Not quite the full Magoo

I've been trying to find some half decent polarised sunglasses for fishing, I've been through so many now. They usually break prematurely, I lose them or they don't quite fully isolate my eyes which hinders performance, my last pair my son Sam brought to me in three pieces so the hunt was on for some replacements.

I happened to catch 'Thinking Tackle' on Sky and Adam Penning was stalking carp and he was wearing what looked like small welding goggles, goggles that wouldn't look out of place on Mr Magoo. They were 'cocoons' and are meant to be worn over prescription sunglasses. After reading plenty of reviews and trying some on at the CLA game fair I bought a pair, and so far so good.

I don't wear glasses but that doesn't matter as they really do isolate or 'cocoon' your eyes from glare. The lenses look fantastic quality and the do seem to be more robust than others I've tried.

No quite the full Mr Magoo as these are the mini / slim version but looking forward to using them in anger, proof is in the pudding and all that. 40 quid from Hartley Fly
