Randolph Engineering's Aviators have been standard issue to United States Military Pilots and NASA astronauts for over a quarter of a century. And now, for the first time, we offer them with mirrored grey lenses. The chrome models are rare. But, finding them with silver mirrored reflective lenses was impossible until now. It gets better. This model also includes a "Maintenance Equipment Kit" with spare silicone nose pads, extra screws for the temples and a screwdriver to keep your Randolph Aviator tuned to perfection. It also includes Randolph's new clamshell hard case to keep your gem in like new condition and a cleaning cloth to keep those mirrors sparkling.

This model is the same as the military issue version, but with mirrored lenses. Own the rarest of the rare, genuine Randolph military spec aviators with grey mirrored lenses.

Produced to exceed Mil-Spec Standards Mil-S-25948, they have seen combat duty in Vietnam, Kosovo, Desert Storm, and are currently in use in Afghanistan and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

So coveted by military pilots worldwide, Randolph Engineering Aviators are standard issue to air forces of Australia, Belgium, Israel, Jordan, and South Africa among others.

Randolph's emphasis on quality of materials and precision manufacturing are the principle reasons that since 1982 Randolph has been the prime supplier of sunglasses to the United States armed forces.

Randolph Aviator lenses are produced from tempered glass and meet or exceed Z80.3-1996 requirements. They block in excess of 96.5% UVA and 100% UVB ultra-violet rays. Neutral Slate Grey is the standard issue lens tint for military pilots and NASA astronauts. The frame is polished and chrome plated for durability. This is a rare Randolph model. We are just about the only retailer that carries the polished chrome frame version in the U.S. And, we may be one of a handful that offer it with mirrored lenses. In fact, Randolph doesn't offer this model on their own website. We have seen a significant increase in demand for well made chrome aviators in recent years and decided that the time was right to include the chrome Randolph to our customers.
Randolph Aviator Sunglasses

Because of precision construction, Randolph Aviators come in three sizes for proper fit. Lenses and frames are sized according to head size. The larger the head size, the larger the frame and lenses for a perfect proportional fit and proper coverage. See sizing chart below.

It's no wonder that Randolph Aviators are the preferred choice of commercial and civilian pilots as well. And, because we are a factory authorized retailer for Randolph Engineering, you'll get the full one year factory warranty and lifetime warranty for solder joint defects.

So what makes Randolph Aviators worth the price? You'll see it the moment you pull them out of the box. The polished chrome plating is the first thing you'll notice followed by the quality construction. Click on the "More Images" link just under our picture to the right to get a better view of the finish quality. These are not wimpy with weak hinges and wiggly arms. The finish is highly polished to a mirror-like sheen. Then you'll see the Randolph logo on the upper right hand lens and under the clear temple tips on the right side. Very nice touch. Next, when you put them on, they'll be surprisingly light because of the larger and very soft self-adjusting nose bridge pads that spread the weight across a larger area. They feel very comfortable. Finally, when you look in the mirror, they won't be crooked on your face requiring the obligatory tweaking and bending so common with inexpensive wire frame sunglasses. No, you won't pay the high price of other brand names, but frankly, you don't need to. Others brands may have big names, but only one is the official military issue sunglass of fliers in the United States Air Force, Navy, Marines and Army, and it's Randolph Engineering. Some 7 million have been issued to military personnel over the last 3 decades. The others are just living in the past.

The price for Randolph Aviators are the total delivered price. Others may have a similar price, but they will charge an additional $6.00 to $9.00 OR MORE for shipping and handling fees. There are no surprise charges from SDA. The price you see is the delivered price to U.S. and APO/FPO military addresses. We are sorry, but we cannot ship this item outside the United States to civilian international addresses.


Measure an existing frame by placing it on a ruler and note the width at the widest point where the temples attach. The chart below are the measurements of the Aviator for a guide.

If you don�t have a frame to go by:

Holding a ruler over your eyes easily does this measurement. Using a mirror, or have someone helping, line up the end of the ruler with one temple and then measure to the opposite temple. The reading will give you a good idea of which size frame is right for you using the "Frame Size" column from the chart below.
