What people say about Kaenon

Kaenon Burnet Family Featured 600x600 crop center

Kaenons consistently meet and exceed the needs of the sailor wearing then. Whether it’s protection against the sun or eye protection when something breaks Kaenons are the best eye wear around. Worth the money every day of the week.”

— Matt

“I’ve had every pair of fishing/boating/on water sunglasses and these lenses are of the best I’ve ever owned ranking only second to the blue lenses. The frames are constructed with integrity and fit my face perfect. They look great and stay in position effortlessly even with oily sunscreen.”

— Ryan

“I am somewhat of a sunglass fanatic. The Matte Black Glaciers are my favorite pair of Kaenons yet. The fit, the frame quality, the lens clarity, the style and especially the great price. My third pair of Kaenons and in my opinion the best sunglasses on the market. Highly recommend!”

— William

Each pair is a finely tuned instrument, purpose-built for a life lived outside.
