Ombraz sunglasses are becoming popular choice for fishermen for a couple of reasons. They are lightweight, durable, and importantly, they are armless, meaning they are held in place by a cinch strap that goes around your head. This makes them very secure and prevents them from falling off, even when you are casting or fighting a fish.

Ombraz frames are made from a flexible TR-90 Aerospace-grade nylon material that can withstand being dropped, stepped on, or even sat on. The lenses are also scratch-resistant (but not impenetrable), making them ideal for use in outdoor environments. They offer a variety of lens options, but the polarized yellow or polarized brown are recommended for fishing. Ombraz also offers removable side and nose shields to decrease light entry.

They can be hard to put on or take off if you are carrying your rod as tightening and loosening requires two hands. The strap can become nearly as tight on your head as traditional sunglass arms, and the lenses do fog up with the best of them–even worse with the side shields in place. And I’ve found them easy to lose, but that’s probably just me.

The Classic–Frost frames are my favorite–they do look pretty badass. The Teton frames provide a unisex with a traditional look, and the Leggeros are an aviator-style frame that run large for big heads.

Overall, I really do like this innovation, but that doesn’t mean I never go back to my armed sunglasses. But if you’re looking for a clever lightweight easy-to-stash option, get yourself a pair of Ombraz.
