Our second line of sunglasses is a “Boston type” designed more for town use.
This is a casual line featuring a lightweight design for use in the field along with the polarized high-contrast lenses which are synonymous with OWLMILS.
"Polarized lenses have a special structure which filters excess light without increasing the density
of the lenses themselves. They also block harmful ultraviolet light, making them excellent lenses to
protect and maintain the health of your eyes.
These photos shows the difference in clarity between normal lenses versus the same polarized lenses we use in our products. Whether you're driving or looking at the surface of the water when fishing, these lenses provide much clearer vision."
Our lenses are made from a high-performance polycarbonate material.
This material has the following three characteristics:
High transparency, with a visible light transmittance of 80-90% [※1], classifying it as a
highly transparent material.
(transparency comparison - polycarbonate: 86%, glass: 92%)
[※1] This is the visible light transmittance of the material in its clear state. Normal polarized lenses have a visible light transmittance of around 20%, but the lenses “Earth Green” and “Purple Gray” used by OWLMILS have a visible light transmittance of 31-32%. This ensures clear visibility even in cloudy weather.
Superior weather resistance, suitable for outdoor use. Especially suitable for harsh environments such as while mountain climbing. Won't crack or break easily, even if struck by small stones, thus preventing possible injury.
