Orvis Tri-Spectrum Glass Sunglasses Midway Frame

You own different rods and reels for particular types of fishing, so why don't you own different polarized fishing sunglasses to go along with them? After your rod and reel, your sunglasses are the one piece of gear that can make a real difference between a good day and a fantastic day. That's why Tri Spectrums come in three lens colors: brown for everyday and deep-water angling; rose for spring creek and flats fishing; and copper for freestone fishing and fast-changing light conditions. Think lens color doesn't matter? Consider that rose lenses let you see bonefish on the flats or a big brown trout on spring creeks far better than any other color because of the way they accent blue and green colors. You see more fish and you see them sooner. That means more shots. Period. Same holds true with copper lenses on freestone streams. They pick up trout in that kind of cover better than do the rose glasses. But the reason the different colors make such a big difference is because Tri-Spectrums are the best angling sunglasses made. Period. Unlike most sunglass lenses, Tri-Spectrum polarized fishing sunglasses lenses are true de-centered lenses of prescription glass quality. Each lens is ground and polished from a solid block of minerals for consistency of quality and for far less distortion and greater peripheral vision than with other sunglass lenses.The lenses transmit more light at the three bands of primary colors so the contrasts between each color is sharper and clearer for the utmost definition at the edges of object and improved ability to distinguish fish from objects underwater. And the lenses are set into the Italian-made frames to all but eliminate lenses popping out. Polarized fishing sunglasses are not available in Rx. Italy.

"I bought perscription glasses via mail order. They were advertised for average to large faces but in reality are for very large faces. 5 stars for the lenses!! 2 stars for the frames. If you have a very large face this is a great product."
Response from Orvis:By Orvis Customer CareJanuary 5, 2010
Orvis Customer Service contacted this customer and apologized that these particular glasses were too wide for their face. While many of our customers appreciate the width of these frames, we suggested for those customers needing a narrower frame style to try our Midway frames. You can always purchase with confidence at Orvis where 100% satisfaction is guaranteed.

"Because I am rough on my sunglasses, I thought I needed to get by with mega outdoor store cheapo sunglasses with names like Jimmy Houston and Bill Dance embossed on the side. I decided recently to bite the bullet and make an investment in better vision on the stream and while driving.
These glasses make all the difference in the world on the stream. Spotting fish is easier because they remove so much more glare than the cheap glasses.
I would recommend them to anyone who wants a true understanding of what polarization is supposed to mean for a fisherman."
