The frames are made from walnut and oak, with a layer of aluminium through the middle. This adds strength, whilst keeping these lightweight. And they are incredibly light.
Carl Zeiss are one of the the oldest optic manufacturers (100 years+). Polarised lenses works particular well for water based activities, where the polarised lens not only protects your eyes, but improves your vision; especially on grey or bright days.
As with all Dewerstone glasses, the Orton signature models come supplied with a soft fabric bag for cleaning and a neat bamboo storage box.
I’ve been using these as my main sunglasses for the last few months and I have found them to be super comfy and the clarity of the lenses is superb. The shape of the arm results in the glasses sitting very securely on my head, that said I would want a strap if using them on the water. There is also something quite nice about being able to smell wood when you where them!
These limited edition glasses retail at £89.95 including free world wide delivery.
If you didn’t know Dewerstone are UK based and are heavily involved in supporting grassroots kayaking/canoeing. A cut from the sales of these glasses go towards supporting Bren on hi journey to world wide kayak domination.
