FLOATING Frames - Clearer than Glass - Light as a Feather - Tough as a Rock

Rheos Nautical Eyewear shades are outfitted with the latest innovation in sunglass technology: Nylon Optics. No Better Lens. No Better Price. Our Nylon Optics capture all the benefits of a glass and polycarbonate lens without the drawbacks. These lenses are clearer than glass and light enough to be the most comfortable shades to ever grace your face. Our lenses are rated for 120 hours of continuous exposure to humidity and saltwater, the highest in the industry.

Our shades are built around life on the water so all of our lenses offer premium polarization, 100% UV protection and are equipped with a range of VLT that will keep you protected in any environment. VLT, or Visible Light Transmission, measures the amount of light transmitted through a lens. Low VLTs offer a darker tint and higher VLTs offer a lighter tint. Different environments require different percentages of VLT in order to properly protect your eyes.

About the Brand:

Rheos Nautical Eyewear

After losing one too many pairs of expensive shades on the water, a husband and wife team out of Charleston, S.C. decided to put an end to the problem.  Since selling out of the first two floating styles in 2016, Rheos has evolved into a collection of high-performance and stylish eyewear built for the water.


We've got you covered.  The manufacturer provides a lifetime frame warranty and a Saltwater Promise 1-year lens warranty program.
