Handmade in a small town in the Italian Alps exclusively for Sporty’s, these high-quality sunglasses are loaded with pilot-friendly features. Lightweight yet durable metal design is perfect for those long cross country flights. The non-polarized lenses are ideal for viewing iPads or smartphones, and won’t cause instruments to fade at certain viewing angles. The iconic aviator style provides ultimate coverage and sun protection.
Classic aviator style
Made famous by Hollywood, the classic aviator sunglasses style is as iconic as American pie, baseball, and country fried chicken. The teardrop shape provides a superior coverage area and allows you to accurately view the entire cockpit through the lens.
Flight deck friendly lens
The flight deck friendly lens sharpens your view while eliminating glare. These ultra-high-definition lenses have a green tint to minimize blue light interference. A non-polarized finish makes this lens ideal for viewing phones, iPads, tablets, GPS units or other polarized surfaces typically found in a cockpit.
The most abused part of your sunglasses is the hinge. Flight Gear sunglasses feature a customed tapered hinge that provides the maximum amount of durability where you need it most. The temple tapers down to a smaller form to not interfere with your headset ear seals.
These unique hinges provide a custom fit. Most sunglasses will open to a predetermined point. If your head is wider than that point, your head will feel increased side pressure. The spring hinges on these Flight Gear sunglasses allow the temples to go further than the width of the sunglasses, reducing the amount of side pressure. They're both more comfortable and more durable.
Lightweight, high strength frames
The frames are made from high-quality Italian metals that offer a premium feel without the additional weight typical in other metal frames. We have put them through tests and have been pleasantly surprised by the extreme strength they display. These frames will easily put up with the day to day abuse or being thrown in a flight bag until you’re ready to fly.
Includes crush-proof case and microfiber cleaning cloth. Lens measures 58mm across.
