M1030: LARGEST OF AVIATORS - SEE BELOW FOR LENS MEASUREMENT

Gold frame is a subtle light gold color.

CHROME SILVER & DARK CHROME (GUN METAL) FRAMES DISCONTINUED BY MANUFACTURER

MODEL: M2080 DARK CHROME or BLACK may be of interest: Please link at the bottom of this page.

This package consists of our best selling M1030M Flash Mirrored Aviators and a black case. Our M1030 fits medium and large head sizes comfortably. If you prefer a smaller frame for small to medium head sizes, you will find the models M6256, 6257PM, M711 and M8001 listed at the bottom of this page.

Let's start with our case, which is padded in a black durable leather-like material with rigid internal support for a full protection. This is the traditional military aviator case style that we have seen selling for as much as $10 to $15 alone.

Our M1030 flash mirrored aviators are our number one selling sunglasses by a very wide margin. The aviator look is coming back in style again. And why shouldn't it? They look good on virtually any facial structure. It's not like buying wrap-around sunglasses where some look good and others don't. Aviators simply look good on everyone. That's why they have never completely gone away in almost 70 years.

And don't think you're going to get some kind of second rate quality sunglass at this price. Our hand polished frames give a sharp high-end finished look and the flash mirroring is silver-oxide for a subtle mirroring effect outdoors. Mirroring helps reflect glare to keep your eyes from tiring in bright sunlight. That's why mirroring is still used today on NASA lenses for astronauts. And, our lenses provide full UV400 ultra-violet ray protection. Our frames are optical quality, designed specifically for polycarbonate lenses. Our hinge connections are screwed in place as opposed to stamped or riveted for a long life of trouble-free wear.

Flash mirror, is a lighter coating of mirroring, meaning they are not a full 100% reflective finish like a mirror. When outdoors the mirror finish is obvious, but subdued. Filtration benefits are identical as the full mirrored.

Due to studio lighting during photo shoot, the reflective mirror of lenses is not as apparent when viewed indoors. However, when outdoors, the mirror effect is noticeable on the sunglasses.

The underlying tint is a dark neutral slate gray that allows less than 20% light transmission which is the recommended level for private, military and commercial pilots. And, it will not distort colors. If you're looking for darker tint sunglasses and have not been satisfied with gray lenses in the past, you'll love these lenses.

The quality of our lenses is where we separate the dime store junk from our M1030 sunglasses. That's why we call them military grade. Our lenses are produced from 2.1 mm shatter-resistant polycarbonate, the same material and thickness used on most of our ballistic combat goggles, so you can be certain you're getting maximum protection. These are not the thin flimsy .75 mm to 1.0 mm lenses like cheaper models at your local gas station. They tend to pop out of the frame when you sneeze. Those products are a dime a dozen. Over time the flexing of the lenses causes the frame to distort and suddenly, for no apparent reason, the lens falls out. That won't happen with our M1030. In fact, if you try to pop the lens out of the frame, you'll have a lot problems doing it, and by the time you do, the frame will most likely be destroyed. Our lens to frame fit is precise and designed to remain firmly in place.

No, they are not heavy like tempered glass sunglasses, nor are they clunky. They are lightweight and the wire formed temple arms match original military issue designs. You'll find you can wear these sunglasses all day without the dreaded nose pad pain digging into the bridge of your nose that glass lens designs are so known for.

Like we said, this is our number one selling aviator model and we can count on one hand the number of returns because customers didn't like them. And of those who did, the reason for their return ranges from the 'lenses are too small' to 'the lenses are too big'. Based on that feedback from a handful of customers, we think we got the lens size just right on this model. Each lens runs top to bottom at about 2 1/8" high, and from left to right at the widest point about 2 1/2" wide. These are 63mm lenses. This is the traditional size of pilot aviators over the last 65 years and closely match the original military issue aviator design. Our M1030 will fit medium and large sizes perfectly.

If you you've had your fill of wrap-around sunglasses or you feel you just plain look goofy wearing them, you can now wear glasses with style. So get the best price on a quality traditional aviator that says America like no other sunglass design in the world. And, you'll save $100 or more over pricey name-brand products and not give up anything. Our customers tell us that routinely. The most common comments are 'these are better than you describe' or 'they are everything you said they would be.' In other words, our customers like our M1030 series aviators.

Shipping is FREE to U.S. and APO/FPO addresses. There are no handling or credit card fees. No surprises ever! The price you see is the price delivered to your door.

WARNING: DESPITE THE QUALITY OF THE LENSES IN OUR M1030 SERIES AVIATORS, WE DO NOT RECOMMEND, NOR DO WE CONDONE, THE USE OF THIS ITEM AS A REPLACEMENT FOR COMBAT GRADE PROTECTIVE GOGGLES OR SUNGLASSES IN URBAN WARFARE WHERE EXPLOSIVE DEVICES ARE PREVALENT. THE M1030 SERIES AVIATOR DOES NOT PROVIDE REQUIRED WRAP-AROUND PERIPHERAL (SIDE) PROTECTION AS DOES TACTICAL EYE WEAR, NOR DO THEY PROTECT EYES FROM BLOWING DUST OR SAND TYPICAL OF MIDDLE EAST OPERATIONS.
