Gatorz: Performance Sunglasses for Active Lifestyles
You may not be a Navy SEAL, SWAT team member, or first responder (and if you are, thank you for your service), but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t protect your eyes with arguably the best performance sunglasses on the market.
Known for their durability, high velocity impact lenses, and superior optics, Gatorz Sunglasses are the top choice for US military elite special operations groups, law enforcement personnel, skydivers, racers, outdoorsmen, extreme sports enthusiasts, or anyone who wants and demands the best.
The Gatorz Story: 30 Years in the Making
Debuting in 1989, these made-in-America sunglass with their signature aluminum frames were designed for high-velocity sports enthusiasts, especially motorcyclist looking for eyewear that could withstand impacts at high speeds while remaining comfortable, secure, and stylish. The adjustable frames were designed to fit under a rider’s helmet easily, providing optimal protection from wind, dust, and debris.
Not long after Gatorz won over the motorcycle community, other thrill-seekers embraced the frames—namely skydivers who praised the sunglasses for their unparalleled protection and stability. Soon, US Navy SEALs and Elite Operators of the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) adopted Gatorz as their sunglasses of choice.
From there, the Gatorz brand continued to build its tried-and-true reputation among those who demanded and required the best—whether they were jumping out of a plane, patrolling the front lines, racing a motorcycle, or engaged in some other high-speed sport or activity.
Superior Technology = Superior Performance
Made from 7075 military grade aluminum, Gatorz frames are lightweight, durable, and adjustable. The company’s proprietary TruRay optics lens technology greatly enhances visual clarity, allowing users to experience crystal clear, glare free vision.
All Gatorz lenses are created from impact resistant polycarbonate and provide 100% UV Protection. For those requiring an additional level of protection, Gatorz’ Magnum Z and Wraptor Z sunglasses both meet and exceed ANSI Z 87+ requirements for US ballistic safety. In fact, all Gatorz ANSI-rated products can withstand impact from projectiles at speeds of up to 250 feet per second.
Each pair of Gatorz is hand crafted in the USA, comes with a lifetime warranty, and can be adjusted to fit the wearer’s face.
