  The old Zebco flip up fishing shades
  Posted by: ezwater on Jun-11-13 11:18 PM (EST)
 

were, for me, the start of a successful non-prescription eyewear for paddling. I only wish I could have had them in a sturdier form. Their polarized lenses were great when reading rapids going int the sun. If I flipped and had to roll, the lens panel would pivot up rather than pulling them off my head. I did have to install a "keeper" thing at the lens panel hinge.

When I started needing correction for presbyopia (a late affliction of ordained Presbyterian elders) I wished there were a way to put corrected lenses in the Zebco frame. But there was enough room to wear prescription lenses underneath.

I gotta see if those Zebcos are still around....
