For combat pilots there
are moments when distance and depth-of-field judgments, undistorted color-value
relationships, UV (a & b) and infrared filtration, glare and haze
suppression, and other factors, can be a matter of life and death.
Rodeo Drive in your $250 “designer” sunglasses, these factors are not, perhaps,
a matter of life and death.
Good thing they're not.
Disturbing instances of expensive, supposedly reputable sunglasses failing to
adequately filter harmful UV radiation are not rare; nor the converse; $5
sunglasses that test far better than the $250 kind. The problem is, how do you
know which is which?
You don't. That's what we like about these: they were
developed by American Optical to meet the exacting specifications of the U.S.
Air Force (MIL-S-25948J). They don't cost $250, or $175.They cost $98.
Buy them at the Fort Knox PX or from us. Either way, you can stop worrying.
You've got the best.
