This is one of the most common questions that we are asked. Every PBO lens is optimized to excel in a specific environment. This certainly does not mean you cannot use your sunglasses in different environments. What it means is that a Freshwater lens will show all of the same clarity and offer the same UV protection when you are chasing bonefish on the flats of Walker's Cay but there is much more to the PBO story. Here is a little food for thought. Would you use the same rod fishing for marlin as you would for rainbow trout? No? Of course, the answer is obvious, each rod has been engineered to perform best in a given environment.
At HB manipulate a lot of variables to bring PBO to life. For example, our impact resistant Hunting and Shooting collection is not a polarized lens. We do this because a polarizing filter can cause slight variations in depth of field and thus affect your shot. If you are offshore, you will need certain qualities in a lens, one being polarization. Bottom line, while our lenses perform above and beyond in the pursuit for which they were engineered. HB is the clearest best performing lenses on the market today. We guarantee it.
