Raptor in Matte Black with AGX Glass Lenses

GUARANTEED FOR LIFE

 

Ever heard of a sunglass company guaranteeing its frames for life? Well, we do. Our frames are built to such high specifications that we stand by each pair for as long as you own them.

SkyTec™ LENS TECHNOLOGY

The U.S. military demands the best. You should too.

 

Developed with military aviation in mind to safeguard a pilot’s most important asset—his vision.
Each lens is engineered to precise optical and durability standards, with 100% UVA/UVB protection.

WEATHERPROOF

Designed to withstand the damaging effects of weathering

SCRATCH RESISTANT

Scratch resistant coating for long lasting clarity and durability

DROP BALL TESTED

Tested for impact resistance by ¼-inch steel ball drop from three feet away

MADE IN AMERICA. COMMITTED TO AMERICAN JOBS

 

Throughout Randolph’s history, our family-owned New England factory has honored its commitment to American jobs and manufacturing—even as other sunglass companies began moving their operations offshore in the 1980s. We are proud to be the only remaining metal eyewear manufacturer in the USA.

HANDMADE AND DETAIL-DRIVEN

 

It takes craftsmen in our Randolph, Massachusetts factory over five weeks to build a single pair of Randolph glasses.
More than 200 steps go into making each and every frame—and most of the work is done by hand.

STAY-SNUG SCREWS


Our stainless steel screws have been specially-designed to have a flared tip that prevents them from coming out, ensuring a perfect fit for years of wear.

UNEQUALED STRENGTH


At Randolph, we even make our own solder flux (this is the machine that solders the glasses together). This, in combination with a 56% silver filler, provides unequaled joint strength and integrity.

SUPERIOR QUALITY


We scour the world for the best components, including metal alloys with tight molecular structure, to prevent rust and oxidation and satisfy our drive for superior quality.

COMFORT ENGINEERED


Nose pads self-adjust for fit and comfort, while smooth monoblock hinges mean no sharp corners to snag clothing. That’s a relief!

WHAT’S INCLUDED

All frames come with a case, microfiber cleaning cloth, maintenance tool kit (screw driver, extra nose pads, and screws) and Lifetime Warranty certificate.

Maintenance Tool Kit


Everything you need to maintain your glasses, including a sunglass-size screwdriver, screws, and extra nose pads

Protective Case


Leather pebble grain case with an inner pocket to hold your maintenance kit

Cleaning Cloth


Microfiber cloth to keep your glasses looking like new

  2. 5 out of 5 Raptor Review A+++

    The Raptor fit perfectly and is so light and comfortable you forget your wearing them. I bought them for motorcycle riding and they slip on with my full face helmet with ease. The wide lens provides added protection from corner sunlight yet the visibility to the sides is great. I highly recommend them for any application. I bought two and gave one to my riding buddy.

  3. 5 out of 5 Pure Quality

    Bought a pair of 52 mm aviators, which was too small. My face sports the raptors/ sporty models nicer, so I order the raptors. I just wanted to say how wonderfully please I am with my new raptor sunglasses. The fit is perfect! Wonderful customer service, wonderful sunglasses, wonderful company!

  6. 5 out of 5 Excellent

    Very good lenses. Lightweight overall. 'Was unsure about plastic lenses versus glass, but the light weight of these glasses makes them very comfortable to wear for long periods.

  11. 4 out of 5 Husband is pleased

    My husband had some of the Oakley Tightrope sunglasses that got lost on Black Friday. These are much lighter weight and look very similar. The glasses don't wrap around his face quite as well as the Oakley pair did so I took off one star, but he likes them still. Plus, Made in America counts for a whole bunch in our house!

    Husband is pleased

  12. 4 out of 5 Comfortable, Contemporary Aviators

    The raptors, I admit, are not the most fashionable aviators. They can't be narrow, like 1990s-style sport glasses (think Agent Smith in The Matrix). And they cannot be as tall as 1930s (classic) or 1980s-style Aviators (Intruders). The Raptors, in order to be newer, have to be in the middle ground between sleek and functional. They end up looking like 1990s shades that have been stretched to provider more coverage.

    Having said that, I came around to purchasing these after about 2 years of contemplation. I had to have better polarized glasses for driving. A pair of hipster sunglasses from Moscot was not cutting it. And looking at the market, I was not going to go for a pair of Maui Jim or Sarengeti drivings glasses like every other middle aged guy. I wanted to support my home region (I'm from Brockton, MA), and get a pair of glasses made in the USA. So they had to be from Randolph Engineering. And I'm glad I went with these. The protection and clarity are first rate. The spring hinges are among the vesy best I've seen. They are light, comfortable, and have a contemporary matte frame. No bling here. Just comfort, with a tactical edge. While these might not look great while wearing a suit, these are the specs to use on the road or in the air.
