Here's the magazine article that prompted me to try out the FishGillz..Everything in the article is true and I couldn't be happier.
New From Fishgillz™ - Floating Polarized Sunglasses
Laguna Beach, CA, (Fishgillz Inc.)** August 10, 2007 -- A sunglass company in Southern California, has created a unique pair of polarized sunglasses that actually float in water. Jeff Godels, company VP said, " We*wanted sunglasses specifically designed for boaters and fishermen. Our objective was to address 4 areas of concern: Maximum Protection, Ultimate Comfort, a Floating Feature, and we wanted to provide these features at an affordable price. "
Weighing only 1/2 of an ounce, FishGillz are extremely comfortable.The sleek, wrap-around frame*protects the user from wind, pelting water, and harmful UV rays. The glasses are made of a durable, polymer blend that float when dropped overboard, and FishGillz provides all this for under $40.
"Most Fishermen and boaters spend long days out in the sun, so our focus was on comfort, and more importantly, protection from the intense sunlight*that reflects off the water, " Godels said, " We got the idea for the floating feature after talking to several friends who lost expensive sunglasses in the ocean.
FishGillz uses a*multi-layer, high-impact lense, that*includes a dual anti-reflective layer, a scratch resistant hard coat, a water-proof layer, and a polarized micro-filter that provides*total protection for the user.

**" While wearing other sunglasses on my boat,*I had problems with*wind getting behind the frames and hitting my eyes. With Fishgillz, I don't have that problem, and the polarized lenses completely filter out the glare. Over the years I've watched several pairs of shades disappear*into the ocean, so the floating feature is important to me.
I*have been a ship’s Captain (professionally and personally), master diver and all around yachtsman for over 40 years. I put FishGillz to the test, and give them an A+ rating*in the world of sunglasses. "
Fishgillz were created for water-related sports, but because of their ultra*light, wrap around sport frames, and distortion-free polarized lenses, they can be used for any and all types of outdoor activities.* The website site is available at www.FishGillzUSA.com
