Whats the advantage of these lenses vs just getting polarized?
The blue iridium coating helps cut down the blue of the water. So you can see other colors better. Then the Iridium is paired with a base color that is specific to inshore (amber base tint) and offshore (grey base tint)
The amber is better for shallow water because it increases the contrast of objects from the bottom (usually sand) so you can pick out objects better.
The grey is better for offshore because it continues to help cut out the blue of the water so again you can pick out objects in the water better.
We have recently done a full campaign on sailing and fishing specific Oakleys which includes a full video overview. You can check it out here:
