WHY SHOOTERS NEED "2A" SPECIFIC EYEWEAR

It’s no secret that as shooters and hunters, we face unique challenges. Questions like will these sunglasses be comfortable with my earpro? Will they protect my eyes from ricochets when shooting steel? Will they stay comfortable through hours of glassing? are just a few of the things that need to be considered when choosing a pair of sunglasses.

Most eyewear brands don’t have a background in the 2A community so they don’t design their sunglasses specifically for the unique needs of shooters.

Here are 6 things to look for when choosing your next pair of sunglasses:

1. Comfortable Under Ear Pro

Headaches caused by ear protection squeezing sunglasses against your head are no fun. To avoid this, look for sunglasses with thin temples just above the ear which will reduce the pressure. A good pair of sunglasses should have temples designed to work well under earmuffs.

2. Razor Sharp Optics

Whether it’s quickly picking up on clays in the sky or spotting deer in the backcountry, optical clarity is make or break. While there are lots of technologies to choose from, as a shooter you’re going to want lenses that improve depth perception, enhance color contrast and amplify color.

3. Eye Protection

At a minimum you’re going to want something with shatterproof lenses (glass lenses are a HUGE no-go). Extra points if it offers a ballistic protection rating like ANSI Z87.1.

Remember, you don’t need to spend $150+ to find a solid pair of glasses, but just make sure they offer the right level of protection.

4. Durable

Shooters are not known to go easy on their gear - and for good reason. Train how you fight and in a SHTF scenario your gear better do its job. Sunglasses are no different and should be able to take any abuse your throw their way and should be backed with a lifetime warranty for good measure.

5. All Day Comfort

“Forget you’re wearing them comfort” is a real thing that I've found starts in the $50-$100 sunglasses range (sorry cheap gas station glasses). Especially on long hunts, eyewear should feel like an extension of yourself rather than something you’re constantly fiddling with. Luckily though, you don’t need to spend $100+ to find that set-it-and-forget-it pair of sunglasses.

6. Multi-Purpose

I like buying eyewear that is versatile so that I can use it when hunting, shooting, driving or in everyday life. That means it has to be stylish while also meeting the 5 requirements mentioned above. This is definitely not mandatory but something I personally look for because I like to get the most bang for my buck.

ABOUT STNGR

Founded by father and son in Allen, Texas, STNGR is a small family run business created with one mission - to support the 2A community with reliable gear and accessories they could depend on sold at a radically fair price. We do that by cutting out the retail markup and selling directly to you, the consumer.

As hunters and shooters, we always felt that finding quality parts was a disheartening and frustrating process.

Buying from big name brands always made us feel like we were getting the short end of the stick - especially with sunglasses. We always wondered how a piece of molded plastic could cost $200+?

More affordable options weren't much better. After the hundredth time of buying cheap sunglasses that broke or couldn’t handle the abuse on the range, we had had enough. STNGR was born.

Top quality sunglasses shouldn’t break the bank. You deserve the best at a fair price, so why do other companies not think so?

We’re a small Texas business looking to make a big impact. Through premium products, radically fair pricing, our unique direct to consumer business model, and your unbelievable support we’re on a mission to change the way sunglasses and accessories are bought and sold.

Since 2016, we've served over 60,000 incredible Americans and we're starting a movement to make top quality affordable and free of artificial retail markups.

Our guarantee is that you will be 100% satisfied with your purchase or your money back. We know how hectic day to day life truly is, which is why we make it as easy as possible to get help when you need it.

Whenever you send us an email or message, you can be certain that there is a real person on the other side ready to assist you.

We love talking and interacting with the 2A community, and are always willing to chat.

Thank you so much for taking precious time out of your day to be with us. We wish you the best and hope you have an amazing day!

"I DON't write reviews, but I can't say enough good things about these sunglasses.

"Far Exceed Any Sunglasses I Have Purchased Before!"

"I have purchased every sunglass manufacturer that has existed in the last 20 years. You name the company, I have bought a pair of their sunglasses. Ray-Ban, Revo, Serengeti, Persol, Oakley, Smith, Maui Jim, Costa Del Mar...you get the picture. My point being is that the design, materials, durability, appearance, clarity, price, and fit of the STNGR Alpine far exceed any sunglasses I have purchased before!"

Jeff R.

"High Quality, Reasonably Priced"

"I have problems with getting headaches wearing sunglasses for long periods of time. These glasses don’t do that. They have rubberized parts making them feel planted to your face. I recommend them if you’re looking for an alternative to an active based sunglasses company such as Costa or Oakley. They have more features, appear to be more durable, and have the same level of lens and frame quality, if not better, at half the price."

Nathanael

"Awesome Product & Awesome Company!"

"I'm a bit of a sunglasses fanatic and have a current rotation of over two dozen pairs from all of the major brands, including Oakley, Maui Jim, Ray Ban, WileyX, Rudy Project, Gatorz and several others. I'm particularly fond of tactical sunglasses, due to my background and also being an avid shooter. [..] I am very, very pleased with these. [...] You cannot go wrong with STNGR.”
