Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to team up with the fine folks over at Gargoyles Eyewear for this review, and they sent me their classic aviator style eyewear: known as PACE. Gargoyles is known for their performance eyewear, with high quality and fashionable frames and high end lenses. The PACE is no different with its polycarbonate lenses that exceed ANSI Z87.1+ protection requirements for high mass and high velocity impact. The lenses reflect a subtly blue-purple tone that provides the user with optimum clear vision while protecting the eye from harmful ultraviolet light. Upon first inspection and trial, the lenses of the PACE model sunglasses exceeded my expectations; the quality of the optics are immediately apparent.
When you’re holding the PACE sunglasses, they feel good, and built to last. I found the PACE model by Gargoyles Sunglasses to be a great choice to majority of my trips abroad; not only because they are quality made, but also because of their “Do The Right Thing” warranty and the protection provided by their unique and edgy eyewear case that comes with every pair. Initially, I was impressed by the sleek and modern style, then I became impressed with the quality of the frames and lenses, although if you have a bigger head, they may not fit perfectly. But the fitting is subjective to each person, and may only require a different style choice.
