Hobie La Jolla Collection
Hobie sunglasses are synonymous with outdoor fun. We got our hands (eyes) on a pair of their La Jolla collection and already declare them a winner. This is a premium nickel silver frame face with their patented Hydroclean polarized polycarbonate lenses. Adjustable silicone nose pads insure the perfect fit. Available in satin gold, satin gunmetal or satin black.
Driving to Ohio from Salt Lake City, we had ample opportunity to give them a true roadtest. I love a good polarized set of lenses and these did the job admirably. I also liked the contrast it provided while keeping the colors very natural.
Most people equate Hobie with surfing and they are certainly well known in those circles. But, Hobie offers so much more for the outdoor enthusiast. Their kayaks are legendary, whether for sailing or for fishing. They now also offer a full line of stand up paddleboards for racing and recreation. Be sure to check out their whole line or clothes and more.

This was one of the products we featured during the 2014 Outdoor Retailers Show earlier this year, and we wanted to double back and present those items that actually turned out to be as good as we thought they would be. Now that they’ve stood up during our road trips, we can recommend them unequivocally.
