Oceanside, CA – “Form or function?” Hobie® Eyewear answers, “both,” believing anglers should NEVER have to choose which option is best for sunglasses. Hobie® Eyewear is highly visible and an undeniable part of an angler’s “look” but also provides protection and serves a role for fishing success.

The common denominator is an unparalleled value for sportsman’s sunglasses, starting at $79.99 for premium features, exceptional durability and comfort, and 100-percent UV protection.

Hobie® Eyewear frames are light and designed to maximize comfort. Most important, from the standpoint of fishing success, these lenses provide exceptional views beneath the surface to search out gamefish and forage and study depth breaks and cover ranging from boulders to submerged vegetation.
