Gear Notes

• Weight 29 grams

The Aiguille (French for “needle”, or “sharp rock summit”) is made in France and offers a face-hugging fit for medium faces without prominent cheekbones. Because of the degree of “wrap” to the frame, those with big cheeks or small nose-bridges may get a better fit with one of our flatter styles. The Aiguille features removeable side-shields and also a removeable brow-piece above the bridge to help really block out the bad rays in intensely bright conditions.

Tough, flexible Black Grylamid nylon frame with adjustable-length temples and rubber-coated earpieces.

Neutral-curve (6-base) Dark-Brown optically correct injection-molded (not laminated, so can’t delaminate and offers optical-quality clarity) polarized, hard-coated polycarbonate lenses.

Magnesium-Fluoride anti-reflective back-coat on lens cuts glare from behind.

Lens transmission stats: 8% Vis; 2% Blue; 0.02% UVA; <0.1% UVB

These are sweet little glasses. Nothing fancy, but they fit well, protect well, are durable, good value, and they look pretty good too!

Great sunglasses for the glacier travel and climbing. Fit both me and my gf perfectly!

Very good price/quality value and a cheaper alternative to goggles.
