All Gill sunglasses have been specifically designed for use on the water. Why is that important? Wearing sunglasses is a must when you’re sailing, as the sun reflects off the water, meaning you can have double the amount of glare hitting your eyes. Not only does this make this very difficult to see at the time, it can result in irreparable damage to your eyesight long-term. Gill sunglasses are some of the best sailing sunglasses available, with UV protection and 100% glare-free polarised lenses, tailored for use in watersports. As well as this, all of their sunglasses float, giving you a much better chance of rescuing them if they get knocked off your head by an unexpected gybe. They also feature hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings to repel water, salt residue and oils, so you won’t need to worry about damaging them with sun cream and salt water.
