Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between the Hydro Infinity and HydroClean™ Plus lens coatings?

Our HydroClean™ Plus lenses provide an added protective coating on the front side of your lens – shedding water, resisting dirt, and battling against many other substances you may encounter. Our new Hydro Infinity lens coating uses our advanced HydroClean™ Plus coating on the front AND the back of the lenses, providing you with dual-sided protection within more extreme or adverse outdoor conditions.

Do Hobie Polarized Sunglasses protect against UV rays?

Always! Hobie Polarized Sunglasses protect against 100% harmful UVA, UVB and UVC rays.

What is a Polarized Lens?

When sunlight strikes certain surfaces (i.e. water, snow or ice), the bending of light that is reflected off “glare”. All Hobie Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks this intense reflection of light, allowing you to reduce eye strain and improve the clarity of your vision.

Are scratched lenses covered under the Warranty?

What’s the best way to clean my glasses?

We recommend using a lens cleaning solution or mild soapy water first, to make sure all heavy particles like sand or dirt are washed away. Then with a soft microfiber cloth (like the microfiber you receive with your Hobies), rub in a circular motion until all the spots are clear.

What are UV Rays?

A UV ray is ultraviolet light that is produced primarily by our sun, these rays are invisible and pose a major risk factor to your skin and eyes. Hobie Polarized sunglasses block 100% UVA, UVB & UVC and provide protection for your eyes against these rays from potentially damaging your eyes.
