These are the Burner Half Frame Tactical glasses. They feature a rugged and bold style when it comes to design and looks. There are three interchangeable lenses in this kit: Smoked lenses (block 100% of UVA/UVB light), Orange lenses (block distractions without dimming), and clear lenses for max ballistic protection. The T-Shell coating is scratch, crack and crazy resistant. You'll love these glasses!

Climb Polarized Eyewear

The Climb Polarized Glasses are a polarized smokey lens that allows light transmission of 11%. The frames are a nice glossy black, with the TR-90 nylon frames that give excellent peripheral vision. The special lens technology adds 99.9% polarization to reduce the glare off water and other reflective surfaces. These are comfortable and great to wear. Read more details about them on our website.

The Ascend's are a plain smoke lens pair of sunglasses that allows light transmission of 15%. They feature the sleek gloss black Grilamid frame that gives great peripheral vision. These glasses include the zippered compression-molded protective case, a cleaning bag and neck strap. This partnership with Wiley X performance Eyewear means top quality by two great brands collaborating to make something awesome.

The Aileron Shield 3 Lens kit prides itself on combining adaptability, durability, strength and style in one package. In this popular kit it includes three sets of polycarbonate high impact rated lenses that can be mounted or removed from the frames. The lenses are even prescription ready! They have 3 distinct tints that are suitable for a wide range of environments--Clear, Smoke and Ballistic Orange. There is a few week wait for these, but don't be alarmed--they're worth it.
