What materials are your shades made of?

 

All of our shades are made from an extremely lightweight and durable polycarbonate composite. The material ensures that your frames won't warp or lose shape in either extreme hot or cold environments. All lenses are polycarbonate, impact resistant, and feature 100% UV400 protection. All lenses are FDA Approved impact resistant. All of the sunglasses on our website meet the government recommendation to block 100% of all UV-A and UV-B rays. Some models are also available with polarized lenses.

All of our Blenders Eyewear comply fully with the mandatory requirements of the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1067:2003 for sunglasses and fashion spectacles.

Check the temple of your sunglasses for the lens category.
Category 3: Sunglasses, High sun glare reduction, Good UV Protection.
Category 2: Sunglasses, Medium sun glare reduction, Good UV Protection.

 

All of our colored lenses have mirror-coated reflective layers that limit the amount of light entering your eyes, so you're more comfortable in bright conditions. The outside color of our mirror-coated lenses does not affect your color perception of the world around you. 

 

What are Polarized sunglasses? What is UV400 protection?

All of our shades come with UV400 protection. UV 400 is the highest level of protection your sunglasses lenses can have. They are able to block 99-100% of harmful rays from the sun to keep your eyes safe. 

Polarized lenses have an additional anti-reflective coating of film on them that help make your vision more comfortable by reducing reflected light such as glares you get from the sun. Someone way smarter than us could probably explain how, but Polarized lenses help eliminate reflections on the water, snow, pavement, car hoods, you name it. 

 

What's the difference between each of the series?

 

The "L-Series"  frame brings some great features to your sunglasses collection ... strong ball joint hinges with no moving parts or screws. The L Series can take a pretty good beating. If you happen to sit or step on them,  there is a chance they will survive. Depending on how hard you trashed them the ball joints can detach and can be easily snapped back into place with no repairs or replacement necessary. The sizing is midway between the K Series and M Class and fits all face sizes from small to giant basketball-head. This model is available in both polarized, and 100% UV400. Start your Blenders collection here, and it may be the best decision you make all day.

Measurements: 148 mm (front), 50 mm (tall), 135 mm (arms), 10 mm (bridge)

The "M-Class" is our next progression in durability and style. It is the sturdiest and thickest frame we have. The frame is noticeably more substantial than those of the L and K Series frame and it comes with a small gold Blenders logo charm embedded on the side of each arm. The M Class frame is ideal for medium to large heads because of its spring hinges, which give it the ability to adjust perfectly and comfortably to any head size.

Measurements: 146 mm (front), 49 mm (tall), 140 mm (arms), 12 mm (bridge) 

The “A-Series” is your classic metal aviator frame. The frame is constructed of a high grade tempered metal composite, rubber arm tips, and UV 400 protected lenses. The lenses are made of a lightweight and durable polycarbonate composite that is FDA approved, impact and scratch resistant. The right lens features a laser engraved Blenders logo. 

Measurements: 142 mm (front), 50 mm (tall), 130 mm (arms), 15 mm (bridge)

The "H-Series" is a playful rounded frame that harkens back to West Coast 60's trend setters. Of course, we put a Blenders Eyewear 21st century spin on things with vibrant mirror UV400 lenses. Our H Series frame also features spring hinges, giving it the ability to adjust perfectly to any head size. Ultra-lightweight polycarbonate construction.

Measurements: 145 mm (front), 54 mm (tall), 135 mm (arms), 10 mm (bridge)
