Despite yesterday’s freak snow squall, spring is just around the corner, which means it’s almost time to get back on the water. And, if you love to sail, kayak, or canoe, you know that sunglasses are, unfortunately, a frequent casualty to water sports. But, I recently found a striking solution (and it doesn’t involve a tether or a giant cork bobber). These bamboo sunglasses by Maka Wear are a stylish way to enjoy time spent on the water, plus… they float!
Drop them over the side of your boat or board and you can quickly retrieve them. The featherweight bamboo also makes wearing them oh-so-comfortable. If you’ve ever worn sunglasses that were heavy, you know what a headache they can be (literally!). Wearing these bamboo sunglasses, even all day, is completely effortless.
Of course, these glasses are also so chic. They have a bit of the retro look made famous by another water enthusiast, John F. Kennedy. But, the bamboo infuses them with a brand new and very cool vibe. It’s the perfect combination of old and new.
The bamboo itself is stained a rich, dark brown. And, they are sanded down to a finish so smooth and polished, you might not believe they are actually bamboo! I love that since this is an organic material, every pair is unique. So, the grain detailing varies from pair to pair.
Cool as they are, sunglasses are made to protect your eyes, not just look good. Luckily, these lenses are polarized, which is essential for the constant glare encountered in water sports. The lenses are also quite dark, which I rather like. Most importantly, they provide 100% UV protection, as well as anti-UVA anti-UVB.
These bamboo sunglasses would make an exceptional gift for fast approaching holidays such as Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. And, a newly minted graduate would certainly appreciate a pair as a graduation gift, too.
If you do give these as a gift, they arrive in a gorgeous bamboo gift box with a slide top. Plus, there’s a microfiber cleaning pouch for stowing glasses in the car console or boat tote. The presentation is exceptional! Retail: $64.95
