The Good: Super clear, crisp polarization, and they look damn good.
The Bad: Nose pads get caught in long hair.
The Classic: The look on your friend’s face when they can’t see the fish past the glare with their cheapo sunglasses.
When you’re out on the water, or playing in the snow a good set of sunglasses is a must. That blinding glare is not only painful, but can be dangerous to your eyes, and a day out there can really leave a mark on those baby blues. That’s where a set of quality polarized sunglasses really make the difference. We took the Native Haskill sunglasses out on some fall water adventures, then drove a few hundred miles with them, and finally stopped long enough to write down our thoughts. The Native Haskill sunglasses are designed to cut the glare and let you really see the world in a different light. Polarized lenses deliver a crisp, deep color range that really brings out the color and detail in water and everywhere else. We loved the reflective lenses from a style standpoint, and really dug how well they cut the sun while making colors crisp and vibrant. The glasses are light and durable enough (as durable as glasses can be) to tag along on plenty of adventures, but look great enough to be a daily go-to for anything you do under the sun. A drawback for those with long hair, is the tendency for the nose pads to get caught up when worn on top of the head, but that’s really a small sticking point that can be remedied by bringing a case or lens bag along for protection in a pack or jacket pocket.
Overall, you’re going to love the Native Haskill sunglasses if you’re looking for something to get the most out of the view while keeping your eyes protected and comfortable, and want to look damn good doing it.
