Polarization
Glare is caused by concentrated light reflecting off surfaces like water, roads, snow and ice. Glare reduces your ability to see clearly, and makes it nearly impossible to see in the water.

Most of the light reflected as glare is horizontally polarized. Unlike ordinary sunglasses, which admit just as much reflected light as desireable light, Hobie Polarized Sunglasses filter out glare and transmit only the light you need, providing increased visual clarity and reduced eyestrain. World champions rely on Hobie Polarized to provide a competitive edge. That's the Hobie Polarized advantage!
