M8001 Extreme Quality Chrome Mirror Aviator w/Clamshell Case and Pouch MAIN
No shipping or handling charges. No surprises! Just select "Free Shipping" during checkout and your order will be delivered in 2-4 days anywhere nationwide. Orders to military APO/FPO generally take 10-12 days.

Our Extreme Quality M8001 Aviator will exceed your requirements at a price that won't break the bank. Included with your purchase is a deluxe clamshell aviator case and microfiber carrying pouch that doubles as a cleaning cloth.

This model is a medium frame aviator that fits small to medium head sizes, and with its flexible temple arms it also fits larger head sizes comfortably. The frame is 5 1/2" from temple to temple. The lenses are about 2 1/4" across in Width x 2" Tall and are manufactured from 2.0 millimeter thick ballistic polycarbonate. 2.0 mm is as thick as some combat goggles so you know you'll be getting maximum eye protection. Additionally, because the lenses will not flex during normal use, the frame will remain rigid. Thin lenses tend to pop out of the frame as it ages and becomes distorted. That won't happen with this model. The lens to frame fit is tight and secure.

This is a traditional design with standard aviator wire temple arms (not cable) and clear traditional temple ends, which look sharp and crisp. The hinge/temple arms are optical quality, which means they are threaded with screws, not press fit together like cheaper sunglasses.

The mirrored lenses are a full silver-oxide mirror that provides additional sun filtration and frankly, darn good looks. Our lenses, as on all our aviators, provide full protection from damaging UVA/UVB ultraviolet rays.

The chrome finish is obviously very refined even under the clear temple ends, which on some sunglasses looks unfinished. The chrome plating on this model is thick and will not begin to wear off within a few weeks of wear. That's because the temple arms are clear-coated in a polymer that keeps metal from touching skin. If you tend to turn green when perspiration hits your frames, you won't have that problem with our M8001.

The lenses are standard aviator smoke/gray, with optical quality clarity with no hint of smokiness or distortion. They are a little darker than traditional sunglasses providing very good protection on bright sunny days. The nose pads are adjustable, soft and flexible. The temple arms won't interfere or feel obtrusive when used with headsets or helmets. These are the perfect sunglasses for flying, driving, boating or lying around at the beach or lake. They are so light, you will hardly notice them.

How good are they? Our owner will tell you: "As the owner of SDA, I have a choice of any pair of sunglasses in our inventory, including very expensive models that cost five times or more than our M8001 Aviator. My choice for daily wear is the M8001 aviator. And, despite my larger head size, I find them very comfortable for all day wear. The fit and finish is equal to or better than sunglasses costing well over $100. For me, they're perfect."

Our M8001 comes to you securely packaged in our double wall shipping container, with our deluxe clamshell case and micro-fiber storage pouch which doubles as a very effective cleaning cloth. It is very nicely packaged for gift-giving.

We think you will be very pleased with our M8001 and we guarantee your complete satisfaction or we will refund your purchase in full. Just make sure they are returned in the condition you received them.

One last thing, which has made us famous in the industry. We don't charge for shipping to any U.S. or APO/FPO address. We never have and never will. There's no catch, no minimum order and no secret handling fees added to your order. The price you see is the full delivered price to your door.

While you may have thought aviator sunglasses faded off into the sunset a quarter of a century ago, they are back in style in a big way. The reason is simple. They look good on just about everyone, male or female, and every head and facial structure. While you may have struggled with the wrap-around era of sunglasses trying to find the 'perfect' fit and look, you will be surprised how easy it is to look good in a pair of aviator sunglasses.

These are not over-sized aviators that make you look like bug eyes from space. We think when you put them on and take a look at them in the mirror, you'll agree these are the perfect size.

From of Atlanta, Georgia on .

I found these sunglasses to be absolutely wonderful! They are very durable and look great. I got so many compliments & comments on them! Also, they really do work very well at blocking out sunlight. Also, they were very scratch resistant. They have fallen off my head multiple times (I would put my head down w/ them on and they fell off because of gravity and the fact that they were a little loose).

My only small minor issues:
-adjusting the nose pieces is annoying when they get messed up/bent due to any possible issue (I accidentally got them bent by something heavy enough to bend them enough). However, the nose pieces kept them still on my face very well.
-eventually, the arms will probably get a little loose so you'll need a very small screwdriver to tighten them if you want. They'll stay on better if they stay almost as tight as when you get them.
But those are only extremely picky, easy to deal with issues.

Basically, take good care of these sunglasses. They'll serve you well!
I highly recommend, just buy the. They'll arrive quickly and at a great price!

Got these since i was so sick of the drug store aviators falling apart on me. These are very high quality aviators, you couldnt find a better pair of aviator sunglasses out there for the price. Not to mention SDA has the best customer service i have ever came in contact with. Had a few problems with my order and they responded very quickly and sorted stuff out so fast, no questions, no ornery customer service reps. If i could rate your company as a whole, i would give 5+ stars. Will definitely order from them again.

I didn't like the case it came with so much. But the glasses itself were great. Definitely a good buy.

Just got my sunglasses yesterday in the mail. Wow that was fast delivery. They are everything SDA said they would be. They are light weight yet sturdy. You can just feel the difference from other cheaper aviators i have owned. They are really good looking. I'm wearing these on the slopes next weekend. They are hot!!!

Positive Rating Positive Rating Positive Rating Positive Rating Positive Rating Best sunglass buy I've ever made
From of Phoenix, Arizona on .

I bought these well over a year ago. I'm still wearing them and they look as good as the day I bought them. No wear, the chrome doesn't flake off, no turning green and no scratches on the lenses. Nothing. I haven't owned the same pair of sunglasses for six months without them falling apart or self-destructing let alone over a year. Love these things. They're worth the money, even if they were twice the price. I'm buying another pair as a gift for my brother.

Positive Rating Positive Rating Positive Rating Positive Rating Positive Rating best pair of sunglasses I've ever owned
From of Simi, California on .

Definitely the best pair ofglasses I've ever owned, They've survived a soccer ball to the face and all the kids at my work. The soccer ball smacked me square in the face and it was going pretty fast and it barely bent the frame. didn't mess up the lenses or pop them out at all. any other pair of aviators could have shattered or at the least fallen apart The mirrored finish on the front has a spec that wore away but thats only because sand got in the case and scratched them but they are still wearable but cosmetically there is a 1 mm scratched on them. I am very satisfied and buying a couple back up pairs so i can have a pair to wear out, and a pair for work so I don't F up my nice pair. I love these sunglasses and recommend them to everybody that likes aviators.

Positive Rating Positive Rating Positive Rating Positive Rating Positive Rating These are a nice pair of sunglasses

These are a nice pair of sunglasses for the money. Finish and fit is perfect and seem durable but light. I really like the mirrored lenses and dark gray tint.
