Prospect Sunglasses

Regular price $74.99
/

The eyewear collection you've been asking us for, these everyday sunglasses are handmade in Italy and built specifically for your offseason exploits. We named these after Prospect Hill, a Breckenridge local favorite for summertime biking, trail running, and hiking. We pulled no punches with these sunglasses:
  • Equipped with Zeiss CR lenses and anti-scratch coating.
  • UV400 protection: 100% protection from UVA and UVB rays.
  • Built with Swiss Grilamid Nylon TR90 frames.
  • Comes with protective hard case.

Translation: these are classic yet highly technical sunglasses. They are built specifically to withstand extreme heat and extreme cold without breaking, with the ideal blend of durability and lightness. 

FRAMED FOR FUN

We used the same knowledge, expertise, and processes that we have learned building goggles and applied it to The Prospect. These sunglasses marry a classic silhouette with modern optical technology and frame innovation to provide lightweight, UV-protective sunglasses that don’t budge while you're on the move. Bridging the gap between technical and tasteful, they work just as well on a day hike as they do when out for beers after the adventure is done.

THOUGHTFULLY DESIGNED

To find the balance between "fast" sunglasses, and ones that look good but slip and fog up mid-adventure, we reached out to some of the foremost designers in the world. With their help, we crafted these sunglasses as a combination of their design expertise in high-quality frames and optics with our understanding of skier's and snowboarder's offseason needs.

OUR TECHNOLOGY

Our Prospect sunglasses are made with TR90 polymer plastic - produced with Swiss technology as a thermoplastic material that is incredibly durable, flexible and adjustable. The result is a frame that’s hypoallergenic, holds its shape after contouring to your face, and is resistant to damage because of its ability to bend under pressure. Most importantly, the Prospect is extraordinarily lightweight, with a barely-there feel that stays put at high speeds.

Glade is a Breckenridge-based, 100% independent goggle and helmet company. The brand's technical specs are easy to understand and its gear is put to the test on the slopes of Breck and the surrounding backcountry.
