The Fitzroy model is made from 100% recycled fishing nets intercepted from the ocean, and paired with polarised mineral-glass lenses, offering complete recyclability and ultimate UVA/UVB 400 protection. The square frame suits both male and female medium to large faces.
The Italian made Fitzroy frames contain 0% virgin plastics, 100% recycled fishing nets that were collected from European waters through end-of-life amnesty schemes and beach and dive based ghost net recoveries. The frames feature five barrel hinges for maximum durability. The frames are covered by Waterhaul ‘Recycle and Replace’ lifetime guarantee – damaged frames components can go back into the plastic recycling loop to create new pairs. Frames come in a dark grey matte, and being 100% recycled, each pair has unique, subtle flecked patterns which allude to their origin.
Waterhaul pair their Fitzroy frames with two polarised lens material options;
– Mineral Glass Waterhaul x Barberini signature lenses – this lens material is the clearest lens-medium through which we can observe the world – no other lens material matches its optical clarity. Glass also offers superior scratch-resistance compared all other lens types – perfect for a lifestyle that involves sand and saltwater. The lenses are Italian produced to the highest quality standards, offering full spectrum UV400 protection. Glass is a natural material that can be infinitely recycled in any glass-recycling collection.
– Bio-based Lightweight Sport Designed for high-intensity activity, their cellulose-based plastic polarised lenses offer a performance balance option with 75% reduced lens weight and superior impact resistance. The lenses feature anti-reflection inner coatings and full UV400 protection.
All of the lenses are fully polarised, eliminating glare from reflective surfaces of water, snow and wet roads.
The product and packaging supply chain is free from single-use plastic – Waterhaul have audited the full length of their supply chain and you’ll receive your new pair in hassle and harm free recycled wood-pulp packaging.
Each pair includes a free magnetic fold-flat hard case made from sustainable cork.
