Waterhaul | Fitzroy sunglasses

Recycled frames
Our Kynance frames are made in Italy and contain 0% virgin plastics, 100% recycled fishing nets that were reclaimed and hand-picked directly from the coast. The frames have three barrel hinges for maximum durability. Our frames are covered by our Lifetime “Recycle and Replace” warranty – damaged frame components can go back into our plastic recycling circuit to create new pairs. The frames come in a matte dark gray, and being 100% recycled, each pair has a unique and subtle pattern of spots that hints at their origin.

Polarized mineral glass
We have combined our Kynance frames with very high quality polarized glass lenses. While the majority of Waterhaul customers come for our recycled frames, the glass lenses are what differentiates the Waterhaul sunglass experience and keeps customers for life. We support glass for three key reasons:

– Optical glass is the clearest lens – the medium through which we can view the world – no other lens material matches its optical clarity. The optical performance of a lens can be measured by its “Abbe Value” – the degree to which light is scattered as it enters a lens. Mineral glass has an Abbe value of 59, the highest of any optical lens material. Plastic lenses, such as polycarbonate, have a value of 32. This clarity ensures the clearest possible perception of details, colors, and contrasts.

– Exceptional resistance to scratches. The “Mohs hardness scale” is a measure of a material’s resistance to scratches, expressed on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 is diamond). Scratches can only be produced by contact with higher value Mohs materials. Mineral glass has a Mohs value of 6.0. In comparison, conventional plastic lens materials like CR39 and polycarbonate have Mohs values ranging from 3.0 to 3.2.

– Sustainability. Glass is a natural material that can be endlessly recycled in any glass recycling collection. The most common optical lens material, CR39, is a plastic resin that is currently not recycled in Europe, despite the annual production of CR39 lenses in the hundreds of thousands of pairs of lenses.

Waterhaul’s Italian-made glass lenses offer a full spectrum of UVA and UVB protection. The lenses are fully polarized, eliminating glare from reflective surfaces in water, snow, and wet roads.

We have audited the entire supply chain and you will receive your new pair in trouble free and damage free recycled wood pulp packaging.

Each pair includes a flat folding magnetic hard case made from sustainable cork.
