Stuff going over the side is one of the hazards of sailing, but these new “Floater” polarized photochromic shades from Australia’s Barz Optics will stay on the water’s surface, even in rough conditions. Barz shades are affordable, comfortable, durable and provide superior sun protection in a wide range of conditions, with optics to match that of many other much pricier brands. Three different frame styles are available, including a very cool faux carbon-fiber weave. The glasses’ polarized photochromic lenses darken in full sun or lighten when the clouds roll in.
