  • Made from custom cellulose acetate and stainless steel

  • Akulon-coated screws for durability

  • Cut from a single sheet of acetate to maintain color parity

  • Premium polarized lenses are made with CR-39 for maximum clarity and color; prescription sunglasses are made with polarized polycarbonate lenses, the most impact-resistant prescription lens material on the market

  • Lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays

  • Anti-scratch coating included
