The ultimate multi-purpose fishing shades!

Hobie’s Monarch Float Polarized Sunglasses are the floating frame with versatile performance, protecting your eyes from the sun’s harsh ultraviolet rays while delivering superior fishing results with uncompromising style.

“These glasses are something special, and the more you wear them, the more you realise that,” says Dylan Coates, Hobie Eyewear’s senior marketing coordinator. “Essentially, we’ve combined the best features from our best fishing frame and best floating frame to create one super pair of sunglasses that can be worn on the water as well as in casual settings.”

Hobie Eyewear was the first to market with polarised fishing glasses in 1982 and continues to lead the field today. They drew on their extensive experience when designing the NEW Monarch Float. Monarch Float, like all of their polarised eyewear, is designed to filter out the sun’s unseen but harmful UV rays, providing 100 percent UV A, B, and C protection. But, according to Coates, Hobie Eyewear goes above and beyond. “All of our sunglass lenses are treated on both the front and back with Hobie’s Hydro 360 coating, which sheds water and oils, including sunscreen lotion, for easy cleaning and minimal smudging.” We also offer sculpted lenses for greater personalization and the ability to match varying sunlight conditions, such as as early in the morning, midday, and late afternoon or evening. Each of these factors may necessitate special considerations for your sunglasses to perform optimally.”
