Seen in countless movies over the years ranging from Top Gun, to most recently Flight of the Phoenix worn by actor Dennis Quaid, Randolph Engineering has never paid for product inclusion in movies. That's because when producers and directors want authenticity in their movies, they select Randolph aviator sunglasses. Others may claim to be "military aviators", but only one company is the prime contract supplier to the U.S. Air Force, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, NASA and Army... and that's Randolph Engineering.
Made in the USA - All Randolph products have been meticulously handcrafted at their facility in Randolph, Massachusetts since 1972. Utilizing only the finest materials available to the industry, Randolph's American craftsmen and women bring to you one of the world's best sunglasses. Over the years, Randolph has retained an integrated manufacturing approach with the end benefit being a level of American made quality, craftsmanship and comfort unequaled in the industry.

All Randolph frames are built to ophthalmic quality standards. Due to these demanding standards, Randolph frames are suitable for conversion to Rx prescription lenses in all their models.
Lifetime Solder Joint Guarantee:
Randolph feels so strongly about it's quality that they will repair or replace any broken solder joint for the lifetime of the product assuming normal use. We talked with one of Randolph's management recently and they told us quite proudly of a customer who returned his 19-year-old Randolph aviator sunglass for a broken solder joint. Randolph took care of the customer, no charge.
All Randolph products are designed and manufactured with quality, function, and performance as the key components. We then wrap this technology into a classic or contemporary design that will give customers years of satisfaction. Randolph designs incorporate a high degree of comfort resulting in hours of extended wear. While fashion may fade in and out of the consumer marketplace, the quality found in Randolph product will never go out of style.
Randolph's 18% nickel silver frames provide unequaled strength and solder joint integrity. The sleek monel frames offer a slender profile and secure fit. They do not compromise quality even when selecting something as trivial as a lens screw. The nose pads are made of soft silicone so that the frames will not slip even under conditions of heavy perspiration.
Every frame is hand polished prior to plating or coloration. The gold frames incorporate a heavy 23 karat gold plate; the matte black finishes consist of a durable three step process; state of the art gold and silver finishes are applied on selected fashion styles; and our elegant Ruthenium (gun metal) finish will last a lifetime. All frames are topped off with corrosion resistant clear coat that further protects the product.
Mineral Crown Glass Lenses:
Randolph's mineral lenses are ground and polished to precise optical distortion-free standards. Optically ground glass lenses provide the highest level of visual acuity, which is why it's used in high quality cameras and telescopes. Glass lenses offer the best scratch resistant properties of all lens materials. In addition, every Randolph glass lens is chem-tempered to resist breakage; then 100% drop-ball tested to meet FDA and ANSI standards (glass lenses are not shatterproof). Randolph offers three lens colors on selected modes; Neutral Gray, AGX (gray/green) and a High Contrast Tan.
Maximum UV Absorption:
All lenses absorb 98-100% of harmful ultraviolet rays.
Maximum Glare Reduction:
Lenses are designed to help check harsh direct or indirect glare.
Optimum Visible Transmittance:
Lens densities (darkness) allow only 15-18% of pass-through light; the ideal comfort level for most wearers, and the recommended light transmission for military and commercial pilots.
Neutral Gray Mineral (US Military Issue):
Randolph Neutral Gray lenses offers absolute true color reception. Worn by U.S. Military pilots and NASA astronauts; colors come through naturally resulting in hours of comfort. Light reaches the eye with the same color compositions that it had before passing through the lens.
High Contrast Tan Mineral:
Randolph Tan lenses, although lacking the neutrality of gray and green lenses, are also widely accepted of those needing eye protection on bright overcast days. This lens will cut off the transmittance of easily scattered blue light, thus having the effect of increasing contrast and visual acuity. This lens will perform well in low light situations encountered in haze and fog.
AGX (gray/green) Mineral:
Known as the "All American Gray", this lens has a slight green tint to it, making it the most popular sunglass tint on the market. AGX selectively filters the colors of the spectrum so that their transmittance curve closely resembles the sensitivity curve of the eye. Thus colors are only slightly changed. Evidence indicates that the eye's focusing system is largely keyed to the green wavelengths of the spectrum. Because green and gray lenses do not shift the color balance away from green they do not disturb the eye's focusing system. The result? Vision stays sharp through lenses of these colors.
