Regular sunglasses just don’t cut it for pilots. That’s why Cloudbase sunglasses had such a positive reaction from our product testing team. Cloudbase sunglasses feature Carl Zeiss lenses chosen specifically for pilots. These lenses are designed to provide high contrast, outstanding optical clarity, and excellent UV protection.

The benefits are immediately obvious: the world appears sharper, clouds appear crisper, and depth perception is enhanced. Pilots will appreciate the ability to see traffic earlier, the ability to see well through haze, and the outstanding depth perception. Drivers will appreciate the ability to read the road surface better, and the lenses’ eye-relaxing glare reduction properties. The lenses feature the latest technology to provide extremely high contrast, while preventing color distortion.

Cloudbase sunglasses lenses are constructed of CR39, which is unique in providing optical clarity, extreme lightweight, and natural UV protection. In compliance with FAA recommendations, our lenses are non-polarized, preventing LCD blackout, and enabling pilots to spot the sun glint off distant traffic. All lenses are approved for driving, and feature full UV protection.

Cloudbase frames are designed to be extremely lightweight, and feature thin flexible temples to comfortably fit within headset ear seals. The resin frames are constructed of TR90, a futuristic lightweight, flexible, and strong resin which is able to float on seawater, and conform to your face.

Why we don't sell polarized sunglasses
Many sunglasses today are polarized, meaning they use an optical filter to reduce glare. While this is fine for fishing or driving, it's a bad idea for pilots. That's because many cockpit instruments and glass panels have polarized faces, and polarized sunglasses will render these unreadable. In addition, the iPad screen will be blacked out in portrait orientation when wearing polarized sunglasses. Sporty's sells a wide variety of high quality sunglasses that do an excellent job of reducing glare--but without polarization.

Comfortable and high quality sunglasses
Light weight and very comfortable. I really like the color of the lenses as it makes objects more distinct which is helpful for picking up traffic etc. they seem to be made of high quality materials. I would recommend them for sure.

Excellent Sunglasses
These are good-quality glasses - but what else would one expect from Zeiss lenses? The lenses seem a bit darker than expected, but overall these appear to be a good choice for the money. Durability and reliability remain to be seen, since the glasses were received only a few hours ago, but I anticipate that both will be more than acceptable.
