The Best Sunglasses for Dad’s Personality

June 04, 2019

Every dad is different. There’s the Hawaiian shirt loving dad and the boating dad that keeps his nose white with sunscreen. There’s the dad that rocks his sandals with socks and the dad who brags about his secret fishing spot. But no matter what your dad is like, all outdoorsy dads share one thing in common: the love of practical and personal presents. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the best sunglasses for dad based on his personality.

The Best Sunglasses for Dad’s Personality - Rheos Gear

While it’s hard to top last year’s “World’s #1 Dad” coffee mug, we’re pretty confident our selection of floating, polarized and 100% UV blocking sunglasses will be his #1 Father’s Day Gift. Better yet? Seeing his kiddo follow in his footsteps. Use code RHEOSDAD to buy one, get a kid’s pair 50% off!   

The Sailor —  Coopers

Coopers - Rheos Gear

The Coopers are made for the dad that can’t help but jump on a boat to sail the seas. With this pair, there’s no taking the wind out of his sails. Every Rheos frame floats and features premium polarized lenses, which protects against glare when out on the water. Our newest frame, the Coopers offer a wide lens shape for optimal coverage when exposed to the elements. We recommend handing this set over to him at the same time you drop him off at a marina.

The Marathon Runner —  Bahias

Bahias - Rheos Gear

If there’s more miles on his running shoes than his car, your dad needs a sporty pair of sunglasses that can keep up. The Bahias are so lightweight, they’ll feel as light on his face as he is on his feet. Embedded nose pads grip against sweat and keep the shades firmly in place, while anti-fog lenses make sure his vision is clear even while his body heats up. With a gift this good, he’ll spend every morning lap or lunchtime jog thankful for his favorite kid. 

The Hang Ten Surfer —  Anhingas

Anhingas - Rheos Gear

For the dad that’s always “hanging loose,” there’s the Anhingas. Designed with a thick frame to sit comfortably and securely on his face, he can catch wave after wave without worry. And, like all our sunglasses, these float if he takes a nosedive (literally). 

The Fly Fisherman —  Eddies

Eddies - Rheos Gear

Maybe he won’t give up his love of socks and sandals, but you can at least help him look a little more fashionable when he’s out on the lake. The Eddies are designed for the dad who takes solace in a long fishing trip. The lightweight design means these sit comfortably on his face and won’t slide down as he leans over to hook more bait on his line. Plus, the wraparound frame style offer added protection against sun and glare while he’s on the water.

The Trendy Traveler   Wyecreeks

Wyecreeks - Rheos Gear

Even though your dad may not have a super hip sense of humor, he still has a hip (or hipster) sense of style. The Wyecreeks vintage round sunglasses silhouette combine style with durability and functionality. All of our shades are scratch and impact resistant, so he can travel knowing this pair will keep up whether he’s out around town or seeing the world. 

The Paddler — Waders

Waders - Rheos Gear

From kayaks to stand up paddle boards, the Waders are perfect for the dad who always has a paddle in hand. If your dad has a roof rack on his car for his board or boat, you’ll want to pick up a pair that can handle hours out in the sun. With UV blocking and anti-glare lenses, these classic wayfarer floating sunglasses will quickly become his new favorite pair.


Don’t forget Dad’s little mini-me!

Sometimes, the greatest gift for dad is to see how his mini-me looks up to him. If your kiddo is a chip off the old block, grab a matching pair of kids floating sunglasses for 50% off when you purchase a pair for dad. Use code RHEOSDAD at checkout.

Here’s a quick test to see if floating sunglasses are right for your dad:

Ask him, “Why don’t crabs give to charity?” If his answer is “Because they’re shellfish,” you’ve found the right pair.
