Aviators—the classic style that never lost its cool factor. Who wouldn’t want to look like Maverick taking the pain to the bad guys? So, it’s no surprise that Skyhook is one of the most popular styles in the Gatorz catalog. But, for a limited time, the Skyhook is now available with a seriously cool upgrade.
Gatorz Limited-Edition Gunmetal Skyhook Frame
The lightest frame in the Gatorz catalog, the Skyhook is already available in a black frame and an array of lens colors. Available with either polarized or non-polarized lenses, Skyhooks can be found in black/smoke, sunburst, green, blue, gold, and pink mirrored. However, for a limited time, Gatorz is offering the Skyhook in a limited-edition gunmetal frame with blue mirrored lenses.
Constructed of aircraft-grade billet 7075-T6 aluminum, the frames remain lightweight and durable. Likewise, a gunmetal gray Cerakote matte finish provides additional durability for long-lasting wear. Correspondingly, this is the first frame to receive a colored Cerakote to be offered on the Skyhook frame.
As with all Gatorz, the Skyhook frame is completely adjustable to your face. Both the nosepiece and frame adjust to you and not the other way around. As a result, you get a perfect fit every time. Likewise, the thin frame sits close to the temples and does not get in the way of over-the-ear hearing protection.
Additionally, the blue mirrored lenses feature a gray base that helps reduce bright light and provides great color perception. Similarly, polarized lenses, with UV protection, help to reduce glare and eyestrain. As a result, the Skyhook is perfect for everyday use, especially on sunny days. In addition, the lenses have an anti-fog coating and are hydro-oleophobic (oil and grease repellant), maintaining clear visuals during inclement conditions.
Due to the lack of side coverage, the Skyhook is not ANSI Z87.1 rated. However, like all Gatorz eyewear, the lenses do meet or exceed ANSI Z87.1 ballistic impact requirements.
I have a pair of Gatorz and can personally attest to their comfort and durability. Adjusting the glasses for the best fit to your face really is as easy as advertised. Likewise, they are some of the lightest ballistic glasses I own, and I use them for riding my motorcycle as well as shooting sports. Although they are in the higher price category, your eyes are worth the investment.
The Gatorz Limited-Edition Gunmetal Skyhook Ballistic Glasses are available now with an MSRP of $240.00. For more info, please visit Gatorz.com.
