Field of View

Our eyes allow us to gather and process essential visual information in everyday life! When we engage in activities such as motorsports, military and tactical operations and cycling, the amount of visual information, especially in the peripheral directions, has a direct impact on our performance and safety. That’s why Arclite eyewear products have an unprecedented amount of horizontal and vertical field of view.

Optical Performance

Good vision is critical for active outdoor activities and it is vital that the quality of our visual information is optimized. Arclite lenses have optical performance and clarity that stands out among the competition. Your eyes will thank you for wearing Arclites when you experience far less eye-strain and eye-fatigue.

Aerospace Titanium Alloy and Advanced Engineering Polymers

High performance eyewear requires high performance advanced materials. Arclite frames and lenses are made of aerospace titanium alloys, high molecular weight polymers and other advanced materials that give our products the highest level of functionality, performance and durability.

Virtually Indestructible

Arclite products have been dropped, bent, twisted, stepped on, crashed, run over and hit by high-velocity projectiles, and have survived! Our products can take whatever you can dish out and they will be there to serve you day after day.

Laser Etched Lenses

We feel that the details make a difference and we go that extra mile to put finishing touches on our products. We’re proud of what we produce, which is why we laser etch our lenses! Laser engraving will last along with our very long product lifespan.

Worn by the Best

Arclite products have been worn by our most elite warriors in the toughest of situations. US Navy SEALs, US Army Special Forces, FBI HRT and FBI SWAT have all used our products in training, in real-world operations, and in the most fiercest combat in recent history.

  1. Jake Hutchinson

    I’ve had the luxury of using the ArcLite for a few years through it’s R&D process. They have listened to the users and refined and created a product I use for a variety of purposes. They are great on my motorcycle, I love them for shooting and they’ve become my absolute favorite eye protection in the welding shop. I hammer these things, wear them all day and I’ve had zero issues with durability, clarity or comfort. Definitely give them a try!

  2. Joe Comfort

    I was introduced to Arclite Optics in 2015-2016 and have been using them since. The 2 most notable benefits beyond the impact protection for me is how comfortable they are, allowing them to be worn all day in conjunction with over the ear hearing protection. I also like how the design of the frame/lens doesn’t obstruct my vision when shooting prone and viewing through a riflescope.

  3. Brandon

    I can see everything with these in all directions! My sight is not obstructed like other glasses I have used.

  4. Jay

    When it’s really hot I go to these sunglasses instead of my goggles. I love em!

  5. KDM

    Awesome product!

  6. D.E.B.

    Pretty good.

    I’ve been looking for a pair of sunglasses for all of my outdoor pursuits–paragliding, skiing, mtn & road biking, hiking, trail running, and an occasional ride on a motorbike. I’ve been looking for something with more coverage, less view obstruction, lower tendency to fog up, comfortable, fit well, easy to clean, and a pair that will hold up well over time. I tend to get dry eyes while on the move (esp paragliding and on a motorcycle), as well as drip sweat and fog up glasses really easily. This is a tough balance to get, as better coverage usually means more fogging. I’ve only had these for about 3 months, but I use them 3-5 times a week. They’re great! They have performed better than any pair I’ve had, based on points I mentioned. Time will tell for durability, but so far, not a scratch, and I can tell they are constructed well (I’m a mech engineer). I find myself wearing them more than I thought I would (outside of outdoor activities) because the optics seem really good and they’re easy to clean. However, you might want to have another pair in your quiver for around town–they can be a bit in-your-face (no pun intended) if you want a casual nondescript look. For what they’re designed for, they look awesome!

    I wear contact lenses, and I was looking for glasses that are sturdy and fit well with my motorcycle helmets. I just got the Ethos and they are very well built, they fit my face perfectly. Counting that I live in Italy, they also arrived quickly. Sorry for the English, I used a translator.
