Waviators - Sunglasses that Float!

When I get out on the lake, creek, or estuary, I take full advantage of my liberation from the rules of landlubber society. I never let fear of tipping the boat keep me from getting wild - especially now that my sunglasses float. Now which one of you scurvy sea dogs wants to wrassle?!?

Sunglasses marketed for use specifically near water; and they aren't polarized. This strikes me as a tragic oversight.

Needless to say, I won't be getting a pair.

agreed, though they would probably be a bit pricier...

I'd be willing to pay up for polarized! You can get polarized sunglases for $20 or less at Walmart and Target, so it can't cost that much more.

I wish these were polarized as well.

On the Waviators website you can buy one from the 2Tone collection, or you can buy two glasses from Woot for $1 less and make two of your own!

So if I wanted more than one pair, in different colors, how would I do that exactly?

Place two separate orders - one for each color. Shipping should still be just $5 total.

I wonder if these floaters would do as well in the pool as, say... a Baby Ruth (cue Jaws musical theme).

Do these float well enough for small-medium surf? Especially in LA where water quality and visibility can be terrible. I only saw one video of them floating from the bottom of a pool and it looks like they were being helped by bubbles http://vimeo.com/47247737. It seems like EVERY time they show them being dropped in water, they don't show them floating back up. I'd love a pair of sunglasses that float but, based on the vids, these seem more like they just don't sink

Float:
a. To remain suspended within or on the surface of a fluid without sinking

only if they were polarized and the frames were black.

anyone else get the ad for the "grown" wooden sunglasses on this page? they float too! (made from sustainably grown wood) are polarized, and every sale funds either a sight restoring surgery or 12 eye exams for folks in poor countries.
but they are $124.

These are garbage. They're not even dollar store quality. They have to be the cheapest shades I've ever seen. Woot, you really burned me this time. I should've listened to other reviews...

I was skeptical, and thought they looked cheap, but bought a pair anyway. Glad I did. I used them at the lake last weekend, and not only were they comfortable & distortion-free, but they float really well! We could easily see them (white pair) floating in the water from about 50ft. away. Great for water sports, SUP, wave runner, etc. Not bad at all for $12+.
