American Optical "General" Sunglasses

Product Description

These Glasses are engineered to rigid military specifications and issued to millions of U.S. soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen since 1958.

The rugged and sturdy structure and high quality finishing of the steel alloy frame coupled with distortion free, toughened and polished True Color® glass lens have made the AO Flight Gear® Collection the standard bearer of all fine military sunglasses.

The lenses are "True Grey" and the Temples are "Wire Spatula."

The AO heritage began in 1826, but it was in 1958 that the Flight Goggle 58, now known as the Original Pilot Sunglass was produced for the US military to provide pilots with maximum protection, optical performance and comfort. Right to the present time, the Original Pilot is still being manufactured in the AO complex in Southbridge, Massachusetts.

For one year from date of purchase, AO Eyewear will repair or replace this eyewear (at their option) if defective in material workmanship

Great Sunglasses
  • Well made sunglasses with glass lenses. No scratched up plastic lenses with these sunglasses. They fit snug enough to not slide around or fall off when looking down. The lenses are dark enough to drive directly into the setting sun and still be able to see. But they are not real, real dark.Gave these to my son for his birthday. He loves them! He is a pretty big guy, so I purchased the large sunglasses and they look great on him! MarvGolden's service couldn't be beat. A great product at a great price with no bs or hem-hawing around. Placed order and in a couple days here is my order at my front door. I definitely will do more business with them.
  • Pros: Good product, good service, good price
  • Cons: none

  • Excellent sunglasses with outstanding quality. Was an oakley man forever but got tired of poly lenses scratching up. Their military heritage is a testiment to the build quality.These glass lenses should last quite a considerable bit longer. Fast shipping, amazing customer service (thank you Tyson). Would not hesitate purchasing from Marv's in the future. If only all online shopfronts could be this good. Thanks again Marv golden
  • Pros: Build quality, glass lenses, history!
  • Cons: Get size correct to ensure proper fit
Great item at great price.
  • Real thing at a great price. Hard to beat.
Outstanding quality and durability
  • I've been wearing AO glasses for the past 35 years. My present pair are 4 years old and I just took them to my eye Dr to have new corrective lenses installed and he told me the frames wear in great shape. Saved me $125 over new frames. I've also tryed Rayban glasses in the past, but my AO's are half the price and last much longer. Keep up the quality AO.
A quality product
  • I ordered these instead of the twice as expensive Ray-Ban 3025, of which I also have a pair, and I couldn't be more pleased. They are sturdy and solid, and the lenses are just gorgeous. Of course, only time will tell how well these stand up after use, but if they were good enough for WWII pilots, I'm sure that they aren't too shabby. I heartily recommend this product.
