You know what’s rad? The men and women of the United States Armed Forces.

Pit Viper sunglasses have a pretty unique connection to the military badasses that serve good ol’ Uncle Sam. The sunglasses company began when the company’s ski bum founders, Chuck Mumford and Chris Garcin, bought a stash of military surplus sunglasses and started slinging them with colorful, hand-painted designs. The shades were a huge hit with action sports enthusiasts looking to embrace a ’90s throwback vibe. When the military surplus well ran dry, the company launched a Kickstarter campaign in 2015 to bring Z87 safety-rated shades inspired by vintage Army SPECs to market.

The vision for a truly disruptive sunglasses company took off and, voilà, the Pit Viper craze as we know it was born.

Now Pit Viper is growing their catalog with a special collection, designed with military members in mind.

Pit Viper just launched three ballistics-rated sunglass models – the BALL-ISTIC Pit Vipers – made specifically for military personnel.

The new Pit Viper BALL-ISTIC line features three military-specific Pit Viper 2000s that feature 100% UV protection, 11% light transmission, and a ballistic-rated 2.2mm polycarbonate lens, designed for impact resistance.

According to Pit Viper, these models also feature a non-mirrored lens, matte colors, anti-slip rubberized frames, and laser-etched logos to prevent reflection, as requested by military personnel.

It other words, they’re the first Pit Viper sunglasses completely designed to be tactical, with the military in mind.

 

Cost? $129.99.

“We are thrilled to come full circle and release BALL-ISTIC Pit Vipers,” said co-founder, Garcin in a statement. “We’ve come a long way from our original product, and are proud to create the first-ever Pit Vipers made specifically to be worn in uniform.”

In celebration of Veterans Day, Pit Viper will donate up to 1,200 pairs of BALL-ISTIC sunglasses to military personal with the purchase of a pair, while supplies last. The brand will also be giving out sunglasses to military members at this weekend’s Washington Football Team game, in conjunction with Salute To Service.

The Buy One Give One promotion celebrates the sacrifices of those who have fought to protect this good time and freedom of expression.
