Greys' latest polarising glasses blend style, durability and functionality
RRP: £39.99-£49.99 | www.greysfishing.co.uk
Polarising glasses are an essential part of a carp angler's kit, so getting a good pair is crucial.
Greys has launched a quartet of frame options, each with their own lens colours, and they boast a range of nifty features.
The polycarbonate lenses are lightweight but durable, and won't shatter. They also have a hydrophobic coating which reduces water spots and staining, keeping your vision clear even when you get splashed.
We tested each of these four styles and found them very good at cutting glare and seeing beneath the water's surface on sunny days. However, the coloured mirror-finish versions did sometimes throw back a bit of colour in super-bright conditions.
Comfort and build quality is where these glasses stand out. They're really well made with quality hinges that inspires confidence in their longevity, and they sit easily on the face.
Style is a personal choice and will depend on the shape and size of your face, but the verdict in the office is that the G4s and G2s are the best lookers here.
The supplied hard case is handy, though you still have to be careful when chucking them in your rucksack as the case won't protect the specs from the heaviest items.
