What do reptiles (as a species) and sunwear have in common? They both need to adapt to the elements and different climates on land and water. Combine these qualities with timeless styling and you have beautiful, wearable, and comfortable Reptile Polarized Sunglasses.
With names like Venom, Slither, Fang, and Gator, the plastic frame models in the Reptile collection are sleek and stylish. These sunglasses are hypoallergenic due to their natural composition of up to 90% cotton fiber and the finest proprietary blend of Mazzucchelli acetate. Hand polishing brings out the colors that are embedded in the material, not sprayed on like some other molded frames.
Metal models such as Rattler, King Snake, and Cobra 2, are made of monel. This enables them to be comfortable, balanced, and structurally strong. Add monoblock spring hinges and you have one tough sunglass to wear during your favorite outdoor activities.

The final Reptile Skin™ adds an oil and waterproof coating. Polynium lenses have an additional Croc-Armor™, a hardcoating the company claims delivers the industry’s toughest scratch protection.
