" I wear my Scheyden Dual RX Flip Up glasses every time I fly.
They're versatile and reliable under the challenging conditions
of aerobatic flight and changing light conditions.
In +5 and -3 G maneuvers, these glasses stay in place.
Together with my in the ear headset, they make a perfect
combination for visibility and freedom.”

A few years ago I responded to a special from your website. I knew that I was going to be in a challenging environment working with Mission Aviation Fellowship as a pilot in East Africa. My Scheyden’s are the perfect answer to the hot African sun especially when working in Kenya and Sudan.
Here, glasses not only need to protect the eyes but they have to be tough. Loading and unloading aircraft, going in and out of the sun, flying as well as completing manifests and load sheets prove the worth of the Sonoma Flip Ups. The frames are durable and my glasses have outlasted many of the lesser brands that my colleges have used. The lenses help cut through the ever present dust storms as well as cloud smoke and haze along the Nile river in the raining season. Thanks Scheyden for a great product and for protecting my eyes.

I just want to say thanks. I love my new Scheyden glasses as it is very convenient to flip them up when I need to see something in the cabin and then down again when the sun is hitting me in the face.
I especially like being able to flip them up at twilight when I don’t need them anymore without having to take them off and put them away. This was a huge help when I was on final into Long Beach and the sun was just setting.
Once the sun slipped behind the horizon, I simply flipped up the lens and forgot about them.

You guys are as good or better than Lexus (and they are amazing) in your customer service.
I recently shipped a pair of sunglasses to you on Monday for a warranty repair. Today, Friday of the same week, I received a brand new pair from you folks via FedEx.
I am a professional pilot and have been using your superior product for many, many years. These sunglasses are unsurpassed in all respects. I will continue to sing the praises of Scheyden to all of my fellow aviators.
Thank you for your great product and service!

THANK YOU for the wonderful glasses, I really like them on the bike when I'm wearing my contacts. The ride home was nicer with the glasses. The 1.5x is perfect for seeing the controls and gauges, nice to have them in focus.
The fit is perfect under the helmet for me, up or down. The photos are attached to show just how well they work. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
Again - thanks - nice product and nice people,

Thank you Scheyden.
As a fly fishing guide in Montana, I was impressed by the quality of the glasses. Good glasses are of paramount importance in all aspects of fishing and especially for guides, my eyes are my job!
Personally I like the El Captain and Monterey flip ups in the Bronze polarized lenses.
