Bajio in the frame for coming season

Bajio, maker of blue-light filtering, sustainable performance sunglasses

built to save the world’s saltwater flats and estuaries, has released its frames for 2022.

Sunglasses are the heart of US-based Bajío, providing customers with lightweight, bio-based nylon frames featuring proprietary LAPIS lens technology.

The fashionable, fishable, six-base unisex frames are packed with performance features including interior sun ledges designed to block peripheral light, ergo-textured no-slip rubber nose pads and temples to stay in place, and multi-barrel and internal flex hinges–all available in various temple and frame sizes to fit every face shape comfortably.

The line includes five frame styles made from plants, so not only are they gentle on the planet but they’re also stronger and lighter than plastic frames.

There are also 13 lens options – seven colours made from lightweight polycarbonate and six made from glass. Both offer durable

anti-scratch properties and oleophobic coatings making sunscreen and water easy to remove.

Bajio founder Al Perkinson said: “We’re really stoked about the new frames our design crew has created this year! We think of these styles as sort of ‘reverse mullet’ – party in the front and business in the back. “They have a moderate wrap, which allows us to
give them more style in the front while also having built-in sun
protection in the back. We’re calling this new feature our Sun Ledge.

“Our younger, more fashion-forward anglers will enjoy that they not only look cool but they also have the performance elements needed for handling long days on the water.”

The five styles are named Caballo, Chelem, Cometa, Paila and Paraiso.
