U.S. Military-Spec Aviators Get Fresh New Look For Spring

SkyTec™ Polarized Cobalt Lenses Pair With Matte Black

RANDOLPH, MA. (April 14, 2020) – Randolph Engineering Inc., supplier of Aviator Sunglasses to the U.S. Military for the past 42 years, has just added a new look to its military-spec Aviator Collection. Striking SkyTec™ Polarized Cobalt Blue lenses, made from camera-quality glass, are paired with a durable Matte Black metal finish for an extraordinary color combination just in time for Spring. Shoppers can purchase the new Matte Black and Cobalt Aviator here on Randolph’s website and in select retailers worldwide.

“Our vision is to create eyewear that inspires our customers to never compromise, always strive for greatness, and experience the extraordinary,” says Peter Waszkiewicz, Randolph CEO. “These new Aviators truly bring our vision to life.” Each frame is made in the USA in a 200-step process, with SkyTec™ lens technology developed from military aviation and a frame finish quality usually reserved for fine jewelry pieces. As Spring approaches these new Aviators are excellent for seeing nature come to life; the Cobalt Blue iridescent mirror is applied to Randolph’s iconic glass AGX lens, a performance lens that selectively highlights the soothing green and yellow wavelengths found in nature and relaxes the human eye
