Guideline Cabo Sunglasses

Like I said in my review of Guideline “Eclipse” sunglasses, I had the opportunity to give a couple of pairs of Guideline Sunglasses a try for the last several months. Glasses like these are important to the kayak fisherman because they fill a spot between the ultra cheap glasses that can damage your eyes and the super expensive ones that require a 2nd mortgage. I am rough enough on glasses that I can’t see spending 3 figures on them but also my aging eyes have started telling on me for wearing cheap glasses with low optical quality.

The Guideline “Cabo” was the second set of sunglasses that I got to put to the test. These were definitely more to my “style” and I was more than happy to try them out. The frames were matte black and very lightweight. They are designed for medium to large heads but these were as tight as I would care to wear for long periods of time. No discomfort was caused by them, but I could feel the grip on my temples and from the matte finish. There was enough grip to them that I did deep water reentry practice without fear of losing them while I flipped my kayak.

The lenses on the Cabos were “Spring Hill Copper” and were a good color for overcast days although I wear some variation of amber for almost all of my fishing so it was an easy choice. The copper color is outstanding for sight fishing and it has proven itself to me in fresh or salt water. I liked the semi-rimless framed style, it made for very easy cleaning as well. The lenses were clear and without distortion all the way to the edge. The optical quality was fine and the polarization was as strong as any glasses I have worn. I could plainly see rocks and stumps as I was flipping my jigs in the river.

I have worn these Guideline Cabos on adventures in 4 different states and they have performed well every time. The super lightweight frames were great for daylight to dark trips. I was very impressed with these and for the price I consider them a good value. When either I or a member of my crew is am in need of a new pair of shades I will for sure give Guideline another try. In fact my son has his eye on the Guideline gunmetal “Mantis” with Freestone brown lenses!
