Winner of Backpacker Magazine's Best Overall Eyewear 2021
"I immediately incorporated Glade’s affordable Prospect Sunglasses into my regular rotation. These sunnies have the simple good looks I crave but are made with burly Grilamid thermoplastic frames and anti-scratch lenses, so I know they’re always up for the ride."
—Ariella Gintzler, Associate Gear Editor, Outside Magazine
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.
- 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.
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.
