The Story of the Drake

When we designed The Drake, we wanted to create a great piece of gear that would be perfect for life on the water. Growing up in Michigan, being on the water was always just a part of the culture. Our beautiful peninsulas boast over 11,000 lakes, 16 major river systems, and 20,000 miles of cold, quality trout waters making our home a fly fishing, boating, and water-sports mecca. If you don’t fish, own a boat, or spend your summer weekends "Up North", you undoubtedly know someone who does. That’s why making a floatable pair of polarized sunglasses was a no brainer for us. 

The Drake is carved from natural bamboo which makes it both strong and ultra-lightweight. In fact, they are so light they float on the water so you won’t have to worry about losing your sunglasses in the river, the lake, or the bottom of the ocean. Their sport wrap shape combined with polarized lenses maximizes your field of vision while cutting through glare on the water so you can see clearer and deeper. 

Every river, every catch, and every excursion is unique. Now, so are your sunglasses. The Drake by DARMATI.

THEY FLOAT! Never lose your sunglasses to the bottom of the ocean or lake again with our premium floatable frames. Why would you ever be on the water without a pair of sunglasses that float? Next time you're on the water, make sure you have a pair that floats! 

Designed For The Most Comfortable Fit: We pay close attention to quality, comfort, and fit when we design our eyewear to ensure we are making the best possible frame. A lightweight frame is key to a comfortable fit. Our frames are so light and comfortable you might just forget you are wearing them. Additionally, each pair of sunglasses is built with quality flex-hinges to easily adjust to your face for the best fit possible.

Polarized Lenses That Are Perfect For Driving And Life On The Water: Polarized lenses are a hallmark of the best high-quality, functional sunglasses. Polarization cuts through annoying and dangerous sun glare so you can see clearly. If you wear sunglasses while driving, you need polarized lenses to cut through dangerous blinding glare reflecting off other cars. For fishing and boating, you need polarization to cut through the glare reflecting off the water which allows you to see clearer and see deeper so you can make your next big catch!

Protect Your Eyes: If your current lenses don’t offer UV400 protection, you need new sunglasses. UV400 lenses protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, which is why they come standard in our frames.
