The Mariner II and Harbor II are much more than just reading glasses. Typhoon’s Aquaview® II lens has all the features of our AquaView® hydrophobic, polarized sunglass lens. The addition of magnification to aid in reading small text or focusing on small detailed objects at close range has transformed these sunglasses into bifocal readers. AquaView® II bifocal lenses are available in reading lens magnification powers of +1.5, +2.0 and +2.5.
You’ve probably been annoyed when you need to take off your sunglasses and then put on your reading glasses. If you normally wear reading glasses to read text or for magnification purposes, and you wear sunglasses when you go outdoors, it can be a hassle. Many people voice their frustration in having to juggle the two pairs of glasses to handle these tasks. With Typhoon’s polarized sun readers, finally, you won’t need to deal with that hassle any more. You can wear them inside for reading or outside in the sun. And if you’re outside and need to read a map, label, or just magnify your close-range view, you’ll no longer have to take of your sunglasses and switch to your readers, because – guess what – they’re already on!
The AquaView® II lens is better than your standard bifocal reading lens. First of all, it is a double injected polycarbonate lens. Secondly, the reading lens is practically invisible – from a distance of a few feet away it’s barely noticeable. Next, the AquaView® II lens guards against harmful uv rays with its UV 400 rating, plus it blocks reflected glare with polarized filtration. Backed by a lifetime warranty, it beats other bifocal sun readers.
Typhoon’s reader sunglasses are available in two styles. The large frame style of the Harbor II is a popular choice as a men’s polarized reader. Men with large heads that have a tough time finding sunglasses. They need a sunglass that fits comfortably without squeezing their skull. These guys often breathe a deep sigh of relief when they try on the Harbor II. The Mariner II is beloved by those that prefer a semi-rimless sunglass style. Mariner II has wide lenses that provide a peripheral sun shield. Both of these sunglasses are available in a variety of lens tints such as horizon grey, sunset brown and meridian blue.
All Typhoon sunglasses are backed by our limited lifetime warranty. Free shipping available on all orders.
