Dawn breaks, the hatch is in, and the rivers and streams of the high-country beckon. A true outdoor companion, Caddis lives for long days on the water and in the field, and this polarized sunglass is an essential part of your fly fishing gear. With its full wrap, triple-injection frame, Caddis offers complete protection from the sun’s harsh rays, and our Ellume Polarized lens cuts through the water to let you hone in on the biggest fish, all in a style that goes as easily from your favorite eddy to your top watering hole, for swapping stories about the ones that didn’t get away.
With its plant-based Ellume Polarized sunglass lenses and plant-based Z-Resin frame, Caddis reduces the environmental footprint of your sunglasses on the rivers, lakes and outdoor spaces you love, all while providing unrivaled comfort, color, clarity and contrast. Ellume Polarized blocks 100% of UVA/B & C light and battles glare with its 99.9% polarized efficiency, and Ellume Polarized’s proprietary color filtration pops colors, creating the ultimate fish-finding companion. Zeal Optics’ sunglass lenses also feature a resilient hard coat to keep them scratch free, while Caddis’s triple injection frame creates unique color combos that make Caddis look as good as it performs.
We build sunglasses using the most premium polarized film in the world. Sourced in Japan and layered in an injected lens stack, this is truly the best lens available today. Polarization plays a huge role in keeping your eyes comfortable by reducing glare reflected off objects around you. Your eyes are freer to work the way they're supposed to, and you ‘all be kicking back in comfort come the end of the day.
Ellume Bio-Plastic Lens
Ellume Polarized is the world's first lens made using a plant-based bonding agent, thus replacing the petroleum-based bonder. With no compromise in the optical clarity or impact resistance, this lens is proof that environmental initiatives are not a deterrent to an incredible optical experience. Ellume lenses don't skimp on protection or prevention; you can rest assured that you will still be protected from UVA, B, and C as well as HEV light.
This unique material is strategically injected into each frame to provide a soft and comfortable hold. With incredible performance characteristics this rubber can withstand extreme cold and hot temperatures ensuring that your sunglasses stay in place no matter what.
Z-Resin Bio Plastic Frame
All of our frames are made from Z-Resin, our proprietary plant-based material from Switzerland. Instead of crude oil, our frames are made from the natural oils in the castor bean. In fact, it's a perfect resource because it's an efficient, fast-growing perennial that withstands drought and thrives on marginal lands.
Our custom Digital Rx Lab ensures that you are getting the highest quality Rx lenses available. Our zero-waste facility is an integral part of our GROUNDED mission that defines us as a leader within the optical industry. We believe you shouldn't have to sacrifice quality to be environmentally responsible and our custom lab is one innovative step in showing the industry just how that can be done.
