Many years ago, I bought a pair of Scheyden Albatross at Flying Cloud Airport in Shakopee MN. I have worn that pair of sunglasses ever since. I would like to say I treated them very carefully because I liked them so much. The reality is that they have been put through the ringer over time, but they are still rock solid, and the optics are still perfect.
I have recently spent more time at the gun range and need a good pair of polycarbonate glasses for eye protection. Last week I reached out Scheyden. The customer advocate I spoke to knew exactly what I needed.
They were shipped almost immediately, and I received them this morning. The CIA Grabber was exactly what I was looking for. The construction and clarity of the lenses where perfect. Even my wife loved them( I think she will get a pair now).
Again, thanks for the sunglasses and the top-notch service.
"I just got the sunglasses and absolutely love them! Let me tell you that the photos on-line do no justice to the glasses. Can’t believe how light yet sturdy they feel. They fit perfectly well. I’m so looking forward to go flying in Miami on Saturday with my new sunglasses.
Thanks a lot for all your help with n the ordering process and for making it a breeze. I’ll be your unofficial brand ambassador in Miami and in Latam!"
“I have had my Scheyden “Albatross” sunglasses for about 6 years. I dropped them once and sent them back to company to replace the broken len. Fixed, cleaned and returned promptly. Never wear anything else when flying LOVE THE GLASSES”
"The Scheyden C130 Sunglasses are amazing. I’ve worn many high end sunglasses, and there’s simply no comparison. The fit, comfort, and clarity of these sunglasses are beyond any that I have previously worn in the cockpit. The bronze lens cuts through the haze of a low setting sun without masking the cockpit instruments. When I put these sunglasses on the clarity of my surroundings become sharp and brilliant with just the right amount of contrast. Fantastic visual performance in the flight levels as well as on the ground. The rugged case, along with the included cleaning cloth is perfect for keeping them protected in the rigors of an airline environment. The lightweight titanium frame ensures I don’t feel fatigued after multiple legs. They’re the first thing I have on prior to pushback of the A320, and the last thing I remove after blocking in. Recommending to all my friends serious about aviation and optimum visual acuity. Finally, customer service is amazing! Kudos to Amanda! Truly a high performance company with high performance products enhancing your most valuable asset - your vision.
Thank you Scheyden!"
