Named after a memorable flat we encountered on our Odyssey expedition through the Yucatan near Campeche, Piedra elicits images of red and black mangroves, casting to big rolling tarpon on the incoming and sneaking up on snook with the outgoing. Designed with a medium 8-base wrap and lightweight yet durable bio-based nylon frame, Piedra can perform all day long without weighing you down. Piedra’s wide temples block sidelights and provide sun protection so you can focus on the fish in front of you. No-slip rubber nose pads and temple tips keep shades in place, even in the heat of the moment.

Named for Alejandro Vega Cruz, aka “Sandflea,” the grandfather of fly fishing on the Yucatan’s Isla Holbox, the large frame Vega can help you spot giant 200-pound tarpon rolling in by the hundreds all day without weighing you down thanks to the strong yet lightweight bio-based nylon frames. Offering a bold, squared, high coverage full wrap design with wide temples to block sidelight and protect eyes from the sun, Vega puts you in a veritable cocoon ready to laser focus on the task at hand. Made with tough, bio-based nylon, this modern oversized frame protects eyes with complete coverage and vented side shields, reducing glare off the water and overall light intrusion without fogging up.

A sized-down version of our popular Bales Beach shades, the medium frame Palometa features a wrap-around style with built-in side coverage for sun protection and light blocking.
