Normally powered by a 4,800mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, it is also compatible with standard 18650 batteries should you need an instant energy refresh.

Designed with sailing in mind, these sunnies are light (just 31gm), flexible and boast a wide field of view. The indestructible, polarised, grey-tinted lenses cut the glare from the sea and their 100% UV resistance protects the wearer’s eyes from possible UVA and UVB damage.

Rubber inserts on the inside of the temples and nose provide a good grip on the face, even in windy and active situations. The nose pads are also designed to aid free air circulation, preventing them from steaming up.
