Premium take on the classic Aviator style

There is probably no more versatile style of sunglasses than the classic Aviator. Look at it this way: they were worn by both Johnny Depp as Hunter S. Thompson in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and by Tom Cruise as Maverick in Top Gun. Which just goes to show, it doesn’t matter if you’re tripping in the Nevada desert in a Chevy Caprice or buzzing the tower in an F-14 Tomcat, the Aviator shape has got you covered. First developed back in the 1930s for US Army Air Corps pilots, Aviators combined slim, minimalist frames with convex teardrop lenses for optimum protection from glare. The Astra is Sunski’s own take on that unmistakeable military-influenced design, from their premium range. It’s a full-coverage, medium-sized frame that is great for everyday and active wear

    • Ethically Sourced Materials - Sunski couldn't find a sustainable material they liked, so they invented their own. SuperLight recycled resin is stronger, lighter, and more comfortable than anything on the market. SuperLight is created from scrap plastic that would otherwise end up in a USA landfill. Sunski intercept this scrap plastic from the waste stream and reformulate it into their SuperLight polycarbonate resin.
    • Supports Eco-Initiatives - Sunski is a member of the One Percent for the Planet, an international non-profit organisation where members contribute at least one percent of their annual sales to environmental causes.
  • US brand Sunski, based in sunny California, do things differently. All their styles are 100% original, designed from scratch at their studio in San Francisco. From the outset they prioritised style, fit, performance, value and sustainability. That means honest pricing, great looking frames, premium polarised lenses, high-quality components and a comfortable fit all day long, without squeezing or pinching. Sunski are so confident you’ll love your shades that they offer a lifetime warranty.

    Maybe most importantly though, the brand also uses their own Superlight recycled polycarbonate resin in all their frames, rescuing scrap plastic from landfill and turning it into sunglasses. Their packaging is also plastic-free. The company is completely carbon neutral and are part of 1% for the Planet, supporting environmental causes year on year.

    TL, DR? Great sunglasses designed for outdoorsy people, made from recycled stuff. Now, go have some fun.

Very light, very stylish. Very good build quality.
