The Scottie Hampton Yachtsea Sunglasses

19 Mar

I have been quite fortunate to have spent the last couple of weeks viewing the world from behind the harlequin lenses of a finely crafted pair of sunglasses. Scottie Hampton, with a split base of operation (East Hampton and Palm Beach), is a new arrival to the sunglasses and clothing scene. One that I anticipate should be very well received. Having spent many summers sailing off the coast of Newport and Nantucket, the creative minds behind Scottie Hampton knew exactly what they wanted and needed in a pair of sunglasses. Scottie Hampton set out to make the “best looking and lightest weight yachting sunglasses that consumers had ever seen,” and I think they nailed it! Regarding the design and technology of the Yachtsea models, Scottie Hampton wanted its sunglasses to be light weight and durable, visually stunning, and better looking than their competitors, all without sacrificing any integrity in their lenses.

The amount of detail that has gone into each pair of these sunglasses is astonishing! Technically, the sunglasses are composed of scratch-resistant Grilimid Nylon frames with laser sculpted Tri-Coated polarized Revo lenses.Scottie Hampton’s lenses use the latest and most innovative technology and come in four different shades/colors: Harlequin, Sky Blue, Smoke, and Red Eye. I have had the great opportunity of using models that have the harlequin (rose-tinted) lenses and sky blue lenses. All of their lenses incorporate anti-reflective coatings and highly effective polarization which are specifically designed to eliminate glare, allow superior visual clarity, definition, and color transmission.  The pair with the harlequin lenses have quickly replaced my Ray-Bans as my go to pair of sunglasses. The greens are greener, blues are bluer, and it honestly seems that all colors are intensified and more vivid when wearing them.  A little online research will result in the scientifically proven fact that rose tint in lenses is excellent for low light conditions and fast action activities because it sharpens contrast and image resolution. Essentially, if you live an active lifestyle, these are the perfect sunglasses from sunrise to sunset!

Scottie Hampton sunglasses do not only look incredible, they are fabulously comfortable and provide complete protection from the elements as well.  Rest assured that each and every pair has been precisely crafted to deliver all day comfort whether you are flying, boating, driving, skiing, or watching horse racing! Spring is right around the corner and there is no better time than right now to make a small investment in some quality eye-wear! Get a pair of Yachtseas at Scottie Hampton’s website ->
