Scheyden Precision Eyewear recently added two new models to its product lineup. The Albatross and the Mustang add to Scheyden’s extensive aviation-minded offerings.
According to the company, the Albatross model is similar to classic aviators and will suit any face type. The Mustang model is a larger frame, better suited to medium to large faces, a Scheyden representative said.
Both styles bridge the gap between classic thin-framed sunglasses and newer fashion glasses, meaning they have an appeal beyond the cockpit, but still fit well behind a headset.
Lens options include plastic polymer (CR39), mineral glass, and polarization. The glasses retail between $299 and $329.
