds water and reduces salt residue, whilst oleophobic technology is applied to the inside face, repelling fingerprints, sun lotion and skin oils all culminating to provide optimum clear vision.

Each pair of sunglasses is supplied with a soft non-scratch pouch that can also be used for cleaning the lenses and are available at £39 including VAT.
