Zeal Optics Ellume Challenge

Zeal set out to put our ellume lenses to the test in our backyard of Boulder, CO. A quick stop on Pearl Street Mall and Chautauqua Park proved to be the perfect sun-drenched testing grounds to demonstrate the color-enhancing clarity and craftsmanship in our plant-based, polarized lenses. Don't take our word for it; see for yourself.

Fly Glasses

    I put these on and I feel like I'm on top of the world. They fit my face great and large lens provides great vision. Blocks the sun and will save your eyes.


    You are probably thinking Tom, but oh no, this frame is a throwback to the lesser-known John Sawyer. This rebellious younger brother, whose exploits, tales and legends far outweigh those of Tom, was always up for any adventure. And, it is safe to say; John Sawyer just wasn’t into painting fences.

    I'm on my third pair of these now. First pair, I managed to drop on a hike in the Wyoming backcountry somewhere. Second pair I fumbled while riding my bike and they landed directly in front of the tire... crunch! Luckily, Backcountry still carried these guys... they are hands-down my favorite sunglasses. They're light, comfortable, look rad, and the lenses... well, once you go polarized, you'll probably never go back. They offer super crisp vision and a good amount of shade in bright sunlight without distorting colors or dulling your view. Due to my klutzy nature, I'm thinking of even buying a fourth pair just to have back-ups.
