RCI OPTICS SUNGLASSES: Mosquito Lagoon Model Review

By: Alan Ryland, Pro Staff RCI Optics


O ne of the most valuable tools for the waterperson is a quality pair of polarized sunglasses. The folks at RCI Optics have utilized some of the most advanced materials and lens technology available. From the Italian made Leviathan Series Ballista 2.0 frame material, HELIUS 2.2 RCT high impact lenses, 100% UV A-B-and C polarization, Xiphos 4.0 lens treatments, Mil standard 662 ballistic approved, ANSI Z-87.1 approved, and multi-layer anti reflective coatings RCI has covered every aspect of clarity, polarization and safety.

I’ve had the pleasure of using a pair of the Mosquito Lagoons for over a year now and they have performed flawlessly! A majority of my fishing involves slow poling over the flats in search of redfish and trout laid up in potholes or broken grass. My RCIs have given me a far better advantage for spotting fish in these type of situations than any other shades I have used. The polarization and clarity of the lenses, in my opinion, is unsurpassed!

Bottom line, I see more fish on the flats! Even for offshore use, lakes, streams, rivers, or just a day out in the sun, RCI Optics sunglasses are outstanding! You can check them out on their website at rcioptics.com or visit an RCI dealer and check out a pair for yourself to see why “the advantage is clear” with RCI Optics.
