Abaco

Made for Life


Abaco was founded with one relentless mission: to create high quality eyewear at affordable prices backed by a lifetime warranty. This mission started all the way back when Abaco was just a small shop in Jupiter, Florida, selling popular sunglass brands. As time went on, owner Greg Sarkin became frustrated and heart-broken at the stories customers would tell him about their customer experience: the high investment in their favorite pair, the lack of warranty support. Instead of just listening, he rolled up his sleeves and began to spend countless hours designing, engineering, and perfecting every pair. The end results was sunglasses he could truly be proud of, with a flawless design, great durability, and the perfect price point.

Since their launch, Abaco has exploded in popularity, largely due to one simple fact: they listen to their customers. Each time Abaco heard a complaint or compliment, they listened, improved, and reimagined. Since its founding, they have expanded to over 40 unique frames and 225 different styles, lenses, and variations. All of which have been based on what customers asked for. The results are easy to see: Abaco sunglasses are some of the best anywhere, with amazing designs, styles, and quality at a price you will love.

At OutandUSA.com, Abaco is a newer brand for us, but we have already heard amazing things about it. If youre in the market for a new pair, give Abaco a try.

 Questions & Tips

Q: How does Abaco Polarized manufacture high quality polarized sunglasses at such low prices and back them with a lifetime warranty?

Unlike many other sunglass companies, Abaco does not have a large marketing budget or multiple layers of national, regional, and local sales managers to employ.  Abaco is a privately owned company that lives by the golden rule of providing our customers with good quality products, excellent customer service, backed by a Lifetime Warranty.  In short, we invest in products and customer service and let our customers do the marketing for us.

Q: Are all Abaco Sunglasses Polarized?

Currently all Abaco Sunglasses are polarized. In 2016 we manufactured a small run of non polarized sunglasses for kids, but after hearing the feedback from our customers that they would like their kids to have matching polarized sunglasses we upgraded the kids collection to all polarized lenses as well.  We are currently receiving special requests from our customers that they would also like a non polarized option for special uses such as flying airplanes, so we are considering manufacturing non polarized lenses for special uses such as these. If we do we will update this FAQ page.

Q: What are the benefits of Polarized Sunglasses?

Sunglasses with Polarized Lenses offer extra protection from glare by blocking horizontal light from bouncing off surfaces such as water, snow, cars, and the road.  By blocking glare it allows your eyes to relax, making them more comfortable by reducing the amount that you have to squint to block the glaring reflections.

Q: Do all Abaco Sunglasses block UV Rays?

All Abaco Sunglasses include UV400 lenses which means that they block 99.9% of UVA, UVB, and UVC Rays.

Q: Do bamboo sunglasses really float in the water?

In the Abaco lineup the only sunglass that currently floats is the Castaway. This is because the entire frame (Front + Temples) are made of bamboo, as opposed to sunglasses like the Cruiser, Taylor, and Pitbull Sunglasses which have bamboo temples with a traditional polycarbonate front.
