Floating Sunglasses

Imagine spending hundreds of dollars on a brand-new pair of water sunglasses. Imagine you have done the research and you know why investing in a good pair of polarized sunglasses for fishing, sailing sunglasses, hydrofoil, windsurfing glasses, and so on makes sense. You’ve done the math, and it’s a no-brainer that pro sunglasses will up your game and protect your sight. Imagine not checking that you have purchased floating sunglasses. Imagine seeing your investment sinking to the bottom of the ocean after a particularly nasty wipe out.

Will My Polarized Sunglasses Float? - That is the Question...

It doesn’t bear thinking about, does it? At LiP, we love what we do – which is make the best polarized sunglasses for marine pastimes, but we would love you to be able to keep hold of your prized LiP shades. That’s why every model we make are either floating polarized sunglasses or they come with a retention leash.

As keen water sportspeople ourselves, we have designed the product to be fit for purpose. That’s why we pride ourselves on our floating eyewear, which performs at pro-level in terms of eye protection and enhanced vision on the water but will also stick around when you come undone.

What's the Difference Between Standard Eyewear and Floating Sunglasses?

The main difference between sunglasses that float in water and those that don’t is weight. Obviously! We make three main models for a range of aquatic pursuits including windsurfing, sailing, jet ski-ing, fishing, kite surfing… The list goes on! Our three models are Flo, Typhoon and Surge.

Flo is the only floating sunglasses model which we make. It’s perfect for fair weather days, light winds, gentle currents and so on. SUP boarders and Flo go together like peanut butter and jelly, but fans of Flo include coastal fishermen, jet skiers and so on. If you want boating sunglasses that float – go with Flo!

You can select the perfect lenses for your Flo product some of which are polarized, some of which are tinted for specific meteorological conditions. All are scratch resistant, UV protective, waterproof and are custom fitted in your durable Flo frame. If your shades come off, they will float at the surface waiting for you to retrieve them. Typhoon and Surge are heavier duty products – made for when the surf’s up, winds are high, and you need something a bit more robust. It would be physically impossible to meet the demand for durability in a lightweight model, which is why we have a retention leash fitted to every pair. This fail-safe mechanism means that however bad the wipe out, however rough the sea, however strong the current, your shades will stay with you.
