These are the sunglasses worn by U.S. Army AH-64 Apache Helicopter pilots. Made by a supplier to the U.S. military for more than 30 years, the sunglasses feature the iconic aviator shape and a non-corroding nickel silver frame. The scratch- and impact-resistant lenses are made from the same distortion-free mineral glass used on watch faces, and their grey tint provides the truest perception of colors, ideal for reading maps and identifying landmarks. The non-polarized surface, recommended for helicopter and airplane pilots, is essential for deciphering dashboard instruments, which are often outfitted with antiglare filters. The glasses also block 98% of harmful UV rays. Silicone nose pads prevent slipping, and the temple tips are encased in clear plastic to provide comfort from takeoff to landing. With semi-rigid case, microfiber cloth, and maintenance kit. 5 1/2" L x 5 1/2" W x 1 3/4" D. (8 oz.)

A picture that is not what I bought
By john ex military
I really like the theory of the lenses.My only problem is the size of the lenses. To me, the picture doesn't look like what I received. I bought a similar pair when I was in the military and the lenses were a lot smaller with the same nose support and same ear arms. I really don't like big lenses however, I like what they do for my eyes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
By GTR Man
from Ontario, Canada
These are very decent sunglasses. They're light and comfortable. There is ZERO lens distortion and they offer style and class to anyone who wears them.Generously supplied are a mini screwdriver kit, spare screws and nose pads, a quality leather re-enforced case, and a nice polishing cloth. I could not be happier.

My husband is a private pilot and I got them for him for his birthday. He said they were very comfortable and actually made everything appear clearer. He's going to keep them in the case in his plane and use them whenever he flies which is weekly! He loves them.

I bought these for my husband for an early father's day gift. He wore them and said they felt great on, very lightweight. They seem to be very high quality.
Not exactly what I expect but excellent quality
By Sunnyside Gardner
from Sunnyside Gardens, NY
Although the sunglasses were excellent quality I found that they lenses were a little small for his face and did not look great. I purchased them as a gift and the recipient liked them very much so i did not return the glasses.
