Back in 1980, Cold Steel's first customers and fans were Military and Law Enforcement professionals - and what they valued most was their unwavering commitment to strength. With that strength in turn, came safety, and they have been at the forefront of research and development in this field ever since. From day one, Cold Steel products have been specially developed for warriors. So when they began to explore eyewear solutions, they went beyond sunglasses... and developed Battle Shades! From boardroom to battlefield, Battle Shades have been created for maximum comfort and security. These stylish high performance sunglasses are held to the same exacting standards as their industry leading knives. Their sleek, low profile and ergonomic frames are remarkably light and comfortable, with integrated soft temple tips and nose pads to aid retention, as well as to increase comfort on typical "hot spots" that occur from prolonged wear. Their tough, Mil-Spec high impact polycarbonate lenses not only offer 100% UV (A,B & C) protection, but also meet the Military Standard impact resistance rating**, offering superior coverage and protection in the field. For added safety and peace of mind, they're have added their innovative protective shields to selected models in their line-up. These fully removable shields give additional protection from the distraction (and potential injury) of wind-shear, air born dust, debris and glare, keeping you focused, alert and ready for action! Each of these supreme eyewear solutions comes complete with a soft microfiber pouch and a durable carry case. The case features a discreet internal pocket (for carrying a knife, micro-revolver or even just your money clip) and has integrated snap-fit loops so you can carry your Battle Shades on a belt, pack, vest or webbing. Available in a variety of styles, Battle Shades are both practical and tactical; perfect for Military, Law Enforcement, and First Respondents in Emergency Services. They are also an excellent choice for hunting and outdoor pursuits, shooting, and extreme sports, as well as for every day wear.
