POLARIZED MINERAL GLASS
We’ve paired our Kynance frames with extremely high quality, polarized, glass lenses. Whilst most of Waterhaul’ s customers come for our recycled frames, the glass lenses are what sets the experience of wearing Waterhaul sunglasses truly apart and keeps customers for life. We stand by glass for three key reasons.
- Optical glass is the clearest lens-medium through which we can observe 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 dispersed when entering a lens. Mineral glass has an Abbe Value of 59, the highest of any optical lens material. Plastic lenses, like polycarbonate, have a value of 32. This clarity ensures the clearest possible perception of details, colours and contrasts
- Exceptional scratch-resistance. The ‘Mohs hardness scale’ is a measure of the resistance of a material to scratching, expressed on a 1 – 10 scale (10 being diamond). Scratches can only occur from contact with materials with a higher Mohs value. Mineral glass has a Mohs value of 6.0. In comparison, conventional plastic lens materials such as CR39 and polycarbonate have Mohs values ranging from 3.0 – 3.2.
- Glass is a natural material that can be infinitely 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 annual CR39 lens production in the hundreds of thousands of lens pairs.
- Waterhaul’ s Italian made glass lenses offer full spectrum UVA and UVB protection. The lenses are fully polarized, eliminating glare from reflective surfaces of water, snow, and wet roads.
Our product and packaging supply chain is free from single-use plastic – we’ve audited the full length of our supply chain and you’ll receive your new pair in hassle and harm free recycled wood-pulp packaging.
Each pair includes a free magnetic fold-flat hard case made from sustainable cork.

I bought a pair of these for my wife and they looked great. The only slight issue was that very quickly the hinge got quite loose (i.e. didn't grip the side of her head at all). We were canoeing and she lent over to look at a fish and they immediately fell in and sank. Not a net littering a coastline any more, but at the bottom of a river. Good glasses however, and will buy a replacement pair.
These are really fantastic sunglasses all round. They feel sturdy, look incredibly stylish and the polarised lenses work[...]
Theyre really comfortable, I hardly know Im wearing them. I like how they look and they keep the glare out.
Amazing sunnies! Super light and comfortable to wear, great quality and.. Best feeling knowing that they contribute to c[...]
My husband and I each bought a pair of Waterhaul sunglasses. I have the Kynance and I'm really happy with them. The lenses are so clear, I forget I am wearing glasses sometimes! Especially as I was worried glass lenses might make the pair heavy, but it doesn't. I was also a bit apprehensive when buying sunglasses without trying them on first but nope, they look as great as they feel! (as you can see on the pic - fyi my husband is wearing the Crantock)
