Modeled on the design of the popular Glacier glasses, Heron Ocean features the iconic leather side shields and the distinctive frame shape that evoke images of adventurers and explorers of the past.
Much like the reflective icy terrain up in the mountains, life at sea also demands enhanced protection from side glare and dazzling sunlight that can cause serious discomfort and eyestrain.
We adapted the Glacier model to meet this need, optimizing the original design to perform at the highest level whether you are sailing, kayaking, fishing, or stand-up paddleboarding.
A high-quality lens.
A polarized, category 3 lens made from shatterproof polycarbonate not only ensures protection from 100% of all UVA and UVB rays up to 400 nm but also enhances contrasts and gives superior optical clarity.
There is the choice of either a dark grey (Black frame) or mirror-coated lens (Blue frame), with both also being treated with an anti-fog coating to prevent any performance-hindering clarity issues.
Durable, with a comfortable fit.
A prerequisite for sports sunglasses is durability, and life on the water is not always plain sailing. Heron Ocean has been engineered using a lightweight, Swiss-invented, TR90® nylon frame that can withstand the tough physical tests of an outdoor lifestyle.
Alongside a powerful lens and protective side-shields, it is vital to have eyewear that fits comfortably, especially when worn for extended periods of time. The rubber-covered ear temples on the Heron Ocean can be adjusted to enable a better, more comfortable experience.
Keeping the oceans plastic-free.
And finally, it is well documented about the impact plastic waste is having on our planet and in particular, the oceans. We partner with Empower to ensure that for every pair of eyewear we sell, a minimum of 1kg of plastic waste is cleaned up.
These clean-ups take place across the world and provide employment for impoverished communities as well as stopping plastic from entering the marine ecosystem.
The Heron Ocean are delivered (in plastic-free packaging) and arrive with a sturdy faux-leather case and presentation box, so on the rare occasion you want to take them off, they are safe from prying eyes!
