Everything You Need to Know About Breakline Sunglasses

Breakline’s new sunglasses are one of the the hottest developments in the fishing industry, and they are the perfect sunglasses for some serious fishing.

I recently got the opportunity to try out a pair of lightweight polarized fishing sunglasses by Breakline, an Alabama-based company. Unlike some other products out there, Breakline sunglasses are designed by fishermen specifically for fishermen.

Their main feature is their advanced polycarbonate lenses. Made by Zeiss (yes, the same German company that makes high quality rifle scopes and binoculars), the Z-920 lenses on Breakline sunglasses provide some of the clearest and sharpest vision possible from any pair of modern sunglasses with polycarbonate lenses. These lenses are quite durable and scratch resistant as well.

Since they are designed for use by serious fishermen, Breakline sunglasses are also polarized and have an anti-reflective coating in order to reduce glare and eyestrain. They are also extremely lightweight, comfortable, and easy to wear. Finally, they’re pretty cool looking and are available in a variety of colors and styles.

I can say firsthand that my pair of Breakline sunglasses is the best set of shades that I’ve ever owned. There is a vast difference between them and the countless other sunglasses that I’ve used over the years.


Breakline sunglasses are marketed as being specifically designed to allow you to spend countless hours on the water with a minimum amount of discomfort and they certainly lived up to the hype when I was using them. Over the course of several lengthy salmon fishing trips on Puget Sound in bright and sunny conditions, they performed flawlessly and were extremely comfortable.

Not only did they reduce discomfort and eyestrain due to sun glare, but they also noticeably improved by ability to see action beneath the water’s surface. While this ability was not extremely important for fishing the deep waters of Puget Sound, this becomes a much bigger factor when fishing shallower water.

In addition to their outstanding performance, Breakline sunglasses also come with a great warranty program. They have a lifetime warranty against any type of damage. Additionally, for a nominal fee, they will also replace one pair of sunglasses if you lose them, which is an outstanding deal that I’ve never seen elsewhere.

All in all, after a summer of great fishing while using Breakline sunglasses, I can say with certainty that they’re the last brand of polarized sunglasses that I ever intend to use.

If you are in the market for a new pair of polarized fishing sunglasses, I strongly suggest giving them a shot. Whether you intend to use them to fish for trout in mountain streams, redfish in the Gulf of Mexico, or bass in a lake in Alabama, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed with the performance of your Breakline sunglasses.
