Featuring an Ultra Violet filter to reduce haze and improve sharpness and a Circular Polarizer to cut out reflected light for better contrast and colour balance.
UV – protection and anti-haze
Protect your lenses from scratches, fingerprints, dust, and grime. And cut out UV haze for sharper photos. Made for entry-level lenses.
CPL – cut reflected light
Cut out 99.9% of polarized light for better contrast and colour balance. Adjust the level of polarization by rotating the rim. Made for entry-level lenses.
Our conscious design minimises weight and maximises creative options and saves space in your bag while providing robust protection for your lens filters. Kit comes with lens caps, cleaning cloth, a reusable low-impact Kraft paper tube and a cotton bag.
The 90-degree rule
For maximum results with your CPL, the sun should be at 90-degrees to your lens. To check, make an L with your hand, point your thumb at the sun and your index finger is the max polarization angle.
Not for telephoto lenses
This range is made for entry-level lenses but is not recommended for use with lenses longer than 100mm. For best results with telephoto lenses, we suggest our 3Peak range.
Reuse or recycle
Our consciously designed packaging is made to be reused, upcycled or recycled.

I'll admit it was the attractive packaging that enticed me to purchase, but the quality is phenomenal. I've been doing photography for 20 years and the quality of this filter surpasses those at twice the price. Will be buying filters from this brand in the future.
Thought this was two separate filters. Turns out there are two, but you cannot separate them. I also thought it was silly that they "plant 5 trees for you", yet the cardboard can they come in was filled with like 10 cardboard discs to take up space. Just seems ironic and made me lol. I'll find another use for the can as it comes with a nice cotton carry bag, and the can just looks too nice to throw away. That being said quality of the filters appears to be great. Super clean, no visible distortion in photos. Love the aluminum covers. Does what they are supposed to do for a reasonable price.
I've owned quite a few circular polarizer filters from various brands, tiffen, hoya, b&w and a marumi exus, this last one was a beast but sadly i accidentally droped it in a river and lost it, i needed another but i didn't wanted to spend the 140 bucks it is retailing right now so i decided to give Gobe a chance, i wasn't disapointed at all, it performs just as well as the marumi for a fraction of the price an it includes a uv filter. I' m quite happy with this purchase, if you're looking for a circular polarizer on a budget the Gobe CPL is a no brainer.
I’m very impressed with the entire product line. Basically all high quality product, no complaints as to their coating or glass. The price seems reasonable and they impress me with their mission to gree up the planet. I have many lenses, I will be buying their filters instead the expensive Fuji brand I was getting.
This has been a great filter set for my waterproof Olympus camera. I keep the UV filter on for protection and use the CPL as needed. Gobe has a good system with the front and back cover for filters not being used. I've only played around a little with the CPL and it appears to do a good job of polarizing and removing glare. The clear UV filter does a great job and does not seem to distort photos.
July 3 2018 The packaging and nice metal covers that protect the UV and CPL are great and innovative. I purchased the 86mm set to go on my high end Pentax DFA 150-450. and at the 150 -250 area the CPL was fine and my images were good. However, as I took the zoom all the way to 450 on the CPL I realized that it had subtle but noticeable to me optical distortion. The UV was better and I could not detect optical distortion at 450 with the UV . I do not know having not tried another 86mm CPL on this lens if that is a compatibility or quality issue. I think Gobe approach to selling filters in innovative and as that price was quite reasonable I wanted to try. I am not going to return enjoyed the fact they planted 5 trees for my purchase. I will get another 86 CPL and then do a comparison.
I've bought a couple of sets of these for different lenses. I notice a slight clarity difference compared to no filter, but not enough to not keep them on all the time. I love how they screw together, so I don't have a bunch of filters rattling around in my camera bag. I assume more expensive filters look better, but I haven't tried any of those.
Like: Everything. Quality of the materials is superb, especially for the price; the way that they all attach together for easier storage if necessary is nice; the threads are deep enough and sharp enough to grab quickly and easily, and you don’t have to “torque” on the filters to make sure they stay on your lens; like I said. Everything.
Recently purchased my Nikon 200 - 500mm lens for my Antarctic trip. Needed a UV filter to protect my lens and I do use CPL filter often in the polar regions. I looked through a few reviews and decided to go with Gobe.
