American Optical - Original Pilot (Bayonet Temple)
The Original Pilot has been a favorite of U.S. military pilots since 1958. Expect uncompromising quality - engineered to rigid military specifications. Wear it for life, it’s a look that never goes out of style.
The lenses in the Original Pilot are made from glass, which offers superior scratch-resistance and optical clarity when compared to plastic or nylon lenses.
Choosing the right lens for you:
Grey Lenses are the most neutral option, as they control the brightness of light without affecting color perception, but do not provide the contrast of green or brown lenses.
Green Lenses provide a balance between the color neutrality of grey lenses and the high-contrast provided by brown lenses.
Brown Lenses are excellent for providing contrast and reducing brightness at the expense of not having a color neutral tint.
