Military Specification: Model # AF81611-G 57 mm gray light weight polycarbonate lens,140 mm earpiece,23k plated gold frames.100% UV protection.Lens color: grey-3.These are NOT polarized.Polarized lenses work okay with older analog cockpit gauges, but can make it difficult to read the displays on newer \"glass cockpit\" gauges.
Most civilian models curve around the ear, which makes for a secure fit, but makes using them with headsets or flight helmets difficult.These use the straight bayonet style earpiece which can easily be put on or taken off while wearing headsets or flight helmets.

American Optical glasses have been issued to the U.S. military and our allies for decades.The crew of Apollo 11 wore these style glasses during their historic mission to the moon.
