    These are perfect sunglasses. 2nd pair of Electric shades for me. The thing with Electric is that you are working with a company that believe it or not...they actually care about the customer and the person wearing the shades! Crazy I know. I emailed with some downright dumb questions and Phong in Customer Service was always super nice to work with. Cheers!!!

    Electric California hooked it up again! These all-year round shades fit a Hardknox persona with a hint of class. Customer Service dealt me a fresh deal when my previous pair kinda got wonky. Fong and Joel worked with me and definitely let me know that Customers truly are first on their list. Again, I will be promoting Electric Sunglasses til the day I die.

    Amazing glasses. Super fun and great for multiple activities. The only thing better than the glasses themselves is the exceptional customer service that comes with them. Everyone should own a pair.

    Best sunglasses ever! I have owned many pairs of shades in my life and these are far superior. In general, electric sunglasses are the best glasses I have ever owned. Their customer service is also second to none, any issue you might have they go above and beyond to make sure you're happy. I will be a electric customer for life!

    Holy shit! These are the greatest sunglasses on Earth for checking out the surf and the local sun-kissed-long-butts. Electric, do not stop making these. They're the perfect retro style frames without looking like every other chump out there. I own 4 polarized pairs, just in case they discontinue them for some reason (which I hope they never will). As long as Electric keeps making the Hardknox, I will be a returning customer.

Polarization

ELECTRIC PREMIUM POLARIZED LENSES

ELECTRIC PREMIUM POLARIZED LENSES

Amplified light reflections on water and snow can be blinding and dangerous. If fishing, they can mean the difference between seeing your catch hook up or swim away. For a day on the beach, they can mean headaches and fatigue. Our polarized lenses are better than most. Like most polarized lenses, ours will reduce glare so that you can see clearly through the water surface, or across the glacier. Unlike most polarized lenses, ours use an injection process instead of a laminated layer. This means that our lenses will never delaminate, the most common failure of cheap polarized glasses.

We also infuse synthetic melanin in our lenses, bringing you the same relaxed sensation and high level harmful blue light protection found across our entire range. We call it OHM polar. We have found that adding an additional glare reducing layer of color coating to the exterior as well as hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings to the interior can provide one of the worlds best lens experiences available. We call it OHM+ Polar. And for those of you that want the full monty, we offer Glass Polarized, a top of the line experience that gives you clarity like you've never seen before. Hand polished, scratch resistance, with an anti-reflective coating, these glass lenses are the benchmark for quality, performance, visual clarity, and color brilliance.

Yes, we find that polarizing too.



Stops debilitating glare from reflective surfaces while driving or riding


Ability to see through glare on the water’s surface during activities such as fishing


Increased visual comfort and contrast during daily activities

NO GIMMICKS, NO DISTORTION, NO GLARE

NO GIMMICKS, NO DISTORTION, NO GLARE

When light is reflected off a surface, it becomes condensed, creating glare. Our Premium Polarized lenses cut this glare, offering you the clearest vision possible. Both Electric's OHM and Mineral Glass Polarized lenses eliminate 99.9% of glare, offer 100% UV protection, and provide true color perception. High color contrast and superior glare reduction, fueled with the finest degree of craftsmanship, brings you the highest quality Polarized lenses.
