Dirty Dog water sunnies

Eyewear suitable for going afloat has been around for what seems like ages. The main issue with these type of specs is their style – or lack there off. Dirty Dog are bucking that trend with a range of cool wrap around sunglasses that look the mutts nuts and perform to boot.

Dirty Dog water jacket sunglasses are perfect for those into racing, distance, downwind, fishing or general recreational paddling. Being in such an elevated position we as paddlers are completely at the mercy of reflective UV as it bounces off the surface of the water. Having a specific pair of sunnies to fend off this attack is vital for the longevity of our sight and improved paddling experience.

Dirty Dog produce a range of suitable specs that all come with adjustable head bands – easily removable and adjustable elastic is both comfortable and practical. Uber stylish good looks mean a pair of these babies are not only suitable for on the water, they’re also apt for lounging at the beach or general day to day wear.

Testing the Dirty Dogs in a range of SUP environments we were completely confident with how securely they attach to your bonce. Although we never tried them in smacking surf, small to moderate waves were fine without fear of them dropping in the drink.

CONCLUSION
Well manufactured in lightweight materials with coated polarised lenses for super clarity, Dirty Dog’s sea specs range is extensive, stylish and completely apt for stand up paddlers. We’d recommend them in all but the heaviest of surf environments as they’ll help protect your eyes from harmful UV and give you a more comfortable paddling experience when the sun’s got his hat on. They’re also great for prescription lenses – speak to your optician for further details.
