Kids floating sunglasses
Barz New Cabo Floating Model. Floatation is achieved with enclosed air cells in the arms and nose piece.
On show this year in his centrally located stand on Masthead Way were two new models: the Cabo floating model in three lens configurations, polarised, photochromic and bi-focal - which is exclusive to Barz Optics - plus a lower profile version of this model to suit the Asian market; and the kids' range of floating, polarised and photochromic sunglasses, which are ideal for young sailors, surfers and kids who love the water.
Now exporting to 27 countries, Barz Optics uses every boat show as the opportunity to meet potential distributors in each region and this year's Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show was ideal for making contacts with visitors from around the world.
