Prospect Sunglasses

Regular price $74.99

"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.

Super Stylish and Functional

Bought these for days on the water even though it’s currently winter. But figured I didn’t want them to sell out like the goggles. But have used them cross country skiing, backcountry touring, uphill at the resort. And they do not disappoint. Seriously, love the rose gold lens. Get a ton of compliments from friends. Work well. Fit well. Protect from sun. And I know just by wearing them they are going to be great for paddleboarding. Cannot wait.


Great affordable pair of of glasses. I use them every day. There is a small yellowish blemish on the temple of one side. I haven’t been able to remove it. It’s pretty obvious against the forest color. Otherwise best pair of shades I own.

Glade optics sunglasses

These glasses are sick. Durable and stylish, be prepared to get tons of compliments. Way better than overpriced competitors.

Fantastic Glasses!

Have worn these a few weeks now, the Forest with light green lens. They are amazing, I was surprised how early in the morning I could use them while driving. They barely darken the early morning light at all..and yet, once full sunlight is out..they are cutting all the glare, remain extremely comfortable; maybe the first pair of sunglasses I've ever had that I can wear all day long, amazing. Such cool sunglasses, the fit is perfect for me, I love the style..and what a great buy! Thanks - and think Snow!!
